Yes. Isn't that the only one?

A truly remarkable piece of moviemaking. Can't believe I had never seen it until now.

I haven't seen it yet.

I just watched Streets of Fire for the first time. Wow! Just ... wow!

Which one the 1984?

There's that one Spaghetti Western Day of Anger with Gemma and Van Cleef where Gemma starts out as the town streetsweeper / horse poop shoveler.

Pretty much the only Westerns I've been watching have been old TV Westerns and occasional a film on cable. Every morning I'm on the laptop checking messages, posting and checking on here, when I'm not scheduled for any guide trips. So I usually put on the News, if its interesting enough I may watch it for an hour then I'll switch to H&I and the Western programs run Maverick - Wanted Dead Or Alive - Have Gun Will Travel - Rawhide - The High Chaparral - Cheyenne.

I may catch the end of a Maverick and then most of both Wanted and Have Gun (they run back to back half hour shows), occasionally I'll get a whole Rawhide. They are like comfort food for the mind, lol. The point is that you really get that Western Zeitgeist back and how it paved the way for the Spaghetti's to come in the 1960s.

I usually skip The High Chaparral, it's in color and is a sort of ranch based soap opera, I never liked them. the same thing with Bonanza, The Big Valley and all the others. Loner Westerns where the traveling stranger comes to town open up the storylines. Rawhide the whole trail herd and drovers move across the landscape, camp, visit nearby towns, come across unexpected things, etc., etc. Cheyenne was a loner too, If I remember right Cheyenne, Maverick, and Sugarfoot were in rotation each successive week you'd get a different one in the time slot.

As far as the films I'll catch the ones on TCM since there's no commercials especially if it's one I don't remember seeing. Most of them of course are formulaic and suck, lol.

So since I've been devling into more Film Noir lately I'm really loving the cinematography in The Outcasts of Poker Flat  (1952)

So if any of you haven't seen it it's free on YouTube here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5b0a6CwB6ic

I also like RRW a great deal, and I agree the two combined would have made a masterpiece. Lara Flynn Boyle was never my cup of tea; and in RRW she was also very young, making it kinda hard to believe she would be J. T. Walsh's wife, and even more so - that they menaged to pull a heist and retire without anyone finding out.

I'm not sure what she's doing with her hands, but it reminds me of "Monk" at a crime scene !


Isn't that the way you play the theremin?
