Review: Navajo Joe (1966)

Burt Reynolds as a native indian is as credible as casting Franco Nero for the role of Idi Amin. But when you love B-movies, this is all minor details…

A gang of violent scalphunters don’t get paid for they’re scalps anymore, butchering peaceful indian tribes. Another offer is laid on the table. A train with a safe full of cash is heading for a nearby village. The plan is to rob the train, but there is a one-man army waiting for Duncan and his gang. Navajo Joe.

The film kicks off with yet another haunting score by Enio Morricone. Sergio Corbucci (Django, The Great Silence, CompaƱeros) has again made one of the better spaghetti-western there is. Great entertainment that has all the ingredients of a good spaghetti-meal; Brutality, greed, evil villains, hookers and a high body-count. Would rather see Charles Bronson as the leading man though…
