Part "The Magnificent Seven", part "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" and a whole lotta "The Pride and the Passion" makes "100 Rifles" a fairly good overlooked spagetti western with an unusual and ecclectic cast that shouldn't be ignored. Burt Reynolds, in one of his earlier and most unique roles, actually makes an attempt at acting and does quite well. Reyonld's plays Yaqui Joe, a half American/half Yaqui Indian who robs a bank to buy guns to arm his people who are being executed on mass by the corrupt Mexican government. Jim Brown plays the lawman who chases Joe back to Mexico but, with much hesitation, takes up Joe's cause and becomes the Yaqui's general when he falls in love with the beautiful leader played by Raquel Welch. Reynolds and Brown have great comedic chemistry and Raquel Welch is at her sexiest. The film also features two of my personal favorite actors - tragic Spanish scream queen Soledad Miranda has a small role as the whore that Burt Reynolds wakes up to in the beginning of the film, and Eric Braedon plays an evil and manipulative German advisor to the Mexican governement that encourages the Indian holocoust. An excellent and enjoyable film. Must for western film fans.
