      Here's an example of the book of the movie. This copy has seen better days, but being a Duke movie novelization....it was well read. Enjoy!

      It's one of the Movies I liked as Child (also because of Ann-Marget) but nowadays I only can wonder. It's nice to see Ben Johnson and Rod Taylor as Duke's Buddies. Never cared who the other two were. Ann-Marget looks fantastic (clean and washed without any dirt) the whole movie and I don't know how this is possible with all the dust and the desert scenes. The role of Ricardo Montalban is more like a cameo. The shootout in the desert is one of the worst I've ever seen. Not to forget the silly scene with the mule. Interesting for me I always can remember the twist at the end. It's makes the movie more fun but in a way Duke and his friends are looking like a bunch of old losers who were stupid enough to help a beautiful young woman who betrayed them.

      I agree with one of the posts above that Duke's line about the baby is one of the best of the movie. The photography of the landscapes are great no doubt about it but I expected to see more remarkable Scenes with Duke. A mediocre Movie and one of them I wished John Wayne hadn't done.:wink:

      I am glad he made it because it's one of his most enjoyable films. And one of my favorites

      I liked Dominic Frontiere's score although it was a bit repetitive.

      I personally thought it was great and wish it was on CD.

      It's just my opinion but yes the Music was quite good.
      For me Brannigan is a much more enjoyable movie. :teeth_smile:

      I know how to rip audio from the DVD, but I have yet to come across a program that can separate music from dialogue. What software are you talking about?
