Other Films / Support Your Local Gunfighter (1971)
« on: January 27, 2008, 11:26:07 PM »
Support Your Local Gunfighter (1971)  5/10  I like Support Your Local Sheriff, but this one was nowhere near as good.  The only reason to see this one is Jack Elam as a down and out cowboy/gunslinger who teams up with James Garner to pose as a famous pistolero, Swifty Morgan.  His last line is sort of a dig at spaghettis, but it works.

As Elam's explaining what happens to all the characters, he says "And me?  I went on to become a big star in Italian westerns!"  ;D

Other Films / 3 Bad Men (1926)

3 Bad Men (1926)  4.5/5  However you feel about John Ford, you've got to admit he could do westerns pretty well and this silent movie is no exception.  Kind of an alternate take on Three Godfathers without the baby, replaced by a young woman who saw her father shot and killed, and the 3 "bad men" tag along to make sure she's okay.  Very good movie, and I don't really enjoy silent movies!

Off-Topic Discussion / I Am Legend
« on: December 12, 2007, 11:27:18 AM »
  I finished the Richard Matheson book this movie is based on and am really psyched to see this movie!  From looking at the trailers/commercials, it looks like the novel's been reworked some, zombies as opposed to vampires in the book, but the movie still looks interesting from what I've seen.

  Anyone else looking forward to I Am Legend coming out this Friday?

Web Site Announcements / What's with all the guests lately?
« on: November 26, 2007, 11:22:15 AM »
  Any ideas as to why there's been so many guests around lately?  Recently it's always around 50, and right now as I'm positing, it's over 60.  They can't all be members just checking the boards without logging in, can they? ;D  I wonder if someone is advertising and bringing everyone in.

  Also, it's odd, for the "Who's Online" page it says 10:19 when I look at it, but all the guests are looking at things at 10:30 and on when the main clock on the page isn't even there yet.  Are these guests from the future? :o O0

Off-Topic Discussion / Senta Berger Appreciation thread
« on: November 06, 2007, 11:18:42 PM »
  I thought I'd add Senta Berger's name to the list of hotties we've got appreciation threads going for.  She's only done a handful of American movies, but she's drop dead gorgeous in them.  Her part in Major Dundee is small but she seems to be there for eye candy, she's very good in Cast a Giant Shadow and another Peckinpah movie, Cross of Iron.  Also saw her in mike's Peckinpah documentary on the Major Dundee DVD, she's 67 and still a beautiful woman.

  So here ya go.

Off-Topic Discussion / Elmer Gantry (1960)
« on: October 31, 2007, 09:46:42 AM »
  Taped this off TCM on Sunday and just finished it last night.  I've always been a Burt Lancaster fan so I was curious to see his Oscar-winning role, and I wasn't disappointed.  Sure, parts are over the top, but that was the intention and it fits the character perfectly.  Lancaster is the best performance in a movie full of them.  I love Jean Simmons as Sister Sharon, Arthur Kennedy is great as the cynical writer/journalist Jim Lefferts (kinda reminded me of his performance in LoA), Dean Jagger is good in a somewhat smaller part, and Shirley :o!  Completely caught off guard by her role as a prostitute trying to frame Lancaster's Gantry.

  The only thing I didn't like was the ending in Sister Sharon's Tabernacle.  I thought it was a bit too much, a little heavy handed, but the last scene makes it worthwhile. 

  Any opinions on the movie?  It's not a hugely well-known movie, but I really enjoyed it.  4/5

Off-Topic Discussion / Cinema Retro Magazine
« on: October 24, 2007, 12:46:26 PM »
  I came across this site looking for a Major Dundee review written by our own Mike Siegel and thought I'd share with everyone.  It's a magazine devoted to movies of the 1960s and 1970s and it looks really cool.  The magazine is called Cinema Retro, and their site is very user-friendly (  Thinking about subscribing, anyone else hear or know of this magazine?

Web Site Announcements / How to make a signature picture?
« on: October 03, 2007, 10:45:36 AM »
  Seems everyone has pictures at the bottom of their posts, and I was curious, how do you get a picture into your posts?  In the profile section, I couldn't figure it out.  Can anyone help?

Off-Topic Discussion / Upcoming TCM schedule
« on: October 01, 2007, 11:09:16 AM »
  With all the good movies out there and on tv, I thought it might be a good idea to have a running post that says when TCM or whatever channel is airing a western worth watching.  That way anyone who wants to watch them can do so or tape them.  Might be a good way to generate Movie Night or the new film discussion board.

  So, anyways here goes.

  Tuesday October 2
  1:15 P.M. (eastern) They Died With Their Boots On (1941): Romanticized biography of General George Armstrong Custer and his last stand.  Cast: Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Arthur Kennedy.. Dir: Raoul Walsh.. BW-140 mins, TV-PG

  3:45 P.M. (eastern) Custer Of The West (1968): The flamboyant Cavalry officer courts disaster when he fights the Sioux and Cheyenne tribes.  Cast: Robert Shaw, Mary Ure, Ty Hardin.. Dir: Robert Siodmak.. C-141 mins, TV-PG

  6:15 P.M. (eastern) Geronimo (1962): A defiant Apache warrior tries to unite his tribe against the U.S. Army.  Cast: Chuck Connors, Kamala Devi, Ross Martin.. Dir: Arnold Laven.. C-103 mins, TV-PG

  I've seen TDWTBO and its well worth a watch.  Caught Custer of the West this summer, it's got some good locations in Italy that will be familiar to spaghetti fans.  And Geronimo, I'm interested in seeing just to see The Rifleman as Geronimo!  That's gotta be interesting.  :)
