I recently saw Robert Redford's " The Old Man and the Gun " and it was probably worst than " The Mule".   It had more material to work with too but it wasn't well done.   I rate it a 5 out of 10...

Thanks, Just watched the video in the link.

Too bad he never discovered furikake (a bit more practical).

Sounds like it would be.

I seem to remember no mention of them being made in the novel. So it was just some kind of joke for the movie.

That's what I was thinking, it must have had some significance to Winner.

King Rat (1965).  I hadn't seen this before.  George Segal in his pre-Goldbergs role, as one of few Americans in a Japanese POW camp in 1945 in Mayalsia.  Corporal King survives by bribing guards and avoiding real friendship.

One of my favorite POW films. 10/10

It's actually based on the reminiscences of James Clavell author of Shogun, he was a POW in Changi in Singapore. I remember watching an interview with him where he declared that to that day he still carries around a can of sardines with him wherever he went. He said one can of sardines could flavor a lot of rice meals and you never know when that would come in handy.

interesting note on wikipedia:

"A deleted scene involving Nick's wife Maria (who was played by Patricia Morison) was cut from the film. In this scene, a gangster (played by Henry Brandon) who is supposed to look out for her while Nick is in prison rapes her. Afterwards, Maria commits suicide by sticking her head in the kitchen oven and turning on the gas. Both scenes were cut from the original print at the insistence of the censors, who wanted no depiction of either a rape or a suicide, so although Morison's name appears in the credits, she does not appear in the film at all. Mention is made later in the film about Mature's wife's suicide and a now obscure reference is made by Nettie that the unseen gangster Rizzo contributed to the wife's downfall."

I forgot to ask before any body know the significance of the four nuns?

You see them just before the attack at the apartment and then another four nuns at the sanitarium.

When I first got into these classic films I had a biased system toward not giving ANY film a 10 out of 10 because I didn't know enough about films to have a solid ground in which to base my ratings on.  Now that I have a good two years under my belt with classic film I feel confident in giving MORE films a 10 than I would have otherwise done two years ago.   

In my system, anything below a 6 isn't worth bothering. 6 to 7 is OK.  8 and above is MUST watch.

Also Voltaire and Joan of Arc near those.

You'd think it would be more Western-y
