Rik vanNutter, fondly remembered by James Bond fans as "Felix Leiter" in Thunderball (and also well known internationally as the former husband of Anita Ekberg) stars in the Spanish-Italian Dynamite Joe. The film is set in the years following the Civil war. vanNutter plays a government agent, assigned to protect a gold shipment. The bandits whom he confronts along the way are not prepared for vanNutter's "secret weapon": that newfangled invention called dynamite. Halina Zalewska and Merce Castro costar in this lively spaghetti western.
