A wisecracking gunfighter is seemingly hurled through time and space as he escorts a Spanish Princess back to her homeland while contending with barbarians, Moors, evil spirits, a raging bull, and a maniacal Shakespeare-quoting hunchback.
A master gunfighter teams up with a banjo-playing drifter and a Mexican tramp to foil the town leaders of Daugherty, Texas, who want to steal $100,000 from their own bank to buy land that the approaching railroad will cross.
Lee Van Cleef,
A bounty hunter arrives in a mining town and is hired to track down the missing daughter of the town's crippled mayor and learns she has been kidnapped by the mayor's corrupt right-hand-man and a band of outlaws he is secretly working for.
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 fifty thousand dollars, but his business partner, Skunk, 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, who they intend to hold for ransom. With the aid of Pilar (Agneta Eckemyr) (the unwitting object of Domingo's brother Candy's (Sir Ringo Starr's) affections), "El General" (Raf Baldassarre), Boss, and 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 »

You're like a piece of wood, you know? Someday, I'm going to build a fire under you... just to get a little bit of warmth. You're my woman... you understand?
I will never be your woman!

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.
