This is a William Wellmann's tour de force!In spite of the conventional
macho Taylor,everything rings true ,this film has a smell of
authenticity¨.Performances are so good (all the actors and mainly
actresses) and nobody overacts .Sometimes it looks like a Russian
movie,where the masses are the main hero.The fact that outside of
English,THREE other languages are used (Italian,French and Japanese)
shows Wellmann's respect for his audience.It's something to hear Denise
Darcel sing "auprès de ma blonde " -a song from the seventeenth
century- in the middle of the desert !
Some sequences are absolutely admirable ,I will mention three of them:
-the "recruitment" , the two women who hit the bull's-eyes (here a
sheriff's eyes on a poster),the Italian family who registers without
knowing what terrible fate lies in store for them (if they made a
remake,I wonder what the politically correct world of 2004 would make
of the little boy)
-After the attack,the women ,like in an army tell all the names of the
dead.An echo adds to the poignancy of the situation.
-And last but not least,the survivors,who are still women,show their
coquetterie and demand new clothes to meet their men.
Actually,it's the whole film which is in turn tragic,funny ,poetic,and
wonderful.The gauche attitude of the men when they meet their future
wives is a delight.
SPOILER:The key to the film is the birth of a child ,under the
blistering sun of the desert;after the awful death of the little
Italian boy,it gives hope back to the women and (to the audience).It' s
the promise for them all that new children will soon be born and carry
on their mammoth task.
A Russian western describes this remarkable work.
NB:Although French,Denise Darcel never made a movie in her native
