Lock me in that prison or aeroplane!
21 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

By claiming that Navajo Joe was only shown in prisons and aeroplanes because nobody could leave, it is fair to assume that Burt Reynolds was not too impressed by his Spaghetti Western experience! What an understatement, he thought it was awful. Oh Burt, how very very wrong you are. Navajo Joe is a very fine Spaghetti Western indeed.

Corbucci's direction is fantastic, right from the off - a powerful scene where Duncan (played by Spaghetti stalwart Aldo Sanbrell) spies on a young Indian girl. They smile at each other before he shoots and scalps her. It becomes apparent from this moment on that Duncan is a callous and psychopathic killer - just what every good Spaghetti Western needs.

Reynolds dialogue is brief, which is very fitting for his character. And he plays the role superbly. The story powers on at great tempo and contains all the trademarks of a Corbucci movie - lots of deaths, a spoonful of unjust and some great camera work - all to the soundtrack of a powerful Morricone score.

Life in that Prison seems quite comfortable to me, Burt!
