Whew..! I needed that third clue ;) Thanks, mr6666 et al. Here we go...

 

Arguably, this film may be the most deadly with 41% of it's cast and crew developing a cancer within 25 years of it's completion; 21% having died or committed suicide.

Re Conqueror, I came by it honestly. Reading up on Pedro Armendariz, I read about his suicide after finishing his work on From Russia With Love, and wound up briefing myself on the whole account.

 

A new one:

Mid-50s B&W Western. Barn dance in a small frontier community. A supporting player, who is already known as a dancer, performs an intricate choreographed dance, occasionally using farm impliments as props. (One assumes a full-scale dance band has come in, and is just off camera.}

What movie?

Aw, phooey! I wanted to use at least one more clue, namely: "Its the Anti-High Noon. In church, the whole congregation pledge themselves to harbor and protect a fellow citizen."

 

But you're right. Russ Tamblyn, with Seven Brides For Seven Brothers behind him, with Tom Thumb and West Side Story ahead of him, did a dance routine that a young Fred Astire may have done if ol' Whatsisname Burkley had ever sent him to a barn dance. It was a light passage, and maybe somewhat out of place, in a pretty grim gunfighter story.

 

Your thread, pastman.

nyuk nyuk nyuk... ;) Thank you, cmvgor. And I could never accept Broderick Crawford in a western role. My first recollections of him are from Highway Patrol (tv series) .. those images color everything I see him in. Here we go...

 

Name the movie...

Having lost his wife and baby during birth, he drowns his sorrow in a bottle. But he's got more important things to worry about.

No. No Rita Hayworth. However, there is a 'Chema' Hernandez credited under -Other crew- as

head wrangler in this south of the border setting.

Not 3godfathers.. The star of this film (1966) starred in another movie (1963) that inspired a popular TV show (1969) starring Bill Bixby.

I'll try a new one.

 

Sleeping With The Enemy it ain't. The bride grabs her jacket, ducks out the back door and hits the ground running after the first slap. Soon she makes a friend, and it turns into a female- buddies-on-the-road movie.

 

What film?

90s. Thelma And Louise it also ain't. These characters have hope. Sometimes its a struggle, but they have hope and can afford optimism.

Jack & Bobby's mom, Nash Bridges' dad and Sister Agnes of God all got in their licks in this flick.
