  • Hi
    Jim


    If I remember rightly Gable played in a number of westerns including the Tall men with Jane Russell and Boom Town with Spencer Tracy. Probably there must have been more but i cant thnk of any at the moment.


    Regards

  • Dakota. I enjoyed this movie though the plot and dialogue was especially weak in places. I always love seeing Duke and Walter Brennan together and Ward and his pal were striking villans, I like to see Duke and Ward go against each other in films, makes it all the more fun knowing the deep friendship that was there.


    Support your local Gunfighter. A fun sequel to the movie I mentioned a page or so back and once again Jack Elam stole the show, he really could be a fantastic foil, iv'e always considered him the textbook Western villan. I always enjoyed Harry Morgan in MASH and enjoyed seeing him in these movies where he already looked old, crazy to think he only died last year. I enjoyed Garner aswell, smooth and confident i'm suprised he didn't become more of a Western box office star at the time but I suppose Westerns were on the decline and he was forever associated with Bret Maverick, I imagine 20 years earlier he might have been a huge star.

  • The king and four queens

  • Already took a look in there, I watched both that and The Fighting Kentuckian both this week and Ralston's bad acting didn't really stand out for me in either, didn't realise it was the same woman until i looked it up!


    I agree she certainly was poor.
    Just shows how far you can get when you 'know' the boss!!

  • Thanks for the reminder, Art. I've seen both of those but it's been awhile and this 74-year-old memory is failing fast.

    I knew it was bad, everyone says it's bad.
    Damn, it's worse than bad.
    Has the infamous pleasure of going straight into my top 3 worst films I've ever seen from any genre.
    2 stinkers in a row on a Saturday night, I hope not to repeat that again for a long time!

  • Westbound with Randolph Scott.
    Needed to be sure of a good'un after the stinkers I'd just watched.
    Randolph Scott didn't let me down!
    Westbound is a great little Western, lighter than the later Scott /Boetticher films, very well put together. Glad I've got the poster, lol!

  • Universal is planning to release a box set of five widescreen westerns next year. The release date isn't announced yet, but the titles are:
    Horizons West
    Saskatchewan
    Dawn at Socorro
    Backlash
    -and -
    Pillars of the Sky.



    Oh, the last western I watched was "Duck You Sucker" aka "Fistful of Dynamite". This was the restored director's cut and is a 100% improvement over the short version. Seek it out.


    We deal in lead, friend.


  • Thanks for the update Bill.
    I have all these on dvd apart from Dawn at Socorro.
    Are they blu ray?

    "Pour yourself some backbone and shut up!"

  • Return of the bad men.
    Randolph Scott and Gabby Hayes again this time with Robert Ryan, surprise, surprise playing the villain.
    Anther good Scott Western.

    "Pour yourself some backbone and shut up!"

  • Overland Stage Raiders on Olive blu ray.


    Another cracking transfer and a nice little film.
    I have rediscovered these since the blu rays and have enjoyed everyone.


    Can't wait for the next batch of Duke releases from Olive films in Janary!
