US/Spanish co-production with adventures , noisy scenes , spectacular fights and being filmed in Almeria
20 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

Simple and plain Chorizo Western with breathtaking outdoors filmed in Almeria , Spain . This is an amusing Gazpacho Matinée Western plenty adventure , gold-lust clichés , and action-packed especially in its final part ; ending in an abrupt, ironic denouement . Paella Western with a fiery female lead , Laurene Landon , taking on multiple adventures and fierce battles . Gorgeous blonde mestizo Yellow Hair (Laurene Landon of All the marbles , Hundra, Maniac cop) and her sympathetic ,courageous sidekick Pecos Kid (Ken Robertson , also producer) are after a lot of gold in Aztec temple . This delightful action/adventure romp deals with a half-breed called Yellow Hair , a valiant warrior who was adopted in a tribe of fierce Comanches , but her origin is unknown . The brave duo have run-ins with an army of Mexican soldiers commanded by an effeminate general (Luis Lorenzo) , a gang of dastardly outlaws led by Flores (Aldo Sambrell), a mean saloon owner named Tortuga (easygoing Ramiro Oliveros) and a deadly tribe of Aztec warriors led by a fearsome Aztec chieftain named Shayowteewah (John Ghaffari) while searching the countryside for said gold treasure . Thrilling and stirring movie full of imagination and fantasy that introduces us a brave heroine , female counterpart to Jeronimo . Yellow Hair is superior to any male, woman of beauty ,a warrior of strength ,a hunter of man . Yellow Hair finds her mother (Claudia Gravy) slain and takes a vow of lethal vendetta until one day she meets her match .

This exciting film packs noisy action , adventure and rip-roaring fights . Dumb images , unintentionally hilarious and lots of amusement and entertainment . Made on a fairly middling scale with passable set design , glimmer photography and acceptable musical score . The film is a crossover from ¨Spaghetti Western genre¨ , ¨Raiders of the lost ark¨ (Spielberg) , ¨Against a crooked spy¨ (Earl Bellamy) and ¨MacKenna's gold¨ (J.L.Thompson) with fantastic inspiration in the rare Indians and the spectacular outdoors . This entertaining picture contains frenetic action , struggles and moving action scenes , including blood and beheading . The film is full of freaks and bemusing situations ; it is quite entertaining because being a laborious and intriguing adventure tale with some unintentional humor . The picture was made at the same time to ¨Hundra¨ sharing similar technician and artistic team . Sympathetic performance by Laurene Landon as Yellow Hair , a valiant woman who has been raised to despise the influence of men , she the finest warrior of her people . Agreeable support cast full of Spanish actors such as Ramiro Oliveros, Luis Lorenzo and Spaghetti usual as Eduardo Fajardo , Daniel Martin and Frank Braña . Colorful and evocative cinematography by John Cabrera as the film gets sensational landscapes wonderfully shot . Very derivative special effects , acceptable production design and matte paintings . The picture was shot in Texas Hollywood-Fort Bravo , Almeria, Spain and ¨Condor¨ fortress , where was filmed several Spaghetti as ¨ Blind man, Massacre at Fort Holman¨, ¨A man called Noon¨ , ¨El Condor¨ and ¨Conan the Barbarian¨ .

The motion picture was middlingly directed by Matt Cimber . He has directed all kind of genres , in the mid 70s did three immensely enjoyable blaxploitation pictures : The Black Six (1973), Lady Cocoa (1975) and the terrifically trashy The Candy Tangerine Man (1975) . Matt made a rare foray into the horror genre with the disturbing psychological shocker The Witch Who Came from the Sea (1976). His next work was based on a Mario Puzo story, a World War II drama A Time to die(1982) starring Rex Harrison and Rod Taylor. Later that year Matt teamed up with Pia Zadora for two films: the underrated Butterfly (1982 ) ,Orson Welles last film, and the fun Fake-out (1982). The following year Matt joined forces with actress Laurene Landon for Hundra (1983) and Yellow Hair & the Pecos Kid (1984) . The film will appeal to adventure buffs with enough action to make it worth looking in on . In other words, it seem likely Spaghetti Western enthusiasts and juvenile viewers will be delighted because thrills , action and adventures are regularly presented and edited to offer the enough impact. Rating : 6 ; it's an old-fashioned B film on an acceptable scale and basically enjoyable because of it.
