Ulzana's Raid.

#1 Post by gamekeeper » Mon Mar 09, 2020 4:54 pm

I needed cheering up so I just watched a DVD of Ulzana's Raid, staring Burt Lancaster, one of my favourite Westerns, it is quite brutal for it's day but I think it is one of Burt Lancaster's best movies. Anyone else like the movie ? it doesn't seem to get mentioned much.

A good one but in that genre I prefer Valdez Is Coming.

I don't think there is one of Burt's movies I don't like. One of my favorites as a kid was "Go Tell the Spartans".

My favourite Western with Burt is "Lawman"...

Best,

Loved it....Probably shunned by Broadcast Channels because there is too much truth about how NAs acted back in the day.

I liked it. I suspect Blaine is correct. Haven't seen it on TV in quite a while.

I didn't like it that he dies in the end but still a very good western. My favorite too is "LAWMAN"
