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
Gregory Peck plays outlaw Jimmy Ringo with a laconic stance that also conveys the weariness of carrying the weight of a reputation he desperately wanted in his youth but now realizes is nothing but a target for every quick-draw kid wanting to make a name for himself.
Our western Night at the Movies group met last night and it was Johnny Boggs’ turn to curate. He chose ULZANA’S RAID (1972), an underrated but uncompromising film about a renegade Apache who, along with a handful of followers, escape from the San Carlos reservation in Arizona Territory and are then pursued by the U.S. Cavalry.
