The Man Called Noon (Peter Collinson, 1973)
« on: 09 Jul 2010 - 18:33 »

A british/spanish/italian co-production, coming from Odeon Entertainment on August 23...



A gunslinger known as The Man Called Noon (Richard Crenna) loses his memory after being shot during a surprise attack. As he searches for his identity, it becomes clear that he is on a mission to avenge the deaths of his wife and child. He meets and befriends outlaw R. B. Rimes (Stephen Boyd) and he receives comfort from a lady named Fan (Rosanna Schiaffino). Together, they try to piece together the clues and discover who shot him and just who he is. The villain proves to be Judge Niland (Farley Granger), and the trio go to extraordinary lengths to put him out of action.

It was previously cut in the U.K.

Horse falls maybe?

The BBFC database says "details are not available" regarding the cuts.. . no info on the Odeon disc yet, fingers crossed it will be uncut.

It concerns me that it doesn't say "Previous cuts waived" as it could be the same cut version resubmitted.

I didn't notice that. I reckon it will be uncut as I can't imagine them submitting a pre-cut print. At least I hope not..

Phil H will be publishing a review of this DVD on SWDB very soon

Watched the film a few years ago
Can't say that it made much of an impression
Story is based on a Louis Lamour novel, so they say, but I imediately thought of Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Identity: it's the familiar story about loss of memory, a man who thinks he's a ruthless killer etc.
Maybe Ludlum copied his story from Louis Lamour

There are quite a few films on the BBFC website that have had cuts waived but there is no mention of the fact.The cuts were certainly originally for violence as they rarely cut horsefalls before the release of Heaven's Gate & The Long Riders in 1980.

I watched this a month ago from a VHS source and there was not much violence, almost no blood and no nudity.  I could not fathom how it was rated R by the MPAA.  Did I see a cut version?

I've only seen the Movies4Men print shown on UK satelite TV & I'm not 100% sure if their print is uncut.It does seem quite a tame film & the BBFC often cut films that were given a 'PG' in the states even if they were given an 'X' here !.

I just watched this via the new UK Odeon disc and it looks great.  I had never seen this film before and was blown away by the incredible looking shots/landscapes on display.  Some seriously epic visuals that must be seen to be believed.  The audio on this DVD is weak and muffled sounding though, and I had to rewind a few times to hear the dialogue.  There were a few violent scenes, including horses falling and death by gunshots + blood.  But overall it's a pretty tame movie compared to many of the genre.  Definitely one of my new favorite SWs.

Watched it this afternoon for the first time, thought it was pretty good. As I said before I was dubious about getting the U.K. disc so bought the Spanish one.
