Drama / Western (1961) 132 minutes ~ Color

Bogarde plays man-in-black gunslinger Anacleto, John Mills plays the determined priest Father Keogh who’d like to save his soul in this curiously compelling psychological western, billed as ‘A New and Powerfully Different Kind of Motion Picture Story.’ It’s that indeed, with Bogarde playing it camp in his tight black leather trousers, and John Mills as the priest with whom he is locked into a battle of wills.
