An outstanding story of the conflict between good (John Mills as the priest Father Keogh) and evil (Dirk Bogarde as the charismatic bandit-in-black, Anacleto) for the control of the hearts and minds of a Mexican town, complicated by the involvenment of a beauty named Locha and the two male protagonists' grudging admiration for each other. Unfortunately, this German version (choice of English dialogue) is spoilt by the outrageous quality of the transfer: washed-out colours, fuzzy, out-of-focus, and the English speech, though it uses the original actors' voices, curiously doesn't quite sync with the lip movements! Not in original cinemascope ratio either. Look for another version. Would have given it five stars otherwise.

Careful! This film was not shot 1:33 as presented on this disc! It was shot in CinemaScope (or a variation thereof). There's a tremendous difference between a 1:33, panned and scanned presentation and the original aspect ratio!

Besides, it's a British film in what appears to be a German version here. It would be bad enough to have German subtitles in a squeezed, P&S print, but one wouldn't want Mills and Bogarde dubbed with English titles either!

Though it has developed a cult following over the years, the film was badly received originally, which probably explains why it has never been commercially released IN English and IN the correct aspect ratio.

I remember enjoying it about 30 years ago and have been seeking it for a long time. I had just about given up so it was a pleasant surprise to find
that it was available from amazon. It was just as good this time and more than met my expectations.

I first saw this movie when I was still a teenager, and frankly I loved it. I developed this huge crush on Dirk Bogarde! The film is about an outlaw played by Dirk Bogarde and a priest who tries to reform him played by John Mills. It is a good movie and worth watching.
