Silenzio's verdict:-

Blindman

Great little spaghetti western starring Tony Anthony and Ringo Starr's nose. Anthony plays a blind gunslinger who delivers poetic one-liners whenever the opportunity comes up. Basically, the Blindman wants to deliver 50 order brides to prospectors, but he gets boned by his partners. He spends the movie trying to track down his fifty women and sell 'em to the miners, for a thousand bucks a pop. I found this plot quite imaginative by Spaghetti Western standards as it did not have anything to do with either A) revenge or B) some guy wandering into a town and making as much money as possible by playing all sides against each other. Also, the music is really great, and quite psychedelic. We get the standard whip-cracks and choirs singing lord knows what, but to add interest there's some great sitar and other "out-there" instruments. The dialogue's great, Tony's one-liners are classic: "Every night i kneel down and pray to the lord. I ask the lord 'Who are my friends?' And every night it's the same thing: he doesn't answer." All around solid.

Arizona Colts review:-

BLINDMAN- 1971-Ferdinando Baldi’s highly entertaining spaghetti western stars Tony Anthony as a blind gunslinger clearly modeled after the mega popular ZATOICHI, THE BLIND SWORDSMAN series from Japan. Here, the Blindman must escort a clutch of mail order brides to their husbands to be only to run into trouble along the way when the brides are abducted by a vicious Mexican bandit. Ringo Starr plays the brother of the bandit leader. An exciting film that is slightly bogged down by a series of back to back dénouements. The comical final moments leave things open for a sequel. Baldi’s later western films feature outlandishly garish characters that would seem at home in the world of MAD MAX or the ROAD WARRIOR. They add a freshness to the by now tired traits of the genre and appear to be inspired by the similarly hippie trappings seen in Sergio Corbucci’s westerns of the time.

Was watching this today and noticed when Domingo goes to the herders cabin to look for Pilar its the same location as the threshing circle in "Duck You Sucker".

Yes, SW fans will find quite a few familiar locations in this movie, including the fortress and the mines from El Condor.

To me, this is one of the best (if not the best) Tony Anthony SWs. I place it at the same (or higher) level as A Stranger in Town, and I find it far less bizarre than Get Mean.

Marisa Solinas had a nice extended scene without knickers.
