Meine Freund,  I consider it boring because that movie is boring. It might have been the best acted movie ever made, it would still be boring. At least for me, who even gave it a second chance. But I won't say that you and CJ and whoever like this movie have no antennas for a boring movie (though CJ gives daily examples). So please do not denigrate other people  about having antennas or whatever: just say that you like it and why. Verstanden?

I liked it especially for Stella Stevens, maybe you saw an edited version  Shocked Evil

Oh, you smart man. Now you're changing your song. Of course SS is the only reason to watch exclusively her raw skin scenes (the reason why I didn0t give the movie 0/10). But what has this got to do with "light comedy" and the rest of all the crap you  use to exalt it?

Titoli, you give every mediocre western a 7 or 8, so it is kinda consequent that you often don't like those which have, well ... ideas and, well, well ... style

I don't like the acapella music for BC&TSDK, nor the music video "Raindrops", nor the balsa wood and cardboard explosion of the baggage car. I like it best from the South American sequences to the end.

I've always read that the biggest mistake Butch and Harry made was posing for their photographs, now that law enforcement had their images it was easier to identify them.

A cappella? Must have missed it.

Naaah. In fact there's still a debate if the two died in San Vicente. They died there, of course, but the Pinkertons had nothing to do with it. It was Butch's mistake during their last hold-up to steal also a mule easily identifiable by its brand (as it is shown in the movie too, though it is the only element of truth in the hollywood reconstruction) which lost them. They had a full-throttle activity in South America and the fact that they were yankees did little to help the authorities to identify them and grab them.

I never thought of "music videos", but CABLE surely is terrific. I think Sam could get performances out of actors like (almost) no-one else. Those who don't have antennas for this might consider the film as "boring", others are rewarded with real human beings on the screen, just great (although the film is a few minutes too long.

I DVR'd an HD version of Cable Hogue a while back. While cable TV is not quite blu-ray level, the print seemed to be good which made me wonder why we still don't have a blu-ray of this?

It's interesting to compare Lou Lombardo's work on this with the Wild Bunch.

Sam almost always supervised the editing anyway. He had learned very fast and then became an A+ Editor himself...

Well Warners is not what it used to be regarding home video releases. And they surely don't care much about films
who didn't make a profit back in the day. PAT GARRETT, HIGH COUNTRY are also badly overdue Sad.
But although I believe the world is unfair and too often quite bad, I'm an optimist - I waited soo many
years for my BLOW UP Blu-ray, now 2017 will be the year. Thanks Criterion, finally...
