A Fun Western, With A Valuable Lesson To Be Learned
An entertaining Western whose major selling points are a winning cast and beautiful outdoor photography, 1968’s “Bandolero!” proved an easy 100 minutes for me to sit through. In it, James Stewart rescues brother Dean Martin and his sleazy gang from a neck-stretching party in 1867 Texas, after Dino & Co.’s botched bank robbery. They hightail it over the Mexican border with the recently widowed “vistoso” Mexican Raquel Welch as their hostage, while sheriff George Kennedy and his posse follow in hot pursuit. Truth be told, Kennedy is more hot for Raquel than the pursuit of justice, and who wouldn’t be? Racky, 28 here and at the peak of her sex goddess phase, looks terrific, and acts very passably. She makes for a very convincing Mexican (although, in real life, her father was Bolivian and her mother of English descent). Stewart (need it even be said?) is fine as always, and supplies much of the film’s humor with his double takes and slowpoke delivery. This is no Anthony Mann Western, however, and Stewart was ever so much more impressive in oaters such as “Winchester ’73” (1950) and especially “The Naked Spur” (1953). Dino, it should be added, is also fine as a decent guy who just can’t seem to make good. “Bandolero!” also features some amusing lesser characters (particularly that hangman!) and a surprisingly gritty and quite violent conclusion. It’s no Peckinpah bloodbath, but following what is essentially a fun, lighthearted Western, it does shake the viewer. Lesson to be learned: Don’t press your sexual “favors” on a Mexican woman if she’s anywhere near a six-shooter!
All-star western time-waster…
Western about bank-robbing brothers in small Texas town benefits from some surprisingly violent action and an improbable but watchable cast. James Stewart rarely plays the bad guy, but he’s acceptable here saving brother Dean Martin (!) from hanging. They kidnap Raquel Welch, the heavily-accented Spanish widow of a man slain in Dean’s latest robbery, and take it on the lam, followed by good-hearted sheriff George Kennedy. A bloody attack by Mexican bandits–the bandoleros of the title–is vicious, though the rest of the film suffers from a lack of energy. Stewart and Martin are unlikely siblings, but they’re old pros and know how to make scenes work between them; Welch, on the other hand, needs a strong director to scale down her impulses to overact, but director Andrew V. McLaglen doesn’t have that knack (he’s more concerned with set-pieces than with intimate scenes driven by the characters). A $12M box-office hit in its time, now a forgotten vehicle for the stars. ** from ****
