Blindman (Tony Anthony - motto: "Having no eyes makes you half a man. Having no eyes & no money ... now that's a bitch.") is on the quest for 50 prostitutes he promised to 50 miners as mail order brides but who he was cheated out of by his business associate. Said business associate has sold the girls to Mexican bandit Domingo (Lloyd Battista), as he confesses before dying from a dynamite overdose, & Domingo, who has a whole gang of cutthroats to guard his women, proves to be a tough nut to crack. He for example sells the women to a troop of soldiers but after having received their money, kills them all except for their general (Raf Baldassare), who he keeps for ransom, & at his first meeting with Blindman, he beats & humiliates him before throwing him out. But he also has a weak spot, his brother Candy (Ringo Starr), who is in love with a gringa, Pilar (Agneta Eckemyr), who rejects him of course. Blindman soon uses that to his advantage, using Pilar as bait to capture Candy & then exchanging him for the 50 women ... but unfortunately the 50 women he gets from Domingo are not his 50 prostitutes but 50 girls in cahoots with the gangsters, soon leading to his capture & torture by Domingo. But of course, our Blindman soon frees himself & can even help the general to escape too, & he still has a trick or 2 up his sleeve: He uses Pilar as bait again to lure Candy into an abandoned mine & then blow him up, before the very eyes of Domingo & his men, who followed Candy - meanwhile giving Blindman enough time to free his girls, who are soon rounded up by Domingo's men like cattle, though, & some of them raped & killed. But Blindman has obviously foreseen this, meanwhile blowing up parts of Domingo's headquarters & binding his sister (Magda Konopka) to a post in the nude. That same night, he has Candy's funeral rites interrupted by a series of explosions & lures away all the men from their headquarters again - only Domingo's sister has brains enough to stay behind & actually attack Blindman, who manages to kill her, instead. In the final confrontation, Blindman seems to be hopelessly outnumbered by Domingo & his men ... until the general & his soldiers show up, giving our hero the needed support & killing all of Domingo's men. & the general is even burning out Domingo's eyes to make the fight between him & Blindman fair & square, & Blindman of course wins. Upon leaving the scene, the general takes with him Blindman's 50 women though ...

 

Beautifully photographed story that also has a story that is more original than your usual Italo-Western - & that's not just because the hero happens to be blind - that has a refreshingly immoral premise (all of the characters fight over 50 [!] women each of them wants to sell off anyway) for the proceedings, almost immediately abolishing the borders between good & evil. The use of Stelvio Cipriani, as well as the score itself, is pretty adequate, but less innovative, actually more along the lines of a standard Italo-Western ... but a good one at that.
