Navajo Joe

I know it sounds like a long lost cause at this point, but I’ve found myself thinking a few times of late just how much fun Grindhouse was – it’s been a long time were I’ve had that sort of silly fun watching a film. This got me to thinking about Quentin Tarantino’s love of, well let’s just say the low art of cinema.

A few years ago one of the cable channels (maybe it was Ovation or IFC?) gave Tarantino an entire block of time for his own film marathon of sorts. And one of the films he dragged out was none other than Navajo Joe!

Before this I had never heard of the film before, but for some odd reason it’s stuck in my mind when I think of Tarantino. It’s a 1966 Italian/Spanish Spaghetti Western, directed by Sergio Corbucci. But the kicker is that it stars Burt Reynolds, playing a Native American! The film features a very campy soundtrack and goes on forever, and of course the focus is good old fashioned revenge Here’s the trailer:

And here’s a little clip of the action:

…and now you won’t forget the money, the pleasure, the revenge!
