The last of the Magnificent Seven rides out

Must’ve watched the film The Magnificent Seven quite a few times – enjoying it each time. A great story-line, super cool and wonderful actors, an excellent baddie acted by Eli Wallach, and Elmer Bernstein’s score to stitch together all the action.

It’s surprising that the film was released in 1960, when compared other films of the period that have dated awfully. Great films last. Last week, Robert Vaughn, the last of the Magnificent Seven passed away.  Here’s a pictorial reminder of the seven.

One thought on “The last of the Magnificent Seven rides out

  1. Absolutely agree about this classic and its a rarity in that it is a Hollywood remake of the 1954 Japanese classic Seven Samurai written and directed by Akrai Kurosawa. Many Hollywood remakes of classic foreign films often fall flat.
    His film Yojimbo(The Bodyguard) was taken by Sergio Leone and remade (unauthorized) scene-by-scene and released as ‘A Fistful of Dollars’
