Yep, it's pretty good. I especially like the scene after the funeral where the shadow from off-screen clouds moves across the background hills. Hawks was some kind of director, no? He could even direct meteorological phenomena.

Now if he'd only kept his hands off the woman I love, I wouldn't now have to curse his memory.


That's what you get, Drink, for getting out of bed this morning.

Ok.  Saw this movie. I was impressed.  Lets get into it:

1. Cinematography. I love black and white westerns.  The look and feel was on point.  The set pieces did what they had to do.

2. Characters.  Everybody was on point. I couldn't have asked for more. Brennan did a excellent job.

3. The script.  Loved it. I know. I know. That ending is controversial.  Personally, i think that when Dunson killed Cherry, THAT was the ending that people longed for.  Remember, it was Cherry that hyped Matthew up to take over the herd in the first place.  The female character and the love plot.  It wasn't too overboard, like My Darling Clementine, so it didn't take away from the movie for me.  The massive number of cattle on display was impressive.

4. Music Score.  Not bad, not anything that jumps out at you. Just OK...

I really liked this movie.  I rate it a 8/10...

I do not believe Duson kills Cherry; I think he only wouds him.

Score IMO is one of the greatest ever

Ending is terrible; other than that this is one of the greatest AW's of all time.
