Shalako

There's an engaging premise to this British Western shot in Spain, with a group of European aristocrats on safari in the wild west (complete with chilled wine and sterling silver), looking for big game but finding warlike Apaches. But its notions of humour (Eric Sykes as an imperturbable butler) don't go too well with Dmytryk's attempts to ape the spaghetti Western style, and it very quickly goes downhill.
