Trivia

First of four collaborations between Tony Anthony and Ferdinando Baldi, followed by Get Mean (1975), Comin' at Ya! (1981), and Treasure of the Four Crowns (1983). The actor and director met when Anthony was visiting his then-girlfriend Luciana Paluzzi during the filming of Baldi's Gunman of Ave Maria (1969). See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Blindman: [after igniting some dynamite fuses and stripping Sweet Mama naked] Well, Sweet Mama... I guess the sun don't shine on the same dog's ass all the time.

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 »

Great Bizarre Spaghetti Western!

"I want my fifty women!" "Blindman", a unique Spaghetti Western full of sarcasm, has one of the genre's most bizarre story lines. Clearly inspired by the Japanese "Zatôichi" films about the eponymous blind Samurai (played by Shintarô Katsu"), "Blindman" is about a blind gunman who escorts a group of fifty women to Texas, where they are to be married to miners. But he is cheated and the fifty young women are kidnapped by a gang working for two Mexican pimps/bandidos and their beautiful but villainous sister. They underestimate Blindman, a man who has to trust on his horse and his hearing, and soon have to find out that their handicapped opponent is a deadlier challenge than they might have expected. Tony Anthony is unforgettable as the blind gunman, staring into nonentity and demanding his fifty women back. The locations are great, the supporting cast includes Ringo Starr, as the younger of the two villainous brothers. Not very well known, but full of dark humor and action, Blindman, a Spaghetti Western with a very good soundtrack, is one of the genre's little treasures. Brutal, witty, bizarre, unique! Great fun film!
