Quel Maledetto Treno Blindato (1978, ITA) C-99m. ** D: Enzo G. Castellari. Starring Bo Svenson, Peter Hooten, Fred Williamson, Michael Pergolani, Jackie Basehart, Michel Constantin, Debra Berger, Raimund Harmstorf, Ian Bannen, Bill Vanders, Enzo G. Castellari. Italian war cult movie about a band of American deserters in 1944 France, who try to escape to Switzerland and sabotage a train along the way. Poorly scripted movie is tedious for over an hour, gets a bit better in the finale, though this is still a drag. Quentin Tarantino liked it and referenced it in INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS (2009). Score by Francesco De Masi. Shown in various cut versions, although it is not very violent. Also known as THE INGLORIOUS BASTARDS, COUNTERFEIT COMMANDOS, DEADLY MISSION, G.I. BRO, HELL'S HEROES, THE DIRTY BASTARD.
