The Capture Another one of those on the cusp "End of The West" Westerns shot in a very noir style its practically not only a bookend film to "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" but it probably could be considered as a stand alone film noir, It begins around the oil fields of Tampico and in the same time (just like TTOTSM) and then moves into the interior just like (TTOTSM). Its directed by John Sturges and has enough sleazy interior cantina shots with old whirling overhead electric fans and trains to keep me happy. It stars Lew Ayres as Lin Vanner, Teresa Wright as Ellen Tevlin Vanner, Victor Jory as    Father Gomez, Jacqueline White as Luana Ware, Jimmy Hunt   as Mike Tevlin, Barry Kelley as Earl C. Mahoney, and Duncan Renaldo (the Cisco Kid) as Carlos

The basic story is Vanner an oil company man gets a hunch and goes after a suspect in an oil company payroll robbery that Mahoney, who was guarding the money, says they passed on the rails just before the motorized railcar was attacked. Vanner takes off on a hunch on horseback to a pass through the mountains, he comes upon Sam Tevlin and orders him to throw up his hands Tevlin who has hurt his right arm yells out that he can't but Vanner can't make out what he yelled and shoots him, wounding him seriously. Tevlin denies having anything to do with the robbery that he was heading back to his ranch, wife and son,  and explains that he couldn't put his hand up because of his wound. Vanner feels disgusted with himself and puts Tevlin on his horse and leads him back to the oil company office, there Mahoney interrogates Teviln roughlyand he dies from his wounds.

Vanner quits the company and accompanies the body of Tevlin to is home town where he meets an old friend Carlos. Ellen Tevlin now with no husband puts an add in the paper for a ranch foreman and Vanner applies. He gets along good with the family until Ellen finds a newspaper clipping about Vanner taking Tevlin and she blames him for his death. Eventually they reconcile, and Vanner decides to clear Tevlin's name and go after the real robber of the payroll.

Its not a great print on the DVD but its worth renting from Netflix, 8/10 for the atmosphere alone.

I'm guessing a  :o equals a "2"?

Nope. Maybe a 7 or 8. Around that.

Michael Jordan to the Max (2000) - 6/10

OK to watch, made mostly of material from his last season with the Bulls.

Michael Jordan: Air Time (1993) - 7/10

Made from material up to the 1992 Summer Olympics. Better than the last MJ documentary I watched.

A Letter to Three Wives (1949) Directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz   . Flipping channels on a rainy day caught this meller and saw that it took place on the Hudson river, locations were in Cold Spring, was enough to watch it through. 4 women friends, 3 (Ann Southern, Linda Darnell, and Jean Crain) go on a day excursion on the Hudson the odd girl out (who is never seen) sends a telegram to the dock and in it she states that she is leaving town with one of their husbands (Kirk Douglas, Paul Douglas, and Jeffrey Lynn), so all go into flashbacks about their relationships. Thelma Ritter is also in this, entertaining enough, this won two Academy Awards in 1949. Best Director and Best Writing a 6/10

Michael Jordan: His Airness (1999) - 6.5/10

Hardly the documentary he deserves but yet again a nice collection of his best moves and moments from his tenure with the Bulls.

Holy cow, I was just in Cold Spring in September, and I didn't even realize the connection with this film. Thanks, Joe. I like the movie a lot, especially the bits with Linda Darnell (which are pretty funny).
