Experience one of the best classic Italian Westerns at the Alamo with an ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT Spaghetti Option (NOT included in the ticket) on our menu! 

Sergio Corbucci's influential 1966 spaghetti Western, long unseen in theatres, inspired Quentin Tarantino (RESERVOIR DOGS' infamous ear-cutting scene is a direct reference) and is now being tributed in Tarantino's newest, DJANGO UNCHAINED. It's time to revisit the original that spawned over 30 sequels and cemented the genre as an international phenomenon. Starring Franco Nero as the title character, a horseless, dark-clad, blazingly blue-eyed stranger dragging a coffin through the mud of a desolate frontier town, DJANGO mixes up a bloody ragù of Confederates, bandidos, Klansmen, dance hall gals, and a bloody trail of too-slow-on-the-draw bad men. Says Time Out: "Rates alongside [Sergio] Leone's Dollars trilogy as one of the daddies of the spaghetti Western.... Corbucci's style is a mix of social realism, highly decorative visuals, and finely mounted action sequences. For the rest, there are enough mud-wrestling prostitutes, whippings, ear-loppings, explosions and scenes of wholesale slaughter to keep any muchacho happy. Funny, visceral, bloody, no-nonsense entertainment with a touch of class." In Italian. (Fully subtitled)

As April winds down and, with it, our tribute to car movies - I want to talk a little bit not just about the remaining films (and intimidating trilogy in its own right: Bullitt, Death Proof and Two-Lane Blacktop), but about the films that we weren’t able to program this time around.  If you haven’t seen Steve McQueen in Le Mans, you should do that.  Right now.  I mean it.

I met Ms. Hedren in the lounge of Elway's on the first floor of Denver's Ritz-Carlton. We talked about her new pursuits and her "second career" in the movies, though we started as most any conversation with Tippi Hedren must: with her time with Hitchcock.
