The Horshack Redemption #22: Prime Cut (1972)

This week The Professor and yours truly get into the 1972 action flick Prime Cut (1972) in which we admire Lee Marvin's shiny white loafers (aka "the Half Cleveland").  There's a sausage bludgeoning, sex slavery, and a profusely sweating bad guy that's not Gene Hackman. You won't want to miss it.

But before we dive into the feature, we count down our 3 best and worst movie theater experiences.  There's talk of projectile vomit and disgusting things coming from Robert Downy Jr.' s mouth.   Like I said, you don't want to miss it.

The Professor and I tackle every detail - from Marvin's badass performance to Spacek's nakedass performance. As we do with each and every feature, we also deliver up the Drinking Game.  Do you take a drink every time Hackman overacts?  Nope - you'll have to listen to find out.

Download episode, visit the website, and like us on Facebook.

Below are some screen shots of the film.  (I may try to provide this with each episode onward.)  Anyway, your feedback is appreciated.  Send us a recommendation as well.  You can leave your comments here or on Facebook.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Marvin looking badass as always

Marvin is unimpressed

Hackman v. Marvin

In which we are introduced to Sissy

Hackman's Lex Luthor was never this gross

Marvin smoking a Cuban and sporting a Half Cleveland

Spacek in a delightful evening gown

Marvin treats his lady's right (as long as they're wearing see-through dresses)

Spacek the ex-sex slave enjoying a classy evening out

One of the best redneck baddies in cinema history

At the county fair; the chauffeur doesn't look a bit out of place 

The milk tasting scene.  Marvin even does comedy right.

The ultimate stud, Marvin, visits his old ladyfriend....

... and, of course, leaves her hot and bothered 

I have some serious opinions about the sunflower gunfight

The End.  Enjoy the podcast!


  1. Wow. I've never heard of this movie. I have a movie suggestion. How about the original Black Christmas? John Saxon, Olivia Hussey, Margot Kidder, that dude from 2001. Good stuff.

  2. puberty and Sissy Spacek

  3. Michael Ritchie was one of the great filmmakers of the 70s and beyond: Semi-Tough, Smile, Bad News Bears, Fletch, and...this one.

  4. One of Lee Marvin's best roles, IMHO.

  5. Oh, I have a recommendation as well, "The Outfit" (1973) starring Robert Duvall, Joe Don Baker, and Robert Ryan. One of Duvall's best roles, IMHO.

  6. Great to have you guy's back!!! Keep up the great work. And yes Sissy Spacek was all that, very classic 70's look. But my favorite Lee Marvin performance was in the 1967 point blank, great flick !!!

    1. Yes, "Point Blank" was a great flick and Marvin was great in it.

  7. Did the lovely Ms. Spacek ever get her proper due as an early 70's sex symbol? (I think her role in that DePalma flick killed some of the momentum.) Like the Urban Dictionary definition says - "Texas girls are the best around."
