BLINDMAN (1971) Dir. Ferdinando Baldi
Grindhouse meets Spaghetti Western with a touch of Zatoichi in the legendary BLINDMAN. Tony Anthony plays a blind bounty hunter hired to bring 50 mail-order brides to miners in Texas but is betrayed by his partners and must face murderous bandits and the Mexican Army in order to fulfil his contract. Ringo Starr plays Candy, a hairy bandido whose lustful obsession for a gringo’s comely daughter gets in the way of everyone’s plans.
Tim Stevens of Rio Cinema and Ranjit S. Ruprai of SUPAKINO will be chatting on stage about the film beforehand. Get there early for some Ringo Starr extras.
