The White, the Yellow, and the Black (Italian: Il bianco, il giallo, il nero), also known as Samurai and Shoot First... Ask Questions Later, is a 1975 Spaghetti Western comedy film.

It is the last spaghetti western directed by Sergio Corbucci.[1] Differently from his previous western films, this is openly parodic, acting as a spoof of Red Sun. It was generally poorly received by critics.[2] The character of Milian will be reprised by the same actor, with slight changes, in the comedy film Delitto al ristorante cinese.[2]

Plot[edit]

A horse from Japan which was supposed to be a present for the government of the United States has been stolen. A motley crew consisting of Sheriff Gideon ('The Black'), famous outlaw Blanc de Blanc ('The White') and inept servant Sakura ('The Yellow') tries to retrieve the precious animal. During their investigation they are confronted by a violent bunch of former soldiers of the Confederate States of America who now live as desperados.
