Blindman is a 1971 Italian spaghetti western film directed by Ferdinando Baldi.

The film achieved over the years a cult status, mainly for the participation of ex-Beatle Ringo Starr in a role of weight.[1]


A blind, but deadly, gunman, is hired to escort fifty mail order brides to their miner husbands. When he is double crossed by his friends and a Mexican bandit, he heads for Mexico to settle scores and save the women. Based, in part, on the true 1860s-era story of Texas blindman Luis Alcante.
