Shalako

( 2 )

Overview

An absolutely bare-bones, movie-only DVD, this Anchor Bay release has the widescreen version (2.35:1, non-anamorphic) on one side of the disc and a pan-and-scan version on the other, though the viewer is left to guess as to which side has which (side 1 is the cropped version). There are 18 chapter stops, including one for about 15 seconds of end titles. The audio is stock mono, with the tendency to be a bit rough on the ears -- voices, effects, and music tend to blur together at times. Viewers are fortunately ...

DVD In late-19th-century New Mexico, a hunting party of decadent European aristocrats wanders onto the reservation of some angry Apaches, and it's up to the mysterious wanderer, ... Shalako (Sean Connery), to save them from getting slaughtered. The group includes Honor Blackman (Pussy Galore in GOLDFINGER) as the sexually restless Lady Bagget and Brigette Bardot as the sharp shooting Countess Lazaar, who (of course) falls for Shalako. It's an unusual blend of wide-open Western action and European character intrigue as the decadent aristocrats sip champagne and flirt with their unwashed, treacherous cowboy guides. Veteran director Edward Dmytryk keeps the flaming arrows flying while Connery and Bardot hold attention in this weird hybrid of American Western and European art film. (Yes, Bardot has a seminude bathing scene. ) SHALAKO, based on the novel by Louis L'Amour, was filmed almost entirely outdoors amid the dark gray landscapes of Almeria, Spain, in a style undoubtedly indebted to the Sergio Leone spag Read more Show Less

The audio is stock mono, with the tendency to be a bit rough on the ears -- voices, effects, and music tend to blur together at times. Viewers are fortunately able to skip past the opening credits, which come with one of the more irritating Western theme songs in known memory. Visually, the look of the film is okay. The widescreen mastering seems to have had more attention than the cropped version, which seems quite soft and murky. The colors are good (where there is much color; the locations are mostly grey and dull) and flesh tones accurate, and the image is for the most part reasonably sharp (it softens from time to time for no apparent reason) and free of blemishes, though some speckling is evident. Overall, this edition of Shalako is, much like the movie itself -- a mediocre effort.

    How the West Was Worn Out

    "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.
