Russell J The plot moves right slong quickly. An amusing western with good comedic and even dramatic moments. Requires you to really put on up your suspenders of disbelief at one point when the bandits led by Jebediah Catlow (Yul Brynner) are stealing a shipment of gold. It is also fun to see Leonard Nimoy in a role other than Spock. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/01/22 Full Review Audience Member Okay western comedy is kept afloat mostly by it's two leads, Yul Brynner and Richard Crenna. Brynner plays Callow, a fast talking cowboy conman, who steals cattle from a wealthy rancher. Civil War buddy and now sheriff, Crenna, goes after Brynner, as does a vicious killer hired by the aggrieved rancher. The film gets a lot of milage from Leonard Nimoy playing the hired gun. Seeing Mr. Spock in a villainous and highly animated role is a whole lot of fun, even if his part is a smaller one. And Nimoy isn't the only one playing against type. The usually stoic Brynner is equally amusing to watch all goofy and smiling (at one point he even gets to mug after getting kicked in the groin). On the downside, the comedy as scripted isn't all that funny, though the cast does the most with what they have. Despite that, the film is fast paced, never boring, and I consider myself entertained. Overall, this is far from a western classic, but it's a must-see for Brynner and Nimoy fans, and well worth checking out for western fans. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Less than serious in its delivery, it nevertheless has a good style and mood to it, although the gun play and scenarios are deadly enough. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member 150328: Mild humour throughout. Great to see Brynner & Nimoy, though this is not your Star Trek Nimoy. Buddy buddy movie with buddies on the opposite side of the law. Felt it was a might slow at times. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member this is a great ,movie why isn't Leonard Nimoy in the cast list on this page his character is important to the story :-( Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Funny western with an agreeable hero , Brynner , and a nasty villain,Nimoy--Comedic Elements Save "Catlow" From Abject Mediocrity!!
