3.0 out of 5 stars Good movie, bad DVD release May 22, 2009
Catlow is directed by Sam Wanamaker, and stars Richard Crenna (Rambo Series), Yul Brynner (The Ten Commandments (1956)), and Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek - The Original Series.) The film's musical score is composed by Roy Budd, and the film is based on the novel of the same name by Louis L'Amour.

Catlow is a Western, featuring a marshal (Crenna) determined to bring Catlow (Brynner), a cattle rustler he was once acquainted with in the Civil War, to justice, after turning to a life of crime. His past feelings of friendship and camaraderie, and legalities prevent him from killing his old acquaintance in cold blood, so he stands determined to take him in for a fair trial. Unfortunately, not everyone wants to take the criminal in alive. A ruthless bounty hunter (Nimoy) is hot on his trail as well. Now Catlow is wanted by at least two men - one who wants him alive, and one who wants him dead. And with Catlow's deadly gun skills and a massive posse of criminals, it won't be easy for anyone hunting him to succeed.

Catlow is a fairly obscure Western that never rode off into classic status. Two weeks ago, I didn't even know the film existed. And despite its relatively-obscure status, it's not a bad film. This is no classic, but it's a movie any fan of Westerns should see once.

The best thing about this movie is its three leading men - Richard Crenna (Colonel Trautman from the Rambo movies) as the marshal, Yul Brynner (Ramses in the 1956 version of The Ten Commandments) as the title outlaw, and Leonard Nimoy (Spock from the original Star Trek series) as a bounty hunter out to kill the title character. These actors are clearly having fun with their roles, and playing them very well. A supporting cast of unknowns actually plays all their parts quite well, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Leonard Nimoy Naked? September 11, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Catlow is a good western about the friendship between two men; Bijah Catlow(Yul Brynner)and Ben Cowan(Richard Crenna). Based on the novel by Louis L'Amour, Catlow tells the story of Cowan's pursuit of his childhood friend Bijah Catlow. Brynner as Catlow is completely believable as the amiable outlaw that L'Amour wrote about. Good action sequences and quick dialogue. Sometimes a little confusing if you haven't read the book, which is better than the movie. Watch out for a bizarre and unnecessary Leonard Nimoy butt scene! However Nimoy plays a decent gunman although he has very few lines.

4.0 out of 5 stars Herding Catlow May 1, 2010
An honest lawman and a hired gun are both on the hunt for the charming (?) cattle rustler they call Catlow in this amiable, almost casual 70s Western. Like other films adapted from L'Amour novels, this one has a solid, sturdy plot. The protagonist here is dependable, stalwart Richard Crenna and Leonard Nimoy has a VanCleef-like presence as the bad-guy, he's a little under-used (if over-exposed). Brynner in the lead grins up a storm and looks somewhat amusing, done up in his gleaming, spotless blue denim. Daliah Lavi is the lusty female lead.

The film was directed by American blacklistee actor Sam Wanamaker and the second unit was headed by John Glen who also tightly edits some broadly comic set-pieces.

2.0 out of 5 stars Uh...I'll pass December 14, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love westerns, Yul Brynner, Richard Crenna, Leonard Nimoy, and Louis l'Amour, but I do no like this western. I saw it when it came out in the early 70's and I ran across this DVD so I bought it to see i how it held up over time. The answer is NOT VERY WELL!. I read L'Amour's book Catlow and it was a nice book. Brynner was no stranger to westerns and had done some very good ones. Crenna had done westerns too and had done one of L'Amour's stories, A MAN CALLED NOON. So the stars and the writer were together to do something great in westerns. Somewhere along the way things went wrong.

Let's started at the beginning,the music is terrible. It sounds too modern for a western. It sounds like the music of the 70's, sort of hip like. The movie wants to be light, happy, and funny. There is quite a bit of banter between Brynner and Crenna which is to show us that they are friends and are cute. It doesn't play well with the shootings and the bodies getting shot full of arrows.

This may sound funny but Brynner's hat is wrong and jarring. It is a straw hat much like a wanta be cowboy would wear. The women are familiar faces of the time and are asked to be Mexican. One of them come off like stereo typical Mexican cartoon. The other doesn't have much to do except dance and ride a horse. Nemoy has a totally useless nude scene where he fights Brynner. His character has the worst lines in the whole show. The ending is supposed to be cute and charming but is dumb. One more thing the film looks like it was filmed for tv, the colors are not rich looking.

The Italian westerns were the rage for awhile and when this came out they were winding down with more dark images and stories. That made this western look lost and floundering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Semi-Classic Excellent Print July 5, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This new release from Warners is exceptional. Granted the trailer is the only special feature, but having never seen the trailer, it was a welcome addition to this print. I love the music in Catlow and Sam Wanamaker does a fine job of directing. Yul Brynner is at his most animated and Leonard Nimoy plays the bad guy exceptionaly well. Richard Crenna is also a standout and Jeff Corey is perfectly cast.

A classical western which I first watched in the 1970's while I was still at varsity. It has a convincing plot and not just shooting in every encounter with the villain.

Yul Brynner actually made westerns. Sometimes this is hard to reckon.
