I see that Sky UK sattelite channel 325 Movies4Men(a free to air channel so i can get it) are now running Man Called Noon-its showing next on Sunday 30th July at 7pm.This sw from 1973 starring Richard Crenna and Stephen Boyd was directed by Peter Collinson so i'm particularly interested in this one because Collinson also directed the original and best version of The Italian Job(one of my favourites Smiley ) .
They also show the Euro western Chino with Charles Bronson quite regularly which i've yet to see Roll Eyes

Chino is a waste of your time. Dont even bother.

even though Shobary belittles "Man Called Noon", I'm a fan of the director and want to see it.

  The Louis L'Amour novel of the same name for A Man Called Noon is good.  Haven't seen the movie, but like Firecracker pointed out, it gets panned.

  Seems like a fair number of L'Amour novels could be made into spaghettis.  Shalako was his, even if it isn't an "official" spaghetti.  Drawing a blank on any other ones.

dont know about you guys but this looks pretty good.

http://spaghettiwesterns.1g.fi/noon/noon.htm

some of those shots look dynamic and interesting.

Shobary bitches about it trying to be spaghetti like but it fails because he doesnt recognise the actors.

wtf?

why is that something to complain about?

I don't take too much notice of what Shobary says about any spaghetti western.I caught a preview of Noon yesterday morning and it looked ok Roll Eyes

Well, I've set the timer for it!  Sunday evening.

I guess review sites are always a bit subjective.  Thats why I tried to include the votes section, as I appreciate that not everyone is going to agree with my view point.  Roll Eyes

Having watched this i don't think Shobarys review is that far off the mark and it isn't really a particlarly negative one,his main problem being the Noon character-quite likeable actually but not in a cool sense admittedly.This movie which has an engaging storyline,is more American flavoured but there are as stated  obvious attempts at sw references with the camera angles etc but we are talking about the British director of the Italian Job afterall.
I don't quite understand Shobarys Close Encounters musical reference-but if he means the parts played with flutes and other woodwind instruments-these actually reminded me of some of the quieter accompaniment to The Grand Duel,a nice ovearll western score in fact!

The only good thing about this movie is Rosanna Schiaffino: not in her prime, but still a good sight. Crenna looks very much like Johnny Cash: if only he could sing! He might enliven this draqgging movie, which forgets the simple lesson that westerns live on confrontations, fast, or at least not dragging development. I wonder whether the novel is just as slow-moving.
