100 Rifles was release in Australia at the beginning of March and wasn't release in New York City until March 26, 1969. 100 Rifles is a 1969 western directed by Tom Gries. The film stars Jim Brown, Burt Reynolds, Raquel Welch, and Fernando Lamas. Jerry Goldsmith composed the original music.Summary: In the early 1900's, Yaqui Joe, a half-breed Indian, robs an Arizona bank and flees across the border into the Mexican town of Nogales where the governor, General Verdugo, aided by a German military adviser, Von Klemme, is waging a war of annihilation against the Yaqui Indians. Verdugo <more>
captures Joe and orders him shot, whereupon Lyedecker, a black American deputy assigned to bring the half-breed back to the States, intervenes, and is himself arrested. The two men escape to the hills where Sarita, a beautiful Indian revolutionary, joins them. After Joe has revealed that he used the bank loot to purchase 100 rifles for the Indians, General Verdugo once more captures the two men and orders them shot. Determined to see that the rifles reach her people, Sarita leads an attack on the General's hacienda and frees the two men as well as the rifles. Enraged, Lyedecker, finally on over to both Sarita and the Indian cause, rescues the children, and vows to destroy Verdugo.Question: What did Verdugo storm Yaqui village. Who finally won over both Sarita and the Indians? Who took over the leadership of the Yaquis? Why did Lyedecker ambushes Verdugo's train? Who distracted the attention of the soldiers? Why was the railroad manager, Grimes, captured by the Indians? Who outwitted the General? Now a few thoughts about this picture. I thought Jim brown was excellent in his role as Lyle Decker. Not only were Brown and excellent football player he was a good actor. What can you say about Burt Reynolds that hasn't already been said. He was usually his funny self with ways of getting out of trouble like any actor I know. Finally Raquel Welch! Her role as Sarita was fantastic the way she handle herself in the entire picture. The part where she's changing he clothes in the tent and the shower part under the watering tank was the best part of the movie. I give this picture 10 star for two reasons. The first and the most important was Raquel Welch as the leading woman with her beautiful body and her fantastic mine. The second reason because if you like action this movie had it and plenty of it.Some Trivia about this movie: Though this movie has often been called a "spaghetti western," it actually isn't. That term is applied to westerns that were filmed by European companies usually Italian , with a European usually Italian cast and crew and shot in Spain, because its terrain closely resembles the northeast Mexico/southwest US area. Although this film was shot in Spain, an American studio 20th Century-Fox filmed it with an American director, producer, writers, and mostly American crew. Star Burt Reynolds' previous film, Navajo Joe, would be properly regarded as a "spaghetti western," but not this one.
Good western action movie that could have been better with more quality editing for some scenes tended to drag.Also,some action sequences had bad choreography most particularly in the first half of the movie.Great train battle action sequences later on in the movie though!Welch was so sexy and gave it her all despite a limited role for her while Brown,though very macho,could not act well enough in this one.Very good performances by Reynolds and Lamas.Not a movie for conservative people.The story/script is average although it seems to have been inspired by LAWRENCE OF ARABIA,then injected with <more>
This was well directed by Tom Gries a veteran TV director Route 66, Combat, Rat Patrol, Man From Uncle who's previous Western was "Will Penny".This is a "no-pata" Western, sort of like a Zapata Western with no politics much like "The Wild Bunch" which fits this category.The cast has Jim Brown, Burt Reynolds, Raquel Welch, Frenando Lamas, Eric Braeden, Aldo Sambrel, and a lot of SW extras that you will recognize. Shot in beautiful Almeria, the release is in uncut widescreen.Spoilers:The story opens with the hanging of Sarita's Welches father by the <more>
Federales. Officer Verdugo Lamas is a blood-thirsty bastard, and he purposely pulls the horse out from Sarita's father so slowly so he's strangled rather than has his neck broke. Sarita runs up and jumps upon her father using her weight to kill him quickly, its a powerful scene.Sarita now becomes a Soldada, a Yaqui leader.Jim Brown ex NFL football star isn't all that bad in this and he is believable as Arizona policeman Lyedecker on the trail of Yaqui Joe a Half Breed cross of a Yaqui Indian-Alabama Good-old-boy father Burt Reynolds who has robbed 6,000 dollars from an Arizona bank. With which he purchased the 100 rifles of the title for Sarita and The Yaquis.This film does have some great action set pieces the escape of Yaqui Joe & Lyedecker out of the train and through the