The Magnificent Seven

Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai serves as the template for an American western masterpiece. A gang of savage bandits led by the evil Calvera (Eli Wallach) terrorizes a Mexican village. The townspeople have one last hope: hire seven gunslingers to save them! A stellar, star-studded cast of Yul Brenner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn, Horst Buchholz, James Coburn and Brad Dexter ride in as The Magnificent Seven. An iconic Elmer Bernstein score rounds out the courageous classic. They were only seven but they fought like seven hundred!

“This film may well be the best western of 1960.” – TIME Magazine

“A heap of fine acting and some crackling good direction by John Sturges” – Variety
