Here’s another one from the archives. It’s Timothy’s pivotal scene from John Flynn‘s The Outfit (1973), with a crackling screenplay by Flynn from Donald Westlake‘s novel. Tim’s ill-tempered gangster Jake Menner learns a hard lesson from bent-on-vengeance Earl Macklin (Robert Duvall).
One of Tim’s best performances in a stellar tribute to film noir. Don’t miss it!
Today, on what would have been Karen Black‘s 76th birthday, we present for this week’s video another one from the archives. It’s the trailer for John Flynn‘s gritty crime drama The Outfit (1973). It features Ms. Black and Timothy prominently.
You’ve heard me say it before, but I’ll say it again – this one is essential viewing. Enjoy!
Today’s pic is another one from John Flynn‘s The Outfit (1973). Earl Macklin (Robert Duvall) is about to put the hurt big time on mean thug Jake Menner.
Duvall has been one of our most gifted actors since the early 1960s, when he began appearing in series television, anthologies and Westerns. He hit the big time with his unforgettable turn as Boo Radley in Robert Mulligan‘s To Kill a Mockingbird (1962). Fifty-two years, one Best Actor Oscar (1983’s Tender Mercies), numerous other awards and nominations, and many classic films and performances later, he’s still going strong.
For mindless summer drive-in fare, you could hardly do better than Earl Bellamy‘s Speedtrap (1977). Here Larry Loomis, Italian gangster (??), has been sucker-punched by private eye Pete Novick (Joe Don Baker) and is none too happy about it.
Baker, from Groesbeck, Texas, has been a solid presence in films and on television for nearly fifty years. He hit the big time with Phil Karlson‘s Walking Tall (1973). Rough-and-tumble good guys like cops, cowboys and g-men are his specialty. He previously appeared with Timothy in John Flynn‘s The Outfit (1973).
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Our pic today has nothing to do with that, however, unless you count Timothy’s being half-Irish on his father’s side. At any rate, today we present a publicity still from John Flynn‘s The Outfit (1973). Nasty thug Jake Menner is in full grimace mode during the big shoot-out with Earl Macklin (Robert Duvall).
