Nun Sara is on the run in Mexico and is saved from cowboys by Hogan, who is preparing for a future mission to capture a French fort. The pair become good friends, but Sara never does tell him the true reason behind her being outlawed.
A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
Set in Mexico, a nun called Sara is rescued from three cowboys by Hogan, who is on his way to do some reconnaissance, for a future mission to capture a French fort. The French are chasing Sara, but not for the reasons she tells Hogan, so he decides to help her in return for information about the fort defences. Inevitably the two become good friends but Sara has a secret..Written by
During a Q&A at the TCM Film Fest in 2015, Shirley MacLaine had this to say about Clint Eastwood, "Quite brilliant, and funny... because he's so laconic and doesn't know it. I adore him... I remember when we were doing Two Mules for Sister Sara, his horse was acting up. This is when I knew he's a true Republican. He got off the horse, looked at the horse, and socked him." See more »
Not only the Colt 1873, but also rest of the small firearms in the movie - rifles as Bertie 1907, Winchester 1873 and Gras 1974 and a revolver Colt New Service - are anachronistic to the story plot, taking place in the 1860s (the French intervention in Mexico). See more »

To receive an 'A' (PG) certificate the UK cinema version was cut by the BBFC to remove shots of burning men and a soldier's face being slashed during the climax. The 1987 CIC video was 15-rated but featured a shorter print which missed around 8 minutes of footage. The 1993 widescreen video and all later DVD releases include the full uncut version. See more »
It was a different kind of western with a surprising ending. Clint Eastwood and Shirley McClaine had great chemistry and gave great performances; especially Clint Eastwood. It was fun to watch with a good story line. Very entertaining!
