Blindman (Tony Anthony) 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 (Renato Romano), betrays him by allowing Domingo (Lloyd Battista), 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 (Magda Konopka), are using the women as a lure for an Army General (Raf Baldassarre) who they intend to hold for ransom alongside the brides. With the aid of Pilar (Agneta Eckemyr) (the unwitting object of Domingo's brother Candy's (Sir Ringo Starr) 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.Written by
Sir Ringo Starr wrote and recorded a title song for this movie, but it wasn't used in the movie. It was released as the B-side of his hit, "Back Off Boogaloo". See more »

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 »
Blindman:A classic action Spaghetti Western movie of style and taste.
"Blindman"starring Tony Anthony and Ringo Starr is what I consider a special Spaghetti Western movie.Just when you thought you've seen them all,here is one with a twist,and quite entertaining as well!The movie takes you on this journey that enthralls you directly to the plot as it starts.A long-coated blind man is riding a seeing-eye horse out of the desolate Texas plains toward you.He's angry,ruthless and deadly.He's desperately after something.That something happens to be fifty beautiful mail-order brides that he was contracted to deliver to Texas.The women were purchased by miners,yet they ended up in Mexico.They were stolen by a partner Blindman trusted,who in turn sold them to an unsavory gang of bandits,all of whom has their own dishonorable agenda for the women.Now Blindman wants his fifty women,vengeance and paycheck!He deals out his own brand of justice,using his fine-tuned gift for sound and feel/depth-memory to unleash the bullets and the dynamite.The movie is action packed,exciting,violent,interesting and fun!There's carnage,nudity,and mass assault scenes that give this movie a bold and raw,yet fascinating cinematic appeal.It's a definite must-see for all Spaghetti Genre Western fans.Although some may find the plot absurd,the movie successfully takes on a life of its own.It's truly a movie to be enjoyed for what it is--entertainment.Tony Anthony(portraying Blindman)is convincing,with some of the best and funniest script lines of any Western movie I've seen.Ringo Starr(Candy)is well acted,blending in so tastefully as the quintessential bad guy.A good supporting cast fuels the engine for the movie,while the soundtrack-dynamics are true to form.What I find intriguing about this movie is that it speaks volumes about the will and perseverance of the human spirit."Blindman" is what I consider a truly collectible Western Film!
