[quote=“Dillinger, post:18, topic:1373”]Can someone help me with the end of Black Jack? My DVD-version (attraction movies) is strangely cut, so the end is quite confusing. I’ll describe, how the end looks like on my DVD:
Jack is threatening Skinner and he wants his brother in law to rape Skinner’s daughter. Then Peter seems to have killed Skinner without raping the daughter, so Jack is not amused at all. Now all of a sudden Jack is dead and Peter drags the daughter out of the collapsing house. Outside it’s alternately raining and snowing, which might be caused by the flashbacks that are cut in from time to time.
That’s really confusing me…
So could someone explain the end to me?[/quote]
I forgot to check on this yesterday.
Here’s what happens:
Skinner has been knocked unconscious in a fight with Peter. Jack drags in Skinner’s daughter. Peter is bloody and beaten from his fight with Skinner. Jack tells Peter that the daughter is “his” and wants him to rape her. Skinner comes-to and begs them to kill him instead of hurting his daughter. Jack angrily tells Peter to avenge himself on the daughter. Jack has the daughter in a submissive position and is gripping her by her hair. Peter is caught between the taunting Jack and the begging Skinner. As Jack taunts Peter he tightly grips her scalp. This forces Peter to “flash back” to the scalping and murder of his wife (Jack’s sister) and, in a deranged state, he grabs a knife and stabs Jack in the stomach thinking he is the Indian who killed his wife. He immediately realizes what he has done as Jack staggers away with the Knife still in his gut. Skinner (being typical Spaghetti villain) finds this amusing and laughs at Jack’s bad fortune. Before he collapses and dies Jack shoots Skinner several times, killing him. Peter grasps the daughter and rushes her out of the saloon as a storm rages and the buildings are seemingly being blown apart by wind and driving rain.
It is a little odd because the “flashback” that Peter has that reminds him of his wife’s murder (and compels him to kill Jack) does not appear as a scene in the film (at least the DVDr version I have). The rape of Peter’s wife and her scalping by Mimmo Palmara take place off-camera.
Western All’Italiana says the the storm the happens at the end of the film was real and that Baldanello took advantage of its fortuitous arrival to make the ending dramatic.
Hope that helps
