I'm a somewhat retired tractor-trailer driver who loves the movies and always loved to write. I have time now. No excuses. I suppose it's only natural for me to lean toward screenwriting.

    Mark, When I first posted this film, you could watch the entire thing. MGM blocked it. Oh well. Some of my favorite westerns: “Tombstone” “Hombre” “The Ox-Bow Incident” “Nevada Smith” “The Unforgiven” (the one with Audrey Hepburn and Burt Lancaster) “The Outlaw Josey Wales” “The Gunfight at OK Corral” (by now you know Burt Lancaster was my favorite actor as a kid. By the way, doing some research, I discovered his parents were Irish Protestant) “Red River” Let me stop here.

    I love Westerns and re-watch High Noon once a year. There are many others, of course. More recently, I enjoyed the 3:10 to Yuma remake. One my favorite Westerns is a little known film by Robert Benton titled “Bad Company.” It’s fantastic, not to mention a very early Jeff Bridges film (1972): incredible dialogue, wonderful characters, shot in B&W, as I recall.
