100 RIFLES is an action packed Western Classic starring Raquel Welch, Burt Reynolds and Jim Brown.
Reynolds plays Yaqui Joe, an Indian who robs a bank in order to buy guns for his people who are being savagely repressed by the government.
Set in turn of the century Mexico, it tells the story of his flight into Mexico and his pursuit by an American lawman. They eventually become allies and team up with Welch to take up the cause of the Indians.
The film is being released on DVD on August 2, 2010, thanks to Optimum Home Releasing as part of its Classic Western Collection.

1912, Mexico. Lyedecker, an Arizona-law enforcer visits a remote village in search of Yaqui Joe, a fearless bank robber who has stolen thousands of pounds from an Arizona bank in order to help his tribe obtain rifles to protect themselves against the ruthless actions of the local government.
Concerned at first only with his mission, Lyedecker has not reckoned on the locals, who include the beautiful and reckless Sarita (Raquel Welch), and soon finds himself being pulled into the complex and dangerous tensions of the town.
