Train Robbers, The
Three Civil War veterans team up with a train robber's widow to recover a cool half-million in hidden gold. The widow (Ann-Margret), the kind who "sticks out in all the right places," wants to clear her husband's name. The three friends (John Wayne, Rod Taylor, Ben Johnson) want the $50,000 reward. But the dead man's ex-partners just want the gold - and will kill to get it.
The Train Robbers is a rollicking caper from writer/director Burt Kennedy, a specialist in Westerns with a comic touch (The Rounders, Support Your Local Sheriff). Here he sets a mood of amiable adventure among colorful characters, not stinting on the two-fisted action that's part of all the best Wayne Westerns.
