  • Fun time movie making..........

    I was an extra in the movie, at least the portion filmed around Kanab, Utah. It was a fun movie with some great stars. We rode spirited horses, dressed as Indians and cavalry. In fact, in the winding down scene, we are chasing ourselves as cavalry men and as Indians. Couldn't recruit enough Piutes that could ride a horse. We rode with Telly Salvalas and actually scalp Burgess Meredith.Many of the stars stayed at the old Parry Lodge Hotel, presently owned by this 1969 move extra.

  • JUNK MOVIE - Worst I have seen on TCM

    Yes I forced myself to watch this movie during the afternoon. I cannot remember watching such a 'crap western' with so many big name stars. Filming, editing, indoor, outdoor photography was the worst I have seen for a 1969 movie. This is my very first time to comment on this TCM website, but please destroy ALL copies and videos of such a 'Trashie Movie'. Just glad I did not pay cash money to watch it back in 1969..... TCM - Do not have a repeat showing.....Disappointed....

  • An Epic Film Lost in (full screen) Translation

    Mackenna's Gold is a bit of a genre bender. It's part western, part epic 1960's super-widescreen adventure and it also has a bit of a sci-fi/lost world flavor. The cast is made up of big names, the budget was obviously big and the movie was filmed in Panavision 65mm. Unfortunately, all the 'big' is lost because Sony decided go the cheap route and release this only in a poor quality full screen/pan & scan version. It's sad to see a film this big lost because of a company with such a small vision. A fan of this film can only hope for a corrected re-release sometime in the future.

    Good Story telling. A Prequel to the Mummy.

  • A Contemporary Adult Western of the Late 1960s.

    J. Lee Thompson, the driector of "The Guns of Navarone", "Cape Fear" (1962), and "What a Way to Go!", now brings you a spectacular Wild West adventure featuring an star-studded cast led by Gregory Peck, Omar Sharif, Julie Newmar, Telly Savalas and Lee J. Cobb, narrated by Victor Jory, about a U.S. Marshal (Peck) captured by a ruthless Mexican bandito (Sharif), because he's knows the tortuous route to the fabulous Canon del Oro. A super cast saddled with a ludicrous script, made worse by tampering that cut extremely long film leaving a lot of loose ends. Don't miss former TV Catwoman, Julie Newmar's skinny dipping scene. She has a purrr-fectly beautiful fanny that will make you purr. Also starring Keenan Wynn, Camilla Sparv, Burgess Meredith, Ted Cassidy, Eli Wallach, Edward G. Robinson, Raymond Massey, Anthony Quayle, Rudy Diaz, Shelley Morrison, Eduardo Ciannelli, Pepe Callahan & John Garfield, Jr. Filmed on location in Grant Pass and Medford, Oregon, Kanab, Utah, Arizona's Canyon de Chelly and in Page, Arizona, and Palmdale, California.

  • Mackenna's gold robbed by full screen

    Gregory Peck and Omar Sharif are two fine actors.This movie could have have been so much better had they not changed from Panavision to full screen on the DVD.What a rip-off.Such beautiful scenery cut down to half of its size.It's a movie with such grand panoramas and the scenery plays such a huge part in the story.

    Far too long, which results in more than a few slow stretches. The interesting cast is a big plus as is the big budget of the film. Good cinematography, fine score.

  • MacKenna's Gold is Gold

    One of the best westerns around. All star cast and great at-the-time effects. Bummer that nobody sells the wide screen version and the screen size loses all the dramatic scenery.But a lot of fun story and movie.
