Gorgeous Raquel Welch in a film influenced by the Italian Western and shot in Spain
4 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

Hannie Coulder (Raquel Welch) is living along with her hubby when three nasty brothers (Ernest Borgnine , Jack Elam , Strother Martin) kill her husband and she is raped . She is healed by a bounty hunter (Robert Culp) who teaches her how to be an expert gunwoman . Later on , a gunsmith (Christopher Lee cameo) builds Hannie a specialized revolver for her journey ahead . The revenge starts and early she is ready for it .

The picture contains action , gun-play , humor and a little bit of violence when the violation and murders are happening . The film follows Spaghetti Western rules , thus gets violent feuds , greedy and extreme baddies , spectacular shot'em up , rapid showdowns, and habitual plot : the vengeance ; besides , being shot in Almeria (Spain) where during 1960s-1970s years had been filmed several Italian/Spanish Western . Quentin Tarantino later said the film was one of his inspirations for "Kill Bill . Raquel Welch is enjoyable and enticing , though wooden , Robert Culp as the veteran gunfighter is top-notch . Special mention for the humorous and ironical trio of brothers , they are amused parodying the Western killer gang . The usually villain Christopher Lee makes a brief intervention as good guy at a cameo , in his seven decade career , this is Christopher Lee's only Western . It appears Stephen Boyd as a ghostly gunman , he is uncredited at a brief appearance as the gunfighter simply known as "The Preacher" .

Lively and catching music by Ken Thorne . Glimmer and colorful cinematography by Edward Scaife . The film is produced by Tigon ,a known British production habitual in Horror films . The motion picture was directed by Burt Kennedy , a specialist in Western genre , he also rewrote the screenplay but was not credited . The film will appeal to Raquel Welch fans and Spaghetti Western enthusiasts .
