    • DMMW #3: Stagecoach

      This month's Duke Monthly Movie Watch (DMMW) is: Stagecoach (1939)

      How it works: Here is the basics, each month on the first of each month we'll post a new Duke Wayne movie in this forum for all of us to watch. The hope is that you'll have a chance to sit down and watch the chosen movie within the first week or two of the month and share your thoughts, or insights of that movie here in this thread. I'm hoping that doing this will generate greater appreciation for the movie of the month.

      I realize that many of the movies will not be available online to watch via the forum, so many of the movies will have to be watched either by DVD that you already own OR you can choose to rent the movie online from Amazon streaming service or some other online movie streaming service.


      Amazingly Stagecoach is on YouTube and is embedded below from YouTube so you should be able to watch it from this thread. If not let us know.

    • It's getting to the end of the month, time is running out for this month's Duke movie Watch.

      Quick trivia:
      • Orson Welles privately watched this film about 40 times while he was making Citizen Kane (1941).
      • The film grossed nearly a million dollars by the end of 1939, earning the largest profits of any Walter Wanger film production to that date.
      • Thomas Mitchell had stopped drinking alcohol more than two years before he played the drunken Doc Boone.
