Trivia

Producer Dino De Laurentiis made this spaghetti western with the intention of replicating the success of A Fistful of Dollars (1964) after that movie had become a box-office hit. De Laurentiis wanted to find an American actor to rival Clint Eastwood's popularity. Reynolds had appeared in TV westerns and was part Cherokee Indian. De Laurentiis persuaded Reynolds to sign on.

Underrated Pre-Django Corbucci Western
24 July 2006 | by (Salzburg, Austria) – See all my reviews

Navajo Joe may not be as brilliant as Sergio Corbucci's Masterpieces Django and The Great Silence, but it is still a very good Spaghetti Western. Like most Westerns by Corbucci, Navajo Joe has a sociocritical message, as it portrays racism and the genocide of the Native American population. Predominantely, however, Navajo Joe is a very entertaining Spaghetti Western with an excellent score by Ennio Morricone.

A gang of unscrupulous bandits led by atrocious Duncan (Aldo Sambrell) ride through the American Southwest and kill every Indian they can find for the one-dollar reward on an Indian scalp. Joe (Burt Reynolds), a Navajo warrior and merciless avenger, starts haunting the scalp-hunters and soon becomes their worst nightmare.

Burt Reynolds is decent enough as the eponymous hero. Reynolds is certainly not a great Spaghetti Western antihero, but he fits the role better than one would suppose. Nicoletta Macchiavelli does a good job as Estella, a beautiful half Indian half white woman who lives in a white community. The best performance in this movie, however, comes from Aldo Sambrell in the role of the villainous scalp-hunter Duncan, a despiteous man who is nothing but greed and concentrated hate. The score by Ennio Morricone is brilliant as always, Quentin Tarantino used some of it for Kill Bill Vol.2. If you like Spaghetti Westerns, you have to love Sergio Corbucci. Navajo Joe is not quite as brilliant as his masterpieces "Django" and "The Great Silence", but it is without doubt a more than worthwhile Spaghetti Western and highly recommended to every fan of the genre.
