James Mason (another favorite of mine, who doesn't get a ton of screen time; his role is brief but significant) is the wealthy father of two embarrassing sons in their twenties; one's "a moron" as Mason aptly calls him but employs him nonetheless (simply because no one else would), and the other a ne'er-do-well who thinks he's a sharper stick than he actually is (they're played by James Fox and John Alderton). Overhearing Mason on a phone call to Spain, the sons learn that dad is planning to ship a million pounds sterling (back then approx.Read more ›
here completely; before everything went commercial and dark. The landscape
exposed in this trippy-caper is Hellerwonderful. The long shot goodbye
conversation between Coburn and York is simply brilliant. Coburn
steals the movie in all ways with his hipness. If you caught part of it
late at night in the Seventies and loved it; you will bath in its campness
and coolness now. The soundtrack is worth it alone! Just Be...Just Be...
This movie will transport you to a time when real actors captured your attention and held on to it until the film concluded with a bang.
Jim Coburn is at the top of his game as the aging hippy, Duffy. Duffy is pulled into a crime caper by the sons of James Mason who want to get back at dad to the tune of stealing dad's hard earned loot. Mason is ice cold as the regretful dad of two morons who aren't fit to tie his shoelaces but are intelligent enough to recruit Duffy into pulling off the audacious theft. Susannah York is on hand as the sexy foil who comes between Duffy and Mason's sons and........nah! That would be telling.
I'll leave the nifty ending to the viewer to savor. Enjoy!
with a killer smile. He was ready to kick ass or get all zen on you, depending on the occasion. This film sports excellent cinematography of the Mediterranean & a super-cool bachelor pad soundtrack. Films like Austin Powers are trying vainly to re-create what this pulls off effortlessly. It's a psychedelic put-on. How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people? Indeed!
From when I first saw this as a kid, I was astounded by Duffy's Tangiers pad, decorated w/ strange art & sculptures. This film catches a special moment where the counter culture met the swingers, the beatniks & original hipsters passed the baton to the hippies, and even the rich, society people wanted to get in on the scene and dance to the Les McCann-like grooves. Everyone gets used & uses everyone else. The ending is classic, & if you're not smiling, then you don't get the '60's or Coburn-cool.
. This is s cool, fun and very entertaining film, with a great supporting cast: James Fox, James Mason and Susannah York. The score alternates between upbeat rock and cool jazz, at times a combination of the two. It's an entertaining caper film of the highest order, with Coburn recruited by James Fox, brother John Alderton and girlfriend S. York to steal a huge shipment of cash belonging to their father James Mason on the high seas. "Duffy" is amusing, psychedelic, colorful and just plain fun, with an interesting plot twist at the very end. It also features a cool theme sung by Lou R a w l s, "I'm Satisfied" : "As long as I can dig the ride/I'm satisfied." Highly recommended!
