THE TRAIN ROBBERS (1972),
This review is from: Train Robbers [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Three civil war veterans team up with a train robber's widow to recover a cool half-million in hidden gold. The widow (Ann Margaret) knows where the gold is burried. It turns out that it is in the belly of the train engine burried now in the sand. Three friends (John Wayne, Rod Taylor and Ben Johnson) agree to take her and collect $50,000 reward. They take Christopher George, Bobby Vinton and Jerry Galtin as helpers.
But the dead man's ex-partners also want this gold and will kill to get it. The caravan heads towards the dunes and the gang of robbers follow them. After arriving at the disabled train, the gold is taken out, but the gang surround them watched by Ricardo Montalban. After a shoot out, the gang retreat back to town and the caravan follows them.
Michael Wayne produces and Burt Kennedy directs this interesting beautifully photographed western in super-widescreen. The back ground music by Dominic Frontiere is also nice.The talk between John Wayne, Rod taylor and Ben Johnson is also funny at times. Will the caravan survive? Will the gang get their gold?
Watch and ENJOY. (ENGLAND. UK)
