The Man Called Noon (1973)

Here’s a western that in my opinion tries it’s best to imitate the style and feel of a spaghetti western and kind of succeeds despite the cast and director. None of them being […]

The Sicilian Clan (1969)

When the likes of Jean Gabin, Alain Delon and Lino Ventura all share the screen in a crime caper backed by the superb direction of Henri Verneuil and a quirky […]

Machine Gun McCain (1969)

The legendary John Cassavetes was probably considered a hot commodity at the time that this Italian gangland feature found it’s way into movie houses. He’d just scored an Oscar nomination […]

Harvey Keitel : From Bugsy to Mickey

Raise your hands if you recall that Harvey Keitel played Mickey Cohen in support of Warren Beatty and Annette Benning in the 1991 big budget take on Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel […]

Hornet’s Nest (1970)

Two years before John Wayne took a bunch of schoolboys on as cowhands in The Cowboys, Rock Hudson turned up in this WW2 adventure that found him adopting a ragtag […]

The Mercenary (1968)

aka The Professional Gun Long before Jack Palance joined Kurt Russell and Sylvester Stallone in the 1989 action hit, Tango and Cash, that saw the two muscle bound heroes walk […]

A Long Ride From Hell (1968)

The legendary strongman Steve Reeves played his first western in what would prove to be his final screen role thus riding off into the sunset literally at the end of […]

Death Rides a Horse (1967)

Years ago when I was connecting names to genres and movies, Lee Van Cleef was one of those faces a youngster doesn’t easily forget. Death Rides a Horse quite frequently would play […]

Two Mules For Sister Sara (1970)

Don Siegel directs and Shirley MacLaine muscles top billing over her costar (apparently not on the posters) and burgeoning cinema icon, Clint Eastwood. American western? Perhaps, but it sure has […]

Sahara (1983)

And the Razzie Award for Worst Performance by an Actor in a supporting role goes to ………. Brooke Shields! No fooling! Before going any further I’d like to point out […]

Lone Wolf McQuade (1983)

The pinnacle title in the career of Chuck Norris is a very easy mark for fun and games and while I may do just that, consider it a form of […]

The Great Silence (1968)

From director Sergio Corbucci comes a “spaghetti” western I have long heard of and finally got the chance to see for myself. Generally when I have come across a comment […]

A Theatrical Flashback

In my little corner of the world which is a long way from Hollywood there isn’t too many opportunities to catch a retro night at the movie theater. If there […]

The Island (1980)

“What the BLOODY HELL!” I love it when Michael Caine hollers that line. Is it just me or is it in his contract that this line has to be written […]
