Well, 100 Rifles is easily the second best Western set during the Mexican Revolution, with an evil general and his German military advisor as villains, and featuring a Gattling gun in the climax, released in 1969.
Well put! It is definitely the 2nd best western of it's type from 1969. However, the score by Jerry Goldsmith is first rate. If in doubt, go to www.filmscoremonthly.com and listen to a free sample of the music. Bill
Jerry Goldsmith later re-used the same catchy score (modified abit) for another violent Fox Western LAST HARD MEN.
I noticed that. I assumed that Fox did this as a way of cutting postproduction costs on a project that didn't have high boxoffice prospects. I wonder if Goldsmith was directly involved in the scoring. I noticed that Warners recycled cues from THE WILD BUNCH for their Richard Harris western THE DEADLY TRACKERS, a film they had probably written off before it was released. I don't remember if that film had a music credit.
No, he wasn't. It was a cut and paste job by the studio. John
