Duck, You Sucker
Directed by Sergio Leone • 1971 • Italy, Spain
Starring Rod Steiger, James Coburn, Romolo Valli
The final western directed by Sergio Leone brings together Rod Steiger and James Coburn as, respectively, Juan Miranda, an amoral bandit, and John Mallory, an ex-IRA explosives expert, who unwittingly become heroes of the Mexican Revolution. The odd-couple chemistry between Steiger and Coburn, sublime Ennio Morricone score, and typically idiosyncratic directorial touches come together for one of Leone’s most explosively entertaining spectacles.
