Pocket Money (1972)

Pocket Money (1972), directed by Stuart Rosenberg.

A quirky, nearly plotless western comedy about buying cattle in Mexico. Paul Newman is lighter-headed than usual and partner Lee Marvin is a sharp operator who barely knows what he is doing. Strother Martin is their shady employer and Wayne Rogers his blowhard minion.

I'd never heard of this until I stumbled across it at Netflix. Try it only if you are collecting the off-beat or like the stars. Filmed in real places and it has absurd early-70s charm. It's a character study of some strange characters.

Terrence Malick screenplay. Carole King wrote and sings the theme. The rest of the score is an eclectic mix: dixieland and other stuff.
