I just watched Duck, You Sucker! for the first time only a few weeks ago. I think it might rightfully be my favorite Leone film; it was incredible!

I mean, it's got Rod Steiger as a Mexican and James Coburn?! That was already the icing on the cake, and the cake was damn near perfect!


It truly is a mesmerizing and exciting film, and both performances are a kick. Just hearing Steiger call Coburn "Firecracker" with his thick accent kills me. And the opening sequence of all the snobs gorging themselves is Leone gold.

Oh man! You should've seen me get all-giddy-like-a-schoolboy during that sequence! I loved it!

As a side note, I can't tell you how much I've been listening to the soundtrack (which I owned before seeing the film) since I saw the film. iTunes lists 23 recent playings; and that's solely when I'm on the computer! I should mention that I get to listen to my iPod during the early morning hours at work; and don't forget the drive home!

He was one of my faves as well.
Incredible charisma.
Although his Australian accent in 'The Great Escape' is ........ weird big grin

Just a great movie! & happily the very best looking DVD of those MGM Leone Sp. Ed's.

Way to go, Stefan.

Under-rated, under-seen and worth checking out for one of Coburn's earlier unflinching portraits of a totally selfish hombre who wrecks havoc upon any and all he comes into contact with.



Ihnat did a most commendable job ...





Actually, I am dying of watching two rare early Seventies flicks with James Coburn:
"The Honkers"
"Harry in your Pocket"


THE HONKERS is airing this weekend on the encore westerns channel! I don't have this channel currently, but if you do and you want to see this movie, I would suggest recording it (and sending me a copy)!

You can keep bringing this thread back!
I wish we had a westerns channel in England.

Hello Joe,

Can you record it and send it to me back to my European bunker? Do you have an acquaintance who can do the job?

Gus

I wish I did, Stefan! I won't be getting the channel for a few months, so when it invariably comes back, I'll be sure to record it...

Maybe Coburn's best film. Like the "Flints", just so 60s - & that's a good thing.


On tomorrow @2pm (et) on TCM.

Too bad! Really too bad! A missed opportunity!
I hope this film will be released on DVD soon. I can't wait for it anymore! I will implode!

Please, don't torture me and don't mention the showing of a movie I dream to watch. It's too painful. Try to understand...

Here's a clip. Nice music by Lalo in this sequence; I'd love to have it. Bruce Geller directed.
