Powderkeg Reviews:

I just saw this film again, 28 years after I first saw it on tv in 1972. I remembered it as being a nice movie, but I thought it might be "old" by today's standards. Not so. It has a nice script, perfect direction, and fine acting all around. The "good guys" go after a Mexican bandit who has taken a passenger train hostage to insure that his brother isn't hanged in the United States. Nice action fare.


Powderkeg! was a film filmed in 1971 starring the well known actor Rod Taylor, and Dennis Cole as two boys living in the southwest just prior to WWl. It based around the premise that the pair had 'cleaned up' a couple of rough cities in self-defense, then another cities had come to them seeking support in doing the same for their communities. They had to receive 'mercenary' about this and their fee was a blank check. "If you can place a price on it, you don't need 'em terrible enough"! The two are contacted by a railroad magnate after one of his trains is hijacked, his greatest mate killed, and the mates daughter among the 73 folks being held by the Morales gang, former revolutionaries turned bandits and murderers. The leader, Chuchu, (Fernando Lamas) has taken the hostages to be exchanged for his brother, being held in a tiny city jail after a raid by the gang. The plot then centers around Brackett and Reach (Taylor and Cole) devising a plan to seize the train and gratis the hostages, which they do cleverly and successfully. The film served as the pilot for the present Bearcats!, which unfortunately, only lasted one season, mostly due to being up vs the Flip Wilson show, well established and carrying high ratings. But for one memorable season, Taylor and Cole thrilled many a young lad and sometimes even the Dads as well, with an unusual, well done present with a very original premise, unlike so much of the drivel that 'graces' TV these days! My thanks to all involved in the show, I will never forget it.


A bandit takes a train with 73 passengers hostage in order to save his brother to be hanged, the only possible solution is to hire two brave adventurers who will do the impossible to accomplish their task. One more trouble is at stake when a mexican lady (Paluzzi) decides to take revenge on the two bandit brothers. Taylor is perfect and Luciana Paluzzi pretty as ever.Taylor & Paluzzi teamed before in 1967`s western
