When Thomas Luther Price attempts to arrest Frank Clemens, in close-up he crosses his arms in front of himself, and his left hand (holding the twice-folded wanted poster of Frank) is on top of his right wrist. The camera angle immediately shifts out to a widened view that includes Frank, and now Thomas' right hand is on top of his left wrist and the wanted poster in his left hand is only folded once.

Thomas Luther Price: [teaching Hannie to deal with multiple adversaries] Now, there's a feller over here on your left, lookin' mean. Standing tall in the sun. He's got his thumbs hooked in his gunbelt, legs wide apart, hat tipped back. Over on your right is a fellow who's face you can't see. His hat's over his eyes, he's turned away from you , looks like he doesn't even notice you. Now, you gotta kill both of 'em. It would behoove you to kill the fastest one first. Up to it.

The Good, the Bad and the Beautiful
19 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

Pretty terrific western is outlandish, yet engrossing, satisfying and often funny (both intentionally and unintentionally). After being violently raped, widowed and left for dead by three dirty, cackling brothers, Raquel Welch learns to shoot a gun from hot-headed bounty hunter Robert Culp and hopes to seek her revenge on the mangy trio. Welch is sexy and droll as Hannie Caulder, and we are on her side from the get-go. She receives excellent support from Culp, Christopher Lee as a gunsmith and the three villains, Jack Elam, Strother Martin and Ernest Borgnine. A fairly unusual western which, until "Ms. 45" and "Sudden Impact", pretty much stood alone in the female sharpshooter genre. A large portion of its success belongs to Ms. Welch, convincing and sympathetic while riding the vengeance trail...but always remembering, "win or lose--you lose." Nobody won any awards for this, but it is exceptionally well done. *** from ****
