Ravaging the land like a pitiless scourge, Vee Duncan's savage gang of cutthroats massacre the entire tribe of a peaceful Navajo village, scalping them all for a dollar apiece. With his companion brutally murdered, the Navajo native and the slaughter's sole survivor, Joe, stealthily pursues the blood-thirsty outlaws on their way to the small town of Esperanza, where a treacherous member of the community encourages Duncan to hijack a government train crammed with cash. Their well-thought strategy guarantees success; however, Navajo Joe still thirsts for retribution. Can a single man foil the plans of Duncan's ferocious crowd of killers?
Navajo revenge slashes... burns... ravages the screen!

Did You Know?
The first day of shooting, Burt Reynolds
reached the location in the Spanish desert in Almeria, dressed as a Native American and wore a red-haired wig. It was raining, so Sergio Corbucci
suggested that Reynolds go for a walk around that beautiful scenery. During the walk, Reynolds met a Spanish young boy who asked if he was a Native American. He walked with the boy until a small Spanish town and he was invited for a drink by the boy's family in their house. When Reynolds returned to the set, the film crew was gone, they had left him in the desert, so he had to spend the night with the family in the house where he has been before. Next morning, Reynolds was a bit angry with the crew, that seemed very funny to Corbucci. See more

Nobody ever had mercy on me. When I was a boy they beat me. Even called me bastard. I didn't cry and I couldn't fight back. So thaY began my reveange to get back at them. Brought out my hatred for the indians, like my mother. And I kill white people like my father. My father... A preacher like you, a minister. Breed by mercy. But I got a bad breake when somebody killed him and beat me to the punch.
