  • index.php September Storm 3-D was really the last major two-strip 3-D release, and the only one to employ anamorphic optics for a 2.35:1 screen ratio. This historically important and entertaining 3-D film from 1960 will soon be coming to Blu-Ray thanks to the non-profits 3-D Film Archive and the 3-D Space Museum. The kickstarter campaign reached its $25,000 goal within two weeks, a testament to the confidence vintage 3-D fans have in the restoration and exhibition work of Bob Furmanek, Greg Kint…

  • More upgrades are on the way. THEY WERE EXPENDABLE, SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON, CHISUM and McQ are being released on blu-ray in the next few months. SHE WORE A YELLOW RIBBON is being released through Warner Arhcive. Warner had better get the color and density right this time. If they screw up another John Wayne classic like they did THE SEARCHERS, I'm going to war. HONDO 3-D and THE SONS OF KATIE ELDER -- still missing in action.

  • Do keep the forum up and running. I can't participate much but I read what goes on. Love the place.

    I haven't watched HONDO in over a year. Not since the 3-D screening in Hollywood last September. That was a whole 'nuther movie, I can tell you. Why in the world didn't Paramount put the 3-D version on disc? Gretchen was there and told us that Paramount doesn't want to release the 3-D version and she has no idea why. What's the matter with them? Are they retarded, or what?

  • Olive Films canceled The Oregon Trail (Republic, 1936). They acquired the rights but couldn't find the elements, according to a post on another forum.

  • I am disappointed, and more than a little annoyed, that Paramound did not include a 3-D option on the new Blu-ray of HONDO. It is one of the finest and most technically accomplished stereoscopic films ever made. I should know, I attended industry screenings of the 3-D restoration.

    I enjoyed browsing Paula's Ben Johnson page. Everybody should take a look-see.

  • You should probably place the photo inside a dehumidifier so that it will unroll itself. Call a local archive or museum and ask to speak to an archivist or to their photo archivist. They are trained and equipped, generally. Of call the George Eastman House Museum of International Photography in Rochester NY and ask to speak to their photo archivist. He will help you. 1910 suggests a silver gelatin or albumen print. Delicate. Water will destroy the photo. One does not sprinkle, dampen or otherwis…

    Quote: “Kodak weighs bankruptcy plan By Richard Waters in San Francisco January 6, 2012 3:35 pm Eastman Kodak may have had $862m in cash on hand when it last disclosed its financial condition, but that has not stopped one of corporate America’s best-known names from thinking the unthinkable: a possible bankruptcy that would mark a low point in its 123-year history. It emerged this week that Kodak has begun preparations for a filing under Chapter 11 of the US bankruptcy code, which protects compa…

  • ... to all you good people on the John Wayne forum. What are your plans for the new year? I have not entirely given up hope of finding a business partner to finance my factual westerns. I'm still plugging away. Meanwhile, the publisher is on my case not to miss the deadline again. Maximum effort, minimun reward, that's the nature of academic publishing. I believe in the impossible.

  • The Cowboys' Christmas Ball To the Ranchmen of Texas By Larry Chittenden, 1893 'Way out in Western Texas, where the Clear Fork's waters flow, Where the cattle are "a-browzin'," an' the Spanish ponies grow; Where the Northers "come a-whistlin'" from beyond the Neutral Strip; And the prairie dogs are sneezin', as if they had "The Grip"; Where the cayotes come a-howlin' 'round the ranches after dark, And the mocking-birds are singin' to the lovely "medder lark"; Where the 'possum and the badger, an…

  • Where does John Wayne appear in Lone Star Ranger (Fox, 1930)? I'll have to look for him in it. There are some skips in my copy. Not because of missing footage, but a bad burn from CometVideo. It's quite a good western, however. Richard index.php

  • The reason I mention this particular book is that it covers the same time and place, geographically and chronologically, as the new series HELL ON WHEELS. Wish I could get ten people -- okay, five people -- to read the book first, and watch the program as it airs, so that we could discuss it in a devoted thread. That would be fun. Richard

    index.php Quote from joekiddlouischama: “The Train Robbers (Burt Kennedy, 1973) is mildly entertaining and lightly enjoyable, and I certainly prefer it to Rooster Cogburn (Stuart Millar, 1975). However, it's also slight and simplistic, and it needed a richer writer-director than Burt Kennedy to bring out greater depths and darkness, the kind of intricacy and tension that could have made the film something more than disposable entertainment. I didn't feel that Kennedy set up the bizarre, comicall…

  • Quote from Robbie: “He does not seem to have fond memories of this interview and it is certainly not amongst his favourites, perhaps he detested that fact that John Wayne's answers to his question were short, sharp and witty whereas most of Parkinsons guests like to overindulge their own self importance. index.php” I get such a kick out of your signature photo, Robbie. Wish I'd thought of it. Richard

  • What a great idea. I'd say thanks but this takes a fast connection, doesn't it. Otherwise the films play in short stops and starts. Mostly stops. Guess I'll have to stick with my DVD's and Blu-rays. Richard
