Did You Know?


Christopher Lee makes a cameo in the film as the gunsmith who Price (a bounty hunter) and Hannie hire to make a revolver for her. In Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) Lee's character Count Dooku hires bounty hunter Jango Fett (Temuera Morrison) to kill Sen. Padme Amidala (Natalie Portman). George Lucas was influenced by the western genre and had named Jango Fett after the title antagonist of Django (1966), and Natalie Portman later starred in the western Jane Got a Gun (2016), which is a loose remake of this film.

Rape victim confronts an unholy trinity
9 September 1999 | by (New Orleans, Louisiana) – See all my reviews

This offbeat Western could have been another standard revenge flick, but the vivid portrayals from the stars inject lots of spice and no small amount of humor into the proceedings.

Raquel Welch portrays "Hannie", and Robert Culp craftily plays "Luther Price", ace bounty hunter, mankiller, and Hannie's mentor.

The real stars of this piece are Strother Martin, Jack Elam and Ernest Borgnine. If you can imagine 'The Three Stooges' as utterly filthy, scummy vagabonds with a propensity for murder, rape and theft, you might get an idea of how this family operates.

Strother Martin in particular is a delight; in the middle of a gunbattle he engages in a clumsy fistfight with one of his brothers over some trivial matter. Another priceless moment is when he presides at a brother's funeral, using a stolen Bible that he cannot even read.

Look for Christopher Lee's subtle and well-crafted performance as a former Confederate gunmaker.

Not your usual Western, this film is well worth watching despite its flaws.

Rated 7.7/10.
