HIS NAME WAS BRANCATO (1970)
Low budget oater about a wrongfully accused young gunfighter (John Beck) who to regain his honor must lead a posse to rescue and bring back the kidnapped fiance of a well heeled long suffering town spinster. Tige Andrews, Virginia Gregg, James Stacy, Andrew Prine, Rudy Diaz, Otis Young, Isabel Cooley, Charles Dierkop, and Burr De Benning.


John Beck! He was "everywhere" in 1973. (Sleeper; Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid). Nice to see him in this earlier, non-breakout role.


Yes.

I gave him a bit of a stinker early on in the timeline. You know, Burt Reynolds style.

Looking back on John Beck from that period if he had only played hockey he and his mustache would have fit right in on those old ruffian Philadelphia Flyers teams of the mid-1970's. Bobby Clarke, Dave Schultz and that bunch. He just flat out looks the part.



Great to see this thread back again fellas!

Keep em' coming.

THE VANISHED (1975)

Directed by Lamont Johnson. Screenplay by Paul Schrader and David Zelag Goodman from the Nameless Detective novel of the same name by Bill Pronzini. In his final role, Al Lettieri plays the aging out of shape Italian-American private eye who is hired by a young woman (Michele Marsh) looking for her soldier husband who "vanished" after leaving a German army base to come back home to San Francisco. Nameless searches up and down the west coast, and even flies to Germany to investigate the ever-increasing twists of the plot. Linda Haynes plays his love interest - the sister of one of the missing man's friends. Perry King, Richard Jordan, Edward Binns, and Gary Busey co-star.

Anything with Al Lettieri is "cinematic gold." I hope he is retroactively given more of these detective stories to do.

Lettieri *is* the early '70s. Just as those gold-vine mirror panels are:

WORLD OF PRIMATES (1978)
Fifteen years before JURASSIC PARK, but ten years after PLANET OF THE APES, this feeble attempt at creating a POTA rip-off sees a short-sighted adventurer (James Brolin), biologists (Christopher Reeve and Amy Irving) and sportsman (Edward Fox) stumbling onto an island in the South Pacific inhabited by highly intelligent apes who have patterned their society after the 1960's flower child movement. What follows is a clash of cultures on a collision course towards dire apathy. Playing the Primates: David Bowie as "Leopold", Susan Dey as "Faith", William Conrad as "Nero", Michael York as "Jasper", Lee Remick as "Gertrude", Susannah York as "Petunia", Charles Napier as "Lupus", and David Warner as "Seuss".
