I have been trying to track down a Western that I saw on television about 20 years ago. I’ve tried google, IMDB, etc, but they all usually suggest The Magnificent Seven. So I have then asked people who have seen TMS and it doesn’t seem to be the right movie.
I will start with the details that I am least positive about, and then list the details I recall clearly.
‘The Unsure Details’
-The main character, male, was bald.
-He wore a black hat.
Ok. Not much to go on there.
‘The Less Unsure Details’
-The male lead character had an odd type of rifle. It had a magazine that fed horizontaly through the top of the rifle. Cross feed? If you’ve seen it, you’d know it.
-In the last chamber of the magazine, instead of a rifle cartridge, he loaded a thin cigar. I think at least twice in the movie, after shooting all the bad guys, he pulled the cigar from the magazine and lit up.
-There was another character who was, I think, on the smoking cowboys side. This second guy’s gimmick was that he used ball bearings as weapons. He had an indentation in the top of his boot, into which he would drop a ball bearing, and then flick/kick it at things.
-At one point this second character hides in a well, holding himself in place with his back against one side and his feet against the other.
-There was also a woman involved. All that I recall of her was that she got into a struggle with a man, and then he fell out of a window.
Ok. That’s all I’ve got. No plot. No names. Nothing else. If any of those details ring a bell with anyone, could you please let me know. Even if you can’t help with the movie name, it would be nice to know that this is a real movie - I’ve had so much trouble finding it, I have wondered if I may have started watching something, then fell asleep and dreamed the rest.
