    I was the only one in the audience when this film came out. I remember the music by Ennio Morricone, how it set the mood. Powerful performance by Marlon Brando, and a great supporting role by the revolutionary created by Sir Walker. Film has much to say how business dictates foreign policy. The creation Sir Walker unleashes and then tries to destroy his own invention has a tragic tone to it. Brandos character feels he has such a command of forces of revolution and ultimately has no real clue of the forces he set in motion, and pays the price at the end. Film is beautifully shot. Somehow Haiti comes to mind, an Island that rebelled against it slave owners, and was punished for its audacity of doing so.

  • A Marxist Swashbuckler!

    Marlon Brando gave his favourite performance as Sir Willaim Walker, the veddy-British secret agent who comes to a tiny Carribean slave colony to free the oppressed. He's a hero... or is he? You see, it's actually cheaper to hire people for slave wages than go to the trouble of owning them... especially when you need sugar for a nation of tea-drinkers. It's 1970 folks, and this movie, which would have probably been an Errol Flynn swashbuckler 10 years before, was made by a couple of Communists! A great movie, and a real curiosity for political film fans.
