I wasn't sure what was going on with the characters by the end of this. It has a more involved plot than the usual western. The action is good. Ella Raines makes a good spitfire making even big John Wayne very nervous. Gabby Hayes is great as a hard-drinking misogynist. So generally I think that this is a reasonable Wayne western despite it's disorderly character plotting.

I've just seen this under it's alternative title 'The First Rebel.' The colonial era makes it an more an unusual Wayne 'western' type. I thought that Brian Donleavy was good too. Despite being the usual baddie selling guns to the Indians. I thought that the dialogue was witty with Claire Trevor giving as good as she got. Different; I'll give it that.

Not much tempts me here, because I've got them all on disc. EXCEPT When You Read This Letter, which I've never heard of until now. I just might have to go to that one . . .

I cannot go to the Saturday showing, but I can probably go Tuesday May 9 at 7:25 pm

Not as good as the previous one, a rehashing of Back in the USA with different lyrics.

This is a shame: http://www.indiewire.com/2017/04/jonathan-demme-dead-73-silence-of-the-lambs-1201809289/

Many of his films are well known, and a few of them are actually interesting. He was not only a filmmaker, but also someone passionately interested in our film heritage.  I'll always remember him fondly for bringing a print of DYS to the Jacob Burns a few years ago. That was the only time I ever got to see it projected.

Why do you have Franco Cleef's player?

At the time I was buying not only his reconstruction of The Big Gundown, but getting copies of a lot of SPA Japan Spaghetti Western releases, that were restored and in the correct aspect ratios. He offered me his old region free player since he was getting a new one.  Smiley

I just saw a similar pattern to the pancho in the film Juarez at about 46 minutes in, looks like it was on a blanket of some sort it's the scene where Juarez learns of Abraham Lincoln's death. I may have to rewatch the whole thing again see if I see more.

this pattern seems to be pretty common. And I believ a garment with the same pattern was used in Leone's first movie, The Colossus of Rhodes.
