The kind of shoot 'em up Civil War flick that Hollywood did so very well, with a slick tongue in cheek script, plenty of star power, glorious technicolor, and a real cattle stampede (although How the West Was Won had the best stampede scene, but that was buffalo). They don't make movies like this anymore.

Alvarez Kelly is an incredible film. It is about a Mexican cattleman who has little interest in the Civil War except to make money. William Holden and Richard Widmark give excellent performances. The script is well written. Edward Dmytryk did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this movie because of the drama. Alvarez Kelly is a must see.

Gargantuanly clever dialogues. Holden's character's lines are witty, enourmously sarcastic and really, really, funny. For those expecting a classic war movie or a hardened romance, is an utter disappointment. For the ones expecting being told an epic story with a delightful rascal for main character, this is the right movie.
