The Big Gundown

A spaghetti feast


Western

Rod Lott
Italian-made yet America-set, The Big Gundown is the second spaghetti Western in a row I've seen in which a man is silenced by having a soapy shaving brush shoved into his mouth. For the record, the first was the recently re-released My Name Is Nobody, a 1973 film as fine as this 1966 one.

Greasy spoon greatness

Sometimes a diner is just a diner. A good ol’ hole-in-the-wall can still serve up perfect breakfasts as well as burgers.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
We have fooled ourselves, we foodie hipsters. We have bought into this idea that every hole-in-the-wall is a gem merely waiting for us to polish it. And then we can shine it in the eyes of our foodie friends and say, “Oh, you haven’t been there? I’m not surprised.”
