5.0 out of 5 stars Pedro on sledge
"A Man Called Sledge" is a superb exciting western with James Garner absolutely convincing as an initially unsympathetic gold-hungry outlaw who gradually realises other things are worth more only when he has lost them. Ruthless in his pursual of apparently unstealable gold he becomes even more ruthless in his revenge against his unsavoury gang after they betray him...

5.0 out of 5 stars Pedro on sledge, 16 Sep 2010
This review is from: Man Called Sledge [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
"A Man Called Sledge" is a superb exciting western with James Garner absolutely convincing as an initially unsympathetic gold-hungry outlaw who gradually realises other things are worth more only when he has lost them. Ruthless in his pursual of apparently unstealable gold he becomes even more ruthless in his revenge against his unsavoury gang after they betray him. Sterling support from Western stalwarts Claude Akins and Dennis Weaver and from John Marley as the epitome of greed. Can't recommend it too highly.

This review is from: Man Called Sledge [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This movie was first released in 1970(1998)2004 in Widescreen 2.40.1, Technicolour and runs 92 minutes. The sound and picture quality are very good. The film starts with 2 masked men robbing a stage wagon in the thick of snow and the two men escape with the money after a shoot out. They ride towards 3 W's. Sledge (JAMES GARNER) and Mallery walk into the saloon and wonder how the driver of the stage got shot. Sledge thinks it was pure accident. While Mallery goes and wins every poker game, Sledge sees a woman. Mallery is shot on his back and Sledge goes downstairs and shoots the 2 guilty men. The Old Man(JOHN MARLEY), watching says , he had seen murder and self defence. Next day, Sledge is off on his own in the snow, but followed by the Old Man. Sledge soon catches the Old Man, but he denies he was following Sledge. He says, he was following the Gold worth $300,000, that was kept in the prison overnight. Sledge takes the Old Man to Jade, who runs a hotel. They meet Ward(DENNIS WEAVER) and Hooker(CLAUDE AKINS). He gets the men ready. They head for Rockville. When the Old Man was buying the ammunition, the local sheriff Ribley gets interested. Sledge and Hooker intervene and there is a gunfight in which the deputy is shot. Using the sheriff and horses as shield, they leave town. Sledge meets his men and discusses the route the Gold takes and then try to find a weakness, where they can take the Gold. From the hills, they watch the Gold and the soldiers. Sledge goes and tries to get as close as he can to the Gold convoy, and there is an immediate response from the soldiers. Sledge returns and puts to his men that the Gold may have to be taken from the inside.
How will it end? Will Sledge get agreement amongst his man to take the Gold? Can it really be done with such an re-inforcement around the Gold? What will sheriff Ribley do to revenge his deputy's death? Does the Old Man remember the inside of the prison? Can Sledge make a plan to steal the Gold? Will there be infighting?
This story of VIC MORROW is well photographed in Widescreen by LUIGI KUVEILLER and well directed in spaghetti style with loud background music, by VIC MORROW. James Garner gives a very good performance.
JAMES GARNER(JAMES SCOTT BUMGARNER) was born on 7.4.1928 in Norman, Oklahoma. His mother was 1/2 Cherokee, but died when he was 5 years old.
