For all those intending to see Steven Soderbergh‘s Che at either the Toronto or New York film festivals, here‘s a chance to see Richard Fleischer‘s Che! (1969), a famously loathed exploitation pic from 20th Century Fox with Omar Sharif as Che Guevara and Jack Palance as Fidel Castro. For free, I mean.
Sample line of Che dialogue, spoken by Sharif: “The peasant is like a wild flower in the forest, and the revolutionary like a bee. Neither can survive or propogate without the other. There is one essential difference between us and bees, however. In this hive, I will not tolerate drones!”
