- movie Description
Pancho Villa, also known as Vendetta, takes a comical look at the Mexican revolutionary in this tale of how Villa invaded the United States, very loosely based on real historical events. Pancho Villa (Telly Savalas) sends his American sidekick Scotty (Clint Walker) over the border to spend $30,000 on guns for the revolutionaries. Scotty runs into his estranged wife, Flo (Anne Francis), but must quickly hightail it back over the order when he is double-crossed on the deal. An irate Villa vows revenge when he realizes he has lost both the money and the guns and decides to invade Columbus, New Mexico. Villa and Scotty gather together a gang, and take over the town. Meanwhile, the slightly unhinged Colonel Wilcox (Chuck Connors), the commanding officer of the nearby US Calvary fort, tears apart the mess hall in search of a single fly. Only then, does the Colonel lead his troops to defend the United States. Director Eugenio Mart''n combines gun fights and broad comedy for this 1972 historical romp.moreless
