100 Rifles is the kind of Western you'd have expected someone to make in the late 1960's. One with a black US lawman, and two revolutionary Mexican Indians fighting for justice in their oppressed homeland. It would be easy to dismiss this as a politically correct western, even though it was made before the term was invented. But the cast and the production of 100 Rifles pulls it off, making a rare late 60's Western treat.

Jim Brown, recently retired football superstar, plays the US marshal with the virility and muscle that befits his status as one of the greatest, and definitely the most punishing running back in the history of the NFL. Burt Reynolds and Raquel Welch plays the two revolutionaries. Brown's character comes to Mexico chasing bank robbing Reynolds, ends up falling for Welch, and eventually helps both Reynolds and Welch with their revolutionary activities. Reynolds displays all of the vigor and charm that helped become the most popular box office star in the late seventies/early eighties, and Welch is, well Welch, oozing sex appeal and sensuality.

100 Rifles is definitely a product of the era in which it was made, but since there very few great Westerns made in the late 60's except movies like Hombre and The Wild Bunch, this is film to appreciate and treasure.

The movie takes place during a bloody time period of Mexico history... At that time, anyone coming to Mexico ought to be speaking Spanish... But Lyedecker (Jim Brown) didn't speak the language... He was a black policeman looking for a valuable man, a bank robber named Joe Herrera (Burt Reynolds), who looks Mexican but doesn't talk Mexican... Herrera is a half-breed, whose mother was a Yaqui Indian and his father was from Alabama...

General Verdugo (Fernando Lamas) is sure that the money was not spent on women or on Whisky... For him, Joe stole the $6,000 from the Citizen's Bank in Phoenix, Arizona to buy 100 rifles for his people, the Yaqui Indians...

Verdugo--a murderer and an assassin who runs the State of Sonora--have orders to get rid of the Yaquis any way he could, and he took the easy way by killing everybody... He even kidnapped Yaqui children to regain the rifles... And now he wants Lyedecker's head on a stick in the middle of the plaza for everyone to see...

Lyedecker doesn't care about nothing and nobody... He took a job that nobody else wanted... His intentions are to take Joe back for the $200 reward and a permanent job... The policeman rejected any deal in spite of all the atrocities he witnessed like executing Indians or hanging them up like a side of beef...

Steven Grimes (Dan O'Herlihy)--who runs the railroad-- doesn't want his train to be a small sacrifice to the mean general... The German military adviser Lt. Von Klemme (Eric Braeden) thinks that the Indians must be finished off as quickly as possible before more guns come through... Raquel Welch's most audacious moment comes out when the Indians attack a well-guarded train carrying troops and supplies, and she was openly showering in the flat part, under a water tower...

With a very nice score by Jerry Goldsmith, "100 Rifles" is a slam-bang action epic, with loads of explosions and gory fighting, making little sense but a lot of amusing noise...

100 Rifles is one of those movies that was made during the late sixties and combined the talents of the rising stars of the day. The script was certainly predictable and the actors rose above the material. The gorgeous Raquel Welch showed some surprising range in her role as a tough revolutionary. Burt Reynolds wisely played his character with the slight insouciance that would make him into a superstar a few years later. And mighty Jim Brown stepped into the role as a leading man and sex symbol with his controversial (for the time) interracial love scene with Welch. It's a shame he didn't choose his roles more carefully because it was pretty much downhill after this film with his departure from big budget productions (like The Dirty Dozen, Ice Station Zebra and The Split) in favor of the poorly done blacksploitation flicks that wasted his acting talent and presence. All things considered, 100 Rifles is worth a look, though. It's a period piece really, made during a time of transition in our society. It's best watched with that perspective in mind.

Although not based on one of his novels, 100 Rifles follows in the tracks of The Comancheros and Rio Conchos as another Clair Huffaker co-scripted Western that sees a lawman and a fugitive becoming unlikely allies in a plot involving rebels and a shipment of guns: obviously Huffaker was 20th Century Fox's go-to guy whenever they wanted to put a new spin on an old hit. The new spin this time is the influence of spaghetti Westerns (although the American Western had been moving south of the border since the 50s) and that rather than trying to infiltrate and defeat the rebels the heroes are trying to get the guns to them - in this case Yaqui Indians - to help them overthrow the government in the form of Fernando Lamas' sadistic governor who wants an Indian hanging from every telegraph pole. Instead of John Wayne, Stuart Whitman or Richard Boone, this throws in a more up-and-coming trio of Jim Brown, Racquel Welch and Burt Reynolds. Just to spice things up further, it even throws in an inter-racial love affair that caused a bit of a stir at the time.

That's about it for novelty, though. Although Tom Gries direction is more than decent and even has one impressive prolonged take of the government troops fortifying a town, this is more a decently crafted Saturday night action movie than anything more memorable and ambitious.
