Trivia

According to a letter in John Wayne's files, Sammy Davis Jr. hoped this would be the film that he and Wayne had wanted for years to do together. A conflict in their commitment schedules prevented Wayne from making the film, which was originally intended for theatrical release, with Burt Kennedy directing. See more »

Can you imagine . . .
12 May 2016 | by (Fly-Over Country) – See all my reviews

the original plan for this movie coming to fruition? John Wayne and Sammy Davis, Jr., directed by Burt Kennedy? It fairly screams "hit!"

Alas, we get an Aaron Spelling production with Ernest Borgnine sleep-walking through his performance (and what was with that silly way he kept firing his pistol?) and Sammy Davis, Jr., restraining his entertainer voice while looking embarrassed.

Or was that me being embarrassed for them.

The Trackers is so cheap and disposable as a standard search plot that the tension, created when white rancher Borgnine has to accept black cop Davis for his sidekick, is the only thing worth the 75 minutes of air time.

Throw in a weird pack of evil-doers in Mexico who are holding Ernie's daughter (a non-actress named Connie Kreski who was a Playboy Playmate in 1969; yes, dammit, I looked her up, and I read the article!), led by an urbane Englishman, and I simply gave up.

William Katt gets wasted in the first five minutes of the flick. Julie Adams gets wasted--in a different way--with a thankless role of Borgnine's missus. What's weird is that she's the only believable character in this silly blob of cinematic dryer lint.

Oh, well. It was free.
