The Great Scout & Cathouse Thursday is a 1976 comedy film directed by Don Taylor starring Lee Marvin, Oliver Reed, Sylvia Miles, and Kay Lenz.[1]


Sam Longwood, a frontiersman who has seen better days, has spent the last 15 years looking for his ex-business partner Jack Colby, who ran off with all the gold from a mine they were prospecting, but also took the love of his life, Nancy Sue. Sam, along with his two other partners, Indian Joe Knox and Billy, has finally found Colby and along the way they pick up a young prostitute nicknamed Thursday, but getting their money is not going to be as easy as they think.



Shooting took place in Mexico over a 12-week period in late 1974 and early 1975.[2]
