Titoli scores again! (and from behind the 3-point line)  Afro Afro Afro

What are you on about, Dave? Tongue

If any of the "English Acting Knights" was overrated, it's Ralph Richardson. Leave Olivier alone.

Grogs, you are either on drugs or you have never seen The Heiress. Of course, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.

Hey dude, if you read my post I was praising Wayne, not bashing him. What's your problem?

Watched this tonight on TCM really enjoyed it and appreciate it more now than I did back when it first came out, its superior to most of what passes for Westerns nowadays, by directors that don't have a clue.  Afro

Yeah . . . and if you can look past the fact that Colorado plays Arkansas and Oklahoma in the picture, you can enjoy the film quite a bit.

Wayne was great in this but after reading some of the previous posts I had an image of Wayne as Richard 111.  Perhaps not a good idea.

The image of Wayne that comes out of all this is that of John Wayne. Nobody can play Wayne like John Wayne. And here he plays Wayne at his best. Don't know where the Richard III idea comes from.
