Did You Know?


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 »

Must Be Seen To Be Believed
22 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My hobby is watching bad movies. Every week I watch about 20 bad movies. Really bad movies. I try and seek out the most obscure and bizarre films I can possibly find. After 'The Gods Must Be Crazy' parts 3 and 4 I thought I'd seen it all. Just before this I watched a French Nazixploitation film starring Brigitte Lahaie and it barely phased me. So as you can tell I've built up a tolerance. But I am just at a loss for words to describe this film!

So it's obvious this is a spaghetti western about a female gunfighter. Nothing odd here, there are plenty of spaghetti westerns like 'The Good the Bad and the Ugly' there are plenty of westerns with female leads. And it's a comedy parody of westerns, no problem, there have been many parodies of westerns like 'Blazing Saddles' and 'Support Your Local Sheriff.' And it's a musical, no problem, there have been many western musicals like 'Paint Your Wagon Red.' Combining all FOUR of these themes is pushing it.

My point is, I went in to this knowing it was spaghetti western parody musical with a female lead. But nothing of 38 years on this earth could prepare me for this!!! This is something which must truly be seen to be believed!!!

At 6:00 in we truly enter a parallel universe!

The only way to describe it is that the characters who up until now have been dubbed to English break into a rock and roll dance number in Italian which I can only compare to an Elvis Presley movie. 48 hours later I still can't get the tune out of my head even though all the lyrics were in Italian.

The music and singing this film are done very well. Remember, it's all rock and roll and all in Italian.

So after that I was unfazed by anything which happened after that. And A LOT of bizarre things do happen. It turns out Little Rita has been robbing stage coaches for the Indians so they can gather all the white man's evil gold and destroy it. NOT KIDDING that's the plot! Obviously it would be impossible for one person to amass the entire world's gold and it's impossible to destroy gold! It's an element. You can melt it down but it's impossible to destroy.

Anyway, first Little Rita must battle the evil gun fighter Ringo. Yes, Ringo! She does this by strapping a golden RPG to her .45 and blowing him up. Whatever... I'm still in a daze from 6:00. I guess John, Paul, and George must now avenge his death.

This isn't the last time Little Rita uses her golden RPGs to win a gunfight. She takes out an entire gang of Mexican bandits with one blast.

Finally after a few more musical numbers Little Rita "returns to where she came from." and just rides her horse into outer space! Yup, I'm not making up any of this. So she's an alien and her horse is a space ship? Still not as shocking as what happens at 6:00.

So yes I would endorse this film. It is highly entertaining. I loved it. Just be prepared for an out of body experience. Your brain may have a hard time processing this. After 48 hours mine still hasn't. I'm still in a total daze.
