RARA-AVIS: In re The Dain Curse: RIP James Coburn

Just about the time I was reading posts earlier today regarding the miniseries made from Hammett's THE DAIN CURSE, the star of that miniseries, James Coburn was dying of a heart attack at home in L.A.

Coburn was a wonderfully charismatic actor and though the tv version of DAIN didn't quite cut it as Hammett, I thought Coburn was quite good in it and would have enjoyed seeing him take a serious move in the hardboiled direction in films. That said, he's plenty hardboiled in many, though I can't think offhand of any that are particularly crime stories.
