In the cactus-studded Mexican backcountry of the 1860s, a surly drifter who could easily be mistaken for the Man with No Name becomes protector and lethal helpmate to a red-haired nun wanted by the French for aiding the Juarista revolutionaries. Essentially a two-character showcase for the newly stellar Clint Eastwood and what was beginning to seem the poststellar Shirley MacLaine (subbing for Elizabeth Taylor), this sardonic study in testy collaboration, mutual deception and distrust, and slightly creepy sexual attraction is highly rated by a fairly small number of critics--chiefly, one suspects, for the dual-auteur cachet of having been directed by Don Siegel and based on a story by Budd Boetticher. Others deem it an undersauced spaghetti Western and find that the stars grate on the viewer as well as each other. Cinematography by the great Gabriel Figueroa is some consolation, but... if only Boetticher had been allowed to direct. --Richard T. Jameson

Product Description

Old Mexico, occupied by the French, is a magnet for American mercenaries, looking to make a fast buck in the lawless country. One such gold-digger (Clint Eastwood) shows his fundamentally noble nature by saving a 'nun' (Shirley Maclaine) from being raped. She turns out in fact to be a prostitute, and the odd couple team up, facing continual confrontation with the French forces.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Mules for Sister Sara (Blu-ray version) 1 April 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This 1970 production directed by Don Siegel starring Clint Eastwood and Shirley Maclaine who play wonderfully off each other with Clint still playing the character from the films he made with Sergio Leone and Maclaine giving a fine performance as the “Nun” with the secret this Western is quite comic at times with a dark storyline which is finally released in the UK on Blu-ray in the May of 2013, the disc is encoded with the VC1 codec in full 1080p resolution in its original 2.35 aspect ratio the sound is now changed to DTS-HD Master Audio stereo (48hz 24bit) from the Dolby Digital stereo of the 2002 DVD release the sound track is reborn from the DVD release giving the viewer an improved watching experience with an easier to understand dialogue track the music track has better separation and the sound effects such as the gunfire and explosions along with the deeper blacks greater colour palette of the picture the Blu-ray is a worthy up-grade from the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars The donkey's cute, too 31 May 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an amusing story set in the last months of the Napoleon III grab at Mexico. Well written, well cast, and beautifully filmed in Mexico. Shirley MacLaine and Clint Eastwood give polished performances; both of them able to effortlessly combine comedy with drama. I won't spoil the plot by describing it, but I will say that if you haven't yet seen this movie, then go for it. The weaponry is anachronistic, but who cares? Worth every penny, good enough to be viewed again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'GREAT CHEMISTRY BETWEEN 'CLINT' AND 'SHIRLEY' 10 May 2013
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
'Clint Eastwood' plays 'Hogan'
he sells his talents with gun and dynamite to the highest bidder,
on rout to his next job he comes across three rough-necks who are
threatening and taunting 'Sara'
'Hogan' comes to the rescue, however he gets a surprise, when 'Sara'
gets her cloths back on, she's dressed as a nun.
the two travel together.
'Hogan' is heading for a French Garrison to help Mexican rebels, his
price --half of the bounty held at the Garrison.
'Sara' cannot keep up the pretence of being a nun for too long ??
romance so obviously on the menu.
although filmed in Mexico the film is very much in the style of the
spaghetti westerns.
plenty of 'Eastwood' humour on board as always along with explosive
roles such as this is what helped build the screen legend that is
'Clint Eastwood'
well worth revisiting, if you've not seen it before you'll not be
( not Blu-ray standard in truth, however the picture quality is better
than on 'dvd' )

4.0 out of 5 stars Cinematography from a True Master. 10 Dec 2009
You could easily be forgiven for assuming that "Two Mules for Sister Sara" is a typical "Spaghetti western", but you would be wrong in that assumption. Unlike the vast majority of those westerns which were filmed in Europe this one was filmed entirely on location in Mexico, and boy does it show! It is also directed by and financed by Americans. The distinctive musical score by the Italian master Ennio Morricone adds to the spaghetti feel, as does Clint Eastwood's appearance, still looking and acting in the guise of his "Man with no Name" character from his series of "dollar westerns" with the spaghetti great Sergio Leone. The film reminds me of one of those animals that have learnt to mimic another species to perfection! But to call it a mere mimic would be an injustice because it has a number of good features that lift it above the average western.

The film is set during the French intervention in Mexico in the 1800's. A mercenary played by Eastwood rescues a nun played by Shirley MacLaine from rape and murder. Together they travel to fight with the Juarista's against the despotic French. Eastwood for money, and MacLaine for the cause. As the journey progresses it becomes apparent that our nun is not all she seems. No great surprises there! We head to a bloody confrontation between the Juarista's and a heavily manned French garrison. The odds are against our band of heroes. But when have the odds got in the way of a good story?

What lifts this film above the average is the striking cinematography of the great Mexican genius Gabriel Figueroa, a man who resisted the lure of Hollywood and worked mostly in his country of birth.

This was a bit of a comedy western but is still a classic and has some really classic bits in there, worth the upgrade and another essential western.
