Man Who Shot LV is good stuff*
Posted by MtHoodIllini on February 16, 2017, 22:31:13, in reply to "It's fantastic. The chemistry between Yul Brynner and Steve Mcqueen is great, "
Eli Wallach is the perfect mix of false bravado and menace. All the other supporting characters are well fleshed out. And the overall arc of the young kid who has to choose between the exciting yet isolating life of the hired gun and the quiet yet fulfilling life of a farmer is the perfect breakdown of the Western mythos.
It's in the canon of Man who Shot Liberty Valance, High Noon, and The Searchers.
(because the music from the original was amazing)
looking for a mindless rental tonight
