Lee looks good
Sun Oct 22, 2017 8:16am

I own this film & think Lee does an excellent job playing the father figure. Law is too stiff; don't like his performance at all. My favorite scene is when Ryan finds Cavanaugh. Lee drinking at the bar is so interesting, the way he is dressed, his expression, the drop of whiskey left on his bottom lip. The later conversation in the bedroom with Ryan & Cavanaugh is Lee at his best--the way he moves, smiles & that voice. Perfect paused shot in the shadows when Lee leaves the room--that gorgeous face!

              I often wondered if the numbers were high among professional actors because of an identity crisis. I believe that many in the profession take solace in continually pretending to be somebody else, as... more

                    Well, the remarks about decline in fame were not coined on LVC but meant as a contribution to the discussion of high sucide rates in the business. Hmmm, the casting couch, yes, indeed, that was... more

          To me the voice actor who dubbed Lugi in Death Rides A Horse also dubbed the sheriff. And one of the characters at the beginning of the film. It was dubbed from what I understand in Rome. The Leone... more
