The Professionals posters
The Professionals / Laurel Award
When they cast The Professionals, someone obviously had a vision of my perfect film cast. Just look at those names on the poster. It’s what the word ‘powerhouse’ was invented for.
What could be finer than watching Lee Marvin picking off guys with a pistol whilst hoisting a machine gun on his shoulders; Woody Strode calmly firing off a volley of arrows attached with lit dynamite; and Burt Lancaster doing, well, basically whatever he wants over the course of the film? and not forgetting Jack Palance, who despite being shot multiple times still gets to ride into the sunset with Claudia Cardinale.

Hi Paul …. Welcome!
Good call – The Professionals is my all time Favorite. Yes, a stunning cast – a great story – inspired dialogue – brilliantly written and told. Most of the major players are iconic Western actors. Never get tired of this one.
