Cómo se echan en falta estos actorazos hoy. La curiosidad de ver a Sara Montiel. Y ese título que da nombre a uno de los personajes de Almodóvar (Vera Cruz). Recomendable incluso para quienes no sean partidarios de los westerns.23 julio 2015 (Editado)

"A cynical and brash Western that anticipates a new type of Western soon to come that makes its heroes into amoral characters. It's the forerunner to the likes of the Sergio Leone "spaghetti western" and Sam Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch (1969). It was the first release in Superscope and the lush photography by Ernest Laszlo is stunning (it was filmed on location in Mexico). Robert Aldrich ("The Dirty Dozen"/"Apache") directs with an eye for choreographing the action sequences and gunplay. It's based on a story by Borden Chase and written by Roland Kibbee and James R. Webb. Basically a "buddy film" that tries hard to be appealing as both a comedy and a lively action-packed nonsense yarn filled with more double-crosses than you believe possible in a ninety-four minute film; it also makes the most out of having Gary Cooper and Burt Lancaster as stars. If you like your westerns with a salsa topping, this one should be spicy enough. "
