Editorial Reviews

Academy Award(r)-winner James Coburn (1998, Best Supporting Actor, Affliction) is at his coolest and suavest in this delightful caper that brings back the Swingin' Sixties in all their groovy finery. He's a retired master thief who agrees to steal $2,000,000 in bank notes from one of tycoon James Mason's ships, said loot to be turned over to Mason's venal sons (James Fox and John Alderton). There's also an added perk in the comely person of liberated Susannah York. Lovingly filmed in Spain by director Robert Parrish (The Mob) and co-written by Donald Cammell (Performance), this is sexy escapism at its psychedelic finest. Newly remastered.

[DUFFY - (1968)] Fresh off a run of highly successful and enjoyable films ('Our Man Flint', 'Dead Heat On A Merry Go Round', 'In Like Flint' and 'The President's Analyst'), James Coburn scores again in 'Duffy', a crime caper with its tongue planted firmly in its cheek. It's more a homage to the late 60's time period itself, though I doubt director Robert Parrish was aware of this when filming, being rife with all the cool accoutrements of the psychedelic era. Coburn, though no means a kin of the 60's himself, appeared to be an emblem of all that was hip, escapist, cool and groovy at that time without seeming lame, stupid or out of place. Both adults as well as the youth found him suave, fetching and 'with it', and this film, along with those listed above, were solid reasons why. This time out, he's just one step short of campy and kitschy, but manages to avert this pratfall nicely. As only he could. It's a symbiotic relationship we have here - he's having fun with this role, so we're having fun with it too. Albeit lightweight, it's comic, breezy, engaging and festive all around. And it's laden with enough eye-candy to keep even the sweetest tooth pacified.

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.

This is a time piece unparalleled. The loose feel of the Sixties is captured
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...

A fantastic slice of hipness from the sixties that captures the flavor of it's time in a magical way.
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!

I wore out my videocassette of this one. Coburn really owned the late 60's as the action guy
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.

"Duffy" with James Coburn, of all the films he was in during the Sixties, because even more than the "Our Man Flint" films and "The President's Analyst," is my favorite because it defined his screen persona during that decade as the cool, well-traveled "international man of mystery," his own defining moment
. 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!
