THE PROFESSIONALS (1966)

GREAT ACTION: TUESDAY 21ST MAY AT 1PM

Burt Lancaster and Lee Marvin headline the top-notch, rip-roaring Western action/adventure.

Four soldiers of fortune are hired by a wealthy Texan oil baron (Ralph Bellamy) to rescue his kidnapped wife (Claudia Cardinale), who’s been spirited across the Mexican Border by a band of mercenaries led by Jesus Raza (Jack Palance).

The four rugged professionals, each regarded as a specialist in his selected field – an expert marksman and tracker, the explosives master(Lancaster), horse handler (Robert Ryan) and one skilled in tactics and weaponry (Marvin) – make their way across the treacherous landscape but discover all is not what it seems in the explosive climax.

Excellent performances from an all-star cast, Maurice Jarre’s haunting musical score and surprising plot twists make this film a true classic which garnered three Academy Award nominations.
