What is new here it's just the Stewart's "bad" side.  The score (at least the title song) is evidently influenced by Morricone's with the jewish part and the whistle. >Some good scenery. And that's about all. 5\10

It does have some picaresque touches.

"This is the first time I've been in my country since I've left".

It never gets old.  ;D

Almost as good:

Raquel: You didn't have to do this!
Deano: I didn't do it, he did it! And if he hadn't done it, I would have.

and

George Kennedy: Bishop. You're brothers. Well, listen up, brothers!

and

Raquel: No one will ever know who lies here.
George: Does it matter?
Raquel: Perhaps not.

THE END

 :D

Stewart impersonating the hangman & Stewart stopping to rob the bank on his getaway out of town.

Just saw "Bandolero!" with James Stewart, Dean Martin, and Raquel Welch. Directed by Andrew V. McLaglen.
 Not a great movie. Some of the early scenes with James Stewart are funny. The movie dies pretty quickly though.

I think Roger Ebert's review of this film is pretty spot-on http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/19680819/REVIEWS/808190301/1023

SPOILER ALERT

here is my analysis of the film:
The early parts with Stewart pretending to be the hangman are pretty funny. But the movie dies as soon as it moves from Texas to Mexico.

I know this is Hollywood, where everything has to be turned into a love story, but Raquel Welch going for Dean Martin after he killed her husband??! puhleeeez
(I know she said she never really liked her husband anyway, but she did say he was a kind man and it didn't seem that she hated him either).

Also, the bank robbery by Stewart -- while definitely adding some humor as well as adding a little to the plot -- is completely wrong for his character. He is supposed to be the "good brother," constantly lecturing Dean about his actions. Suddenly he just gets the urge to rob a bank? (True, it was the easiest robbery ever; maybe there's a theme there: that everyone,  -- even the "good guys" is really prone to crime, if it is easy enough for them to carry out).

And the final speech by Stewart to Raquel Welch about Dean really being a good boy just completely made me vomit.


I liked at least that there was no fairy tale ending, with everyone living happily ever after.

I tracked down this interview with Mr. McLaglen:

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/features/?id=2317

According to Andy, everyone in Hollywood was a nice guy to work with. I'm not buying. Maybe that's the secret to McLaglen's success though - he was/is a nice fellow whom actors knew they could push around.

They did themselves a favor they shouldn't have done to themselves. Irony.

The first 40 or so minutes are quite good indeed.
However, once Stewart reaches Martin's camp it becomes a typical 'aging Hollywood stars ' 60's Western
Also, the score is very good Goldsmith.
