  • TCM has Rio Bravo up for viewing now. Seems the film was modified to support 4K viewing. There is a really good intro done by Martin Scorsese where he talks about the artistic effort Hawks put into the first scenes of the movie harkening back to the silent film days. Seems Hawks wanted to express the skills of the silent film work before they were lost all together. This gave me a whole new appreciation of this film. Highly encourage a viewing if you can catch it there.

    “It’s one of the roles where he is so different, in that he’s, how can we say, adorable? He’s not defending the fort, so to speak. I think it’s a side of him we didn’t see in a lot of his movies. He’s enjoying this young woman. And while he’s enchanted with her, he’s also adorable with Walter Brennan. And he’s charming and loving with Dean Martin, and with Ricky Nelson. So we see a warmth and a cuteness about him that we don’t see in many of his other movies…”
