Red Sun (Charles Bronson/Ursula Andress) - Preview

Red Sun

Preview by Jack Foley

To celebrate the release of Red Sun – coming to newly restored DVD and Blu-ray on October 19, 2015 – we have a copy on Blu-ray to giveaway!

Red Sun is one of the wildest, and weirdest westerns ever made, where a cowboy and a samurai team up on a revenge mission.

Hollywood hard man Charles Bronson, from Once Upon a Time in the West and The Dirty Dozen, plays The Gunfighter. French crime film superstar Alain Delon, from Le Samourai and Le Cercle Rouge, plays The Outlaw.

Sex symbol Ursula Andress, famous for that iconic beach scene in Dr No plays The Tigress. And Japanese screen legend Toshiro Mifune, from Seven Samurai and Throne of Blood, plays The Samurai!

Together they were billed as ‘The greatest fighting force the West has ever known.’ It’s an audacious line-up that works beautifully.

It’s also rated by no less an authority than Quentin Tarantino as one of the best spaghetti westerns ever made, alongside the likes of The Good, The Bad and the Ugly and A Fistful of Dollars.

Director Terence Young made the very first Bond film, Dr No, in 1962, and went on to make From Russia With Love and Thunderball.

This was the second of three films Charles Bronson would make in a row with Young (including Cold Sweat and The Valachi Papers), before Bronson would team up with Michael Winner, first for westerns and then the infamous Death Wish films.

Synopsis

Charles Bronson and Alain Delon are robbers who hold up a train and steal a shipment of gold, and a samurai sword the Japanese ambassador was to present to the president.

When Bronson is double crossed by his partner, he joins forces with the ambassador’s sole remaining samurai guard, Toshiro Mifune, to hunt down his treacherous Delon.
