Funny you should mention it- danish television 2 airs this in 17 minutes - (Sunday the 28th 2012, 3.35 pm). Gonna watch it, I don't think I've seen it before.
Fine work on Siegel's part, and a pretty good late iteration of the Eastwood '60s Western persona before Eastwood started tinkering with it within the confines of his own directorial career. Still, MacLaine is horribly miscast, and it's hard not to construct a fantasy version of the film as Boetticher intended it alongside the actual in your mind as you watch.
Straight-up craftsmanship, from one of the last pure craftsmen. A deft and effortless blending of comedy, romance and action, as well as a strong undercurrent of revolutionary fervor. Top tier.
Vintage Clint Eastwood badass-ness highlights this entertaining western from director Don Siegel. Eastwood and Shirley MacLaine's snarky banter, along with some well-crafted suspense scenes propels things toward an action-packed finale. Another excellent western score from Ennio Morricone.
