The Great Scout and Cathouse Thursday is a great western comedy about Lee Marvin and his buddies getting their money back from a former gold mining partner. Marvins Harvard educated, half-Indian friend Joe Knox, is hilarious with his plan to get back at the white man by kidnapping seven prostitutes from the police and infecting them with the Clap. The movie is entertaining from start to finish. If you like The Cheyenne Social Club or Paint Your Wagon you will like this movie.

Cool Lee Marvin plays the Great Scout. Cool Oliver Reed plays Joe Knox, a drunken half-breed(!). Cool Strother Martin plays Billy, one of his patented prairie trash characters. This should have been a totally cool enterprise. RIGHT. Well, semi-cool. All the principal players deliver the proverbial goodies. The script is where the film falls a tad short. Where screenwriter Richard Shapiro should have been delivering belly whompers he for the most part gently tickles the funny bone. The scene where Joe goes for treatment of his social disease is a hoot, though. Instead of being on the level of "Blazing Saddles" and "Destry Rides Again" it's probably more akin to "Cat Ballou." The film is in it's way an offbeat ribald Western exercise. Instead of hitting a homerun I'd give the film a sliding triple.

Fully remastered and much better than the VHS! This movie was made back in the day when raunchiness was still allowed without question, so there are some scenes that weren't in the VHS version.

The colors are great and the soundtrack has been perfected. Rollicking good fun in an all-star cast of Classic Actors, including Oliver Stone in one of his strangest performances.

A must-have for western comedy fans.

Truly, this is one of the funniest movies I've seen. Laugh out loud belly laughs! Casting was perfect, but Oliver Reed steals the show. Who would imagine him as an Indian but a great casting director. This is not a western about the Old West. It takes place in 1908 Colorado during the Presidential campaign of Howard Taft. Horses mingle with the early automobiles. Lee Marvin (The Great Scout) and Oliver Reed (Joe Knox) pull off a sting operation against a previous partner who scammed them out of a lot of money. But this is secondary to the relationship that develops among the group of "stingers" This movie is definitely not for the politically correct--only for those with a sense of humor. I miss 1976, the year this movie was made.

The Great Scout and Cathouse Thursday is a very funny western comedy starring Lee Marvin as the Great Scout, Oliver Reed as Joe Knox (his half-breed Indian partner), and Kay Lenz as Thursday - a young prostitute running away from Sylvia Miles' house of ill repute. The basic plot is Marvin and Reed trying to recover money stolen from them by Jack Colby (Robert Culp) with Thursday tagging along. I give the film 4 stars for sheer entertainment value.

The DVD itself (MGM Limited Edition Collection) is an excellent, although bare-bones (the only menu option is "play") DVD in high-quality widescreen video. Sharp picture, good colors, and no "artifacts" noticed - filling the 1.78:1 widescreen TV screen.

Excellent movie. Made when people had taste, talent, comedic sense and didn't have to curse to make people laugh. This is a feel good movie when their just isn't any chance what so ever your going to find anything to watch on Pay-per-View because you've been look for two months and they just cant make a good movie without doing a remake of something and screw that up but you watch because the special affects are the only thing worth watching. Their, I said it in one long breath. None the less, They use to have good writers and actors back in the day. I just wish they could make movies like that today. They have made some but for the most part, they seem to have lost the talent.

When you put Lee Marvin, Oliver Reed, and Strother Martin on screen together for long stretches, you know it's going to be fun, even though this isn't the best work from Marvin or Martin. Reed was superb, stole the show. Kay Lenz was in her beautiful prime at the time, pity she wasn't a better actress, she could have become a star. Robert Culp makes a very satisfying villainous dandy, good casting there. The plot is quite serviceable and coherent, pacing good, photography gorgeous, action sequences brisk by the standards of the time. Recommended for when you're in the mood for an oldie but goodie that won't put stress on your emotions.

I saw this movie when I was young and I thought it was one of the funniest movie's I seen in my life, next to the movie It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World. I did not see it anywhere for years, no store did not have it. That is why I love Amazon you can now find those movies that are hard to find, thanks I had no problem with the DVD.
