The Comancheros is the 1961 western classic featuring everyone's favorite cowboy, The Duke, and directed by no less than Michael Curtiz (Casablanca, Mystery of the Wax Museum). The action unfolds in Louisiana when Paul Regret (Stuart Whitman, Eaten Alive) guns down an opponent in a duel. Regret observes ruefully that had his opponent not moved, he would have only have winged him. Since the dead man was related to a judge, one of the dueling referees assures Regret that he will swing from the gallows after he surrenders to the law. Regret clears out of Louisiana and boards a riverboat. A beautiful young woman, Pilar Graile (Ian Balin, Charro), pursues Regret. They dance and retire to her bedroom for a couple of days. The riverboat docks in Galveston, and Regret awakens to find himself handcuffed and under arrest. Texas Ranger Captain Jake Cutter (John Wayne, The Searchers, Rio Bravo) points out that the state of Louisiana wants to extradite Regret and they begin their on-again, off-again journey. They ride across a ranch that the Indians have attacked and massacred all the occupants. Cutter and Regret bury the family and Cutter turns his back for a moment on Regret and the gentlemen who wears $300 dollar suits clobbers him with a spade and hightails it.moreless
