Description by OLDIES.com:
It's a Wild West clash of personalities in Val Verde, Texas, for the warring Bishop brothers (Dean Martin and James Stewart), who must now join forces to escape a death sentence. Featuring an all-star cast, including Raquel Welch and George Kennedy and exploding with action, Bandolero! packs a smoking six-gun wallop from its first tense show-down to its last exciting shootout.
After being sentenced to death for their participation in a bank robbery, a pair of outlaw brothers take a beautiful woman hostage and flee across the Mexican desert. Naturally, she falls for one of them, even though her husband was killed in the bank robbery. Though the plot stretches credulity, this one's still worth watching for the sheer fun of it.
A pair of outlaw brothers on the run must fight off a sheriff's posse and vicious Mexican bandits.
Dee Bishop and his gang rob a Texas bank but the sheriff captures them and throws them in jail. They're about to be hanged when Dee's older brother, Mace, comes to their rescue by posing as the executioner. The gunslingers grab Maria, a Mexican woman whose husband died in the robbery attempt, and head out of town -- fast. But they soon have Sheriff July Johnson and his posse hot on their trail.
The thieves flee across the Mexican border with their protesting hostage. Soon, however, Maria has fallen for Dee and the two begin a romance.
Eventually, the posse catches up with them, but the lawmen join forces with the outlaws to fight off attacking Mexican bandits in the film's violent climax.
