I'll share the feeling that Euan Lloyd was a terrific and persuasive producer who hired actors and treated them well. But the movies he made were TERRIBLE! I have watched SHALAKO, CATLOW, WILD GEESE, they are awful. The scripts are disasters, the stories are primarily misogynist and the directors are generally hacks. The documentary makes him out to be David Lean or Sam Spiegal. In reality, his films are big budget Samuel Z Arkoff. That is what makes this film so much fun, these terrible films are treated like some of the greatest films of all time while they are brutal. Don't believe me, watch SHALAKO! (an extra on the Wild Geese DVD)
