The Professionals

117 minutes

Underrated all-star western by Richard Brooks about four soldiers of fortune hired by Ralph Bellamy to rescue his wife, Claudia Cardinale, from Jack Palance down in Mexico. This 1966 film was eclipsed in many people's minds by The Wild Bunch three years later, but it's a good, solid job, and with Burt Lancaster, Lee Marvin, Robert Ryan, and Woody Strode, how could you miss? Adapted from Frank O'Rourke's novel A Mule for the Marquesa, with cinematography by the great Conrad Hall.
