Valdez is Coming!

I just finished watching Valdez Is Coming, a western starring the great Burt Lancaster.

First off, man, oh, man, do I love the great Burt Lancaster.

Anyway, the movie was filmed in Spain, so it's a little bit Spaghetti, but only a little - and, yes, most Spaghetti's were produced with mostly Italian money but filmed in Spain - based on Elmore Leonard's novel, Valdez Is Coming, which I haven't read, but would like to now more than ever.

The direction is iffy through most of it, but the script is wise enough to keep the great Burt Lancaster onscreen through the vast majority of the film, making each moment worth watching.

Definitely a bit of refreshment after last night's debacle.
