I think this one of Eastwoods best westerns.  Tough, violent and just a good all around cowboy flick.

Another early gem from Clint.Don Siegel directing, Ennio Morricone scoring and Shirley Maclaine costarring,well in fact Clint was the costar,Shirley had top billing.
Just listen to the opening title theme, which imitates Sister's Sara's braying mule
That little bit of music appears quite a lot during the film and I loved it.
The big finale battle at the fort was brilliant,if a little gory especially for 1969 audiences.
Apart from the two stars there's no other well known actors in the cast but that doesn't diminish the film one bit.

This movie is one of my favorite Clint Westerns.. mainly because it was a good story, and had some GREAT lines by Clint

"Raise your eyes to heaven sister. [looks at buzzards] Are they or are they NOT God's creatures... why would you want to rob them of all this convienant nourishment?" [points at dead rapists]

"Sister! you wanna bless them, you bless them DRY!"

Who believed she was anything but a true nun, especially when she ran down to bless the graves with water and praying at the little shrine ? ^-^

She had me convinced all the way just like Hogan.
Very well played by Shirley.  O0

I think I started to suspect she wasn't a real nun in the scene with the rattle snake.    It is a shame the blurb on the DVD cover tells you she is not a nun.  That, I think, spoils the movie if you are seeing it for the first time. :(

  Someone once asked Maclaine what she thought of Eastwood and her response was.." I love Clint.........even if he is a Republican."...

Newbie here. Iím 46, from the UK and have only recently discovered Clint Eastwood westerns (sorry!).

Am watching this film for the first time today, recorded off 5spike, and just wanted to ask if the arrow removal scene had been edited out? The film jumps from the nun preparing to push the arrow out to Clint waking up hours later (without the arrow). I get the feeling that somethingís been edited out. Anyone able to help?

Looking forward to reading the rest of the Clint Eastwood Westerns section :)

Hi Paul,

Actually, it sounds like it was edited out. In the film, we see Sister Sara hit the arrow through with a rock. It's not gory at all, so no idea why it was edited out for general TV audiences.

I agree with Matt. I just re-watched that scene. You see Hogan light the powder in the groove Sara has cut in the arrow, while at the same time she strikes the knife, held against the arrow, with Hogan's gun (not a rock, sorry, Matt). He slumps over, groaning, and she goes around behind him and pulls the arrow out. The arrow is covered in blood, but that's all the gore you see. Hogan collapses, and Sara takes a slug of his whiskey. End of scene. The next thing we see is Sara coming up with the animals, some time later, and trying to rouse him so he can blow up the French train.

You can watch the unedited version for free on Tubi, if you don't have the DVD:

Thanks both! And thanks for the link, I will check it out shortly - judging by the descriptions above it sounds like someone has taken A hatchet to the film for the tv version.
