The Valdez Horses 01/05/21
What we know as Chino is a Charles Bronson star vehicle all the way, and less interesting as a western than for explaining the state of the film business in the early 1970s. A good coming of age story is reshaped to appeal to Bronson fans, while the formerly front rank director John Sturges is frustrated by star demands and producer re-shoots. The extras on PI’s disc show what a free-for all the set must have been — even the writer sees fit to boast about how he told Sturges where to head in. With Jill Ireland, Vincent Van Patten and Marcel Bozzuffi. On Region B Blu-ray from Powerhouse Indicator.
