THE WIND AND THE LION
1975, Warner Bros., 119 min, USA, Dir: John Milius

THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING
1975, Warner Bros., 129 min, USA, Dir: John Huston

Michael Caine and Sean Connery are two British soldier-pals trying to bamboozle high priests of remote Kafiristan into turning over their riches by convincing them that Connery is a god. With Christopher Plummer as Rudyard Kipling (whose short story inspired the film).


ZARDOZ
1974, 20th Century Fox, 105 min, UK, Dir: John Boorman

The title of this cult sci-fi favorite derives from THE WIZARD OF OZ, and from the sight of Sean Connery’s red-suspendered Speedo costume, it’s clear that we’re not in Kansas anymore. In one of his first post-Bond films, Connery plays Zed, an Exterminator who helps keep the race of Brutals in line for their rulers, the Eternals, in a post apocalyptic Earth society. With Charlotte Rampling.
