We begin our second edition of Merc Month with Richard Brooks’s classic ‘The Professionals’! Burt Lancaster and Lee Marvin head up an all-star cast who are sent to rescue a railroad magnate’s wife from the clutches of a Mexican bandit in the dying days of the Old West. But all is not as it seems!
A classic western with great shootouts and set pieces the film, ‘The Professionals‘ is one of the giants of the genre and is perfect to kick off our month of Mercenary films. Merc month is back!
The episode is also available on all other podcast platforms, you can find them here.

Having done The Professionals, you absolutely have to do The Wild Bunch.
Truly, you have to. It, in a way, is the Anti Kelly’s Heroes.
There’s a mercenary element to it, we could do!
