  1. This was good. Very good I didn't expect much and was pleasantly surprised. The only weakness was the gullibility of Anthony Perkins character as the interim town sheriff. Fonda was very good here. Kip, a youngster in the film who is happy to find a daddy figure in Fonda's character, is very good. Lee Van Cleef plays a baddie in this one. He is not the main baddie though. The film was predictable but was done very well. Anthony Mann did a fantastic job with this one. I rank this 8 out of 10.
  2. A better plot would have been to make it more of a British "Riffifi". I would have focused on the whole crew and built the plot out from there. Mason's plight would have been a part of the whole, instead of being THE whole.
  3. I didn't like Odd Man Out. It started very good and then transformed into a completely different movie. It became about those long, drawn out scenes with Mason. The initial heist premise is where the plot should have stayed.
  4. I love BOTH versions. Its rare that I like a remake, but in this case it was well done. Lorre is one of my favorite actors.
  5. Finally got around to watching this. FABULOUS! For some reason I knew this was gonna be good and it didn't let me down. First off, the cast was fantastic. It starts with my favorite French Actress ( who is gorgeous) Simone Signoret. Jean Louis Trintignant and Yves Montand headline a fabulous cast. Next, the crazy good plot was made even better by fantastic cinematography and musical scoring. Everything was very good here. The fast paced and VERY nuanced plot was the obvious centerpiece. It was VERY well done and directed. It lost me in a LOT of places, but you were still able to f
  6. Gave this a watch. Milan was good as usual. The comedy was good. When Corbucci is good, he is fantastic. This was just average as a whole. It has its moments.
  7. Gonna look at this. Thanx...
  8. That was a thorough review Cigarjoe. I need to get back over to this board more. Good write up on my favorite Western.
  9. Wayne gave his audience what they wanted? YOU said this. Not me... https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/great-movie-the-searchers-1956 A cover story inNew Yorkmagazine called it the most influential movie in American history. And yet at its center is a difficult question, because the Wayne character is racist without apology--and so, in a less outspoken way, are the other white characters. Is the film intended to endorse their attitudes, or to dramatize and regret them? Today we see it through enlightened eyes, but in 1956 many audiences accepted its harsh view of Indians.
  10. So it appears that Wayne had VARIOUS character flaws. Hypocrisy being one of them.
  11. Thanks. Thats the movie he made with Poitier.
  12. John Wayne for instance, made movies that paralled what his character REALLY is. Widmark is a example of a man who made a POINT to seperate art from life because he didn't want it misconstrued that the art was who he really is. John Wayne NEVER did that...
  13. I disagree. Richard Widmark made a film with Sidney Poitier in which Widmark played a racist. It bothered him so badly that he literally apologized to Poitier and they became best friends in real life. You can try and separate art, but you can't separate who you are.
