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.Written by
According to Tony Anthony, his friend Frank Wolff lobbied hard for the role of Candy, as he had played the lead villain of Anthony's first Western, A Stranger in Town (1967), and dubbed Dan Vadis in The Stranger Returns (1967), as a favor. Allen Klein, however, insisted on Ringo Starr, who was looking to diversify his career in the wake of The Beatles's break-up. Wolff subsequently fell out with Anthony, and committed suicide shortly after the film's release, purportedly because he believed he was no longer being cast in roles he wanted to appear in.

Domingo's chief henchman is given the nickname "Dude". Prior to the 1960s, "dude" was a synonym for "dandy", which refers to a well-dressed urban male, a description that does not suit the character in this film. 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 »
This Spaghetti Western can be easily ranked as one of the top 20 of all time. T. Anthony was phenomenal for getting bad reviews and especially slandered for his acting he pulled off the blind role amazingly. I definitely agree, he is among the better actors such as Nero, Van Cleef, Kinski, and Milian. He is a better actor than Gemma and that is for sure. Blindman is a person who will not quit and is determined not to allow his handicap to get in the way with his business and that is to deliver 50 women to the miners. The movie was actioned packed throughout and kept the audience at full attention. I was honestly thinking to myself how is this plot going to be believable but it is very fun to watch and entertaining throughout. The movie added some very funny comedy to it which spiced it up a bit. I highly recommend this movie to die-hard spaghetti western fans.
