A Trinity (big grin) of Others to Rustle Up a Heap of Enjoyable Viewing Department:



This one also sports a TER-rific, unjustly forgotten song wonderfully warbled at the beginning of the flick by



(which you kin watch over on YouTube (“I’m Satisfied” - James Coburn in Duffy (1968).



Then Ms. Hepburn (who was a big fan of his knife-wielder in The Mag 7) was thrilled to have him



beamed aboard as one of the trio of villains



in



Und leave us not forget his charmingly conniving stint opposite buddy James Garner



in



Such style as he so effortlessly exemplified is damn near extinct



these lethally (almost terminally) lacklustre days frown

Last night I viewed "The Presidents Analyst" (again), one of James Coburn's best. Now that Paramount has opened its doors, I wonder what the chances are of Lalo Schifrin's wild & wacky score being released?

that song was the cause of a lot of problems concerning the video release of this title>
A score cd with the song included would make for a way cool rlease!

Just watched Coburn on the S1 Bonanza episode, "The Truckee Strip", and Our Man Flint was one villainous S.O.B., as he deprives our Joe Cartwright of happiness when he tries to rape then kills Joe's girlfriend as well as trying to instigate a range war! Coburn has charisma to burn here, with his 64 teeth gleaming in the brilliantly-remastered DVD and making death threats to Joe Cartwright. The two have a great fistfight in a barn, too. This may be Coburn's nastiest turn on Bonanza, but he would return to menace Adam Cartwright in S2's "The Dark Gate" (in a standout performance and the highlight of S2) and S3's "The Long Night", where Coburn steals Adam's identity. Coburn and Pernell Roberts had previously worked together in 1959's RIDE LONESOME.

COBURN!!!!!!!! cool

Flint: "I noticed that these men were wearing Battle of the Bulge ribbons."

Cramden: "There is no ribbon for the Battle of the Bulge."

Flint: "Exactly."

The Baltimore Bullet (1980)

This one stars James Coburn and Omar Sharif as pool hustlers. This movie got played on HBO every day back around 1981. I remember the trailer they'd show with the Great Coburn saying something like, "I taught you everything you know, but not everything *I* know!" with that HUGE grin of his! As a kid, I thought Coburn was kind of jokey--little did I know that he was among the coolest people ever to walk this old brown world.

In David Weddle’s authoritative



biography



he relates another example of



professionally-personal brand of loyalty to



[ The final sequence, an elaborate battle in a railway yard, is all set to go when the German producers
arrive and say the film has run out of money. The sequence must be canceled.

Peckinpah breaks down in tears.

Coburn grabs the producers and screams “We’re gonna do this f-----' thing! We’re gonna do it right!!
Now get the f--- off the set
!!!”



They did. ]

One of our favorites of his 1970s period:



with a beautifully breezy and silky-smooth Lalo Schifrin score





that’s profoundly overdue for an official release.



And leave us not forget this flick, either –



man, he was one MEANNNNN mother.
