Trivia

In an obvious attempt to exploit the later success of Trinita played by Terence Hill, this film was re released in France with all the music sequences edited out and the character of Black Star renamed Trinita. A certain amount of jocks and puns was also added in the French translation of the dialogue, supposedly to reinforce the comical dimension of the film. See more »

Is Rita a woman or not ?
8 November 2003 | by marc242See all my reviews

Weird Mixture of Western-Parody and Musical. Rita Pavone looks strangely androgynous in this movie, I can't say if she's really a woman or not. O_O

the musical scenes are typical 60s style,and a bit annoying. The overall atmosphere is light-hearted, although the jokes are VERY dated.

I only know the german-dubbed version, so I'm sure the italian dialogue had to be extensively rewritten to make sense in german. This is generally a enjoyable,but still very strange western-parody with outlandish musical songs and equally weird dancing sequences.

Good for your weekend thrash video night. :-)
