Monte Walsh in Spanish from YouTube. This movie is not easy to get.
Monte Walsh … a real maverick …

Monte Walsh … a real maverick
MFW: Monte Walsh seemed to get decent promotion – lots of excellent posters – and boasts a stellar cast … yet somehow seemed to slip under the fence.
But I believe this is one Western that will age well and eventually earn it’s rightful place at the bar.
“This is a remarkable film, a work of gentle and understated power, one which can break your heart and yet fill it up with renewed optimism at the same time.”
“Lee Marvin has to go down as of the Hollywood greats. Starting out in supporting roles, he damned near stole the picture from many a legendary lead.”
“Jack Palance was another performer who could ignite the screen at will, an actor of extraordinary intensity who was capable of exhausting an audience emotionally.”
“It’s one of those films that grows on you and draws you further in with each subsequent viewing, improving with age.”
I’m giving Monte Walsh an 8 out of 10.
“100%” from critics and “57%” from viewers ??
That’s a pretty large canyon.
But I liked it.
“When we get through… you’re gonna want to take a nap,
sit on the porch and wait for the mares to come callin’.”
