Shalako, a British western film, follows a band of affluent Europeans as they make their way through an Apache reservation, led by their guide Bosky Fulton (Steven Boyd). They find themselves in dangerous and hostile territory, and it is up to a tracker, Shalako (Sean Connery), to rescue them after they fell prey to an assault by Native Americans. The attack is led by an Apache named Chato (Woody Strode). The film is set in the late 1800s in New Mexico. Some of the individuals in the group include Lady Julia Dagget (Honor Blackman), Sir Charles Dagget (Jack Hawkins) and Countess Irina Lazaar (Brigitte Bardot), who begins to fall for Shalako after he rescues the group from a most certain demise. Shalako is a robust western that features a plethora of action-packed scenes and riveting dialogue. The film is based off a novel, written by Louis L'Amour, and the movie was directed by Edward Dmytryk.
