A film set in the contemporary West was Kirk Ellis’s choice for our latest Western Night at the Movies gathering. THE THREE BURIALS OF MELQUIADES ESTRADA (2005) tells a disquieting yet fascinating story of loyalty and friendship mixed with torment and consequences.
For our latest Western Night meeting, I chose MONTE WALSH, the 1970 film starring Lee Marvin. It’s a haunting, bittersweet picture.
It was Johnny D. Boggs’s turn to choose the film for our Western Night at the Movies virtual meeting this time and he selected ALONG CAME JONES, a charming little comedy from 1945 starring Gary Cooper and Loretta Young.
Along with Robert, award-winning journalist and author of THE FILMS OF BUDD BOETTICHER, our group includes Johnny D. Boggs, record eight-time Spur Award-winning author whose works include RETURN TO RED RIVER, Kirk Ellis, Emmy-winning writer and producer of HBOs JOHN ADAMS and TNTs INTO THE WEST, Kirk’s wife Sheila, and David Morrell, award-winning author and New York times best-selling author of FIRST BLOOD.
