Trivia

Filmed at Spahn's Movie Ranch near Chatsworth, CA, in late 1968. The ranch was used for occasional filming of TV westerns like Bonanza (1959) and The Lone Ranger (1949), as well as for David O. Selznick's western Duel in the Sun (1946). However, with the decline of westerns in general, owner George Spahn decided to allow a group of misfit hippies to reside there temporarily in the spring of 1968 in exchange for minor upkeep of the ranch. This was shortly before filming of this movie took place. The group called themselves "The Family" and were led by Charles Manson and two of their members, Catherine Share and Bobby Beausoleil - who was later convicted of murdering a music teacher who sold mescaline to them - appear in this film.

Unsophisticated, Fairly Silly, Straight-Faced Nudie Western
25 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

A cowboy sympathetic to the plight of a nearby Indian tribe is wrongly accused in the rape and murder of the chief's daughter, leading to much hate and violence.

This crackpot nudie feature is fun to look at, though thoroughly impossible to defend on any artistic level. The terrible costumes and the fact that all the Indians are obviously white, makes this look more like a live action cartoon than the serious production that it's press materials pretends it to be.

In short, the plentiful nudity (the real reason for watching this) is good. Everything else is not. There's definitely better examples of both genres.

More interesting is that The Ramrodder was filmed at the infamous Spahn Movie Ranch and features not one, but two members of the Manson family, Catherine Share and Bobby Beausoleil, who was probably already in the can for murder at the time this hit the soda-stained screens of the Pussycat Theater!
