An american western that does alot of things right. Very good film with gregory peck. The technicolor is beautiful. The film even has a downer ending. Anybody seen it?

Its a nice gem that got slandered when it was released. Though I cannot imagine why?

It got slandered because of too much sex, for the same old Puritain Ethic we disscussed once before. The film is also quite unique because Pearl is the 'hero" in this film.

Jennifer Jones :o was a hottie for sure.

They must mean implied sex because I saw nothing of the sort.

Never seen it, but it's featured in Michael Sauter's The Worst Movies of All Time, so . . .

Pearl the hero? never saw that. I didnt find any heroes in this film at all. Peck's brother is the closest thing that came to a hero in the movie.

Pearl kills bad guy Peck even though she is attracted to him, so she has been considered technically the hero of the film

I want too see this, but here in Hungary it's impossible... no dvd, no vhs, nothing... television can kiss my ***, they didn't play it...

Are there any good and big pictures? I found very few pics and they are small...

I love Gregory so...

He's very good in 12 O'Clock High.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

Well... actually saw it twice since then. It's very, very old-fashioned and emo, but the ending is like a good spaghetti. And Jennifer Jones doesn't look like a half-breed. She would even fail as Carmen. But Greg is handsome.  :-*

While I consider this a mess plotwise, contains 2.5 hours worth of twist and turns sans momentum or logic - a lot of meandering. DitS is very worth watching just for the technicolor/cinematography, the orange, studio-lit skies and the sets (especially the cantina in the movie's opening moments). While it's undeniably flawed, it's an important western.



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..
