Western : The Magnificent Seven (1960)

The Magnificent Seven (1960)

I watched "The Magnificent Seven" (1960) for the first time in at least a decade and found I still loved it. I still recall going to the drive-in back in the early 60's and seeing it for the first time. I would swear I see something new I missed during past viewings.

Re: The Magnificent Seven (1960)

I absolutely LOVE LOVE this movie. I think Steve McQueen is one of the coolest guys ever. I've seen this movie a million times and never tire from it. I just recently showed it to my thirteen year old son for the first time the other day and he loved it. He thought Chris (Yul Brenner) was cooler than Vine (McQueen, but other than that we were in complete accord. I love introducing movies and shows from my childhood not only to my son but to my husband as well. My husband had never seen Magnificent Seven until we were married. I don't mind telling you how shocking it was to find out how lacking his education was. LOL!

It sure hits the spot!

Re: The Magnificent Seven (1960)

I always loved the knife throwing scene between James Coburn and Bob Wilke.

Re: The Magnificent Seven (1960)

Great bit. Wilke was a great screen and television villain.

Re: The Magnificent Seven (1960)

It used to be my third favorite Western, great scenes, like the earlier poster said, the one with Wilkie's gun vs Coburn's knife.

Re: The Magnificent Seven (1960)

It lacks an edge, a very safe western which makes it for me a bit boring.

Re: The Magnificent Seven (1960)

I like the 1960 Mag/Seven better than you do, know you're coming from. The actors are great, the photography is stunning, the music beyond praise. These three factors make the movie work for me more than the story itself. I just can't buy it. There's an unreality to it, and a lack of depth in many of the characterizations. Because of the masterful direction of John Dturges, the movie commands my respect, and yet I have little real affection for it.

Re: The Magnificent Seven (1960)

I'm introducing a friend to classic films, and told him to watch this one. He loved it.

Re: The Magnificent Seven (1960)

if you like the knife fight you should watch the big gun down especially the ending

Re: The Magnificent Seven (1960)

The Big Gundown (1966) rules! Drastically underated, awesome soundtrack. Classic spaghetti western.
