I love western movies with storylines based in Mexico. I was not disappointed by this copy of this very rare gem.

I think that George Pepperd was great in the movie, and the setting was also brilliant.

Would recommend to any one who loves the wester genre, especially those set in Mexico.

This widescreen edition is in good condition.

Good, solid, action-packed western perfect for a rainy day, or anytime for good, meat and potatoes western movie fans. Item arrived in great condition, good dvr-quality picture. Peppard was always a rather underrrated action star of the late 60's early 70's. Entertaining film all the way around!

After the Euro Western changed the look and feel of the genre in the mid sixties, everyone wanted to get on the bandwagon and it didn't take long for Hollywood to try and capitalize on it also. Utilizing American and European crews and actors, a handful of mediocre product was shot in Spain and Mexico of which this 'CANNON FOR CORDOBA'-1970 is a standout. George Peppard hones his Hannibal Smith cigar chomping 'A TEAM' character by portraying an agent for the US Army hired to enlist his own band of cut throats into a suicide mission to infiltrate Mexican revolutionary bandit Cordoba's fortress and take out his artillery and especially, his prized cannons. The film tried to capture the feel of the political westerns of its day and resembles Director Don Taylor's Euro Western 'THE FIVE MAN ARMY'-1969 with touches of Director Robert Aldrich's 'THE DIRTY DOZEN'- 1967 but never seems to grip the viewer as it should. Perhaps because it is directed by Paul Wendkos who is known for his television efforts and would go on to helm the excellent occult thriller 'THE MEPHISTO WALTZ- 1970. He tries to bring a grittiness to the proceedings such as some minor scenes of torture and blood letting but the photography by Antonio Macasoli is to pretty and lush for this type of affair. The film combines Euro and American actors such as Don Gordan, cult actor Pete Duel in a great role, Raf Vallone chewing the scenery as the villain Cordoba, and Gabriele Tinti who was married to actress Laura Gemser and,unfortunately, doesn't show up for this party. Keen Euro viewers will also spot Aldo Sambrell, beautiful Francine York, Giovanna Ralli who graced many a spaghetti western, and Hammer actress Kate O'Mara. The music by Elmer Bernstein is as lackluster as the film and not one of his memorable scores.Read more ›
