Based on the 1964 novel "A Mule for the Marquesa" by Frank O'Rourke, about four men hired by a wealthy Texan to rescue his wife from a Mexican revolutionary, only to discover the job is not exactly what it seems. A sometimes overlooked and underrated entry into the Western canon, despite being nominated for three Academy Awards, including Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.

Set in Mexico and Texas, shot on location in Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and California.
