Navajo Joe (1966)

I've been a committed fan of spaghetti westerns ever since attending a 3-D, theatrical showing of late entry Comin' at Ya! (1981) during it's initial run. Among the many genre films I've viewed since then, the Euro-westerns from Sergio Corbucci stand out and Navajo Joe (1966) is no exception.

The film provided Burt Reynolds with an early motion picture role as the title character. He alone survives after his people are massacred by a violent and sadistic group of bandits, lead by Duncan, and he seeks to extract an equally bloody revenge on the killers. There's more to the plot involving a train robbery and treachery among Duncan and his uneasy partner, the duplicitous Dr. Chester Lynne.

Adding to the film's qualities is a typically excellent soundtrack by Ennio Morricone. Also notable is the sultry Nicoletta Machiavelli's first appearance in a spaghetti western.

Both the trailer and feature are included below.
