Female Artillery (1973)

Directed by Marvin Chomsky
My rating: 1.5 stars out of 4

Outlaw Dennis Weaver befriends a wagon train of women and kids stranded in the mountains of the desert southwest. He stashes his latest haul from a bank robbery with them while eluding his former gang members who want their cut. They find an abandoned cavalry fort where they try to fake out the gang outside by pretending to be soldiers, hence the title. It doesn't work, and neither does the film. Weaver is basically playing his McCloud character here (it debuted later the same year), even wearing a similar iconic coat and hat, but comes off as an annoying woman chaser.
