Trivia

In an obvious attempt to exploit the later success of Trinita played by Terence Hill, this film was re released in France with all the music sequences edited out and the character of Black Star baptized Trinita. A certain amount of jocks and puns was also added in the French translation of the dialogue supposedly to reinforce the comical dimension of the film. See more »

The Pest Of The West
29 May 2014 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Little Rita Pavone is on a holy mission, given to her by Indian chief Gordon Mitchell, to steal and destroy the root of all evil, all the gold in the west!

With Rita singing over the bodies of murdered people, laughing at other people's demise, and stealing gold, she seems more like the villain than the hero!

Though a terminally silly musical-comedy, this has a few modest things going for it, like good production values, photography (by Trinity creator Enzo Barboni), and an all-star cast that includes Terence Hill, Kirk Morris, Fernando Sancho, and a slew of other familiar European faces. However, the plot and musical numbers are pretty bad.

There is some novelty value to be had though, especially for those that endeavor to see every spaghetti western ever made, with a lot of it's latter-day notoriety having to do with Rita's showdown with a surprisingly accurate depiction of Django, looking almost exactly as he did at the end of the first film.
