Duck, You Sucker (Fistful Of Dynamite)
When an Irish terrorist who has an obsession with dynamite teams up with a Mexican peasant turned revolutionary, the results are explosive! Set during the Mexican revolution of 1913, Duck, You Sucker (aka A Fistful of Dynamite) is an action-packed tale of power and politics directed and cowritten (with Luciano Vincenzoni and Sergio Donati) by Sergio Leone, the acclaimed director of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and Once Upon a Time in America.
Academy Award-Winning actor Rod Steiger plays Juan Miranda, a cigar-chomping, salt-of-the-earth peasant with a Robin Hood heart. James Coburn (Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid) costars as John Mallory, a dynamite-tossing Irish revolutionary who has fled to Mexico to practice his skills. Together, the two stage a daring break-in to liberate political prisoners, defend their compatriots against a sadistic officer's well-equipped militia and risk their lives on a train filled with explosives.
Beautifully filmed in the deserts of Spain, this remarkable film also features a brilliant and unique score by Ennio Morricone.
