First is Robert Mitchum's performance as the sleepy-eyed priest who mows 'em down Django-fashion with a hidden machine gun. He scoffs the Lord, swears, drinks whiskey, smokes cigars and kills. Back then, I thought it just a ruse, now, I'm not too sure. Is he taking this "Fatherhood" seriously, or is it all just part of the scam? Certainly one of Mitchum's best roles, though not nearly as great as his other heavenly outing in NIGHT OF THE HUNTER. Still, food for thought.
Secondly, Victor Buono finally gets to play a somewhat good-guy, or at least be on Mitchum's side. He's a likable lout in the George Sanders fashion, a con man who is always looking out for himself, yet leads a courageous attack on the enemy stronghold, driving a battering-ram car while machine-gunning the fodder that stands in his way. He actually has voice-over thoughts to justify his actions.
And thirdly, we get some social comment throughout the film on third-world oppression. Executions are abundant and viewed with disgust. The masses are left with no meaning to life..., that is until Mitchum rebuilds the church and gives strength, support and dignity to the downtrodden, then defends it all with a machine gun.
Rita Hayworth is wasted as the mother of Frank Langella, who likes to kill priests.Read more ›

For the era the movie was well done. It is a little choppy by today's standards. However, it is still fun to watch.Published on March 31, 2014 by Gary K. Kangas
