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.
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.

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

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.Read more ›
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
plenty of 'Eastwood' humour on board as always along with explosive
roles such as this is what helped build the screen legend that is
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' )
