Burt Reynolds only agreed to make this film because he was under the impression that Sergio Leone would be directing. When he found out it was Sergio Corbucci he tried to pull out, but the contracts had already been signed and it was too late.
Apparently, during the production of this movie, director Sergio Corbucci drove Burt Reynolds deep into Spain's Almerian Desert and then drove off leaving him there to walk back to town.
Burt Reynolds once described this movie as being "so awful, it was shown only in prisons and airplanes because nobody could leave. I killed 10,000 guys, wore a Japanese slingshot and a fright wig."
Burt Reynolds wore a black hairpiece for this film.
When director Sergio Corbucci was approached to make this movie, Marlon Brando was touted as the star. By the time production started the lead had been given to Burt Reynolds. Reynolds and Corbucci did not get along at all.
The horse belonging to Navajo Joe was made to look like a pinto. It was actually a dapple gray, but was partially painted to resemble a pinto..
Burt Reynolds has joked about his dislike of this movie by referring to the film's director Sergio Corbucci as being the "wrong Sergio". Sergio Leone is the most internationally famous director of many of the successful spaghetti westerns including the Dollars Trilogy. Moreover, there was also another Sergio who directed spaghetti westerns, Sergio Sollima.
A former stuntman, Burt Reynolds supervised the stunts on this picture.
Producer Dino De Laurentiis made this spaghetti western with the intention of replicating the success of A Fistful of Dollars (1964) after that movie had become a box-office hit.Read more ›
They say Italians have been making the worst movies for a hundred years, but "Navajo Joe" is pretty good for a spaghetti oater. In an interview Reynolds admitted that he took Clint Eastwood's example (whom he replaced on the TV series "Rawhide") by going to Europe and starring in an Italian Western; unlike Eastwood who got Sergio Leone, however, Burt got Sergio Corbucci.Despite this, Reynolds was in his prime and looks robust; being a stuntman, he did all his own stunts, which is impressive when you view the movie.
Other highlights include the typically outlandish but memorable score by Ennio Morricone (pseudonymously credited as Leo Nichols), which is reminiscent of his later score for "Burn!" and raven-haired Nicoletta Machiavelli as Estella, a half-breed who takes a liking to Joe. Other than this, the typical revenge plot moves right along for a fairly entertaining 60's European Western where the dubbed voices don't match the lips. "Navajo Joe" may not be great, but it's amusing enough.
The film runs 93 minutes and was shot in Spain.
