Mackenna's Gold (18-Mar-1969)

Director: J. Lee Thompson

Writer: Carl Foreman

From novel by: Heck Allen

Music Composed by: Quincy Jones

Producers: Carl Foreman; Dimitri Tiomkin

Keywords: Western, Treasure Hunt

A dying Indian tells Mackenna, the town sheriff, the location of a legendary lost valley of gold. Since he's actually been there he does not believe a word of it, but others do -- townsfolk, bandits, and cavalry. A roster of big-name actors are quickly killed early in the movie, to little purpose. Entertaining western, but should have been better considering the talent and budget.
