you just cleared up a mystery. was wondering what the hell this film BLOOD AND GUNS was. there was a 16mm print of it on ebay a while back for 80-bucks.
emilio fernandez, that's the man. just looked him up on WWW.IMDB.COM
, he has quite a long list of credits, along with 40 credits as director. he was excellent in WILD BUNCH.
never saw PAT GARRET AND BILLY THE KID. liked peckinpah's BRING ME THE HEAD OF ALFREDO GARCIA, and also liked OSTERMAN WEEKEND, but i haven't seen them in years, not sure if i would like them today.
after reading lillian ross' PICTURE i gained a whole new understanding of how a great movie from a great director can get whittled down to nothing, as must have happened to some of sam's movies. so we have to learn to appreciate what we have.
i hated THE GETAWAY, thought it sucked, but my dad liked it a lot, and he has good taste in films, so it maybe it's not that bad, but it's not for me.
and we should have a thread for leone, westerns, and good western character actors. we'll put it right next to the bad ambersons thread.
strother martin in THE WILD BUNCH was excellent, martin and the other eunic that hung out with him. you get the impression they were having sex with livestock.
