100 Rifles ★★ 1969 (R)

Native American bank robber and Black American lawman join up with a female Mexican revolutionary to help save the Mexican Indians from annihilation by a despotic military governor. What it lacks in political correctness it makes up for in fits of action. Although quite racy in its day for its interracial sex sizzle of Brown and Rachel, it's tame and overblown by today's standards. 110m/C VHS, DVD . Jim Brown, Raquel Welch, Burt Reynolds, Fernando Lamas; D: Tom Gries; M: Jerry Goldsmith.
