one big punch up
2 September 2013 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

Also known as, Crucified Girls of San Ramon, although I don't know why and 3 bastards and 7 Sinners on my copy, this had great trash potential but was ultimately just too much for director, Ernest R von Theumer, who was more used to producing. Much is seemingly filmed on exotic locations which are presumably Middle Eastern but certainly a mix of beautiful and bleak and with numerous extras and a pack of horses to deal with this must have become quite an enterprise. Anyway, apart from the arduous scenes as an excellent, Tony Kendall leads his ladies across the inhospitable landscape, there is time for naked frolics, rape, torture and flogging - so its not all boring stuff! Gordon Mitchell is effective, though somewhat over the top, as his arch opponent and there is much fighting and shooting. The girls get a go with the guns too so plenty of variety as the story which had begun in a prison, pops into a nunnery skirts the spaghetti western genre and toys with the white slave trade, really just ends up one big punch up.
