Posts from Hondo Duke Lane in thread „How The West Was Won (1962)“

    When you think about this movie and what it represented in our culture of the west, this was a remarkable movie. You have great stars like James Stewart, Henry Fonda, Karl Malden, Richard Widmark, Gregory Peck, Eli Wallack, Carroll Baker, Debbie Reynolds, George Peppard, Walter Brennan, Henry Morgan, John Wayne, and more.

    They made a western that center around a family and how they made it through the untamed west. The part that gave me a sense of pride is no matter what the bad is, the good always prevails. This is what makes our country great today. We learn from the bad, and the good. Things do happen for a reason, and we accept it.

    Those before us carved this country into what it is today, and we must thank those like our ancestors for making this into the country it is. Many have died for this freedom. These actors, most of them no longer with us also contributed to the heritage of this country as well.

    Seeing this movie again today, helps me to realize that we have more to do today, and we should never let those who made so many sacrifices in their day down. Thanks to many who did give to us and may we never let them down.

    Cheers :cool: Hondo

    That would be great. I kinda agree with Stumpy on those lines, but I've seen them so long that I just figured it will always be there, and if this version does not eliminate it, then I won't bother to purchase it, mainly because Duke is in only a few minutes with Harry Morgan playing General Grant and General Sherman.

    Cheers :cool:
