Johnny Guitar [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Joan Crawford
Johnny Guitar [DVD] DVD ~ Joan Crawford
I liked this atypical and deservedly famous 1954 western. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

Somewhere in Arizona, in a little town whipped by winds, a tough, an aging saloonkeeper named Vienna (Joan Crawford, grandiose) struggles against the hostility of a local cattle baron John McIvers (Ward Bond), who doesn't appreciate her owning land and business in a place he considers as exclusive domain of himself and his cronies, like the owner of local bank.

Long Voyage Home [DVD] [1941] [Region 1] [US Impor&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ John Wayne
I liked this excellent 1940 drama about sailors A LOT and I found it very moving. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

PRECISION: this is a Region 1 NTSC DVD - it will not play on Region 2 equipments.

Dillinger [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] <b>DVD</b> ~ Lawrence Tierney
I liked this 1945 gangster movie/film noir, even if it is definitely NOT the true story of Dillinger and his gang. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

Precision: this is the review of a Region 1/NTSC DVD release of this film, which will not play on European Region 2 equipment. I preferred purchase this version as it has English subtitles (not available on Region 2 DVD release).

The film begins with John Dillinger's father narrating early years of his son's life and especially his first crime - which in this film is shown as a really, really pathetic thing... Once he finds himself in prison he meets a veteran bank robber, Specs Green, and learns a… Read more
