The Little P. Ranch was built specifically for this film, but it remained standing after filming was completed and would go on to appear in the following movies: '¡Viva la muerte... tua! (1971)', 'La banda J. & S. - Cronaca criminale del Far West (1972)', 'Il mio nome è Shangai Joe (1973)', 'Uno, dos, tres... dispara otra vez (1973)', 'The Spikes Gang (1974)' and 'Il bianco il giallo il nero (1975)'.

Western Babe-Fest with BB and CC!
13 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Unusual comic Western romp starring two foreign beauties of the 50's and 60's, Bardot and Cardinale. This certainly isn't a work of art but fun all the same. With Michael J. Pollard (from Bonnie and Clyde) as the sheriff, how wrong can you go? Warring families fighting over land (with catfights).

Wonderful music and an easygoing flowing rhythm, this film should become a camp classic. A 6 out of 10. Best performance = Michael J. Pollard. Good luck finding this one. Bardot's best 70's film (which really isn't saying much), but I had a blast when I saw this as a teenager back in the early 70's. Give it a shot!
