  1. Re: the 11/05/2006 question from CapMatifu regarding the movie about four outlaw brothers with New Testiment names: This was a film entitled "THE HELLIONS", a British movie set in the Trans Vaal section of South Africa, and it did have the look of an American Western. The plot eliments most closely resimbled "HIGH NOON",starting with the fact that the outlaw father was seeking vingence against the local lawman for a past injury. The father was named John; the sons were named Matthew, Marc, Luc, and Jubal. Richard Todd played the heroic local lawman, Lionel Jefferies played the brutal father, and James Booth played the most vicious of the sons. The action departed from the "HIGH NOON" model when the whole damn town hit the street to rumble for the Constible when the chipswere down. It is a good, solid action flick, and worth the trouble if you can track down a copy (two and a half stars from Maltin; I would have said three. And, there's tuneful little theme song. Good luck on finding an opportunity to view it. Regards, Flickerfan
