I borrowed this from a friend about a week ago and just now got around to posting about it. One great performance from Steve McQueen. What do yall think about it? I haven't really discussed it with anyone yet but I'd really like to. I like to talk about movies after I see them. I'll tell you what I think after I listen to you guys' responses.

Trust me, you wont be disappointed if you get this one. Do you have Papillon? That's his best performance in my opinion.

I like McQueen and I like Tom Horn very much, although with this film you don't really get the iconic McQueen, you get a performance of the character he's playing. Makes a change. This film has a nice sense of historical realism which few Westerns have. Superior (in that respect) to Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.

OOOOOOOOOOH, Sounds great Joe. It sounds like our plans to NY may not be happening, but we're working on it and hoping for the best. I just got back from Oklahoma last week. We were fishing Beaver's Bend in Broken Bow. I caught the fattest rainbow I'd ever seen. Looked like a football. 16" long and 13" around the middle. It was also the first fish I'd cleaned and gutted and ate. MMMM.

Tom Horn's been on the bottom of my short list for a while... this just might help move it up... part of the problem is I hadn't heard a good review from a trusted source, ever... but here it is.

  One of McQueen's best performances, right up there with The Sand Pebbles and Papillon.  I picked up a couple of the McQueen dvds that came out last year -- Bullitt and Never So Few -- but I never got around to buying Tom Horn.  Probably should have just bought all four movies together.

  Either way, well worth checking out grandpa chum.  Slim Pickens also turns in a fine performance.

I have Sand Pebbles on its way from Amazon and I CANT WAIT. I hear so much about it. I CANT WAIT. should be here by next week. Papillon is my favorite McQueen performance. Tom Horn is very close up there.

I assume you also cooked it. What did you do? Pan fry it with some butter?

Well, naturally in a cabin, resources are at a minimum so we went into town and bought some corn meal and milk and oil. There was a fry pan and charcoal grill at the cabin so we just breaded them in the corn meal and cooked them in the fry pan over the grill in the oil.

  Beebs, check back in with us all once you've watched The Sand Pebbles.  It can be slow in some parts, but that doesn't prevent me from enjoying it.  Besides McQueen, Attenborough, Crenna, Mako, and Bergen all give excellent performances.

  As well, the battle at the boom is classic, and the ending is one of the best ever, especially the last line.  I won't spoil it in case you haven't heard it.  Either way, enjoy the movie, amigo.

The book was great too, it may be a bit geeky on my part but I especially liked the way Holman teaches about "stem", lol. It goes into it a whole lot more than the film.
