  • At Amazon, new it's $36, but they have vendors selling very good used VHS for around $9.00. You could then transfer to DVD.

    God, she reminds me of me! DUKE

  • Interestingly enough, "Two Rode Together" and "Bandolero" were both filmed at The Alamo Village - the set Duke had constructed for "The Alamo". The San Antonio main street is recognizable in both.




    We deal in lead, friend.

  • Thought I'd share this bit of trivia


    One of James Stewart's favorite stories of his film career concerned his horse, Pie, a sorrel stallion whom Stewart called, "One of the best co-stars I ever had." Pie appeared as Stewart's horse in 17 Westerns, and the actor developed a strong personal bond with the horse. Pie was very intelligent, Stewart recalled, and would often "act for the cameras when they were rolling. He was a ham of a horse." When shooting the climax of "The Far Country," the script called for Stewart's horse to walk down a dark street alone, with no rider in the saddle, to fool the bad guys who were waiting to ambush Stewart. Assistant Director John Sherwood asked Stewart if Pie would be able to do the scene. Stewart replied, "I'll talk to him." Just before the cameras rolled, Stewart took Pie aside and whispered to the horse for several minutes, giving him instructions for the scene. When Stewart let the horse go, Pie walked perfectly down the middle of the street, doing the scene in one take. When Pie died in 1970, Stewart arranged to have the horse buried at his California ranch.

  • The Warner Archive Collection plans to release The Jimmy Stewart Show. In fact, they were thinking about releasing it at the same time they released the set of Hawkins TV-movies, but decided that might confuse customers, so they held back on releasing The Jimmy Stewart Show set. But it's still in the pipeline, so I expect we'll see it eventually. Meanwhile, if you haven't bought that Hawkins set, do so now! The Hawkins TV-movies, starring Jimmy as a wily country lawyer, are loads of fun. ;) Strother Martin shows up in several of the movies as Jimmy's sheriff cousin R.J. Hawkins, too.

  • This thread, dedicated to one of the greatest actors of all time, needs a bump.


    Recently received two Jimmy Stewart movies on Blu-ray:


    The Glenn Miller Story and Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation.


    Mr. Smith Goes to Washington was recently released on Blu-ray with superb audio and video quality., highly recommended!
