  1. I was 90% sure when she posted the query. Waited for an airing to be sure and to have more detail.
  2. Gunman's Walk with Tab Hunter as the spoiled, worthless son and James Darren as the good , unappreciated son. The woman was French/Sioux descent. The situation was a horse roundup. The woman's brother and Hunter were chasing a fine, white mare along the edge of a high bluff. The Indian was closest to the edge and Hunter forced him over at full speed. Hunter had previously argued with the man in camp. Two Indians witnessed the fall and Hunter was initially charged with murder. A stranger, learning he could expect favors from the father, gave false testimony that he witnessed the 'acci
  3. I have the correct CST time zone selected, but this month's listings show start times one hour later than actual. Ex. 10/2 The Story of Mankind shows 6pm but began at 5pm. I became aware when the listings didn't jive with the DISH program guide.
  4. Confederates were holding a mountaintop near a railway. A Union train was expected but their cannon lacked sufficient range. Some of the Confederates sneaked down to a nearby plantation and cut the wires from a Grand piano to wrap the cannon barrel. It gave them the additional range needed before splitting.
  5. Actually, I can only recall seeing two colorized early JW movies: Angel and the Badman and Shepherd of the Hills. At one time, I had recorded almost all of his early movies including the two above, all in B&W. A forced relocation due to health left them all behind. It seemed to me the music was the same in all of his early B westerns.
  6. I admit being wrong about the singing. I just assumed kit was him because it was so horrible. Seemed like they would have gotten someone who could sing. As far as the dubbing, I'm not hearing it. I can't tell anything is other than the actors.
  7. Admittedly, I'm not as knowledgeable as most here, but what evidence is there that these early films were completely redubbed? I wouldn't expect a 30's version to sound like a 60 year old after another 30 years of smoking. The 'Singing Sandy' bits also seemed genuine. Until Lone Star offered these, I had never seen them, so I was grateful for the restorations.
  8. With respect to westerns, in most cases the guns were real. You can Google "5-in-1 blank" cartridges, so named because they fit five of the prevalent calibers. They could be loaded with varying charges of either black or smokeless powder depending on the report and smoke desired. They did not contain lead projectiles. One search result was on the True West website but I had used my three, free articles. https://truewestmagazine.com/hollywoods-5-in-1-movie-blank/
  9. About 40 minutes into Of Mice & Men (1939), the ranch owner does this at the dinner table with Betty Field and Tom Steele. Tom Steele then does the same. Steele's manners, in particular, irks Betty Field.
  10. That's some serious terraforming since the ship came to rest with a background of snow covered mountains!
  11. I remember seeing it, too. There's a good chance it could have been on pre-2002 AMC.
  12. Black powder, realistic for the western era, definitely produces a lot of smoke. I did see something on a recent episode of The Explosions Show where some sort of capsules, fired similar to paintballs, gave impressive impacts when they impact. I had always assumed these were individually placed and triggered squibs.
  13. Having seen them in movies, but never in real life, I always assumed they were only in big cities like New York.
  14. I was including the remake of Monte Walsh, Crossfire Trail and Last Stand at Saber River in the best category. Also enjoyable were The Sackets and The Shadow Riders.
