& Horst Buchholz –The Magnificent Seven (1960) **
What I said the other day, you looking like me, that ain’t true. You ain’t ugly like me, it’s just that we both have got scars.
Unforgiven (1992) dir. Clint Eastwood
Lee as Deck Sommers, safe cracker extraordinaire in Rawhide, s07e03.
Pete: They just started trying to kill each other.
Mr. Favor: What’s going on between you two?
Rowdy: Look. As long as I have you for company, I’ll walk up to the devil himself. But there’s no room for you in this.
Lee as Dave Chittun in Untamed Frontier (1952). Ebay sellers had Lee placed as the one falling off the horse in some of the above photos, but I don’t know for sure if this is correct (somehow I doubt he’d be made to do stunts like this, but who knows).
The Magnificent Seven (1960)
“The old man was right. Only the farmers won. We lost. We always lose.”
Yul Brynner & Steve McQueen – The Magnificent Seven – 1960
This is the single scene I love most in all the films I have ever seen in my life. Don Quixote and D’Artagnan side by side on a hearse, both competent at what they do, both self-contained and ironic, both willing to risk their lives in a gratuitous anti-racist deed. Each vaguely intrigued by the other. Each complementing the other.
