Since you're giving hints, I believe I reviewed this one: The Gunfighter (1950).

Clawing your way up from the bottom of the list - give yourself a point.

Still only available on DVD, as part of the Fox Western Classics 3-pack. This film is another of my personal top 10 westerns. I rate it a close competitor to The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. Peck played dark characters very well.

Yes. He is in the foreground, to our right of the man sitting at the table wearing a kufiya...



Little wonder it took so long for someone to chime in on this one...

Indeed. That's pretty bold content for 1965. Hammer Films.

The original image was back on page 1 and resurfaced when someone answered the challenge, then deleted their post when they realized it was old news. I thought the image itself had good nostalgia value.

From the era when Hammer Films replaced creepy horror with more graphic nudity and sex. I've heard that shift was lamented by many of the earlier Hammer Film fans. But I was a big fan of the earlier Hammer Films' product, as were my fellow movie buddies, and I don't remember any of us feeling so bad about there being fewer coffins and cobwebs and more female bottoms and cleavage.

Another stimulating Bob Rafelson-Jack Nicholson pairing, back when Nicholson was a marvelous film actor and had not yet drifted into goofy self-parody. Performances by a stellar cast are good all around but with a truly awesome performance by Ellen Burstyn!
