Hombre is my altime favorite AW, Richard Boone just oozes menace, I did a good review of it in other films, check it out. Newman's one liners were just begging for a jew's harp twang. Its that good, and its out on DVD. So if you want to get a good sample of Richard Boone badass, get it, now I'm just waiting for the "Tall T".  Cool

Thanks for the recommendation.

have you ever seen "man called horse"? If so...how is it?

A Man Called Horse is good too, but I think its in that earlier, pre Civil War era, much like Jerimiah Johnson, and "A Man In The Wilderness". Its been a long time since I've seen it.

  Firecracker, it's a good western, but not a great western.  And like cigar joe said, it's set before the Civil War, the 1820's I'm thinking, so don't go in expecting some six-gun action! 

  It is an interesting movie though.  Much of the movie is spoken in Native American dialect which gives it a sense of authenticity.  And Richard Harris gives an amazing performance so if you're a fan of his, which I am, it's worth it to see.

  And there's always the Sun Dance ceremony.  I'm not gonna lie, it's difficult for me to watch because Harris actually did the ceremony.  So all in all, just know what you're getting going in, and I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I think it hasn't aged well, though. When I saw it at the the theatre I was enthused, but re-watched on tv after the deluge of westerns praising the indian ways, it has little to recommend it.

wait a second. The sun Dance ceremony is when they hang him by his skin? Harris actually did that!? Is he crazy!?

  That was my reaction when I saw it!  I always knew Richard Harris was sometimes a difficult actor to work with, but the guy had dedication to his craft.  And I'm not gonna lie, that scene is difficult to watch from where they insert the wooden clips in his chest to where they lift him up.  Very psychedelic scene!

Happend to catch Rio Concho again today, there is a mistake in my previous post the rifles are supposed to be Henrys, but they are "yellow boy" Winchesters ( a prop faux pas),  the film is supposed to take place two years after Lee surrenders at Appomatox.

Someone left the cake out in the rain.
I don't think that I can take it,
cause it took so long to bake it,
and I'll never have that recipe again.
Oh, Noooooooooooooo.


Nope. The man was not crazy.

Now I have to recorrect my self, I just realized that the Winchester "yellow boy" rifles actually did come out in 1866 so the film is correct. I was thinking of the Winchester 73

The new model (66) contained a number of modifications to the Henry rifle. The Most notable changes included a loading gate in the right side of the receiver, a completely enclosed magazine tube, and a wooden forearm. The new rifle retained essentially the same brass frame, brass butt plate, and wooden butt stock found on the Henry, The earliest Model '66 was manufactured at the same time the Henry was being phased out. Consequently, both rifles were manufactured concurrently. It is generally accepted by the collecting community that the first few Model '66's were serially numbered within the same range as the last few Henrys. Overlapping serials are seen on each side of the 13,000 to 14,000 serial ranges. The 66 was availabe in the .44 Henry rimfire ammo only at first, other centerfire ammo added later.

The later Winchester 73 was available in .44 WCF, .38 WCF (.38-40), and .32 WCF (.32-20), most of which were also available in Colt, Remington and other revolvers. Having a common centerfire cartridge in both revolvers and rifles allowed the owner to carry two firearms, but only one type of ammunition. The original 73 was never offered in the military standard .45 Colt cartridge; only modern reproductions are offered in that caliber.

There were some interesting shots--not consistent though--but this dragged like a bastard and was poorly cast for the four leads. Why was Edmond O'Brien given such a small role? I'd rather see a movie about that character.

2 weeks to go! The krauts are also bringing out several other Westerns on the 25th, including The Ruthless Four (1968). Anyone seen this Italian-German co-production, starring Van Heflin and Klaus Kinski?
