It is my favorite movie and I have watched it over and over again - needless to say I also have got the DVD. I am glad they don't grow ruts though, like LPs did, way back when...

But Cuffs, honestly, who would watch the movie for Law? He is a necessary character in the plot, but I agree about his acting. I do like Luigi Pistilli, though, he has got a great face and he is a brilliant baddie, too!

    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... more

        Luigi was a great Italian stage actor who put his talent to great use in several Italian Westerns. I remember reading about Luigi's suicide in Variety in 1996. His son has killed himself and he was... more

            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

              ...all the evidence I've gathered thus far suggest Lee approached acting as a Job -- altho once he gained some success at it, he made serious efforts to improve himself and learn the craft. That's... more

                There are many factors that led to LVC's "decline" in "Fame"...too many to detail in this post, alas, Maggs! ;P As for the "Male Equivalent" of the Casting Couch (not limited to Directors: other... more
                • Ah, yes...Maggie, Wed Oct 25 3:56am
                  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

                      You raised interesting points. Yes, LVC had his share of career slumps, and no, they were noch mono-causal, things rarely are. I'm also curious how the Weinstein scandal will influence public opinion ... 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
