Waco is one of the all-time great westerns. Waco boasts an outstanding
all-star cast, one of the finest ever assembled for a western film. (Look
especially for fine performances from John Agar as Councilman George
Wendell Corey as Preacher Stone and Anne Seymour as the irrepressible Ma
Jenner!) John Smith and DeForest Kelley combine to form a convincing pair
Keel treads a fine line as he portrays the psychologically complex Waco, a man torn between his violent past, his love for a woman, and his newfound faith in God. Jane Russell is as captivating as ever. Jeff Richards is great as Kallen.
Don't forget to take note of the stirring "Ballad Of Waco" sung at the opening and during the close by Lorne Greene.
Waco is truly a feast for the western fan. Veteran Director R.G. Springsteen can carve a notch on his six gun for this one! ("Chokin' on your own stench, huh?")
Twisted Brain is a low budget film with a lot to say about the human
condition. A young latter-day Dr. Jekyll, Vernon Potts is brilliantly
portrayed by Pat Cardi. Pushed to the breaking point, Potts lashes out
against everyday injustices, prejudices and petty torments. The
is witty, sophisticated and disturbing.
This is a film you will not soon forget. Director Stouffer gets a big thumbs up here. (The paper cutter scene is delicious!)
