In late-19th-century New Mexico a hunting party of decadent European aristocrats wanders onto the reservation of some angry Apaches and its up to the mysterious wanderer Shalako (Sean Connery) to save them from getting slaughtered. The group includes Honor Blackman (Pussy Galore in GOLDFINGER) as the sexually restless Lady Bagget and BrigItte Bardot as the sharp shooting Countess Lazaar who (of course) falls for Shalako. Its an unusual blend of wide-open Western action and European character intrigue as the decadent aristocrats sip champagne and flirt with their unwashed treacherous cowboy guides. Veteran director Edward Dmytryk keeps the flaming arrows flying while Connery and Bardot hold attention in this weird hybrid of American Western and European art film. (Yes Bardot has a seminude bathing scene.) SHALAKO based on the novel by Louis LAmour was filmed almost entirely outdoors amid the dark grey landscapes of Almeria Spain in a style undoubtedly indebted to the Sergio Leone spaghetti Westerns of the time.

Product Reviews

An offbeat western with a very unlikely cast

Connery, Hawkins, Eric Sykes and Honor Blackman in a western? Yes, and amazingly they pull it off. In truth it's a British group of travellers but it's an intriguing film. Well worth a look.
