Is There a Motel Six in Town
13 May 2006 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Dave drifts into dusty town and decidedly unfriendly saloon (read "brothel"), patronized by carousing cowboys and hookers of various racial varieties, and presided over by tough-talking Jean Willes. Bar scene is none to convincing-- too much yelping and sophomoric byplay no doubt constrained by production code of the day. Fine acting by Keith and Willes almost pull off sentimental later scenes and none too persuasive finale. Overall, the script and direction lack usual series bite. Best line-- "Don't let me stand in the way", Dave's unexpected response to Williams' threat to shoot Dave's snarling buddy, big dog Brown. Notable for the jeering at Dave's unusual last name. My guess is Peckinpah chose to honor someone in his past by using the same name for the series' central character.
