The Quiet Man (1952)

I guess John Ford’s The Quiet Man proves that I’m just a romantic at heart. I mean the whole world knows that John Wayne is a cowboy, a man’s man, […]

Hellgate (1952)

A pair of well known figures of the western genre, Sterling Hayden and Ward Bond, face off against each other in this above average effort from Lippert Productions and director […]

War Drums (1957)

As much as I love the western, this Reginald Le Borg effort could easily have been adapted by the Zucker Brothers into a smash comedy hit instead of Zero Hour, […]

Nob Hill (1945)

This Henry Hathaway directed effort for 20th Century Fox threw me a curveball that proved to be a welcome one at that. Released on DVD though the Fox made on […]

Dimension 5 (1966)

From the winning team of Franklin Adreon and Arthur C. Pierce, the men who gave us Cyborg 2087 in the same calendar year of 1966 comes this Jeffrey Hunter spy […]

Stagecoach (1986)

There’s no need to start here with a big negative by pointing out this is a variation/remake of the 1939 John Ford/John Wayne classic. Let’s be positive and say it’s […]

The Nesting (1981)

Just stop and imagine how many bizarre movies you’re likely to come across if you’ve included seeing every John Carradine appearance on your personal bucket list. I mean everything. Not […]

Springtime In The Sierras (1947)

With a whole lot of comic relief from Andy Devine and harmony singing from The Sons of the Pioneers, cowboy icon Roy Rogers tracks down a gang of poachers in […]

Now Playing 1963 / 1965 London, Ontario

A couple of vintage newspapers revealed some interesting combinations at the local theaters here in London, Ontario, Canada. Plenty of viewing choices to pick from and not a superhero in […]

Seas Beneath (1931)

Always on the lookout for a great deal when it comes to collecting movies, I recently scored the Ford at Fox giant box set allowing me to acquire copies of […]

On Wings of Eagles (1986)

Let’s start by pointing out this two part TV movie is not to be confused with The Wings of Eagles, the 1957 John Ford-John Wayne biopic of Frank Wead. No, […]

Simba (1955)

The shocking scene that opens this tale of British farmers in Kenya sets the tone for what is to come in a harrowing struggle of racial tensions starring Dirk Bogarde and […]

Dakota (1945)

Officially I guess we’d call this a western but it’s not exactly the type we most often associate with John Wayne. If you’re at all familiar with some of his […]
