3.0 out of 5 stars TRUE GRIT (2010) Fails to better the 40 year-old original John Wayne version, 3 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: True Grit [DVD] (2010) (DVD)
This 2010 version of TRUE GRIT stars Jeff Bridges in the one-eyed marshal role 80% or more of the story is the same as the 1969 John Wayne version the main difference being a totally different ending.

Comparisons between the two are inevitable, having just watched both versions back to back, and for me this remake follows the same course of most of the others i.e. It fails on most counts to beat the original!

This new version shot in sepia hues and much of the night photography results in almost failure to make out any of the images, plus at times Jeff Bridges mumbling dialogue is difficult to make out. The original directed by Henry Hathaway was gloriously shot on location had a fine musical score by Elmer Bernstein and a very witty script by Marguerite Roberts resulting in a charming movie, which sadly this new version fails to capture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Randolph Scott takes on Richard Boone and his gang in the magnificent Tall 'T', 13 April 2014
This review is from: The Tall T [DVD] [1957] (DVD)
In the mid 1950’s Director Budd Boetticher came together with ageing star Randolph Scott to make a remarkable group of B-Westerns. The first of these was SEVEN MEN FROM NOW (1956) a Batjac (John Wayne) Production. This film was painstakingly restored and released as a Special Collector’s Edition in 2005. The remainder were under the banner of RANOWN Productions, the name was made up from the names of Randolph Scott and producer Harry Joe Brown. Their second venture, also benefits from a marvellous script by Burt Kennedy from a short story "The Captives" by Elmore Leonard.

The opening sequence has our stoic hero Pat Brennan (Randolph) Scott in long-shot riding out of the mountains (SHANE like) en route to a stagecoach way-station where much of the action takes place, starting with a stage hold-up by Frank Usher (Richard Boone) and his two side-kicks Chink (Henry Silva) and Billy Jack (Skip Homeier). Also caught up in hold-up are newlyweds Willard (John Hubbard) and Doretta Mims (Maureen O'Sullivan) who also happens to be the daughter of the richest man in the state. Willard is sent for ransom money whilst Doretta and Pat are held hostage. The tension mounts and Pat knows that times running out and that he must act soon and face down the gang one by one if they are to survive.

These Scott / Boetticher Westerns have gained a cult following over the years and can be rightly regarded as mini-masterpieces! Available from Amazon on DVD and as part of a five-Western Box Set "The Films of Budd Boetticher" This review is based on the Budd Boetticher Box Set version, which is excellent all round!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not to be missed, a first-class "atmospheric" black & white Western from yesteryear!, 3 April 2014
This review is from: Yellow Sky [DVD] (DVD)
In 1867 a Seven-man gang led by James "Stretch" Dawson (Gregory Peck) and Dude (Richard Widmark) rob a town bank and when the posse closes in on them, they flee into the desert. Near to death from the lack of water they stumble on what seems to be a ghost town called Yellow Sky, but soon discover that a crazy old prospector and his granddaughter Constance but called "Mike" (Anne Baxter) are living there. The gang soon discover that the grandfather and Mike have been mining gold nearby and set out to rob them of their hard-earned fortune. But Stretch and Dude are divided about the gold, Stretch has promised to divide it all with old man and Mike but Dude has gold fever and wants to keep the lot. The gang fall out over the girl and the spoils, ending a final shootout in the ghost towns saloon, leaving Mike to discover at the end who is left alive and who is dead?

Filmed on location in Death Valley and on Owens Lake, a huge salt flat in the Sierra Nevada, covering about 100 square miles. It was directed by William A. Wellman and it was noted for its memorable black and white cinematography by Joe MacDonald. This is a bleak stylish Western from a novel W.R. Burnett is said to be loosely based on William Shakespeare's "The Tempest". It also has a fine cast with Gregory Peck, Anne Baxter and Richard Widmark who could play the good guy or the bad guy with equal aplomb!

