"Shalako" begins with a crawl from original novelist author Louis L'Amour and that should tell you what's wrong from the start. There is much speechifying during the film but little dramatic dialogue, and this western comes off as more a poor civics lesson than a rousing adventure. The cast is a curious international mix featuring Sean Connery, Peter Van Eyck, Honor Blackman, Jack Hawkins and Woody Strode (as Chato??!). Stephen Boyd fares best as an untrustworthy hunting party scout, and 60's sex kitten Brigitte Bardot comes off the strangest; in fact, Ms. Bardot's seemingly endless supply of pancake make-up through a wilderness trek provides the film it's only (unintentional) comic relief. The dramatic highlight, an early morning Apache attack, comes far too late and far too early in the film to propel any kind of absorbing dramatic arc. Instead we are left with indifferent direction by Edward Dmytryk, and far too much free time to notice that both Connery and Blackman were far more interesting in "Goldfinger" than in this obvious career step-down. The DVD print is grainy, but this reflects the original release print.
