A bandit terrorizes a small Mexican farming village each year. Several of the village elders send three of the farmers into the United States to search for gunmen to defend them. They end up with seven, each of whom comes for a different reason. They must prepare the town to repulse an army of thirty bandits who will arrive wanting food.
The Magnificent Seven transplants Seven Samurai into the Old West with a terrific cast of Hollywood stars — and without losing any of the story’s thematic richness.
