Though this movie has often been called a "spaghetti western", it actually isn't. That term is applied to westerns that were filmed by European companies (usually Italian), with a European (usually Italian) cast and crew and shot in Spain, because its terrain closely resembles the northeast Mexico/southwest US area. Although this film was shot in Spain, it was filmed by an American studio (20th Century-Fox) with an American director, producer, writers and mostly American crew. Star Burt Reynolds' previous film, Navajo Joe (1966), would be properly regarded as a "spaghetti western", but not this one. See more »

I just rewatched "100 Rifles" and it is still a joy to watch, good actors and effective action makes this very spaghetti-like US western simmer, as well as a very sexy Raquel Welsh. Made 2 years before Leone made his "Duck You Sucker" and has a surprisingly lot of elements in common with it. A healthy dose of humor is also infused into this film. 7/10
