Former Army meets Bridget Bardot..., 12 September 2007
Author: Stormy_Autumn from the Pacific Northwest

I was able to watch Sean Connery & Bridget Bardot in a movie from a Louis Lamour western novel "Shalako" (1968).

Shalako Carlin (Connery), meets Countess Irina Lazaar (Bardot) as he is rescuing her from an Indian attack. She is part of a European hunting part that has strayed on to the Apache reservation. As they try to return to her hunting party, they are stopped by Apache's with death in their eyes. In order to save the group Shakalo promises Chief Chato (Woody Strode) they'll be off the reservation by morning. The Countess also gives her word.

When they arrive at the camp Baron Frederick Von Hallstatt (Peter Van Eyck) hears their story & gets a good laugh (as does the rest of the party). Why should they do what a bunch of savages want them to do? Bosky Fulton (Stephen Boyd), their head scout, refuses to turn the party around. The rest are in agreement. Of course the Apaches won't be. Shakalo sets up a safe area for them to hide & goes for help.

Morning comes & charming-as-a-rattlesnake Fulton & his men take off with the water, supplies, most of the guns & ammo, plus money & jewelry. He also takes off with one of the 'ladies'. On their way out the scoundrels run off the horses. (One would think the outlaws wanted to prove dead men...& women...tell no tales.)

Shakalo is forced to return to find this group of mostly arrogant fools in quite the predicament. How are they going to get out? Will this diverse group be able to co-operate & combine their knowledge & talents to escape their enemies? That's a really good question!

The rest of the cast includes:

Jack Hawkins as Sir Charles Daggett, Honor Blackman as Lady Julia Daggett, Alexander Knox as Sen. Henry Clarke, Valerie French as Elena Clarke.

It's not a class 'A' western but it's not terrible. The song over the opening & ending credits is just plain awful but the scenery is beautiful. I'd give it *** out of 5 for the scenery alone.
