Customer Review

on 24 May 2002
When I first saw this movie...many years ago on TV I loved it. I was so excited with the story, the scenery, the gunfights...I loved that smiling, black-dressed cowboy (Burt Lancaster) even though I didn't know who he was. The story goes as follows:
Gary Cooper (playing a decent, honest, gentleman cowboy) and Burt Lancaster (a selfish-antihero cowboy) portray western adventurers, who after the American Civil War, are looking to hire out their guns to any cause that is willing to pay a price. The two characters are met by accident and ment to become friends and competitors at the same time. At first, the two agree to hire out to the Emperor Maximillan on an escort job, that involves taking a beautiful Countess (Denise Darcel) of the court to Vera Cruz. But something else is going on with this escort and Juaristas revolutionaries, loyal troops to the emperor, and a gang of cowboys are very interested in...GOLD.
Lots of exciting gunfighting, multible double crosses and betrayals, love stories, gold, all together with a magnificent One-on-One gunfight at the very end qualify this film as one of the best western movies ever made.
Burt Lancanser...even as a "bad guy" steals the show. A must-see for all ages.
