The Scalphunters (DVD)
Directed by Sydney Pollack
Directing great Sydney Pollack (Three Days of the Condor) delivers a "rousing good show" (The Film Daily) with this fast-paced western written by William Norton (White Lightning, Gator) with "irresistible humor" and "delightful ironies" (Motion Picture Herald). Starring screen legend Burt Lancaster (Elmer Gantry) and Shelley Winters (Lolita) along with Telly Savalas (TV's Kojak) and Ossie Davis (Do the Right Thing). The Scalphunters is "a lively, ribald and unpredictable pleasure which carries the western into new country" (Los Angeles Times)! When trapper Joe Bass (Lancaster) is bushwacked by Indians who steal his furs; and leave him a runaway slave (Davis) in exchange ; he's determined to get his property back. But when the Indians are attacked by outlaws, Joe and his unwanted companion must join forces to retrieve the furs in a startling, action-packed journey that concludes with one of the "all-time cinematic comeuppances" (Citizen News). Co-starring Dabney Coleman (9 to 5).
