Billed as the first East meets West Western, and directed by Terence Young, RED SUN is based on a true story from the American Wild West of 1870, when paths cross for an outlaw (Charles Bronson, The Dirty Dozen), a gunfighter (Alain Delon, Le Samourai), a prostitute (Ursula Andress, Dr No) and a Samurai warrior (Toshiro Mifune, Rashomon). Bronson plays Link, a train robber forced by the Japanese Ambassador to help regain a priceless sword stolen by Link's double crossing partner Gauche (Delon). Accompanied by Kuroda (Mifune), the Ambassador's bodyguard, he travels the West in pursuit, along the way stopping in a brothel to pick up Gauche's girlfriend (Andress) as hostage. Kuroda plans to kill Gauche straight away with the sword itself, to redeem his honour, but Link needs him alive to find the loot from their last robbery. Joined uneasily together with a common goal they have only seven days to find Gauche or Kuroda must die by his own sword. Synopsis It is the 19th century, and two criminals, Link and Gotch, have a falling out after robbing a train. As a result, Gotch not only takes off with the money, but with a priceless golden sword owned by a Samurai passenger named Kuroda. Despite their cultural differences and initial hostility, Kuroda and Link pair up to find Gotch. The vengeful duo eventually track him down--only to find that a violent twist of events will change their lives forever... The great Toshiro Mifune is an excellent match for the stoic Bronson under the direction of James Bond regular Terence Young (Dr No etc) and there's a score from Maurice Jarre. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
