DINGETJIE IS DYNAMITE! 1975 South African Movie Region 2

$10.00

FILM TITLE: Dingetjie Is Dynamite! (also known as “My Naam Is Nog Steeds Dingetjie”) (1975)
Director: Ivan Hall
Writer: C.F. Beyers-Boshoff
Stars: Wena Naudé, Don Leonard, Roelf Laubscher 
 
Contents: This amusing “Boerewors-western” will remind viewers of the Terence Hill and Bud Spencer spaghetti westerns, which writer CF Beyers-Boshoff alludes to in this movie’s credits (which are a comic treat and not to be missed). It’s 1930 and a gang has been terrorising the locals for what seems like forever. But all this is about to come to an end with the arrival of Dingetjie and Daan, two mismatched brothers who aren’t all that bright, but can shoot and fight. They get a job looking after cattle for a local matriarch, but the gang gets Daan framed for bank robbery so they can steal the cattle. Dingetjie blows up the jail to spring Daan from captivity, and the local sheriff sets off after them, with a big shoot-out ensuing in the town square. Apart from its outrageous humour, savour Hal Orlandini’s stand-out performance as the curiously fastidious villain.
