The Happening (1967)

The most fantastic $3,000,000 caper that ever happened! The writing & directing team behind Cat Ballou (Frank Pierson and Elliot Silverstein, respectively) reunite for a hilarious comedy about a kidnapping turned upside down. When a bunch of beach bums (including George Maharis and Michael Parks) hold a retired Mafia kingpin (Anthony Quinn) ransom, they quickly learn that no one’s willing to pay up, which only enrages the Mafioso more. Now Quinn’s taking charge of his own abduction and he’s gonna teach these boys a thing or two about a life in crime in order to raise the cash that he thinks he’s worth. Featuring hip, jazzy dialog and a swinging theme song from The Supremes, plus a great cast and gorgeous Miami scenery, The Happening is a colorful counterculture comedy packed with laughs!

Land Raiders

When he can’t buy, he steals; when he can’t steal, he kills. Arizona, 1873. Vince (Telly Savalas), a ruthless land raider with a blind hatred for the Apache tribe plots to turn his caravan of white settlers into a makeshift military. Vince’s increased rabble rousing against the indigenous group forces his peacemaking brother (George Maharis) onto the opposite side of a conflict which is rapidly approaching its boiling point. His incited hatred will invite murder, and neither native nor newcomer alike intend to go down without a fight.
