Breakheart Pass (1975)

Charles Bronson, the catfish mustachioed tough guy whose career in such similar fare stretches back to the '60s and '50s, could play these kinds of roles in his sleep (indeed, you could argue that he sometimes did!) but his eyecatching, unconventional leading man looks and his natural quiet charisma really shine through here in this multi-faceted role.

  1. "Breakhart Pass" was based on the 1974 book by Scottish thriller writer Alistair MacLean. I think I'm right in saying it was the only Western that MacLean ever wrote.

  2. It was indeed his only western. I mention a teensy bit more about MacLean in the full review if you follow the link, but it's mainly about the film itself, being a film/DVD review - it's just been released by Eureka.

  3. Checked out your review. A fine piece. Thanks.
