Editorial Reviews

James Garner (TV's "Maverick" and "The Rockford Files"), in a decidedly different change-of-pace role, is a ruthless outlaw who leads his gang of thieves in search of a fortune in gold in this explosive western adventure. Sledge (Garner) learns of a gold cache stored in a prison fortress and gathers his gang to pursue the loot. Against a backdrop of double crosses, dirty dealings and revenge, their gold lust end in a hail of bullets, two-fisted action and cold-blooded murder. An offbeat spaghetti western in the tradition of Sam Peckinpah, A MAN CALLED SLEDGE was directed and co-written by famed screen heavy, actor Vic Morrow.

Customer Reviews

It was a very good movie for western fans.
Evan Pitts
I have always liked James Garner as an actor and have followed most all of his TV and movies that he starred in.
Alan Carnahan
If that doesn't make much sense then you now know the problem with this movie.

A Man Called Sledge stars James Garner as Luther Sledge, an outlaw who attempts to lead his gang in a robbery of an enormous gold shipment guarded by a Gatling gun and a cavalry company. Claude Akins, Dennis Weaver, and John Marley as gang members with other recognizable faces from other spaghetti westerns. Not one of the best westerns made in Italy, but very entertaining. Very pessimistic ending. An excellent musical score( as is typical with spaghetti westerns although it isn't Ennio Morricone). Garner is very good as the lead role, a part similar to his role in Hour of the Gun as Wyatt Earp. Well worth the price!

There's a cache of gold stored in that there prison, and notorious outlaw Luther Sledge wants it. The trouble is - how do you rob a gold wagon when it's either locked up in a state prison or is being escorted by forty professionally trained sharpshooters? James Garner plays the title character in A MAN CALLED SLEDGE, a kind of good spaghetti western/big heist hybrid that was written and co-directed by actor Vic Morrow.

The movie treats us to an extended introduction to Sledge before bothering to get to the plot proper. Luther Sledge is the grimmest western character I've seen Garner play, and his foray to the dark side had me worried for a while. Sledge has none of the easy charm of Bret Maverick, or either lead character in Garner's "Support Your Local..." movies. Garner is second only to Cary Grant in his ability to charm his way through a movie. It's that ability - and Jack Elam - that make the "Support Your Local..." movies so much fun. Even cast against type Garner, though, is the best thing about this movie.

If everything in this movie were as good as Garner this one would be a classic. The wide-screen desert location photography, if not quite a feast for the eyes, is certainly a hearty snack. Co-stars Dennis Weaver and Claude Akins were veteran character actors who'd proven in the past they could work up to the material. Unfortunately their characters are underwritten, making of them something less than clichés. The character underwritten to practical invisibility belongs to poor Laura Antonelli, who plays Sledge's love interest. Although their love plays an increasingly important role in the plot, she isn't in the film for more that a couple of brief scenes.

Although this is a spaghetti western and overall a good one starring James Garner, Dennis Weaver, Calude Adkins and Wayde Preston. The movie may not be the most famous, but I loved it from the start to the end, James Garner is awesome in this movie. It kind of keeps you in suspense from the beginning to the end when they try to get the gold and then escape. This is a must have for western fans or James Garner fans.

Format: DVD
This 95 minute 1970 western stars James Garner and Dennis Weaver, both with mustaches, both gunfighters, and robbers, is an enjoyable film. Garner is the boss of a gang of seven men, including himself. Garner hears from an old man about three hundred dollars in gold being held in a strong safe in a prison. He figures out that if he were taken as a prisoner, he and his men could release the over five hundred prisoners, and while the officials are trying to collect the prisoners, he and his men can steal the gold. But, as a song sung during the film says, there is a curse that goes along with other men's gold. Matters go wrong because of love, hate, greed, and gambling.

I love this movie and it is what I would call old school, full of gold guns girls and double crosses. Also in my opinion it has a great musical score.
