For the better part of his career, Burt Lancaster was an especially robust physical specimen. John Wayne may have seemed like he could crush you with a calloused thumb, but Lancaster, who was also an accomplished acrobat, had the build of a world-class athlete.
It must have been difficult for such a performer to finally admit that he was getting old, but Lancaster did just that in Valdez Is Coming , a densely plotted Western that's brimming over with vibrant performances.http://ocoo.staging.ctrlweb.ca/of-revelation-and-revolution-volume-2-the.php
Valdez Is Coming
The script's rather antiquated moralizing -- remember, hip "movie brats" had already begun to seize control of Hollywood by -- can't hide the fact that this is a first-rate crew of actors wringing every bit of emotion they can out of what was fast becoming an extinct genre. Lancaster stars as Bob Valdez, an aging, scrupulously honest Mexican-American Marshall who's coerced into killing a black man who's falsely accused of murder.
In a symbolic move worthy of a Sergio Leone character, Frank Tanner Jon Cypher , the wealthy rancher who manipulated Valdez, ties a cross on Valdez's back and leaves him to wander the desert, hoping he'll die out there. Valdez escapes this situation, however, then kidnaps Tanner's mistress Susan Clark and seeks bloody revenge. You better stay focused while you watch this - there are enough twists and turns for three less-ambitious movies.

Lancaster was so impressed with Leonard's storyline, he agreed to co-produce the picture with Steiner. Lancaster initially intended to play the evil Tanner, with Marlon Brando playing Valdez. Sydney Pollack was set to direct, and David Rayfiel began work on the script.

But that would all change. He kidnaps Cypher's mistress Susan Clark to force the rancher's hand. At first, Cypher is able to rally a group of tough hombres against Valdez, but one by one they side with the marshal. Director Edwin Sherin, who'd helmed the Broadway production of The Great White Hope, makes several rather anachronistic points regarding the film's racial issues; on the other hand, Valdez is Coming is one of the most-authentic looking westerns ever made-right down to the deglamorization of Susan Clark, who in a s film might have looked as though she'd just visited a frontier branch of Max Factor.
