WESTERN NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: THE COWBOY AND THE INDIANS (**)

WESTERN NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: THE COWBOY AND THE INDIANS (**)

For our December movie watching, Johnny D. Boggs chose a surprising Gene Autry picture called THE COWBOY AND THE INDIANS. It’s surprising because Autry, whose company produced this B Western, presented something only a handful of silent films, like THE VANISHING AMERICAN, and fewer sound pictures, such as MASSACRE, had done prior to 1949 when this film was released.

WESTERN NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: CORONER CREEK (** 1/2)

An engaging tale of vengeance was Robert Nott’s choice for our latest Western Night virtual gathering. CORONER CREEK, a B Western released in 1948, finds Chris Danning (Randolph Scott) in pursuit of a man he knows only to be tall and blonde with a scar on his right cheek.

WESTERN NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: THE LAST OF THE FAST GUNS (**)

An elegiac-themed Western, THE LAST OF THE FAST GUNS (1958) was David Morrell’s choice for our latest Western Night at the Movies virtual gathering.

This Universal B picture opens intriguingly with a black-clad rider passing a cemetery where an open grave waits. In the town, the rider dismounts, faces a gunfighter in a shoot out and kills him. (The open grave was for the loser of the contest.) The rider then gets invited to see a wealthy old man who’s confined to a wheelchair who offers him $25,000 to go to Mexico to find his long-lost brother.
