The film above was made around the same time as the Sergio Leone dollar films but it was a much greater film albeit shadowed by the Leone westerns. An exceptional cast of the great Lee Marvin, Burt Lancaster, Woody Strode, the great Robert Ryan and the unforgettable Jack Palance. It don't get much better does it? The boys have to cross into Mexico to get back the wife of Claudia Cardinale but finding that she is happy with the Mexican leader Palance they cross back into Texas. The last bit of the film is the rich industrialist husband saying to Marvin.
"You sir are a bastard"
Marvin replies." That was a fault of nature but in your case you are a self made man".
A great scenario here for a game.Or a range.
