  • Serpico was one of the first R-rated movies that I managed to get in to see by myself when I was underage. Very exciting. This was before kids could just watch R-rated movies on TV whenever they wanted. The last non-western I watched was a DVD set with episodes of Dragnet, Peter Gunn, and Burke's Law. The last non-western movie I watched was MURDERLUST (1985).

    THE BIG TRAIL and THE COWBOYS are my two all-time favorite John Wayne movies. I think THE BIG TRAIL is a magnificent achievement and one of the finest westerns ever made. Here's my detailed review of it: hkfilmnews.blogspot.com/2011/1…dvd-review-by-porfle.html

    Just watched this for the first time since I saw it on the big screen in '74. Wasn't too impressed with it then and didn't remember a thing about it besides that car chase on the beach, so I had low expectations this time around. Fortunately, I enjoyed it quite a bit and found it had more action than I recalled (nice car chases). Plus, I could enjoy the dramatic scenes more now and understand the plot better. I find the Duke convincing as an old, world-weary cop approaching retirement age. One t…

  • Just bought a 4-disc set with CAHILL, McQ, THE TRAIN ROBBERS, and CHISUM at Wal-Mart. I already have the latter two films but had yet to get CAHILL and McQ on DVD. Just watched CAHILL for the first time, and must say it's quite bland. It makes CHISUM look like a sweeping epic in comparison. Elmer Bernstein, who had a tendency to steal from himself, contributes a score that sounds like leftovers from BIG JAKE. Worth having, definitely, and not a total loss, but resolutely unspecial and at times e…

    This is one of my top five favorite John Wayne movies. I can watch it again and again without getting tired of it. I think it is quite simply one of the most amazing movies ever made. Here's a 2011 repost of my review that I wrote back when the 2-disc DVD was released: hkfilmnews.blogspot.com/2011/1…dvd-review-by-porfle.html

    I like that Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer nabbed such a small-but-memorable role in this. He did a great job and even had his own catchphrase: "Whatever's customary."

    Besides being a lesser Hawks effort all around, RIO LOBO suffers from an astonishingly amateurish performance by Jennifer O'Neil and some less than stellar supporting players. At least everyone in THE TRAIN ROBBERS is a fully competent actor (more or less) although Ann-Margret's drunk scene is a bit wince-inducing.

    Funny how the opening titles sequence seems to be a nod toward Sergio Leone's ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST with its depiction of a man silently awaiting the train at a lonely station, and no music--only ambient sounds like the creaking of a windmill and the whistling of the wind. The similarities end there, of course--the two films couldn't be farther apart stylistically or philosophically.

    It's all done in one continuous shot so it looks real to me. At any rate, she did enough of it herself for me to be impressed! And she comes to a standing stop just in the right spot for her close up.

    One of the most impressive things about this movie is the way Gail Russell handles that two-horse team in her big introduction scene, whipping the wagon around a corner and then bringing it thundering to a stop right on her mark. To me, this movie has the easygoing spirit of the early oaters combined with a burgeoning maturity--it's like a fun kids' western with a heartfelt adult sensibility. Every element of the film is exquisitely rendered. It's just a beautiful, emotionally rich, visually stu…

    I got this at Wal-Mart in a double DVD set with THE TRAIN ROBBERS and think it's one of the Duke's best early movies. It reminds me of a deluxe, adult version of one of his old Lone Star oaters. Am I wrong, or is this the first one (or close to the first) where he starts doing his patented "walk"? I don't really think Rocklin's a "woman hater", I think he just pretends to be one in order to gain Gabby's trust early on.

    Hate to hear the disparaging comments about Rooster's previous "leading lady", as I think Kim Darby's performance as Mattie is incredibly good. I find the character endlessly fascinating and Darby is pitch perfect in the role. As for Kate, I love the way she obviously seems to be having such a good time making ROOSTER COGBURN. Her chemistry with the Duke is a joy to behold, making her character's growing affection for Rooster seem warm and convincing. Too bad the movie itself is so bland and poo…
