Paperback Hero (1973)
Another Sunday in the parking lot of our good friend Dion Conflict. This piece of Cancon is about a womanizing cowboy played by Keir Dullea (who once again proves he can't act) set in the proverbial small prairie town. Everything akin to 1970's Canadian tax shelter cinema is in abundance here-- hockey, beer, wood panelling. Our nation's own hottie Dayle Haddon plays the love interest. Although well-regarded in its day, today this thing is a disappointment, especially since Dullea's character has all the charm of a narc. Visually interesting for its second unit work, a well-shot shootout at the end, and for an extended nude scene with Ms. Haddon.
