Shalako

It’s a Western! With Eric Sykes in! It’s not often you get to type that sentence, worse luck, but here he is starring alongside Sean Connery, himself continuing his daft-name motif as a character called Moses Zebulon Shalako Carlin, a tracker out to help a party of paleface types in danger from a Native American uprising. This was Sean’s first film after his last Bond ‘proper’, You Only Live Twice, and it was a couple of years until he got back on track with The Anderson Tapes. Then, of course, he made Zardoz. There’s no helping some people. Brigitte ‘cats’ Bardot and Jack Hawkins hide in the desert with them.
