Waterhole #3

Overview

"A rootin', tootin', but sincere picture" was the advertising tag for the comedy western Waterhole No. 3. James Coburn plays the likeably amoral hero, who'll go to any lengths to get his mitts on a treasure map. Like his principal rival, renegade confederate cavalryman Claude Akins, Coburn knows that a fortune in gold bullion is hidden near a desert waterhole; the trick is finding the damned thing.

Overview

"A rootin', tootin', but sincere picture" was the advertising tag for the comedy western Waterhole No. 3. James Coburn plays the likeably amoral hero, who'll go to any lengths to get his mitts on a treasure map. Like his principal rival, renegade confederate cavalryman Claude Akins, Coburn knows that a fortune in gold bullion is hidden near a desert waterhole; the trick is finding the damned thing. Along the way, Coburn humiliates redneck sheriff Carroll O'Connor and "has his way" with O'Connor's far from unwilling daughter Maggie Blye. When Blye, cast aside by Coburn in favor of his treasure quest, screams rape, Coburn replies that his only crime is "assault with a friendly weapon." Just try to get that bit past an audience in 1996. Supervised by Blake Edwards, Waterhole No. 3 is agreeably irreverent, though a little editing here and there wouldn't have hurt.

    The code of the West may NEVER have been like this!

    An outrageous winner take all romp in the search for stolen Army gold. James Coburn is Lewton Cole, gambler/conman who because of an accusation of cheating at cards kills the owner of a bill with a map on it. This sets off the farcical leap-frog effort to recover the gold at Waterhole #3. Carroll O'Connor plays the gruff and grungy sheriff whom Cole first offends then befriends during the search. Claude Akins is the Army sergeant who dreams of retiring with the stolen gold--IF he can just get it back. Maggie (Margaret) Blye plays the sheriff's daughter, the 'victim' of Cole's self-described ''assault with a friendly weapon.'' Roger Miller sings a sort of play by play all during the movie, which is really a VERY good part of the film. Joan Blondell plays the local 'hospitality lady' (that's 'madam' in the vernacular...). A western with a very 60's frame of mind. Watch it, you'll like it!
