There are some white bison in Arizona, not in the wild though

she is not raped in the novel (though rape is named as a custom of these outlaws)
Always seemed quirky, most likely a nod to the code or morality views when such films/books were made (not just westerns), that criminals/outlaws would capture/kidnap women and the bad guys would try to kiss her instead of raping.  Raping makes much more sense considering the mindset of the criminals.

GBU included rape in the listing of Tuco's crimes, For a Few Dollars More showed it, A Fistful of Dollars implied it offscreen with Marisol...

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)
We viewed this way back in film class in 1974.  I remember very little of it.

"The One who got Away", 1957, British 6/10

The film chronicles the true exploits of Oberleutnant Franz von Werra, a Luftwaffe pilot shot down over Britain in 1940. He initially tried to escape while captive in England, but was later successful during transfer to a Canadian POW camp.[3] Von Werra was the only Axis POW to succeed in escaping and make it home during the war.

"The Passage" 1979.  During World War II, a Basque shepherd (Anthony Quinn) is approached by the underground, who wants him to lead a scientist (James Mason) and his family (Patricia Neal, Kay Lenz) across the Pyrenees while being pursued by a sadistic German (Malcolm McDowell).  Rate 5/10.  Interesting that Malcolm McDowell could have been partial model for Hans Landa from Inglorious Basterds, he even drank milk while questioning a Frenchman.  And Kay Lenz had a shower scene

Yea I saw it in Cinerama too. Did you see it in Arizona? Wouldn't think there would be a Cinerama theater there.
No, saw it in downtown Pittsburgh in 1962.  Family didn't move to Arizona until 1967.

I don't know about you, but the first time I heard it was here:
But I didn't remember it was sung. Must watch again that movie. I saw it in cinerama at the time.
Yes - Greensleeves/Home on the Meadow (with its own lyrics) was the key that held the generations of the family together in "How the West was Won".  I also saw this film in Cinerama as a kid when it came out in 1962. 

Of course Eli Wallach and uncredited Lee Van Cleef are in it.

And the Christmas Song  "What Child is This" also uses the Greensleeves melody.

Crawford was better.

I prefer the timeless old-fashioned version

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: The Ugly freeze
« on: November 12, 2023, 08:12:16 AM »
I hadn't noticed till now, after having watched that freeze frame only a couple of hundred times, that Tuco is holding not only a meat bone but also a bottle of wine in his left hand. Which makes the hasty departure even more funny. But why should he run away instead of disposing definiitively of his helpless opponents?

I'd been aware of both the meat and the wine bottle.  Tuco wouldn't have known if there was another thug or two waiting outside the door, or if all three were dead (Muloch wasn't) so the safest exit in that moment for him seemed like through the window.  And did make an unexpected start to the film though !

And though the three songs sung by Presley are forgettable (you don't need Greensleeves with lyrics)
So was Presley's rendition of Greensleeves better than Johnny Crawford's in the very last rifleman episode????

"To End All Wars" 2001.  POWs in Japanese prison camp in Thailand.  Powerful, but not really"enjoyable".  Rate 5/10
