Blindman (also known in Italian as Il pistolero cieco, lit. "The blind gunfighter") is a 1971 Italian spaghetti western film directed by Ferdinando Baldi. The main character is an homage to Kan Shimozawa's Zatoichi character: a blind transient who does odd jobs is in reality a high-skilled warrior.

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

Plot[edit]

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.
