The Train Robbers (1973)

Pax and Michael talk about John Wayne, Ann-Margret, Ricardo Montalban, and how twist endings can save a movie. On the subject of train robbers, Michael also briefly reviews One More Train to Rob (1971) starring George Peppard and Diana Muldaur. And Pax recounts his hunt for the details around a Western-themed childhood mystery.

  1. Christopher George. Was in 3-4 movies with John Wayne, and became friends with him during filming of "El Dorado" (1965) where he played a villain. He also ran around a desert (North Africa though) on TV for a few years on "The Rat Patrol" which is the main thing I remember him from.

    For an ahistorical semi-western with Errol Flynn and Olivia De Havilland there is "They Died With Their Boots On". That movie might be a good lead in for starting the John Ford Cavalry Trilogy since "Fort Apache" pretty much has a Custer analog going in Henry Fonda's character.
