The Clinic

Probably should've miscarried.


Rod Lott
Aussie thriller “The Clinic” begins on Christmas Eve 1979, "six years before the advent of DNA testing," the odd title read, and the visibly pregnant Beth (Tabrett Bethell, TV’s “Legend of the Seeker”) and Cameron (Andy Whitfield, TV’s “Spartacus: Blood and Sand”) are headed to spend it with her mother.

Grand Duel

To catch a Cleef.


Rod Lott
Lee Van Cleef enjoyed a secondary career in Italy cranking out spaghetti Westerns, with little regard to quality. However, 1972’s Grand Duel — aka The Big Showdown — is deserving of its Grand label.

Buck it

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

While not necessarily a duel in the traditional sense (you know, the kind where the loser dies at the end), world champion bull rider J.B. Mauney and world champion bull, Bushwacker, are set for an old-fashioned manbull showdown in PBR’s Clash of the Champions rodeo event. The bucking battle goes down 7 p.m. Saturday at Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno Ave. Tickets are $18-$103. Call 602-8700 or visit
