A fitting tribute today; thanks, Chickenhearted.

A great score by Jerry Goldsmith, and great performances by James Garner (one of his best against type) and Jason Robards Jr.

John Sturges' HOUR OF THE GUN (Mirisch / MGM, 1967) obviously.




One of the best westerns of the 1960s. It begins with the gunfight at the O.K. Corral and then deals with the aftermath. It's about the attempt to kill the Earp brothers and Wyatt's vengeance ride. It uses more history than any other Earp film even though it gets the history wrong, it conveys a sense of gravitas. Dramatically it's a soulful bounding leap above and beyond Sturges' earlier classic GUNFIGHT AT THE O.K. CORRAL (1957). This isn't a sequel so much as a revision and re-imaging. A very fine film in any case with an atypically humorless and steely-eyed James Garner as Wyatt Earp and scene-stealing Jason Robards exploring the depths of cynicism as the tuberculor Doc Holliday.

Richard, just so you know mate, sort of unofficial rules of chickenhearteds poster quizzes, are that he leaves them up for us to give clues to for anyone who doesnt get it. Although this one was deliberately easy and appropriate, he leaves it a period of time and then announces the title with an appropriate winner.
Believe me, we have plenty that run and run which only very few get.
In truth there is going to be very few people on the board who wont get the title on this occasion.
Once hes announced the title and the quiz is over, its open season to post facts n figures and experiences of the film - thus creating a thread on that movie for future reference.

I'd also add Steve Ihnat to that great performances list. He plays his last scene with Garner brilliantly, as his character is a weaselly sack of excrement right up 'til scene's end. Ihnat's delivery of his lines is nothing short of superb.

Here, see for yourself:

Doc Holliday: "...Stilwell, if you so much as turn your head towards those men, you'll be laying in the horse manure with your friends..."
