Box set containing three movies starring Raquel Welch. In 'Bandelero' (1968), Mace Bishop (James Stewart) arrives in town with the intention of freeing a gang of outlaws, including his brother, Dee (Dean Martin), from the gallows. They are pursued by a sheriff (George Kennedy), whose lady friend (Welch) has the hots for Dee. The brothers try to go straight, but before they can make up their mind they find themselves surrounded by Mexican banditos and are forced to team up with the sheriff to fight them off. In 'Fantastic Voyage' (1966), a group of medics (Stephen Boyd, Welch, William Redfield, Arthur Kennedy and Donald Pleasance) and a submarine are miniaturised and injected into the bloodstream of a top Czech scientist, who was shot while defecting, in order to carry out delicate, life-saving surgery. Travelling though his body is hazardous, but far more dangerous is the suspicion that one of them is a traitor. They race against time to perform the surgery and escape from the body before they return to their full size. In 'Fathom' (1967) a voluptuous dental hygienist-turned-skydiver Fathom Harvill (Welch) is recruited by a top-secret government agency to parachute into Spain in search of an elusive war defector (Tony Franciosa) and a missing H-bomb detonator he is believed to possess. But the super sexy spy may expose more than she bargained for as she unravels the truth behind her employer's motives. In 'Lady In Cement' (1968), Tony Rome (Frank Sinatra) is a private detective who finds a woman encased in cement while he is out scuba diving. Hired to find the killer, Tony soon finds she was involved in the Miami underworld and may have been killed as part of a gangland double-cross. As he tries to bring the killer to justice, Tony finds himself evading both cops and crooks.

This quartet comprises 4 discs each as varied as the enigmatic female star star herself -
A colourful ,vibrant ,spy spoof set in Spain, where as Fathom the voluptuous secret agent ,she parachutes from planes,shoots the villains and creates a hilarious sexy spy spoof with Tony Franciosa ,playing the sexy male counterpart, a rather thin plot about a missing H-bomb detonator ,this rocks due to the sexual chemistry between the two leads ,some really good humour ,and the aerial stunts in the spanish sky over the blue Mediterranean sea are amazingly glib and deft .
This movie is a 'cult classic 'as this and 'Barbarella'with Jane fonda started the trend where femme fatales ,came into their own as feminist versions of "JAMES BOND "in the swinging sixties .
A UNIQUE SCIENCE FICTION ,where a scientific medical team reduced to microbial size must travel within a human body in a submarine to repair a medical emergency ,and the body in question is a very important human being and they cannot afford to miss their target against any odds while the opponents try to counterfoil their heroic mission and voyage .
Stephen Boyd and Donald Pleasance accompany her in this classic adventure with superb sfx and incredible medical details of human entails ,constructed for the screen immaculately in some of the best "set designs "ever produced by Hollywood and watch out for the passage through various 'human organs 'as each is exquisitely reproduced by the studio wizards .
The kind of sci-fi CLASSIC ,Hollywood shines in producing with their immaculate production skills and values .
This is an under-rated and truly great Western adventure setin Texas and Mexico in bandolero country,and a movie you can savour whether you like westerns or not as it is extremely sophisticated in character details and the script is truly a surprise which seems to get better with repeated viewings as it is full of thists and turns and also extremely unpredictable where nothing is a "genre cliche ", Dean martin and James Stewart as "warring brothers"who have to come together to help each other and Raquel Welch ,who has been taken ransom by a gang of bank robbers ,and this is packed with great gun battles and smart dialogue ,with a truly unique portrayal by James stewart who shines in the role of the elderly brother, who dreams of a quiet peaceful life for himself and his kid brother played poignantly and very affectively by Dean martin, possibly in his best screen appearance ,and Raquel Welch is both a bone of contention between the band of "posse riders"and also superbly cast as a "Mexican American lady" ,who is accidentally caught in this male mayhem but makes her presence felt by her beauty and talent in every scene .
As the posse rides deeper into the wild Mexican terrain ,the script and characters evolve intelligently and emotionally where each character becomes a vivid individual in their own right and all three stars and actors shine in a serene human drama which has a rare empathy for a western .
Technically it is superb too as it is almost set totally in the rugged outdoors with great panoramic vistas of wild west ,and the action is authentic and very contemporary with an excellent musical score to go with the outstanding visuals .
The movie does not look dated at all and actually seems to have improved with time as you can appreciate by the finesse of the direction and the trivial detail on the screen and it is extremely enjoyable in the bargain as well as being emotionally satisfying with a grand finale .
LADY IN CEMENT-
Frank sinatra returns as private eye "Sydney rome" to investigate a murder and both Welch as a tragic alcoholic beauty and himself become chief murder suspects in a twisted thriller which is a "fil moir" and an investigative detective story .
This is an interesting sixties thriller for Sinatra-Raquel fans with a clever plot and good performances, but despite being a good thriller ,it is the least compelling of all the four discs in my opinion .
Together the 4 discs are great value and a great adventure for vicarious tastes with Raquel Welch in her prime in each feature in vicarious roles .
I do wish they had put '100 rifles 'in this pack to complete a great catch but it is quite good and i am not complaining ,as for the price it is a steal .
The recipiant of the box set was most pleased.
