And he aims his gun at him. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Did You Know?

Goofs

After Tepepa blows up their wagon, he fires at the Mexican troops on the ground with his Mauser C96. The model he uses is a standard ten round integral magazine version. He clearly fires more than ten rounds, without reloading. In fact the gun is never reloaded throughout the entire movie. See more »

A wonderful mexican western with Mr. Citizen Kane himself - Orson Welles
19 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

If you like action-packed westerns, then you'll be in for a treat when you see the marvelous masterpiece, "Blood and Guns." It has a great cast, fantastic acting, and it takes a common "good guys vs. bad guys" plot and turns it into a memorable viewing experience through humor, tragedy, and most importantly, Orson Welles. There has never been a film like this before or after its release. It's a true original! What other movie uses billy goats strapped with dynamite to attract the enemy? What other movie shows Orson Welles shooting at a man on a horse going around a little red car in cirlces? None. There is an evil doctor with a chin bigger than Jay Leno's. There is a great battle scene between the peasants and the mexican brown-suits. Tomas Milian, who played Tomas F. Dobb in a spanish version of "Revolution", is the man with the big black sombrero who taunts Orson Welles until he learns his lesson from the big man himself. There's the naive mexican boy. The frightened citizens. The violence. And Orson Welles, who actuually trips near the end of the film and the director left it in. A classic! It's very hard to find. Get it if you can.
