Having lived on 4 dollars a day and not known what the next day would bring me this film is ultra-cool for people who know how to float through places of hip outside U.S. shores. I loved it then and love it now. Plus Lou Rawls!! James Coburn and Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Paul Newman, Bruce Lee, Robert Redford, Tony Curtis and many more are the people to watch. Some reviews say it is fluff but this shows the ultra cool Coburn at his best. The cast is excellent and now with the world economy crashing a taste of Duffy and Bullitt and Enter The Dragon and The Hustler in theaters might be a welcome relief from terminator 20 and all the other junk out there corporations push on the public. These guys and gal are actually acting.
Universal bring back PJ with George Peppard and Gayle Hunnicut too. We need these 60's folks on the screen again. Release Duffy on DVD!
