Don Siegel directs Clint Eastwood, Shirley MacLaine and Manolo Fábregas in this comedy western where a mercenary escorts a nun south of the border.
The simple pleasure of a genre mash-up getting it all right. The romance convinces as Eastwood and MacLaine have a lovely back and forth with each other. An unlikely screen pairing that pays off finely. The comedy is well timed and smart. The cowboy action can hold its head up proudly among Clint’s more straight affairs. If you come for any strand you’ll be satisfied, if you are a fan of all three then you’ll have a whale of a time.
