YELLOW HAIR AND THE FORTRESS OF GOLD is a Crown International release, which we all know what that means: acting, production values, dialogue are all questionable. Seriously, this movie looks like one of the bigger budgeted CI flicks but that doesn't mean the movie itself is better than the average CI release. While watching it, the film reminded me more of Spaghetti Westerns than the Indiana Jones type of movies it's being advertised as. The title and the video's cover box are very deceptive. YELLOW HAIR AND THE PECOS KID is a more apt title. Though there are some moments about a lost civilization and treasures, the whole stale flick is nowhere near the type of action seen in RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, even if both movies use old time serials as their source of inspiration.
The film itself was dull and creaky. Lotsa slow motion gun action, typical in Westerns made in the 1960s. Seeing that this movie was made in the 1980s, YELLOW HAIR has a very outdated feel to it. Spaghetti Westerns weren't being made in the 1980s anymore. It's seems the producers of this stillborn action/western weren't aware of this. The acting was mostly bad. The ineffectual heroine, Yellow Hair, is unfortunately nicknamed "Yella" throughout the movie. The whole film is politically incorrect but not in a fun P.I. way. Some of the stunts involving horses were obviously harmful to the animals. All in all, a pretty forgettable and pointless Spaghetti Western film, deceptively advertised as an action movie.
