Navajo Joe to screen at L.A. Film Fest

Written by Joe D on June 7th, 2011

My good pal Daniele Luppi was asked by the L.A. Film Festival to program a Spaghetti Western with a score he admired and he picked a classic, Sergio Corbucci’s epic Navajo Joe or as it was also called A Dollar A Head.  See a young handsome Burt Reynolds give an incredible physical performance as an angry Indian out for revenge. Burt was a stunt man before he became a huge star and he executes some incredible feats in this film. Sergio Corbucci , one of the top directors of Italian Westerns , 2nd only to the greatest Sergio, Sergio Leone, delivers a violent, action packed film, a worthy companion to his masterpiece, The Grand Silence. And Ennio Morricone’s iconic score will blow you away.The vocal stylings of Alessandro Alessandroni’s choral group I Cantori Moderni, are used to amazing effect. Go See It! Downtown Friday Night June 24th, 10:15 pm  at the Downtown Independent Theater. Here’s the info.

    I so wish I lived stateside. I love this film and would love to see it on the big screen.
