http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0045991/

Just saw the dvd of Law and Order (1953) 7 out of 10.

The dvd has no extras other than the original theatrical trailer, but it's a good watch, and readily available online for like 6 bucks.

 Directed by Nathan Juran, and starring Ronald Reagan as Frame Johnson (a Wyatt Earp-type character). This film is a continuation of the 1932 film of the same name starring Walter Huston. In this movie, Frame moves on after cleaning up Tombstone, and decides to hang up his badge and settle down. (Sound familiar  Wink)

In technicolor.

The ending was dumb; other than that, it was a fun movie.

This is the first Western I have ever seen with a phonograph in it. I wonder how readily available they were when the movie takes place, presumably the 1880's or 1890's

What kind was it, I don't remember?

By 1892 Phonographs tin foil cylinder type were around,  Graphophones wax cylinder type sold for $150, by 1899 for $20 with a small version called the "gem" for $7.50.

1895 The Gramophone record type player were in existence, by 1901 they were mass produced.

We have a topic on this in General Discussion.

Oh, there's no way I can tell you what kind of phonograph it was; I have no idea about those things  Smiley

Chuck Norris is currently suing NBC, claiming Law and Order are trademarked names for his left and right leg.

Its pretty straight forward one uses a needle on a vinyl record on a turntable as we know them, the other uses a needle on horizontaly oriented hollow cylinder.

In the movie, we see Frame Johnson's wife using an indoor water pump. I see in the "Archetypes" thread it says that the Tremont Hotel in Boston was the first with indoor plumbing, in 1829. But that was in a big city in the East; I wonder if any of you know when those indoor water pumps would have been widely in use in homes in Western towns?

If you built your house over your well you could use that type of pump, or if you had a spring you could gravity feed to a cistern under the house and have a pump, draw up water to where you wanted it. I've seen an illustration dated 1450 of a pump that uses that same concept of course it doesn't quite look like the one we see in Westerns.
