| Bill's Dirty Half A Dozen
The Revengers, a western that is a combination of The Searchers and The Dirty Dozen is known primarily for being Susan Hayward's farewell big screen performance. And it gives her a reunion with William Holden who co-starred in 1940 with her in Those Were The Days back when they were both young Paramount contract players.

Holden plays a rancher with a nice family whose home is attacked by the Comanches who were riding with some white men as well. It's those white Comancheros that Holden is after. But he can hardly take them alone. What he does is go to a Mexican prison that rents out convict labor and hires six of them. His dirty half a dozen are Ernest Borgnine, Woody Strode, Jorge Luke, Roger Hanin, Reinhard Kolldehoff, and Jorge Martinez DeHoyos.

Of course the highlight of the film are Holden's scenes with Hayward who plays a nurse practitioner in a frontier town who treats Holden after he's been shot. The two of them have such an easy chemistry they are a pleasure to watch. Hayward would make one more made for television film after The Revengers.

The final battle scene with the Holden group and some cavalry against the Comanches is nicely staged. Action fans should be pleased with The Revengers and the attraction of Susan Hayward is always welcome.
