THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (Theatrical Release USA 1960)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

The Magnificent Seven
—a good opportunity to academically study the actor Yul Brynner—seems a little slow, but definitely is worth the watch. The all-star cast is well-received and the organization of the film shows the skill of Director John Sturges during the 1960s.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director John Sturges for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producer Walter Mirisch for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Chris Larabee Adams (Yul Brynner), Calvera (Eli Wallach), Vin Tanner (Steve McQueen), Chico (Horst Buchholz), Bernardo O’Reilly (Charles Bronson), Lee (Robert Vaughn), Harry Luck (Brad Dexter), Britt (James Coburn), Hilario (Jorge Martínez de Hoyos), Old Man (Vladimir Sokoloff), Petra (Rosenda Monteros), and Sotero (Richo Alaniz).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. For your time and money watch the 2016 remake of the same title. The most value in watching the 1960s story comes from an academic comparison study of the two films.
