Novecento - dave jenkins
As a big Michael Mann fan and a big F1 fan (hence an interest in Ferrari), I will definitely be watching this:

Nice trailer too. No dialogue until right at the very end.
Now longer, with dialogue, which, unfortunately, is uniformly insipid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oOVNMjM1Jk

Vertigo (1958) I had watched it in a theatre at the time a handful of colour H.'s movies were re-released. Can't remember if I watched it again on tv. This one would be a 10/10 without the crime plot, which is just so full of holes (Novak doesn't leave SF. Or, even worse, when she  opens the door she doesn't bat an eyelash at Stewart in front of her. And why the finale?). 8-9/10

La jalousie (2013) - 9/10. One of those b&w films about relationships Philippe Garrel is always making. This one was shot by Willy Kurant (his last film). Maybe the best of the Garrels (at least, of those I've seen). Louis plays Louis, his sister Esther plays his sister Esther. The little girl actress they get to be Louis's daughter is really good.

Desperate Measures(1998) Not a very good action movie, both for absurdity of the whole story (a loving father causes an enormous amount of mayhem to allow a convict to donate his spinal midolla to his ailing son) and the way the action scene develop, not particularly original and thrilling. 5/10

Yea I saw it in Cinerama too. Did you see it in Arizona? Wouldn't think there would be a Cinerama theater there.
No, saw it in downtown Pittsburgh in 1962.  Family didn't move to Arizona until 1967.

Yes - Greensleeves/Home on the Meadow (with its own lyrics) was the key that held the generations of the family together in "How the West was Won".  I also saw this film in Cinerama as a kid when it came out in 1962. 

Of course Eli Wallach and uncredited Lee Van Cleef are in it.


And the Christmas Song  "What Child is This" also uses the Greensleeves melody.

I don't know about you, but the first time I heard it was here:

But I didn't remember it was sung. Must watch again that movie. I saw it in cinerama at the time.

Hondo - Louis L'Amour



This will be certainly appreciated by CJ for the amount of desert survival lore it contains. The story is also well constructed, in spite of the role played by mom and boy. I wonder though, how the author ccame up with the name of the Apache chief Vittoro: in italian it would have been Vittorio, in spanish Victorio. 8/10

No, it's only the unexpected start Leone was aiming at, not the logic. Once Tuco made certain there was no fourth man (assuming you are right),  he should have taken care of the 3 once and for all. Why running away like mad? That is a ghost town. But, of course, Mullock had to come handy later: but to Leone, not Tuco.

Handy to Leone, that's a fact. But as an audience member it seems plausible that Tuco didn't know how many people were outside to get him and also not quite sure what happened to the 3 men he shot inside (hence the crazy jump). Turns out one of them was still able to fight back. So he's just making an exist rather than wait and risk a longer battle. He proves throughout the movie that he isn't one to fight pointless battles. He tends to avoid conflicts.

Tuco wouldn't have known if there was another thug or two waiting outside the door, or if all three were dead (Muloch wasn't) so the safest exit in that moment for him seemed like through the window.  And did make an unexpected start to the film though !
