    Description: Sean Connery and Brigitte Bardot display a likeable, low-key camaderie as an indian scout and a titled Frenchwoman who's a lot faster on the uptake than most of her companions--crude sex appeal gives way to something more realistic and appealing. Bardot forgoes pouting and wriggling and is all the more likeable for it (1968 was also the year of her excellent cameo in the "William Wilson" segment of LES HISTOIRES EXTRAORDINAIRE, yet another renunciation of her sex-kitten persona). Stephen Boyd and Honor Blackman are equally good as a predatory criminal and the English noblewoman who runs off with him from a mixture of craven calculation and sheer boredom--Boyd is flat-out sinister yet also charming, and Blackman is a vivid portrait of a woman stifled by her circumstances yet also quite willing to exploit the advantages of those circumstances.

    Based on the novel by Louis L'Amour, Shalako is a handsome, rousing western that delivers nonstop thrills with both barrels blazing. Gutsy, gunslinging Shalako (Connery) is a loner who looks out for number one, until he finds himself rescuingand falling fora beautiful countess (Bardot) under attack by Apache Indians. But when Shalako discovers that the countess is part of a European hunting party that refuses to be led to safety, he must summon all his courage to fight the Apache and save the woman he loves or die trying.
