Took a shot at Alternative Videos in their western section on a pan and scan VHS of Captain Apache with Lee Van Cleef and Stuart Whitman.

 Now this was a bad movie, from the cinematography to the incredibly lousy score with the added plus of actually having LVC singing the beginning title and ending. lol.

Lee played a Native American captian in an imaginative black fringed leather jacket with fur collar with captian bars on the shoulders.

What a range from reaching for the stars from Leone to this. They also have a copy of "Bad Mans River" which I'll check out soon.

Yipes, I must admit I did see Captain Apache in a theater, 30+ years ago.  Mediocre film, not great singing by LVC, but I seem to remember a shirtless scene with him, and he apparently did a fair amount of working out as he had considerable muscles, and he was no youngster at that time.

Yea that was a sceen where the indian chief will not speak to him dressed as a white man so he strips down to a breechcloth. Lol, I wonder if that was really LVC or a body double.

Ive never seen the movie. But ive seen some black/white stills of Cleef in Apache,Stranger & The Gunfighter sort of era. He looked built up.
How old do you think he was then?

According to http://www.imdb.com LVC would have been around 45 or 46 years old when he made CAPTAIN APACHE.  Pretty buff for an old dude.

You're right Groggy, he had to make a living, I suppose he never expected those movies to see the light of day on this side of the Atlantic.

Anybody see the uncut LVC's "Day of Anger"?

Cig - what do you mean "uncut version" of Day of Anger?  I saw it in the theater in 1970, was that version an edited version?  If so, where is uncut version available?  Why was title changed to "Days of ..." ?

In the Pocket Essentials Spaghetti Westerns they cite the un-cut version, I just assumed there may be other versions out there, never seen the film myself.

By the way how was  it?

I rented it on VHS once, some twenty years ago.
It really did suck, even when I was in my teens. The film is a part of the string of mediocre movies van Cleefe made after GBU, but I guess it put bread on his table...

Well, I got myself a copy of Lee Van Cleef's oft laughed about "Captain Apache" for the prize sum of 1p English money off of Ebay.

I've not seen it yet, but I had to watch the opening sequence just to hear the Cleef sung title track.  Well mock me not, but it had me tappin m' toes!  And laughing a bit.  Whether the film is so enjoyable will be another matter!
