Editorial Reviews

In WATERHOLE #3, an outlaw and a reluctant hostage join together with a disgruntled army officer to carry out a daring gold robbery. Meanwhile, back in town, the sheriff has his mind on a gambler who's stolen a prize-winning horse and is just about to steal the heart of the lawman's daughter, too.

This movie is one to put on your list. A comedy of the old west where greed, corruption and lawlessness run rampant! James Coburn who is out to get whatever he can including a maiden's virtues is fantastic in this part. Carrol O'Connor as a wayward sheriff who's more concern for his pocket rather than the law is great as well as Bruce Dern who's at his typical not quite all their best! Roger Miller's music throughout this morality play gone wrong makes this film. This needs to be on DVD!

Anything I could say has pretty much already been said. This is a hidden treasure. Please please, whoever has the authority to do so, please put this out in a quality DVD edition. I really can't understand why it already isn't. Sadly, James Coburn isn't around anymore to do an audio commentary. I would really like to hear from all the principals what it was like to make this movie.

James Coburn plays a stereotypical bad guy in this movie about a western gold robbery. Challenged in a bar to a gunfight at sundown, he walks out into the street but instead of the classical walk toward the other gunfighter, he walks around to the other side of his horse, takes the rifle out of the scabbard, sites across the saddle and shoots the gunfighter from a distance. From the body of the victim, he takes a map to stolen gold and the fun begins. The movie is actually set in a lighthearted vein, with occasional crosses into the dark side. Coburn wants the sheriff's horse, so he locks the sheriff into his own jail with no clothes and proceeds to the sheriff's place to steal the horse. This movie never heard of politically correct. The sheriff wants the gold as much as Coburn and of course there is the sheriff's daughter, who is no sure what she wants. In the background, the soundtrack has a song which talks about the "code of the west" even as every body in the movie violates it. I gave the movie 4 stars not 5, because it is not one of the greats, the plot is kind of shallow and the acting a little wooden at times, but it is a fun show.

There is a scene where the con-man (James Coburn) does the card version of the shell game to perfection just before going out to do a gunfight. He throws off the scene in such a manner that you can't help but laugh. The gunfight is classic as well. Afterwards, he obtains information concerning a treasure that is placed in the vicinity of waterhole number 3. By the time he gets to the town on the way to the waterholes, he needs a new horse. So he talks to the Sheriff and his Deputy (Caroll O'Connor and Bruce Dern) about the location of a good horse. It just happens that the best horse is the Sheriff's and is not for sale. The con-man, not to be slowed down at all, locks the Sheriff and the Deputy in their own jail and gives them an incentive to keep quite about it. When he gets caught in the barn with the horse (and his pants around his ankles) by the Sheriff's daughter (Margaret Blye), he takes a little time to get to know her. The Sheriff upon finding that his horse is gone is heartbroken, but learns from his daughter that the con-man has gone into the desert. For their own reasons, both the Sheriff and his daughter are intent on tracking the con-man down. General mayhem ensues and when the dust settles, the con-man is left with having to make a decision about his priorities. Once the decision is made and he acts on it, the only thing left is to roll the credits, stop the film and realize that you have enjoyed the roller coaster ride for the last couple of hours (no heavy lifting required). Honorable mention goes to Joan Blondell, Claude Aikens and James Whitmore for fun moments in the film as well. Over all, it's a well paced, fun romp.Waterhole #3

I heard the Roger Miller soundtrack first and then I HAD to see the movie! It didn't dissapoint. James Coburn, Carol O'Connor, stolen gold, Hilb the "frontier delinquent" (Roger Miller's term), a wronged damsel, rank discrimination ("arrest the foreigner") and the not quite good girl winning it all in the end. Want more? How about James Coburn called out into the street for a gunfight - which he wins by shooting his challenger with the challenger's own rifle, from behind the challenger's own horse?

James Coburn is a most likable rascal in a movie where everyone seems to be trying to steal from someone. There are plenty of laughs in this spoof, but the behaviors may not be that far from reality as morality takes a back seat to greed. Carroll O'Connor is great as an amoral sheriff and Margaret Blye is a delight to watch as his often-wronged daughter. The good supporting cast includes Claude Akins, Bruce Dern, James Whitmore, and Joan Blondell. Lightweight fare, but great fun.
