James Stewart helps his brother Dean Martin and his gang to escape from a prison. They kidnap Raquel Welch and head off into Mexico, followed by sheriff George Kennedy and a posse. Directed by Andrew McLaglen.

Yes, Stewart and Martin play brothers in this film. Are there any Hollywood actors from this period that look less like brothers? They should have hired Jack Palance as a third one. Stewart seems to have realized the unlikeliness of the casting and plays his part as if it was a comedy. Mexican bandits are taking on the role usually played by Indians, faceless villains to be gunned down by the main characters. The film is no classic, but fairly entertaining and that there Raquel Welch sure was purty.
