And speaking of Take a Hard Ride, I think that film was filmed in the Canary Islands instead of Almeria?
Yes TAKE A HARD RIDE 1975 , an Italy/USA/Spain co production was filmed in the Canary
Islands and directed by prolific Italian Director ANTHONY DAWSON aka Antonio Margheriti.
Among the all star cast was Barry Sullivan , Robert Donner and Jim Kelly.
Speaking Of Jim Kelly thanks for the pic from Enter The Dragon 1973.
Take A Hard Ride has one of my fav western scores by Jerry Goldsmith, and his Breakheart Pass score comes a close second ;D.
I am in full agreement about these super Film Soundtracks Ennio.
TAKE A HARD RIDE 1975 I thought the music was beautifully blending in with the film to
excellent effect. Breakheart Pass also a quality score from the talented Jerry Goldsmith.
EL CONDOR 1970 Brazilian DVD has both English and Portuguese Audio
Leading ladies in EL CONDOR are MARIANNA HILL IMOGEN HASSALL Both are :-* :-*
JIM BROWN a talented , handsome, likeable Black Superstar Actor 1960s/1970s
was memorable/outstanding in:
EL CONDOR 70 , RIO CONCHOS 64 , 100 RIFLES 69 , TAKE A HARD RIDE 75
He appeared also in Classic Action Adventures like MERCENARIES 68 ROD TAYLOR
Racial tension potboiler TICK TICK TICK 1970
Penal island Classic I ESCAPED FROM DEVIL’s ISLAND 1973 CHRIS GEORGE
JIM BROWN a Leading Man of SWS, Westerns and CLassic 1960s/1970s Films
Jim Brown was also arguably the best football(American) player in history.
Do you know how many years he played for?
If memory serves me…he played 9 seasons for the Cleveland Browns. He quit in his prime to go make movies. He was also a great lacrosse player in college(Syracuse.)
Not bad at all then.
JIM BROWN was a fair sportsman but as an ACTOR of WESTERNS/ACTION FILMS
He was REBORN and BECAME for me the NUMBER 1 Black Actor in Films.
MARIANNA HILL also was a leading lady with many superb films and se-xy talent.
Reading that post that Jim Brown was fair as an athlete is like saying Tiger Woods is an above average golfer! LOL!
I really want to check out El Condor. Sounds like it is interesting enough and entertaining.
JIM BROWN’s FILM Career credits are extremely impressive and high quality.
Outstanding Westerns, Action Adventures, Thrillers make Jim Brown No 1 Black Actor.
Morgan Freeman and Sidney Poitier fans may disagree as do I.
I disagree too! Fred Williamson all the way. Then Jim Brown and Woody Strode. With Sean Michaels coming up the rear! A star of over 600 films; talented, handsome actor.
Talking of Fred Williamson, there’s a great interview with him in the latest issue of Darkside. Very interesting.
EL CONDOR 1970 LEE VAN CLEEF + JIM BROWN + MARIANNA HILL
I have no doubts that JIM BROWN is the number 1 Black Actor for top film credits.
Fred Wiliamson & Sidney Poitier also good.
Well, I like Jim Brown, but there are so many famous black actor’s meanwhile, many, many which are much more famous, also many which are more talented actors.
Morgan Freeman fits for both categories.
I hate to DISAGREE with Herr Stanton but Morgan Freeman is for me TOO RECENT
and has very few “good” films to his credit. He is supporting, not bad but no big deal.
JIM BROWN = 100 RIFLES 1969 MERCENARIES 1968 EL CONDOR 1970
RIO CONCHOS 1964 TAKE HARD RIDE 1975 I ESC.DEVIL ISLAND 73
After JIM BROWN I would rate Sidney Poitier and Fred Williamson.