YELLOW SKY (1948) is now in the Public Domain and is available on DVD Region 1 from Amazon.com or Region 2 from Amazon UK. This film can also be obtained from <DownunderDVD.com> in NTSC format and has no Region Coding.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Angel (Gail Russell) is smitten by the Badman (John Wayne) and sets out to change him!, 30 Mar. 2014
A wounded gunman Quirt Evans (John Wayne) is on the run, galloping by a Quaker farm he collapses from exhaustion, farmer Thomas Worth (John Halloran) and his daughter Penelope (Gail Russell) rush to his assistance. Quirt insist he must reach town to send a telegram, but Thomas insists that he and Penny will take him in their wagon. On reaching town Quirt sends a telegram registering a claim with the Land Recorder's Office.
The Quakers then take Quirt back to their farm house and send for Dr. Mangram (Tom Powers) to remove the bullet, it was several days before Quirt fully regained consciousness at that time Penny explains to him the Quakers belief in non-violence. Three weeks later, four riders come into town lead by Laredo Stevens (Bruce Cabot) and Hondo Jeffries (Louis Faust) asking questions about the whereabouts of Quirt Evans. Penny's younger brother Johnny (Stephen Grant) rushes home to warn Quirt of the strangers.
Hearing the sound of approaching horses Quirt grabs his gun only to find it had been emptied when he was unconscious he quickly decides to bluff it out pointing his empty six-gun at the doorway, the visitors believe he has the drop on them! Laredo wants Quirt's land deed and offers him $5,000 but Quirt says he wants $20,000. Laredo hands over $5,000 on account, challenging him to collect the balance if he dares! When they've gone Quirt saddles up ready to leave, but Penny begs him to stay. Quirt changes his mind and stops to help out on the farm.
The Worth's are having trouble a local rancher who has dammed up the stream that ran through the farm. Quirt pays a visit to the rancher who knowing of his reputation soon has the water flowing over the Worth's land. Later a visit by Marshal Wistful McClintock (Harry Carey) who has come to question Quirt about a stagecoach robbery, the Worth's swear that Quirt was with them at the time of the robbery. Events continue to unfold until Quirt rides into town to face the inevitable final showdown with Laredo and Hondo.

"A John Wayne Production" for Republic it was Wayne's first film as Producer but it was not well received on its release nearly seventy years ago, but has stood the test of time better than many of its contemporaries it remains a charming Western that's well worth viewing! This was also Writer-director James Edward Grant first collaboration with Wayne and he went on to write many of Wayne's scripts. Harry Carey is best remembered as one of the first screen cowboys and was a firm favourite of director John Ford his son Harry Carey Jr., subsequently appeared in many John Wayne films. Gail Russell also appeared with Wayne in THE WAKE OF THE RED WITCH (1948) she was very shy and suffered from "Stage Fright" and later found solace in a 'bottle' When Wayne produced SEVEN MEN FROM NOW for his Batjac Company he offered the role of Annie Greer to Gail Russell opposite Randolph Scott.

Filmed in Sedona, Arizona it is now in the Public Domain and as such is to be found in various DVD Western Box Sets, it's also readily available on DVD From Amazon and a variety of other sources, but for all that it is still very enjoyable!


3.10 To Yuma [DVD] [1957] [2002]
3.10 To Yuma [DVD] [1957] [2002]
Dvd ~ Glenn Ford
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspense filled, black & white Delmer Dave western as we wait for the 3:10 to Yuma, 28 Mar. 2014
In 1880's Arizona Territory rancher Dan Evans (Van Heflin) with his two young sons are out searching the outer limits of his arid ranch for lost cattle when from a distance they see the Butterfield stagecoach being held up by the infamous Ben Wade (Glenn Ford) and his gang of outlaws using Dan's cattle to block the stage. During the holdup Wade shoots the stage driver and one of his own men who the driver was shielding behind. Dan, his boys and the stagecoach are relieved of their horses so they can't follow the gang. Wade and his gang stop for a drink at the saloon in the nearest town of Bisbee, Arizona pretending to be regular cowboys, they tell the townsfolk of the nearby holdup and all the men bar one take off to investigate.

Wade stops on too long in town after he falls for pretty barmaid Emmy (Felicia Farr) and is captured by the returning townsfolk. The town marshal (Ford Rainey) and stage-line owner Mr Butterfield (Robert Emhardt) look for two volunteers to escort the prisoner to Contention City to catch the 3:10 to Yuma train and on to the territorial prison! With no volunteers Mr Butterworth offered $200 per volunteer Dan volunteered straight away this being just the right amount of money he needed to put him after three years of drought! The only other offer was from the town drunk Alex Potter (Henry Jones) which was reluctantly accepted.

To foil the following gang Wade is put on a stagecoach out of town but is removed during a faked coach break-down here Wade is removed and taken to the Evans ranch where Dan's wife Alice (Leora Dana) serves them supper. Dan and Alex sneak Wade away under cover of darkness reaching Contention by daybreak where Butterfield has arranged a hotel room for them whilst they secretly wait for the train.
Tension mounts as one of Wades gang come into town one by one all Dan's supporters disappear including Mr Butterfield but against all odds Dan is determined one way or the other that he is going to put Wade on that 3:10 to Yuma.....

