Shalako 07/17/17

KL Studio Classics

It’s 007 in the saddle! Sean Connery didn’t become a career cowboy but this one stint as a Louis L’Amour hero is a diverting change of pace. And we couldn’t resist the pairing of two of moviedom’s most attractive actors — Connery and Brigitte Bardot. Terence Young’s cast is almost all-star: Jack Hawkins, Honor Blackman, Peter Van Eyck, Stephen Boyd, Alexander Knox and Valerie French — with Woody Strode as Chato, challenging BondShalako to a duel to the death. Actually, it’s rather good. On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
