No singing, no dancing, just Frank and Dean in the old west drinking whiskey and banging beautiful ladies. The great surprise of this western was that Charles Bronson was the villian. Of course though even at his toughest he is no match for Frank and Dean.

I'm dealing with two mental midgets here
A stage coach robbery attempt leads to $100,000 being obtained by the stage coach riders rather than the robbers. The robbers and riders will fight over the opportunity to walk away from the situation with a load of cash. However, the coach riders may need to work together to overcome the onslaught efforts of the robbers.

Robert Aldrich, director of Dirty Dozen, The Frisco Kid, The Angry Hills, Ten Seconds to Hell, and Apache, delivers Four for Texas. The storyline for this picture is interesting and contains a solid blend of action, character development, and comedy. The script is well written and each character is well presented. The cast is impressive and delivers solid performances. The cast contains the Three Stooges, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Anita Ekberg, Charles Bronson, Ursula Andress, and Jack Elam.

I have recently been DVR'ing Charles Bronson pictures. This movie jumped off the page for me when I discovered it starred Bronson and an amazing "A-list" cast. While this isn't the greatest western you will ever see, it is an entertaining film with a clever script and solid comedic sequences. I do recommend giving this picture is a viewing if you are a fan of westerns.

A stinker. Basically an excuse for Sinatra and Dino to hang out with exceptionally beautiful women and drink excessively. And then sorta put in some kind of effort when the cameras roll. Although they only do that from time to time. Charles Bronson's in there, and Victor Buono... and the Three Stooges... yeah, I didn't know what was going on either. Although it did have Ursula Andress in a see-through dress. So I guess it was worthwhile.
