    Nothing against JW, just not a fan of any of his movies I have seen. I will try to locate this one and check it out.

    Wha??? How are you even American? And what makes you think you can rag on me for not seeing 2 movies when you don't like The Duke? I think your sin is greater!

    Thanks! I'll probably PM you when I get there.

    Sorry, I got a little...er...vehement about it. :oops:
    No offense, honestly.

    Let me be a little more specific:

    1) John Ford was a legendary director, and many think The Searchers was his best work.

    2) VistaVision was developed in the early '50s as a response to the popularity of TV.
    It's legit high resolution, widescreen, and was a very expensive process. Especially for then.
    I'm no expert, but I wonder if the quality can be replicated digitally, even now.

    3) The depth of field is incredible, which is appropriate for Monument Valley.
    Everything is in sharp focus (or very close to it), characters in foreground and background as well.
    Which is in keeping with the setting.
    The sense of wide spaces is powerful, sometimes overwhelming.

    4) You'll never find a stronger supporting cast. Ward Bond, Jeffrey Hunter, Natalie Wood, to name a few.

    5) Okay, John Wayne.
    He became an icon and icons eventually get caricatured.
    This is his best work though.
    Here he's an odd mixture of an anti-hero, relentlessly seeking revenge...
    And courageous loyal friend.
    But never one dimensional. He's more than that in every scene. There are inner demons driving him.
    He's utterly believable in this role.

    6) The script and the way Ford directed it.
    It's kind of an odd mixture here.
    It's by turns very grim and serious, and then the tension is relieved by very human interactions..
    There are some very funny moments as well, principally involving the supporting actors.

    Morning all

    What?

    That was nice of your wife to get done for you.

    It’s called water.

    And you allow others to think of you as a mod.

    And see some feet.

    I thought Robin Williams already did a remake of Chitty chitty, but I now believe that was the Flubber



    Oh, I hate musicals such as a Wizard of Oz and shit. Only Musical worth watching, well a must watch is Blues Brothers.
