Agreeable though middling western about a heist in a mint
20 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

Sam Whiskey(Burt Reynolds) is an rogue adventurer, then he's hired by a gorgeous widow(Angie Dickinson).He must retrieve a treasure recently stolen by her deceased husband from a sunken ship. Sam teams up an African-American blacksmith(Ossie Davis) and a tall inventor(Clint Walker) who designs a diving helmet. But they are followed by a fat man and hoodlums(Anthony James). Later they ought manage to get hundred pounds of gold bars and put it into a mint house ruled by a stiff superintendent(William Schallert)with anyone aware.

This entertaining movie displays action western, fist-play,bemusing caper, shootouts and lively humor. Friendly performance by Burt Reynolds and enticing Angie Dickinson who does a brief nudist exhibition.Good secondary cast, as the veteran William Schallert as mint superintendent, Chubby Johnson habitual support cast in numerous Western and Anthony James , usual baddie of the 70s. Atmospheric musical score and colorful cinematography, however the film is made in television style. Director Arnold Laven created his proper production company along with Arthur Gardner and Jules V Levy in the 50s, at the decade since, they had produced dozens of additional TV Western including ¨Rifleman, Big Valley, Law of the Plainsmen, Zane Grey theater and Gunsmoke¨ and Laven directed several Western movies such as ¨Geronimo, Rought night in Jericho,The glory guys and Sam Whiskey¨ among others. Rating : Average but amusing.
