The Hellbenders

A film by Sergio Corbucci
Starring Joseph Cotten, Norma Bengell, Al Mulock

In this pitiless vision of the old west, former Confederate Colonel Jonas (Joseph Cotten) travels into hostile Southwestern territory, ostensibly to bury the coffin that holds his dead son. However, the pine box actually contains a huge cache of stolen money, which Jonas plans to use to revive the Confederacy and begin another war between the states. Accompanied by his three sons and a hired “widow,” Jonas proceeds with his traitorous scheme, not anticipating the trouble he’ll face from Mexican banditos, Indians, Union soldiers, and his own greedy offspring.
