AFI voted it 9th all-time best fim & in it's revised survey from 07 It was voted 8th  I agree it's easily in the top ten

& Ralph Fiennes brilliantly portrayed the meanest nazi

Bruce Springsteen's breakout song "Thunder Road" took it's title from a  movie poster.

The beginning of the song opens with the line "Screen door slams, Mary's dress waves" which is taken from the opening scene of Springsteen;'s favorite movie; "The Searchers".

Do you mean Bruce? I just like his early songs including the original acoustic version of "Thunder Road".  Its'  poetry.

The a no 1 western and has influenced so many filmmakers ever since   His youngest son he name Ethan & that's NATALIE'S sister as little Debbie  & always taken or granted  Ward Bond deserved an Oscar shot here

oh, that's it, it had a superb conclusion  been studying this masterpiece since 1979 as a teen  & yet another Oscar snub for Edward G.
