Charlie Bronson cashed in big with this lightweight action thriller co-starring Jill Ireland and Robert Duvall. Did Duvall get involved because the original concept was a serious look at political scandals between big business, the CIA and Chile? The clues from the real source story are still there.

Whether it’s the golden era of spaghetti westerns or the more blood soaked appeal of the Tarantino films, there’s no denying that Hollywood loves the appeal of the old west. From books, to video games, and even casino slots, the world loves a good western. We take a look at some of the greatest films in history!
Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid
Without a doubt, one of the most popular westerns in cinematic history, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was released in 1969. Directed by George Roy Hill and written by William Goldman the film is loosely based on a true story. It tells the story of the outlaws Robert LeRoy Parker, known as Butch Cassidy and his partner Harry Longabaugh, the Sundance Kid, who are on the run after a string of train robberies. The pair, along with Longabaugh ‘s lover Etta Place flee to Bolivia in »

When Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi’s latest film, The Salesman, was announced as part of last year’s Cannes lineup, very little information about it was initially made available. There were indications that the title might refer to Arthur Miller’s landmark play Death Of A Salesman, but little else. That one proffered detail turned out to be at once accurate and misleading. Death Of A Salesman does indeed figure into the story, as the film’s main characters, a married couple, are playing Willy and Linda Loman in an amateur production. On the whole, however, this starkly confrontational melodrama has more in common with the Charles Bronson classic Death Wish, even if it’s angry words rather than bullets that go whizzing across the screen.
The trouble begins with literal cracks in the foundation. Emad (Shahab Hosseini), who teaches by day and acts by night, is forced, along with »

A TV icon for sure, star one of the best sitcoms of all time, but Mary Tyler Moore left a mark with her big screen work including her Oscar-nominated turn in the 1980 Best Picture winner Ordinary People. She co-starred with Charles Bronson in X-15, Elvis in a A Change Of Habit, Julie Andrews in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and played Ben Stiller’s mom in David O. Russel’s Flirting With Disaster. Her Ordinary People performance was wonderful and incredibly surprising at the time but it’s her TV work, from Happy Hotpoint, the Hotpoint Appliance elf in the mid-50’s, to The Dick Van Dyke Show to her winning three Emmys as Mary Richards on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Ms Moore live for many years with Type 1 diabetes and passed away this morning at age 80.

He's created a series of performances that have taken advantage of his intensity, his brutish physique and his way around a multi-syllable sentence – and now, Tom Hardy has somehow created a role for himself that feels more Tom Hardy than almost anything else he's done. In Taboo, the new FX series the actor co-created with father Chips Hardy and Peaky Blinders showrunner Steven Knight, he plays gruff protagonist James Delaney, an early 19th-century explorer who returns home to London to find out he's inherited land sought after by the East India Company. »
