Product Overview

After serving 12 years behind bars for armed robbery, tough guy Hank McCain finds himself the pawn of a ruthless mob runt's rebellion against a high level don. When McCain discovers that he's been betrayed and abandoned by his new employer, he retaliates with a high stakes Las Vegas casino heist that erupts into all-out war on the streets of Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York. Not blood, nor lust, nor wedding vows can come between McCain and his money...or his machine gun. This long-unavailable gangster classic explodes on the screen with spectacular scenes of shocking violence, an unforgettable score by Ennio Morricone (THE UNTOUCHABLES), and an all-star cast featuring Academy Award nominees John Cassavetes (THE DIRTY DOZEN), Peter Falk (COLUMBO), and Gena Rowlands (THE NOTEBOOK). Co-starring beautiful Bond girl Britt Ekland (THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN) and cult fave Florinda Bolkan (DON'T TORTURE A DUCKLING), Blue Underground is proud to present MACHINE GUN McCAIN in a gorgeous new High Definition transfer for the first time ever on home video!

Editors Note
Note A hardened criminal learns there's little loyalty on either side of the law in this drama from Italian director Giuliano Montaldo. Charlie Adamo (Peter Falk) is a rough-hewn but ambitious underworld kingpin who has taken control of the West Coast syndicates and wants a piece of the action in Las Vegas. Adamo's boss Don Francesco DeMarco (Gabriele Ferzetti) isn't happy about his plans to take over The Royal, a posh casino and hotel that's owned by the mob, and he's determined to put Adamo in his place. Meanwhile, a handful of young gangsters are plotting to rob The Royal of $2 million, and one of them, Jack (Pierluigi Apra), know just the right man for the job -- his father Hank McCain (John Cassavetes), better known as "Machine Gun McCain," currently serving a life sentence after a crime spree put him in prison twelve years earlier. The mob arranges for McCain to be released, and Jack escorts him to Las Vegas, where he runs into Irene (Britt Ekland), a young woman he meets in a bar and impulsively marries. McCain plans and pulls off an ingenious casino robbery, but he pulled the heist after his backers ordered him to abandon the robbery, and soon he's one of several characters on the run from the law and the mafia. John Cassavetes and Peter Falk struck up a friendship while working on GLI INTOCCABILI (aka MACHINE GUN MCCAIN), and it was the first of several films the two actors would make together, most under the direction of Cassavetes, including HUSBANDS, A WOMAN UNDER THE INFLUENCE and BIG TROUBLE.
Reviews
Sight and Sound "Adroitly mixing stylish Roman interiors with colourful location work, fast paced and featuring a ridiculously snappy Ennio Morricone dirge...it all adds up to an attractive footnote to Cassavetes' career." 11/01/2010
