I think Lancaster was at his best and Lee Remick simply did not know how to give an inadequate performance. Some reviewers here whine and chime about the lack of perfection, but who knows (or cares, for that matter) what they have in their mind. This is a funny movie. I remember seeing it in the theater and laughing all the way through it. No, it's not a serious film at all but dang it, just seeing Donald Pleasance give out those wild-eyed glossalalia-like cries after a taste of the demon likker, was worth the price of a ticket. I loved this film and enjoyed Lee Remick in everything I ever saw her in. Martin Landau, an underappreciated actor who later came to fame in the TV series, MI (long before those corny psuedotechno-thriller movies with Tom Cruise)and for his great Role as Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood, is great as the blue-eyed Native American. I especially liked old Brian Keith as the entrepreneur declaring himself to be a "Republican," and Robert Wilke, another great character actor as Chief Five Barrels. While this film may please all (I've yet to see or read about one that has), I found it a delightful romp.
