This review is from: The Scalphunters [DVD] (DVD)
A funny, clever film with Burt Lancaster at his very best in this western comedy. Joe Bass (Lancaster) is a trapper/frontiersman who after a winter of gathering furs is forced to "trade" them for a black slave (Ossie Davis).
The film is then centred on Bass' funny and ingenious efforts to reclaim his beaver pelts.
The exchanges between Davis' cultured slave character, Joseph Lee, and the illiterate Bass are witty and sharp
with the final fight sequence being the funniest I have seen.
A fantastic movie.
