Crossover Movie Poster: Little Rita of the West


In this musical comedy spaghetti western, gunslinger Little Rita, with the help of a tribe of Indians, attempts to rid the world of gold, which she and they view as the root of all evil. She battles Ringo and Django, killing them and taking their gold, then blowing it up along with all the other gold she’s gathered. Ringo (played by Kirk Morris) dresses, looks, and acts nothing like the different versions of Ringo played by Giuliano Gemma in A Pistol for Ringo and The Return of Ringo, but Django (played by Enzo Di Natale) dresses like Franco Nero’s version of the character, carries a coffin with a machine gun inside it, and has gold he stole from Mexicans who crushed his hands, an event that occurred in Sergio Corbucci’s original film. The portrayal of Ringo and Django as villains, and their deaths, make this an AU.

This crossover is one of hundreds covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, which will be published by Meteor House! As with the first two volumes, this one is an AUTHORIZED companion to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!

  1. I'm not sure Django was a good guy in the original film. Still, it does sound like an AU.
