Critic Reviews for The Scalphunters
Lancaster and Davis work particularly well together, ditto Savalas and Winters. There are talky periods of slow pace, but they are terminated before undue damage has been done.
An amiable enough liberal comedy Western, with colour-coded cultural conflict worked through an ironic circular plot.
While the individual incidents are familiar, they are played with gusto by Lancaster and Davis.
Some movies are masterpieces, and most movies are not, and sometimes you get a movie that can best be described as 'interesting.' By that I mean it falls short of excellence but nevertheless has something that makes it worth seeing.
Navigating the movie's period attitude is relatively easy, but finding its sense of humor takes some work.
Audience Reviews for The Scalphunters
Semi comic western offset by a little too much violence. Shelley Winters is amusing as a shady lady who rolls with the punches and Burt Lancaster and a very young Ossie Davis have a nice rapport.
