4 for Texas by Robert Aldrich( Visual )

11 editions published between 1963 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin play will business rivals in this Wild West lark of gambling and romance. It's 4 for Texas as the two stars, joined by Anita Ekberg and Ursula Andress, vie for oneupmanship at the card tables of 1870's Galveston. The cards hold a little more fun when the film's many talented co-stars join in. The Three Stooges turn up in a trademark slapstick sketch. Preening Victor Bruno is the most devious, double-crossing villain this side of Snidely Whiplash. And Charles Bronson is a rattlesnake-mean gunslinger with a nasty habbit of absorbing more lead than he dishes out. At center stage, from opening stagecoach shootout to final riverboat melee, pals Sinatra and Martin clearly have a blast. So will you