Writer and director Delmer Daves directed many other fine westerns including BROKEN ARROW (1950), THE LAST WAGON (1956) and JUBAL (1956) which also starred Glenn Ford. In this taut western Ford plays the charismatic anti-hero Ben Wade. The reluctant hero in this instance going to the second lead the excellent Van Heflin as Dan Evans. A fine physiological western shot in black and white, often compared with HIGH NOON (1952) it also has an evocative theme song written by George Duning and Ned Washington, the singer was Frankie Laine.

Available from Amazon UK Region 2. It can also be found on Ebay and elsewhere in various forms, whatever this is a Great Western!

4.0 out of 5 stars Alan Ladd takes on a gang of delinquents in this prequel to the 'Death Wish' series!, 22 Mar. 2014
Walter Sherill (Alan Ladd) a space scientist is on his way home and is attacked and very-badly beaten by a gang of well dressed juvenile delinquents. He ends up in hospital brooding over the attack. Meanwhile Detective Sergeant Koleski (Rod Steiger) of the Police Juvenile Division does his best to track down the culprits. On his discharge from hospital Walt Sherill goes straight back to work. Sherill's wife Tracey (Dolores Dorn) tells Koleski that her brother Roy Baldwin (Ted Knight) is the Principle of Cortez High, they both visit the school on the off chance it may give them lead, but without success! But word gets around and Tracey starts getting nuisance calls by person or persons unknown. The treats turn to violence and Sherill gets beaten up again outside his house, the only clue he has is the ring-leader is a boy called Chuck. Walt gets evermore obsessed with getting revenge he hires a private detective Joseph Finney (Stanley Adams), buys a gun and is relieved of his job!
Koleski shows Tracey some pictures of local suspects she recognises one as Bill Quinn (Andrew Merritt) who works part-time at a local drug store, with Sherill hot on his trail he goes to the ring-leader Chuck Landry (Michael Callan) for help. Tragically before Chuck can finally be tracked down two people would be dead in a violent end to this story of revenge!

Back from filming the critically savaged DUEL OF THE CHAMPIONS (1961) in Italy. Back at home Alan Ladd is on firmer ground here in this wide-screen black & white film noir drama for Columbia using his own production company Ladd Enterprises the story was adapted from a 1957 novel "The Tiger Among Us" by Leigh Brackett and renamed 13 WEST STREET it opened in New York on the 6th June 1962 (Running Time 80 minutes) on the bottom half of a double bill a further sign of his declining career. In his next film THE CARPETBAGGERS (1964) he was in a supporting role but he gave a critically acclaimed performance. He died on the 29th January 1964. But he was not finished quite yet nearly twenty years later along came Steve Martin with an affectionate, brilliant black and white comedy / crime caper DEAD MEN DON'T PLAID (1982) filmed with 1980's footage cleverly intercut with scenes from eighteen vintage Hollywood films including two of Alan Ladd's early films THIS GUN FOR HIRE (1942) and THE GLASS KEY (1942); Perhaps this is how he should be best remembered in 2014 the fiftieth anniversary of his death?

13 WEST STREET is now in the Public Domain. The picture and audio qualities are excellent also available on DVD from Amazon UK as a Region 1 USA Import. Any Alan Ladd fan could do a lot worse than visit <DownunderDVD.com> for a full list of Alan Ladd films available on DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Alan Ladd is The GUN RUNNER en route to SANTIAGO, 17 Mar. 2014
In 1898 Cuba is a Spanish colony looking for independence. Cashiered US army captain Caleb 'Cash' Adams (Alan Ladd) with his ex-army sergeant Trasker (Paul Fix) head a bunch of gun-runners heading for Tampa, Florida the jumping off point for arm-shipments to Cuba. The dangers are high but so are the rewards. Heading south through the jungle they are attacked by hijackers who are after the shipment of arms. They manage to fight them off, bury their dead and continue on their way to Tampa, when they arrive 'Cash' meets the Cuban representatives, he is not happy in order to get full-payment he has to deliver the shipment to Santiago, Cuba via Haiti, which also means dodging the Spanish blockade. 'Cash' agrees to their demands but for double the price! The shipment is loaded aboard the Vicksburg an old paddle steamer commanded by a crusty old river boat Captain 'Sidewheel' Jones (Chill Wills) also on board is a rival gunrunner Clay Pike (Lloyd Nolan) and his gang. Sensing trouble Captain Jones take all the weapons from both parties. He also introduces them to Cuban freedom fighter Doña Isabella (ROSSANA PODESTA) she is also the cashier responsible for the payout following the delivery in Cuba. First port of call is in Haiti here Doña makes a part payment to 'Cash' and Pike she also introduces them and Captain Jones to her young brother Juanito. Back on board they head for Cuba right through the Spanish blockade and foiling an attack from a Spanish outpost on the Cuba peninsula. Arriving at their destination they meet the Cuban patriots and find it's now necessary to take the ammunitions across country to Santiago. 'Sidewheel' Jones intends to create a diversion from the pursuing Spanish army. Meanwhile the gun-runners and the freedom fighters head through the jungle towards their new goal all the time 'Cash' finds himself drawn to the Cuban cause and ever closer to Doña Isabella. One barrier remains for their freedom a mountain pass guarded by the Spanish army and a final showdown between 'Cash' and Pike.

