Overview

While a Mexican revolutionary lies low as a U.S. rodeo clown, the cynical Polish mercenary who tutored the idealistic peasant tells how he and a dedicated female radical fought for the soul of the guerrilla general Paco, as Mexicans threw off repressive government and all-powerful landowners in the 1910s. Tracked by the vengeful Curly, Paco liberates villages, but is tempted by social banditry’s treasures, which Kowalski revels in.

Length 110 minutes

Actors

Lorenzo Robledo | Franco Giacobini | Eduardo Fajardo | Jack Palance | Giovanna Ralli | Tony Musante | Franco Nero

Viewing Notes

Paco & the Polack doing big heists around Mexico for the revolution leaving a trail of bodies behind. Franco Nero is good as the mercenary but Tony Musante and Giovanna Ralli steal this one. Palance back as the villain named Curly with the most hilarious curly wig.
