Navigating the movie's period attitude is relatively easy, but finding its sense of humor takes some work.

...a seriously misguided and hopelessly dated endeavor that's best left forgotten.

A comical western with more than a hint of social satire.

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.

... never funny enough or Western enough or politically incisive enough to impress.

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.

Working on several levels, the film is entertaining as an outdoor adventure, a study in character and a movie with an explicit, but never heavy-handed, message.
