| a bit of fun from Burt
Sam Whiskey (Burt Reynolds) is a roguish cad in the Old West. Seductive Laura Breckenridge (Angie Dickinson) recruits him to retrieve a sunken treasure. In turn, he recruits blacksmith Jed Hooker (Ossie Davis) and gunsmith O. W. Bandy (Clint Walker) to do some diving.

It's a nice enough western. There are some nice light laughs. There are some fun enough characters. Burt Reynolds is the embodiment of this character. This is a group of fun actors doing fun characters. I don't really understand why the trio doesn't take the gold and run. So the second half isn't as compelling since they aren't being reasonable. One would have to believe that Sam is completely smitten and whipped. One would also have to believe that the other two are such good buddies that they would support him no matter what. All of that is too unlikely. That's if one ignores some other unreasonable elements. Ignoring all that, this is still some light fun without much harm.
