VALDEZ IS COMING…
…One of my favourite Westerns. It has an engrossing story - based on racism - a perfectly stoic, and passive (until it really counts) performance from the excellent Burt Lancaster - who then erupts like a truck-load of fire-crackers!
Simply add several breath-taking Almerian land-scapes; a generous dose of gun-blazing violence, a pinch of snotty-nosed, sneering ‘gringos’, and a delicious script - who could ask for a more delicious recipe of Western mayhem?
I love it!
And…as for Elmore Leonard…he was a master-craftsman with the written word!
