  1. Outstanding movie. I have to admit, I never thought of it as “racist” in any way. It’s just exciting, well-filmed, and free of cliche crap. It works because of the pursuing warriors. You want them to fail, but they don’t seem like cartoonish buffoons. You feel like they could catch their prey if the breaks went their way. And yeah, they don’t ditch the snake-bit guy in some B-grade action movie move.The star was actually on the US Olympic fencing team back in the 30s IIRC. I don’t think he went to the games, either because of the war or because he became an actor first. Either way…
