Absolutely loved this film. Never had seen it before prior to watching the TT Blu-ray.

As always, the TT presentation was quite pleasing.

And you are correct, it may not be one of the greatest westerns made, but certainly highly entertaining and worthy of a blind purchase.

Thanks for the review, Richard.

Thanks from me too.
I'm not sure I even know this western. Maybe I watched it some thirty+ years ago on TV.


btw, quote:
"he informs Norris (Jack Lemmon)"

It should be Harris. ;)

"Anna Kashfi, who is not required to do much other than look pretty, is probably best-known for being the first wife of Marlon Brando"

That's probably correct, but I've always been much taken with her performance in Battle Hymn, where she comes in late in the film and makes a strong impression as a gracious and humane woman.

Thanks for catching that. I must have been subconsciously think about the writer Frank Norris! The edits have been made.
