Dusters Down Under: Part 9: The Proposition

11 Mar

I’ve been somewhat reticent in placing The Proposition among my Dusters Down Under. It certainly qualifies as a Western, and it’s a well made film, but it’s excessive violent and brutal scenes is something that I would warn others about – and of which I believe has negatively impacted it’s popularity.

Be forewarned.

Notice anything about these posters? Kirk Douglas – among the greatest Western Film actors of all time, and who has an important and prominent role in the movie (two roles in fact!!) receives next to no Billing or on the posters. ????
