Movie Info

As the winter of 1867 approaches, Denver inhabitants led by chronic drunk Oracle Jones (Donald Pleasence), who has visions when inebriated, realize with horror that their supply of whiskey will run out before the snows melt. Oracle devises a plan to bring cases of whiskey from a distillery, but is thwarted at every turn. A temperance leader (Lee Remick), three Sioux Indians, and the U.S. Cavalry become interested in the shipment, and a sandstorm and quicksand add to the difficulties.

Audience Reviews for The Hallelujah Trail

  • Jul 20, 2020
    Goofy fun from the 1960s as a wagon train full of whiskey draws attention from several different if thirsty quarters. The gist of the comedy of this piece is essentially that all of the actors overplay whatever distinction their character embodies. Warning: there are inappropriate Native stereotypes aplenty and w/o shame. For that matter all of the stereotypes in this, and all the characters are stereotypes, and are probably offensive across the board. But the aim is lighthearted comedy, perhaps forgiving the portrayals. Its cute.

    Satirical and funny! I'd become so accustomed to Burt Lancaster in serious dramatic roles that his brilliantly subtle humor took me by surprise. *NOTE: Watch for a very thin Donald Pleasence as the prognosticating 'Oracle'.
