Movie Summary

Sergio Corbucci
Navajo Joe is a 1966 American spaghetti western directed by Sergio Corbucci and starring Burt Reynolds, Aldo Sambrell, Nicoletta Machiavelli, Tanya Lopert, and Fernando Rey. Navajo Joe (Reynolds) takes the law into his own hands when his village was massacred by Duncan and his men. Joe befriends two prostitutes that were almost killed by Duncan for overhearing his plot to steal money from a train. Joe then asks the townspeople of Esperanza to pay him to protect their village. While at first they are hesitant, the town doctor eventually convinces them otherwise. Joe is captured by Duncan's men and tortured, but is rescued by an old man from the saloon. Joe then vows his final revenge and steals the train back from Duncan. A showdown in an Indian cemetery brings the confrontation between Joe and Duncan to a head, and only one will survive. Navajo Joe features music by the famed film composer Ennio Morricone.
