Giuliano Gemma meets George Eastman
8 March 2007 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

Giuliano Gemma appeared in quite a few buddy movies, for example with Mario Adorf in "A Sky Full of Stars For A Roof", with Nino Benvenuti in "Vivi o preferibilmente morti" and with Bud Spencer in "Anche gli angeli mangiano fagioli". In "Ben And Charlie", George Eastman (who created the story outline for the screenplay) becomes his companion. Right at the beginning, Charlie (Eastman) swears never to run any criminal "business" with Ben (Gemma) again - who is just out of prison and likely to be back inside soon! But of course it doesn't take long until they get back together and make more or less (usually less) successful attempts at anything from gambling to bank robbery. "Ben And Charlie" is much better than most comedies released at the time, because it doesn't get too silly and maintains a certain character development including even a couple of tragic moments.
