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 »

Tu Sei Come
26 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of those Col. Tom Parker-ish vehicles for the rising pop musician, but even at their worst, the Elvis movies would manage a moment of wit that made them bearable. Little Rita nel West is a decidedly inferior offering in the category. All but one of the musical numbers terrible, with star Rita Pavone English-dubbed for dialogue, Italian lip-synched for the songs. The Monkees did this sort of thing better. Little Rita is one big labored joke, a clunky spoof of spaghetti Westerns so lacking in subtlety that it's easy to tell that the movie was made for an audience no older than twelve. Little Rita's appearance in defiance of her chronological age seems to have been expressly engineered for that demographic. Then after an hour of cinematic imbecility she sings "Tu Sei Come", a longing, melancholy ballad perfectly shot day for night, and with one song nearly redeems this silly movie.
