Synopsis


Hannie Caulder
It's hard to discern the filmmakers' true point of view on Hannie Caulder. On one hand, you've got the heavily somber story of Raquel Welch's efforts to exact vengeance on the men who raped her and killed her husband. On the other hand, you've got the leisurely-paced, lightly amusing sequences in which saddle-tramp Robert Culp tries to teach Welch how to be a gunslinger in her own right. And on the third hand (and who's got one of those?), you are offered the goofy Three-Stooges-like antics of the principle villains: Ernest Borgnine, Strother Martin and Jack Elam. This British-financed western features one-time sexpot Diana Dors as a zoftic madam and an uncredited Stephen Boyd as an ineffectual preacher. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Forget about Kill Bill and The Quick and the Dead for a minute and experience where this all started. Hannie Caulder is the OG female gunslinger on a path to revenge. Rachel Welch kills it (literally), in one of her (the) most iconic female roles roles of all time.

    I consider this movie a spaghetti western. And for that matter one of the better spaghetti's westerns out there. It had just about everything in it and the cast was pretty good.

    Bought this for my mother who had an old VHS copy. She was thrilled to get it and especially on blu-ray. A tale of retribution starring the amazing Raquel Welch!
