The plot for this caper-comedy western has something to do with a search for government gold that was stolen by the Confederacy and hidden in a waterhole, but what viewers are more likely to remember is the scene were our protagonist (Coburn) rapes the Sheriff's daughter Blye and all the "cute" winks and nods that follow. There are some other gags as well, but they are too bland to be worth mentioning.
James Coburn's character at an outdoor restuarant scene. Donald Sutherland's spec-less character making a big mistake getting caught on the ridge of a grassy few-tree hill and of cause Steve McQueen's character with his heroic motor-bike escapade through enemy occupied countryside for an attempt for freedom. Boy it shows one segment of an escaping character to the next. Some makes it to freedom, some don't. This film is well acted and superbly directed. Among my top ten all-time list regardless of genre.
