Title: Jesse & Lester, Two Brothers In A Place Called Trinity (Richard Harrison, 1972)
Post by: LANZETTA on 17 Jul 2007 - 22:15
Wasn't expecting too much from this movie especially when judging by the title that this is an obvious attempt to cash in on the back of the success of Enzo Barboni's comedy sw's .
Directed by Richard Harrison this is the tale of two brothers brought together by inheritance but both with very different idea's of what to do with the money.Womaniser Jesse,played by Harrison (with his big bleached blond hair,elongated moustache and blue eyes is a total deadringer for Franco Nero,Companeros era-i suspect this was intentional) wants to open up a whorehorse but Lester,the scruffiest Mormon priest ever played by a very mean looking Donal O'Brien but very irritating with his goody-goody beliefs predictably wants to buy a church so we end up with one episode after the other of not only bandits stealing the loot but the brothers are double crossing each other too,but most of this comedy just doesn't work and the film terribly overlong because of this.Not even a decent soundtrack i'm afraid.

My rating 5 out of 10. ???

Very bad comedy western but it has it's moments. Surprisingly Donal O'Brien is quite good at making comedy. His crazy religious mormon character is the best thing in the film.