town shows off Reynolds stuntman abilities and Brown's athleticism.There is a great bout of horsemanship as the group of Yaquis descend down an unbelievably steep canyon, its really pretty exciting seeing the horses negotiate that decent.All the action sequences are good, no complaints, especially Raquel's shower sequence more like a wet "T" shirt shower where she stops a troop train by a water tower, watch the spider holes.The train wreck at the end is also done well.I'm thinking now that these American or British financed Euro shot Zapatas & "nopatas" are some of the best clones of the general SW trends in Westerns that influenced the genre after Leone's successes. They never reached the heights that Leone did with "gunfight" based Westerns like FAFDM or GBU but with "Villa Rides" a Zapata and this film they very good jobs of cloning the Italian directors, the only missing elements are the innovative camera angles and the picaresque characters. I also thought "Chato's Land" was very good in its chase/manhunt sub genre while The Hunting Party was good but had a few minor flaws.On the other hand Welches Hannie Caulder is lame in comparison.100 Rifles even has a decent score, its not at Morricone's level but its good enough.Another couple of interesting angles is the emergence of Welch as a strong believable protagonist in this film, and also the inter-racial sexual affair between Brown & Welch. Cinematically speaking I don't quite know if after "The Great Silence" breaking this particular taboo if this was the next instance of inter-racial love or not.This is one of Jim Browns best performances in a Western that I've seen so far, though I've not seen them all , and haven't seen El Condor since seeing it in a theater years ago so that claim may change.Its worth finding and buying for your collection
Continuing my plan to watch every Burt Reynolds movie in his filmography in order, I come to 100 Rifles.Plot in A Paragraph: Set in Mexico during Indian oppression and rebellion. Law man Lyedecker Jim Brown arrives in town in hot pursuit of Yaqui Joe Burt Reynolds who has stolen $6000 from a bank. Lyedecker soon catches his man, but problems arise when it is revealed Joe is involved in the Indian uprising, and has used the money to buy 100 Rifles for the Indians, which he plans on taking them to the Indians with Sarita Raquel Welch Leydecker gets caught up in the uprising but is <more>
determined to get his man back to the U.S. as a prisoner.Jim Brown does as well as he can in his role, but acting is not his strong suit. Raquel Welch is gorgeous with a wonderful body, but she was not much of an actress back then and only Burt Reynolds emerges the films real star "acting wise" he plays the role with a glint in his eye and he brings the laughs. Of the three co stars he is the only one who can actually act. Had his character being better scripted, then this would be one of Burt Reynolds more famous characters. As it it is he easily stole this picture.I don't understand why there isn't more love this movie. Burt Reynolds earlier western" Navajo Joe" has a cult following yet is nowhere near as well made or as enjoyable as "100 Rifles"
Exciting But Violent Spaghetti-Inspired Horse Opera (by zardoz-13)
"100 Rifles" is an adventure western set in Mexico with former pro football player Jim Brown cast as a sheriff and Burt Reynolds as a Mexican who purchased the titular number of rifles. Raquel Welch is the daughter of a revolutionary soldier who is hanged at the beginning. These three unlikely allies team up to contend with Fernando Lamas and Eric Braeden. Director Tom Gries is better known for his realistic Charlton Heston cowboy classic "Will Penny." Although "Will Penny" is a better all-around western with a largely believable plot, "100 Rifles" <more>
qualifies as an exciting, scenic western set below the border that appeared after Spaghetti westerns had popularized the Mexican revolution. Nevertheless, "100 Rifles" is a lot of fun. Reportedly, Raquel Welch and Burt Reynolds got off on the wrong foot, and the beautiful Welch hated Reynolds so much that when they co-starred again with him in "Fuzz" she had most of her scenes filmed when Reynolds was not present. Fans of Mexican revolutionary westerns will enjoy this bullet-riddled romp. When "100 Rifles" came out, interracial romances were in their infancy on the big screen. Brown and Welch share a couple of scenes together. Jerry Goldsmith's orchestral score is very atmospheric and contributes to the suspenseful tension. The advertising campaign for this outdoors film was clever. "This picture has a message—watch out." Novelist Clair Huffaker, who wrote the novel for the John Wayne western "The War Wagon," co-scripted this turn-of-the-century horse opera with Gries, based on Robert MacLeod's novel. For the record, MacLeod penned the novel that served as the basis for the Marlon Brando oater "The Appaloosa." "100 Rifles" was lensed on location in Spain.
