A fortnightly look at the big screen at home and abroad: news, views and interviews presented by Gavin Millar

John Wayne's latest film, The Shootist, the story of the last days of a dying gunfighter, is just about to go on general release. It is the work of Don Siegel, who also directed Charley Varrick, Coogan's Bluff, Dirty Harry and many other violent thrillers. In Hollywood, Siegel talks about the problems of the director who is typecast by his success in one specialised genre.
'I'm not a violent man... There are many other things that happen in our lives other than crime and violence, and I think as long as we do them entertainingly then what's wrong with doing them?' (Don Siegel)
