Synopsis


Two Mules for Sister Sara
Director Budd Boetticher wrote the story upon which this comic Western was based. Clint Eastwood stars as Hogan, a tough cowboy who rescues a woman, Sara (Shirley Maclaine) as she's about to be attacked by a trio of rapists. Surprised to learn that his new traveling companion is a nun, Hogan agrees to escort her to a camp occupied by anti-French revolutionaries. It turns out that neither of this pair is what they claim to be: Hogan is to scout out a French military garrison for a future attack, while Sara is actually a prostitute masquerading as a nun. After Hogan spies Sara smoking cigars and drinking whiskey, he begins to figure out she's not a bride of Christ, and the two team up with the Juaristas to destroy the French fortifications. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    "Two Mules for Sister Sara" brings together two Hollywood icons--Clint Eastwood and Shriley MacLaine in an unusual western that is, essentially, "The African Queen" in the old west. Eastwood plays Hogan a drifter who saves Sister Sara (MacLaine)from being attacked by outlaws.In the process the duo become embroiled in the Mexican fight against the French. It seems that Sara has something that the French want as they continue to pursue her and Hogan. Directed by Don Siegel with a marvelous score by Ennio Morricone "Two Mules for Sister Sara" marked Eastwood's second American western since becoming a star with the Sergio Leone films. Although the script has its flaws, "Two Mules" largely works because of the performances (particularly Eastwood who introduces a bit more of a comedic element to his performance here), Siegel's sharp direction and the score. The film features some beautiful photography. The blu-ray looks exceptionally good with a crisp, sharp presentation that doesn't relay on edge enhancement to sharpen the image. Detail is strong throughout. This is the same transfer that was released last year in the UK so if you have that version, there isn't any improvements or differences here to note. The film receives a nice looking transfer that is largely free of any sort of blemishes. The audio sounds quite nice with a good mono 2.0 presentation of the original soundtrack that is faithful to the intent of the filmmakers. Dialog is clear for the most part and subtitles are included. There's some depth to the mono presentation here as well. Sadly we don't get any special features. Given the stature of Eastwood and MacLaine one would expect that. Heck, I would expect it for director Don Siegel since he's a well regarded filmmaker who made a number of ( "Dirty Harry")and was Eastwood's mentor as a director. We get a vintage trailer and that's all/. "Two Mules for Sister Sara" is an entertaining western. I loved it as a kid and continue to enjoy it today (although I grew up on the pan and scan version this is the version I learned to appreciated when I later saw it at a revival house).

    As far as Eastwood's post Spaghetti movies, he's rarely been in better form than this.This film is a nice change of pace for a Clint Eastwood Western.Well directed, well paced, good story, good acting and it stars a nun and a cowboy.Eastwood as always is cool and a great screen presence, and MacClaine is slightly unrecognisable but a good co-star.
