the western

For no particular reason I found myself watching westerns this week. One was the well-thought of The Ox-Bow Incident with a relatively young Henry Fonda. Very good movie.

The other was 1968's Bandolero! with Dean Martin, Jimmy Stewart and a youthful and fetching Raquel Welch. This, too, was quite good. But if you don't like westerns it won't be your cup of tea. It's very representative of a certain type of middle-of-the-road western Hollywood was making in the late 1960's.

But I liked it anyway!
