1 of the movies of my hero I never saw before 2 days ago.
Talking of Richard Bradford of course.
Or maybe more B.W.
I didn't know anything about this film he made the year of my favorite of all the times, Die Hard, 1st of the name; but I thought it was average, like some of his 1st movies I saw.
And no, it's really funny, interesting, original... From Blake Edwards, it'd've been surprising if it wasn't funny at all.
I don't like the things of those times, the cars, clothes, styles... but, if I prefer westerns in other sets and a bit older times, it was interesting to see a real western mixed with a buddy movie and cop-comedy.
Another movie happening in those times I loved although all is Changeling, of the great Eastwood.
Lol at how the Oscars' ceremony was.
And I didn't see coming the reference to Chaplin, through the character of Alfie Alperin. After you see that, you realize that Alfie Alperin sounds like Charlie Chaplin.
But so, considering the dangerous psychopath he is, I couldn't see a parallel with the great Charlot, till he put a moustache looking like Charlie's one, and a big hat, and is introduced as the Hobo (the Tramp being Chaplin's main character as you know) and make a short sketch with some funny moves and stunts in the Chaplin's style.
