Grand Duel

To catch a Cleef.


Western

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. No wonder Quentin Tarantino borrowed its sweeping theme song by Luis Bacalov for Kill Bill; you'll recognize it in two notes.

Love Is All You Need

When brokenhearted, middle-aged people assemble for a wedding in Italy, that’s amore.


Drama

Rod Lott
On paper — or computer screen — Love Is All You Need sounds like an overdose of saccharine. Even swallowing just a few plot keywords could trigger symptoms: “widower,” “wedding” and “breast cancer.”

OKG7 cups of something warm

Grab something that warms the soul, whether it be a coffee-yogurt smoothie, Italian java, fresh-baked cookies or any of these other delectable, energy-sustaining treats.

How does a smooffee sound? If espresso and frozen yogurt are two things you love, have them together in a smooffee. Add an additional flavor like almond, coconut, white chocolate or raspberry. Grab some hot tea or a snack — like a cinnamon knot or doughnut — to go.
