The only reason Fonda got top billing is because it was called “Cat Ballou”
Let’s face facts — Fonda was OK in this movie, but Lee Marvin was in his glory as over-the-hill gunslinger Kid Shelleen. Add to that his second role as as the noseless Tim Strawn. Toss in the matter-of-fact way the Kid reveals that he and Tim had been brothers.
And leave us not forget my favorite scene — the “suiting up” of the Kid prior to the ultimate showdown. It’s almost like the investiture of an ancient high priest, down to the acolyte-like functioning of Jackson Two-Bears (played to perfection by Tom Nardini). Absolutely no dialogue, and set, as I recall, to music reminiscent of the Spanish corridas.
If anyone draws up a list of Lee Marvin’s best films, they’d have to be nuts to not put this in the top three. His “Best Actor” Oscar for this film was well-deserved.
And equally high marks to whomever did the stunt work for Marvin. The antics on horseback during the last scenes, with a “drunken” Kid Shelleen in the saddle, have to be seen to be believed.
By all means, see this movie. Be ready to cheer for the “bad guys” as they seek revenge against the “badder guys”. But do NOT, under any circumstances, think for a minute that the movie as shown on TNT is complete. The last time they aired it, they actually CUT part of the above-mentioned dressing scene — an unforgivable sin of omission, in my book. Rent (or buy) the video or DVD instead.
One swell, zany western
A jolly good time fer sure. Cat Ballou is a great diversion with a nice plot (revenge) and a nice cast, too–check out Lee Marvin. It even has all the essentials of a western from the town dance ending with a madcap fistfight to outlaw gunslingers and horses. Cat Ballou pokes fun at practically all of them while still keeping in mind that the real deal is Ballou’s desire to avenge her father. Great fun.
