Blindman (1971)

One of the most stylish and enjoyable Spaghetti Westerns to come out of the early ’70s features blind gunman (Tony Anthony, who also provided the story) escorting a group of fifty mail order brides to Texas, where they are to be married to miners.

The fifty young women are kidnapped by a gang working for Domingo (Lloyd Battista), and his sadistic sister, Sweet Mama (Magda Konopka) but they underestimate Blindman – a man who has to trust his horse and his hearing.

Soon, the villains 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 nothingness and demanding his fifty women back. The soundtrack is unforgettable. The locations are great, with a supporting cast that includes Ringo Starr as Domingo’s younger brother, Candy.
