Product Description

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.

From Amazon.co.uk

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
Two Mules for Sister Sara is directed by Don Siegel and adapted to screenplay by Albert Maltz from a story by Budd Boetticher. It stars Clint Eastwood, Shirley MacLaine, Manolo Fabregas and Alberto Morin. A Panavision/Technicolor production, the music is scored by Ennio Morricone and cinematography by Gabriel Figueroa.

Set during the reign of Emperor Maximilian in Mexico, plot finds Eastwood as a reconnaissance drifter for hire who saves a nun (MacLaine) from being gang-raped by three cowboys. Forming an unusual alliance as journey companions, it turns out that Sister Sara has many secrets to reveal...

It hardly set the American box office alight and critical reviews were lukewarm to say the least, and with Boetticher himself proving quite vociferous in his displeasure at how his source story was handled, Two Mules for Sister Sara is often thought of as a stinker. Is it? Well it's undeniably too long and Siegel is hardly stretching his directing prowess, but it's a fun adventure movie that is beautifully photographed and for the most part it finds Eastwood and MacLaine as a watchable double act. The central jokes of having Eastwood "fancy" a nun and said nun put into a number of compromising situations - wears thin because of the over long running time - but the film gets wrapped up nicely with some high octane action and a smile inducing ending.

Middle tier Eastwood and Siegel stuff for sure, and the prudes should stay away, but this is certainly better than its reputation suggests; flaws and all. 7/10

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.

Format: DVD
Shot in Mexico, and directed by Don Siegel with lovingly-detailed attention to the landscape, this 1970 movie is maybe a little slower than it might have been, but it's still enjoyable, even if it is a bit of an odd mixture of the violent and the comic. Most of the violence that might bother some viewers comes late, in a big battle scene, and the comedy, almost predictably, comes from the deadpan interactions of the main characters, Sister Sara (Shirley Maclaine) and the opportunistic gun-for-hire Hogan (Clint Eastwood), neither of whom is quite what he or she appears to be. What lies beneath the constructed personae is something that the audience begins to suspect quite quickly, but there's a pleasure in the leisurely pacing that defers our finding out whether or not we're right about them. I should add that the effective music is by Ennio Morricone, and as it plays over the great opening-credit visuals, it tells us that there are going to be odd things ahead.

The setting is Mexico, close to the American border, right after the Civil War, in which Hogan has fought. The movie doesn't say on which side he fought, but he now sees himself as a "sucker" for having been involved, and one can think of reasons why he might think that no matter what side he was on. Now he's looking for money and has made a deal with the Juarista Mexican rebel Colonel Beltran (Juan Fabregas) to help remove a French garrison from a fort in Chihuahua. Western aficionados will realize that the historical circumstances here are those of the earlier Burt Lancaster/Gary Cooper vehicle "Vera Cruz." The French are trying to maintain a colonial puppet government in Mexico, while the Mexicans are seeking their freedom. Hogan is on the Mexican side for the money - he says, and up to a point believes.

'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
action.
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
disappointed.
( not Blu-ray standard in truth, however the picture quality is better
than on 'dvd' )
