Little Rita is out to rid the west of evil bandits. She is helped by her friend, an Indian chief, who agrees with her that gold is the source of all human evil...
Being another SW oddity, Little Rita is a SW musical with clumsily choreographed dancing scenes, which were intended to be a showcase for Italian pop star Rita Pavone. The film only works in the scenes which are parodying typical SW motives by mocking the famous heroes like Django or Ringo.
