afi recently rated this the #10 best western of all-time; i think not. first, if this is a western then so is blazing saddles and that’s a better film than this. second, it’s a decent enough flick, but it isn’t in the top ten of anything, except maybe the top ten jane fonda films…it’s got a catchy main theme that’s sung in part by nat king cole. it also is interesting because of how it plays with the western genre by flipping things on their head. it’s entertaining for that reason alone.
