A witty and slightly whimsical Western, which teams MacLaine - as a whore playing at being a nun - with the ever-chivalrous Eastwood as the man who steps in and prevents a three-way desert rape by drunken bandits. They go on to become involved with the Mexican revolutionary movement, with Eastwood's respect for her chastity becoming increasingly strained and her true profession coming in handy for infiltrating an enemy fort. Siegel devotees will find much to enjoy in the languid but not unexciting story by
(who was originally to direct himself).
