The Grand Duel:
One of the reoccurring features here at The Nerd Mentality has been Garrett’s Films from the Basement series. In it, he watches and reviews the bad, the downtrodden, and also the obscure. Why you ask? Some would say he likes to torture himself because he was never allowed new and nice things living in the basement. He was shackled to a chair only having ice cream for his meals. What he really wanted that whole time was a Baby Ruth. Now that he is allowed to live above-ground and watch some decent films, he still likes to recall his time spent below. Always one for a good western, Garrett thought The Grand Duel might be worth a look.
The Grand Duel stars Lee Van Cleef, a mainstay of the spaghetti western genre. Come listen to our thoughts and also hear Garrett compare his role to the Sergio Leone films.
For our second film this week, we will be watching the second film of the Larry Fessenden collection, Habit.
