Our virtual Western Night at the Movies convened yesterday evening and Kirk Ellis chose GUNSLINGER (1956) directed by the king of small budget indies, Roger Corman, arguably best known for his Edgar Allan Poe-inspired horror films from the sixties starring Vincent Price.
In spite of the pandemic lockdown, our Western Night at the Movies group still manages to watch a Western. Robert Nott and Kirk Ellis came up with the idea that we’d choose a film available online for free (and there’s a slew of them), watch it on our own and then we’d have a Zoom session online to discuss it.
As it was my turn to select the film, I was very pleased to find DARK COMMAND (1940) available. It stars John Wayne, Clair Trevor and Walter Pidgeon.
At our latest Western Night get-together, Johnny Boggs brought GUNMAN’S WALK (1958), a morality play about father and son rivalry, racism, lies, and the wrongheadedness of indulgence.
Last evening at our Western Night at the Movies gathering, Robert Nott brought one of the most charming and delightful Western comedies I’ve ever seen. A TICKET TO TOMAHAWK