SANTIAGO 1956 aka THE GUN RUNNER 93 minutes. Co-Produced by script writer Martin Rackin and Alan Ladd through his own Jaguar Productions for Warner Brothers. Directed by Gordon Douglas who also directed three other Ladd movies after he left Paramount Studios. He has sterling support from Paul Fix, Lloyd Nolan and Chill Wills The love interest is provided by the beautiful Rossana Podesta who starred previously as 'Helen of Troy'. Lloyd Nolan had appeared with Ladd once before in WILD HARVEST 1947 except in that one they were buddies. Paul Fix was a Hollywood stalwart in hundreds of films, he was also a friend of John Wayne with whom he appeared umpteen times over many years. Another major star here was without a doubt the 'Jungle Set' of Warner Brothers Burbank Studios!

As a self confessed Alan Ladd fan I must say this is not one of his best films but nowhere near his worst either, worth about three-and-a-half Stars I would say if I could. SANTIAGO is now in the Public Domain and available on DVD from Amazon UK as an US Region 1 import.

4.0 out of 5 stars North and South brother against brother in this exiting Technicolour Civil War western!, 12 Mar. 2014
In 1862 Captain Vance Britton (Ronald Reagan) leads a band of Confederate cavalry in a series of raids against the North capturing Yankee supplies sent east along the Santee Fe trail before they can reach their destination at Union outpost at Fort Point, San Gill in Arizona. Here the owner of the local trading post Sam McQuade (John Ridgely) is dealing with the Apache Indians. The Union Army of the North despatch a small detachment West under Colonel Jeb Britton (Bruce Bennett) to stop the Rebel raids. Jeb being unaware that his brother is the Confederate leader! McQuade introduces Jeb to his wife Julie (Rhonda Fleming) thinking she knows him from back East, when in fact it was his brother Vance she knew! Julie leaves her husband and McQuade tries to negotiate with the Indians to attack the Rebels. Out on a raid Vance and his patrol come across a couple of McQuade's wagons still burning as a result of an Apache raid, nearby the body of Sam McQuade was found on him was a letter from Washington DC saying that a Union officer was on his way to talk to Chief Grey Cloud the Apache leader. Vance ambushes the Union major and two sergeants and exchange identities with them and the trio set off to meet Grey Cloud disguised as Union soldiers. Unfortunately Grey Cloud sees through their masquerade and they are given 24 hours to go to the jail in San Gill where a group of Apaches are being held accused of the murder of Sam McQuade. Following a series of misadventures Vance fails to release the Apache prisoners but does manage to escape with his two sergeants having crossed paths with Julie and his brother Jeb. With the Apaches still in jail Grey Cloud attacks in force. Vance and his Confederate Cavalry hearing of the attack ride to the rescue in an heroic cavalry charge!

Also released as CAVALRY CHARGE (1962) following its box-office success on its initial release. Regarded as one of Pine-Thomas productions (B-picture unit of Paramount Pictures) finest films. Rhonda Fleming a beautiful redhead who graced the screen for many a western and other outdoor adventures. The supporting cast included Noah Beery Jr., who could also be found in countless westerns, but was perhaps best known on TV as Jim Rockford's dad in THE ROCKFORD FILES (1974 - 1980). Ronald Reagan used his own horse 'Tess' throughout this western. For the 40 year-old Reagan his greatest role was yet to come, at the time of this movie he was President of the Screen Actors Guild and later moving into mainline politics he became Governor of California in 1966. In 1970 he was elected as the 40th President of the United States of America, surviving a assassination attempt early in his presidency, he went on to serve two full terms. Not bad for a 'B' movie cowboy actor!
