Got another Western = "BREAKHEART PASS"
« on: May 09, 2016, 09:32:28 AM »

Another of Alistair MacLean's novels scripted for the screen. This one a mystery/western starring Charles Bronson.
Like all of MacLeans novels, this one has a complex plot, & the movie has excellent production values.
Took me considerable digging to get a DVD copy of this one...worth it. ;D

Alistair MacLean was one of my favorite authors - I think I still have all of his novels. Breakheart Pass was one of his better books.  The movie was done very well.  Also starred Richard Crenna and Bronson's wife (at the time) Jill Ireland.

Indeed, brotha budroe. Thanks for the correction.

Sophia, Claudia and Stella Stevens, with Jason Robards in The Ballad of Cable Hogue (a Sam Peckinpah movie)......Man did they build those ladies  back then! And faces to launch the proverbial fleets.

The Professionals was just plain good!
