That's what I remembered, that's why I launched the film while I knew I wouldn't have the time to see the ending Wink

I know this is gonna sound real bad, but I did the exact same thing a couple of times, and not only with HOV. Next thing, I'll be doing internet Westerns, then, Heaven only knows, maybe become a professional rapist...

Day Of The Evil Gun (1968) strangely episodic uneven film, no style, a riff on Face To Face, Glen Ford, Arthur Kennedy, Dean Jagger, Royal Dano, and other familiar faces. A generous 6.5-7/10.

Joe Kidd - 6/10 - Bland Eastwood vehicle with some pretty scenery and a few clever gags. The sniper duel is the only really memorable scene. I don't see any useful similarities to The Great Silence, sorry.

Johnny Cool (1963) - 7/10. In Sicily, a Salvatore Giuliano type (here called "Salvatore Giordano", played by Henry Silva), is hunted and killed by the police. But it's a phony--the police have stage-managed the killing, leaving the body of another in Giordano's place so that they can deliver a very live Giordano to an exiled American gangster living in Rome. The gangster (Marc Lawrence) explains why he has arranged for Giordano "death"--he needs an assassin without ties to go to the U.S. and take out all those who have betrayed him. Giordano--rechristened Johnny Cool--at first demurs, then takes the job when the gangster convinces him he'll be his adopted son and "inherit everything." In New York Johnny meets a thrill-seeking society girl (Elizabeth Montgomery) who quickly becomes his lover and accomplice. Then the killing begins: Joe Turkel, Jim Backus, Brad Dexter, John McGiver, Mort Sahl (!), and finally even Telly Savalas receive visits from Death's Messenger. Luckier are those who merely provide amusing cameos: Richard Anderson, Joey Bishop (as a car lot salesman), Elisha Cook Jr. and Sammy Davis Jr. (with an eye-patch--hah!). In the end, betrayals all around (natch). This film is a trip, and was produced by Peter Lawford.

Second Chance (1953) That's what I gave to this movie, wrongly. It all hangs on the mountain cable car incident and the rest is fluff. maybe in 3D this had more  consistence, but I doubt it. 4\10

Brute Force (1947) I don't know if this was the first prison movie to feature a sadistic warden in a prominent role, but Hume Cronyn's character is the only credible one in this flick . The inmates are all good samaritans who did wrong out of generosity of love toward their companions (Ella Raines is the best looking of the lot, as usual). Probably the torture scene and the Lancaster escape attempt are worth watching but even an older movie like I Am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang is head and shoulder above this.  5\10

I don't have anything else to add outside of noting that there are a couple nice tracking shots.

Well, you could have mentioned the Sammy Davis Jr. songs. What's wrong with you, daddy-o?

He made two mistakes, though: why isn't Whoopie Goldberg playing Whoopie Goldberg; and, why isn't Sidney Pollack playing Sidney Pollack?

Duck Soup (1933) - 8/10
I prefer Night at the Opera. A real shame is that many (especially Groucho's) jokes are so fast that I couldn't always follow. And you just can't subtitle something like that.
