Documentary-like, at times; lots of ageing Hollywood regulars
14 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this interesting film on Youtube (which may explain the slightly peculiar colours). Set in the late 17th century, it seems to reflect Father Kino's story reasonably well, though it does plod along a bit and at times is almost a documentary. (See how to build a church), There's only one real action scene when the patrol led by a ruthless Spanish captain, played by John Russell, ("Lawman") is ambushed by Native Americans (and all of those featured in the film look the part).

The cast list is studded with well-known names (13 of which I knew) and looking out for them can be a distraction. (Pity that IMDb can't give the names of the characters they played.) Richard Egan, in his mid-fifties and in one of his last roles, plays Kino well enough. All of the other familiar names – those that I spotted anyway – were also past their peaks.

At least there was no contrived romance, and in fact I don't think any woman had a speaking role: the only one listed is Valerie Sorrell, who is billed as "Indian woman".
