BLAXPLOITATION MEXPLOITATION HYBRID WESTERN '100 RIFLES'

Title: 100 RIFLES Year: 1969 Rating: **1/2

Word has it Burt Reynolds and  Raquel Welch couldn't stand each other on the set of Tom Gries' grungy Neo-Western 100 RIFLES where she was famous and he... still just a climber... already had the attitude of a big star... 

Robustly playing the half-Indian bank robber that black lawman Jim Brown, more of a bounty hunter in nature, wants to take from Indian-massacring Mexican authorities back to America...

Burt's bank score bought the titular guns for his people, and the broad plot-line has Welch's melodramatic Indian beauty joining the cause where Reynolds doesn't get to fully realize the scoundrel-confidence built into his character early on, from slapping sultry hooker Soledad Miranda to igniting what would soon to be his signature chortle... 

Meanwhile ex football hero Brown along with the intensely gorgeous Welch seem like tagalongs to what could've been a tight Reynolds vehicle if only director Gries realized the potential, because, in the case of 100 RIFLES, three's a crowd and even two gets stuffy.
