WHITE COMANCHE (1968)
Spanish western starring William Shatner as a half-breed Indian and also his identical evil twin(who's evil because he smokes too much of that ole' peyote, and according to this movie peyote makes Indians want to rape and kill whitey). The jazz score for a lot of this movie seems very out of place and I kept waiting for some old west beatniks to show up. Also native Americans are not really shown in a very positive light except it's such a goofy movie I can't imagine anyone ever getting offended by it. Shatner does his usual over-acting, which I can dig, and it works perfectly with the silliness of it all and he gets to fight himself. Probably only of interest to Star Trek-nerds who want to see what Shat did in between Trek seasons or your typical cult movie obsessive-types. For a better Indiansploitation flick check out JOHNNY FIRECLOUD.
