I really love him, he's one of my favorites actor of all time!

Although all movies must take a certain dramatic license when dealing with actual events, HOUR OF THE GUN, TOMBSTONE and WYATT EARP are much better examples of what really hapened at the O.K. Corral.

I'm hoping that, when we finally move to Austin from Los Angeles in March, we can take a side trip on our drive through Tuscon and visit Tombstone for a couple of hours. I've do enjoy visiting places where historical events occurred.

I've never been a big fan of MY DARLING CLEMENTINE.

Yes, Fonda's great...and it's a beautifully photographed film.

What bothers me about the picture is that director John Ford rewrites history.

Dramatic license is one thing, but Ford throws well established facts out the window.

For example, contrary to what is presented in the film, Doc Holliday was NOT killed at the O.K. Corral. He died some time later in a sanitarium from TB. Also, he was a dentist, not a physician.

Additionally, aside from Wyatt Earp and Holliday, there were two Earp brothers at the gunfight...not one.

As a Western Americana buff (as well as a movie buff), these kinds of historical inaccuracies really irk me.

Just saw The Cheyenne Social Club and Firecreek. Fonda stole the show in the former with his facial expressions.

Just finished watching one of my favorite Fonda performances in THE ROUNDERS. What an underrated film this is!

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
