Format Watched: DVD

Here we have a classic western that isn’t really a film or a western, it’s more a play and study about human nature.

Very old, very black and white and very small budget and small, close cast. But it’s got all it needs to show everyone what small town worlds will do when hit with a choice between doing the right thing or hope that the good guy will sacrifice himself and mitigate their need to risk anything themselves.

Good film to have watched and might even be something I’d watch again but mostly as a movie study, perhaps less so as a bit of fun.

 

DVD extras: a pretty good documentary with interviews with the people who made it and some stills. Actually more than I’d expect for something this old.


Keep DVD?

No.
Watch if on TV?
Perhaps.
Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Snog.
