Storyline

Blindman is a blind gunfighter who rides a seeing-eye horse, Boss. He is contracted to provide safe transport for fifty European mail-order brides - who have asked miners in Lost Creek, Texas, for their hands in marriage - for $50,000, but his business partner, Skunk, betrays him by allowing Domingo, a Mexican bandit, to kidnap the women for his own purposes. Blindman heads into Mexico in pursuit, where he discovers that Domingo and his sister, Sweet Mama, are using the women as a lure for an Army General, who they intend to hold for ransom. With the aid of Pilar (the unwitting object of Domingo's brother Candy's affections), "El General", Boss and many, many sticks of dynamite, our anti-hero stops at nothing to get even with Domingo and his siblings, and deliver on his contract.

Trivia

The international trailers feature the 1967 Bob Seger single "Heavy Music"; the song also appeared in the American trailer for A Stranger in Town (1967) and the trailers for Get Mean (1975). Allen Klein likely fostered this creative choice after he acquired the single's label, Cameo-Parkway Records. See more »

Goofs

When the General rides away with the women, a dead Domingo henchman raises his head from the ground twice. See more »

Quotes

Candy: [to Pilar's father] Who killed my men? Who killed them?
[Blindman takes his gun away]
Blindman: I don't know. I didn't see a thing.

Crazy Credits

The Italian version ends when Blindman, riding towards the screen, is on the left side of the screen, and a minute-long credits roll (consisting of the actresses playing the brides, four supporting actors, most of the technical crew and the miscellaneous companies) plays over a reprise of The General's theme. The English version ends with an earlier shot of Blindman to the right of the screen, and simply displays text reading "The End" without segueing into any new music or credits. See more »

a fantastic spaghetti western
15 October 2005 | by spider89119See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that is just plain great. I would recommend this movie to anyone, not just spaghetti western fans.

Tony Anthony is great in this movie. This is the second Anthony spaghetti western that I have seen, and the other one (A Dollar Between the Teeth) is incredible also. After seeing this film, I am convinced that Tony Anthony deserves more recognition as a spaghetti western star than he has gotten. He belongs right up there with Nero, Gemma, Eastwood, and Milian (no one comes close to Lee Van Cleef). His character in this film is one tough hombre. He really takes a beating, but always returns to create Hell on Earth for his enemies. He has a lot of great lines in this movie too.

The movie really stretches ones suspension of disbelief when the blind man is able to ride a horse to Mexico, and when he exhibits his uncanny ability to aim a gun, but this is such a high-quality film that it manages to pull it off with ease.

The music score is excellent -a great classic spaghetti western sound with a little bit of sitar thrown in.

Besides being a spaghetti western, this film also borrows some elements from exploitation movies, (lots of scantily clad and naked women, women behind bars, etc.) but manages to do it without sacrificing the quality of the movie. Fans of both genres should be especially pleased with this film.

This is a must-see for spaghetti western fans, and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys movies that are somewhat off-beat, and very well made.
