"Well, the town's got a big outfit movin' in. Build factories. Make a real city out of Wolf City. They want your daddy's water rights. He won't sell them." (Jackson Two-Bears to Cat Ballou)
"Sir, don't if I could have just one nip to steady my hand... please'" (Kid Sheleen to Frankie Ballou)
"You won't make me cry. You'll never make me cry!" (Cat Ballou to the townsfolk who allowed her father to be killed)
"You all say you love me and are beholden to me and 'Take it easy, Cat, we're going to take care of you'... and the first time I ask you to do one little thing for me like rob one little train..." (Cat to her friends)
Academy Awards 1965 - Best Actor: Lee Marvin
A buoyant western satire....Lee Marvin is great in two roles...
Rating: 4/5 -- First-rate western parody.
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Rating: 2.5/4 -- The picture isn't as consistently funny as its reputation would suggest, but Marvin is terrific. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Marvin won an Oscar for his dual good guy/bad guy portrayal.
Rating: 3/5 -- Mainly remembered for Marvin's Oscar-winning comedic performance
Rating: B -- Though designed as a star vehicle for Jane Fonda, this first "official" spoof of the Western genre, catapulted Lee Marvin to major stardom, offering him two divergent roles (one played with a silver nose) for which he was rewarded with the 1965 Oscar. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- A drunk Lee Marvin on a horse to match makes this comedy western classic.
Fonda is agreeably peppery as a teacher in the Old West who wreaks vengeance on the men who murdered her father. Marvin enlists as a drunken old gunfighter trying to retain his old glory and also portrays his twin brother, a rustler with a silver nose. A 60s-style genre spoof with enough action to keep it real. Marvin won an Academy Award for his two performances.
In this spoof of the Western and the Old West, a young schoolteacher, Cat, and her gang wreak vengeance on the men who murdered her father. They hire a drunken old gunfighter, trying to retain his old glory, to help them with the cause. Together they set out to get even with an English lord who's responsible for the death of Cat's parents.
