This is one of those films I saw once on late night TV nearly forty years ago, so I have no idea how it holds up. But I remember that I liked it quite a bit at the time. Of course, I like nearly everything with Richard Boone in it, and it's an offbeat Western, something else that appeals to me. Leslie Caron is the nun who survives an Indian attack on a wagon train, and Boone is the grizzled old gunfighter who rescues her and tries to get her safely back to civilization. It's kind of a romance and kind of a Spaghetti Western (although it was filmed in Israel, if I recall correctly). The photography is nice, the ending is poignant, and the decidedly non-Western-sounding theme song (which was nominated for an Academy Award) was a staple on easy listening radio stations for a number of years. If any of you have seen this in recent years, I'd love to know what you think of it.
