| Boring And Stiff As A Board
Director Albert Band co-wrote and produced a few good spaghetti westerns in the sixties. In the seventies he landed back on American shores with a thud in this misfire about turn of the century housewife Ronnee Blakeley, her long suffering crippled husband Dean Stockwell, and their old friend Scott Glenn, who runs guns for Pancho Villa, played by country singer Freddy Fender.

A decent cast tries hard but leaden pacing and a general lack of interesting developments sink this. In fact, the film goes on for nearly an hour, dwelling on Blakeley and Stockwell's dull domestic life, before anything even resembling a plot is hatched.

Once Pancho Villa enters the picture, you get to see just how embarrassingly naive Stockwell and Blakeley's characters are.

Cinematographer Daniel Pearl and Art Director Robert A. Burns were more successful a few years earlier in another regionally made film, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre!
