My Favorite Westerns

A Celebration of Western Movies … Pardner!

The Vikings (1958)

The Vikings Theme / Mario Nascimbene

Always a film favorite of mine. I’ve watched it several times.
And will again. That places it as a Film Classic for me.

The Climactic Fight (BIG spoiler!)

“How he hastens to his death.”

We all know that Kirk could handle himself, but we might not know that
Tony Curtis was also very athletic and one of the
|best sword Action fighters in filmdom.
This fight scene with Viking broadsword doesn’t really showcase his skills,
|but it’s still a brilliantly choreographed piece of Action Filming from 1958.

“Why did he hesitate?”

If you’ve never seen The Vikings, don’t hesitate.
Great Stars, great Action, great writing, dialogue, cinematography … everything.

Great stuff.

  1. I’ve always loved the music. It has a beautiful score.

      It was – and still is – truly powerful. A great movie all around.

  2. Kirk gets his eye clawed out by Tony’s hawk but this still doesn’t stop him going out drinking the same night. Dead hard or what?

    I see my blog entry on that Kirk Douglas film Ace in the Hole a few weeks back must have prompted you to do a blog entry on a Kirk Douglas film 🙂 Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂

      Kirk is a favorite around here. One of the great Western Film Actors – but also a great Action actor.
