Synopsis : One of the all time great westerns, The Magnificent 7 has become a staple of Sunday afternoon TV and rightly so with its classic tale of good guys Vs bad buys. A small Mexican village is being terrorised by bandits, there only hope of survival is to try and hire some protection. First to be recruited and to become the leader of the 7 is Chris (Yul Brinner), then Steve McQueen joins up followed by a cast that includes James Coburn, Charles Bronson and Robert Vaughn. The 7 set about training the farmers and villagers and fortifying the village from the bandits, Eli Wallach plays the bandit leader and is perfectly cast as the evil sneering bandito. Elmer Bernsteins score has become a classic and adds to the heroism of the film, while director John Sturges keeps the action running fast and the story tight. One point to remember for all those trivia quizzes, the two actors that always get forgotten from the 7 are, Brad Dexter and Horst Buchholz.
