McLaglen and screenwriter James Lee Barrett team up with actor James Stewart for this Western about a band of ex-convicts trying to go straight. Stewart stars as Mattie Appleyard, the leader of the group. After serving his time, Mattie retrieves a 25,000-dollar check from a banker who looked after his funds while he was in prison. Along with his two pals, Mattie intends to use the money to open up a general store and make a fresh start. Unfortunately for them, the banker and a former jailer both look to stand in the way of their dreams. George Kennedy, who also had roles in Shenandoah and Bandolero!, co-stars as Dock Council, the former prison official, and a young Kurt Russell appears in one of his first non-Disney films. ...Bandolero!

If you like Westerns, or you're a fan of either Dean Martin, James Stewart or Raquel Welch, then Bandolero! is great way to pass 102 minutes of movie action.

Set in Texas and Mexico in 1867, the film follows the Bishop gang who get caught robbing a bank, escape the hangman's noose and find themselves over the border in dusty Mexico being tailed by a Texas sheriff and his ten man posse. A horde of roving bandits are thrown into the mix and the whole thing ends up in a climactic shoot up and a high body count.

Although there's much violence here, Bandolero! is filmed in the traditional way and is not a gritty 'spaghetti' western. In fact, it has a wholesome feel to it and even has a sprinkling of romance and family reconcilement in the post-Civil War era thrown in.

The cast make this movie and, as usual, James Stewart brings effortless gravitas to the story. Dean Martin seems to excel in his cheeky chappy roles and Raquel Welsh is the delectable eye candy. I'm sure we'll forgive her attempts at a Mexican accent. At one point, a Mexican bandit also attempts to rape her and her black tights are clearly on display - almost a century before they were actually invented - but again, I'm sure that movie watchers will forgive such historical inaccuracies...

Overall, a very watchable, traditional type of Western with a great story and an all star cast. Although there's nothing by way of any extras here, this DVD does not disappoint.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Unmarked Grave for Many 2 April 2009
By Bob Salter TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Andrew V McLaglen was not a director who stamped his own individual mark on a film. He churned out lots of good solid films with established stars. Films like "McLintock"(63) with John Wayne and "Shenandoah"(65) with James Stewart. Whilst not gifted he was dependable. "Bandolero"(68) was one of his better offerings.

Mace Bishop played by James Stewart arrives in town in hangmans garb to rescue his brother Dee played by Dean Martin. Dee and his gang have tried unsuccessfully to rob the bank. They now have an invitation to a necktie party. Mace springs the gang and manages to rob the bank as well. Dee takes along Maria played by Raquel Welch, who is the wife of a man killed in the robbery. The gang are pursued by a vengeful possee led by the sheriff July Johnson played by George Kennedy and his deputy Roscoe played by Andrew Pine. July has more than a passing interest in Maria. The gang is chased over the border into Mexico and into hostile Bandolero territory. As the journey progresses Maria starts to fall for Dee. Later the possee capture the gang in an abandoned town only to be attacked by the fierce bandoleros. July is forced to release the gang to fight for their lives. In the final showdown nearly everyone is killed. An unmarked grave is the final resting place for most.

James Stewart previously explored the close bonds between brothers in another very enjoyable film "Night Passage"(57) where his bandit brother was Audie Murphy. Stewart was beginning to age in this film but he just about passes muster as Deanos brother. Raquel Welch looks very beautiful in trying conditions. Her role was very similar to that of Claudia Cardinale in "The Professionals"(66). Larry McMurtry the famous Western writer reportedly paid homage to the film in his cowboy epic "Lonesome Dove".
