In the 19th century, when the Japanese Emperor sends a gift pony to the US President it gets stolen and ransomed by Indians but Sheriff Gideon aided by an inept Japanese servant offers to deliver the ransom.
Four episodes. A pilot is ready to change sex, but the doctor made an error. A woman is searching a partner for a dance contest. A worker seduce his boss wife. A guard is too much proactive and this will cause many troubles.
What could I say about this Italian flick starring Michel Constantin? Nothing much, I am afraid. The tale of two truck drivers who have to fight against the local mafia. Not really a road movie, but a talkative film, in the pure Italian fashion, with a few action sequences. But, beware, nothing to do with other brutal Italian movies as we could see in the seventies. Flat, boring, a sort of GAS-OIL rip off, made twenty years earlier by Gilles Grangier and starring Jean Gabin. Nearly the same scheme. I am not surprised there is only one review for this movie. Not a crap, after all Sergio Corbucci was not a crap maker. Only one thing, it's important you like Italian cinema, with everything that means, in terms of filming, sound, score, acting. Otherwise, get away from it. There could have been a fantastic climax with the truck sequence, near the cliff, but unfortunately it failed. And also an unexpected, unusual and unsatisfactory ending, which many will disapprove. I like it.
A good time waster anyway.
