The Appaloosa (Special Edition)
Directed by Sidney J. Furie
The Appaloosa (Special Edition)
Southwest to Sonora rode the lustful, the lawless… living on the edge of violence! Screen icon Marlon Brando (The Missouri Breaks, On the Waterfront) stars in a tale of vengeance against a Mexican bandito and his gang of pistoleros. Matt Fletcher (Brando) has killed many men and sinned against many women. Vowing to give up his sordid past, he returns to his sleepy hometown on the Mexican border with a magnificent Appaloosa stallion. His hopes to start a horse ranch take a deadly turn when the Appaloosa is stolen by the sadistic bandit Chuy (John Saxon, Enter the Dragon, Queen of Blood), who controls the land with his bloodthirsty gang. Seeking revenge, Fletcher disguises himself as a Mexican and trails the gang back to their village. Barely escaping death, he flees with not only his horse, but also Chuy’s beautiful lover, Trini (Anjanette Comer, The Baby, Guns for San Sebastian). When the relentless Chuy stalks Fletcher across the desert into the snow-capped mountains in a final showdown, only one man will leave with the woman, the Appaloosa… and his life. Directed by Sidney J. Furie (The Ipcress File, The Taking of Beverly Hills) with a screenplay by James Bridges (The China Syndrome) and Roland Kibbee (The Midnight Man), based on a novel by Robert MacLeod (100 Rifles). Beautifully shot in Scope by Russell Metty (Spartacus) and co-starring Emilio Fernández (The Wild Bunch) and Frank Silvera (Valdez Is Coming).
