The Professionals

Ralph Bellamy's wife Claudia Cardinale has been kidnapped by Mexican Jack Palance. Lee Marvin leads a group of men paid to bring her back. Also starring Burt Lancaster, Robert Ryan and Woody Strode, directed by Richard Brooks.

It's a good western, following in the footsteps of The Magnificent Seven. It's a well-written script. The film looks great. So does Claudia Cardinale. Lancaster steals the show. Ryan is underused.
