Just saw Escape from Fort Bravo today. It was a pretty good film.

I like it, too.  It was filmed in a process called Anso Color, which MGM used on some big budget films in the fifties, giving it more of a unique look.  Interestingly, ESCAPE FROM FORT BRAVO was not included last year when Eleanor Parker was Star of the Month-- but the film turns up on the Encore Westerns Channel when it is absent from TCM.

Oh, goody!  Tomorrow  afternoon at 12:15, TCM is showing The Longhorn with Bill Elliott, Phyllis Coates and Myron Healy.  When I first saw this movie years ago the local paper rated it nearly four stars which I definitely agree with.  Today the Brighthouse guide only rates it 1 1/2 stars which is a foul ball.  Don't you believe it!  If you like Westerns don't miss it. 

 

P. S. George Montgomery and Peter Graves did a remake in the 50's so if you've seen it the story will seem familiar.  In this case imitation was not the sincerest form of flattery; don't judge the quality of the first by the second.

Each Saturday this month, TCM will air a Bill Elliott western.  Thanks for the heads up about THE LONGHORN!

Regarding:  The Longhorn

 

Holy Smokes!  This movie came to us courtesy of poor, lowly Monogram Pictures.  How about that!  Again we see what can be done by people who give a damn about their work despite the budget.  "Never judge a book by its cover" applies to movie studios as well.  It was as good as I remembered.

 

The most interesting part for me was the performance of Myron Healy in what might have been his best role.  I find it sad that this perennial villain who probably racked up more screen and TV time in the 40's through the 60's than his contemporaries-Ernest Borgnine, Lee Marvin, Jack Elam and Claude Akins never found the fame they did later on in their careers.  This movie proved he was a good actor.  I also caught Lane Bradford, Marshall Reed and William Fawcett, all old hands at Westerns in the cast.

Phyllis Coates, the original Lois Lane on the Superman series, also did a number of Westerns at this time; since she was from Texas this seems a good fit. 

 

Thank you, TCM, for helping this movie be discovered by more folks.
