Thanks to Colin for this terrific shot of Terence Stamp in the 1968 western BLUE, a lost rarity now it seems, not seen in decades or available anywhere. I saw it at the time though.
Stamp though is laughably unstoppable, a virtual cyborg laying waste to Fonda’s minions, including that poor guy who is tossed over the balcony …. till he finally gets to confront Fonda himself. The clips from Loach’s film are well-used, but the Stamp there is not the same character here; and Lesley Anne Warren is good support. I did not recognise Warhol’s Joe till I re-ran it. A neat, brisk little thriller then, Limey of course being American slang for an Englishman; Terry indulges in his own English-speak to confuse those Yanks.
