Description

Buffalo Bill BUFFALO BILL is the story of famed Wild West showman William Cody. The picture covers Bill's early years as a friend of the Cheyenne Indians, as a war hero in the U.S. Cavalry's fight against them, and as a showbiz star in his later life. The Gunfighter In this classic noir-influenced Western, Gregory Peck stars an Aging gunslinger, sick of killing but haunted by punks wanting to make a name for themselves by slaying a legend. After being warned by his old friend the Sheriff, Peck decides to return east to see his estranged wife and child he left behind. Knowing his death is inevitability if he stays, Peck leaves but before he can reach his destination his past catches up with him in the form of a young outlaw. My Darling Clementine IN ANOTHER OF HIS CLASSIC Westerns, John Ford again reflects upon the advance of civilization on the receding frontier, recounting the events leading up to and including the legendary gunfight at the O.K. Corral. As they drive their cattle toward California, Wyatt Earp (Henry Fonda) and his brothers, Morgan (Ward Bond), Virgil (Tim Holt), and young James (Don Garner), stop outside Tombstone, Arizona, where they refuse an offer for their stock made by Old Man Clanton (Walter Brennan) and his son, Ike (Grant Withers). The three older brothers ride into town, and, after Wyatt subdues a drunk, return to the wagons to find James dead and their cattle stolen. With little doubt about who the perpetrators are, Wyatt decides to accept the offer to be marshal of Tombstone that he had just recently refused. Despite Wyatt's tense first encounter with melancholy gambler and gunslinger Doc Holliday (Victor Mature), a wary, tacit friendship grows between the two men, which is soon complicated by the arrival of Doc's former love, the demure Clementine Carter (Cathy Downs). Although ostensibly focused on the famed gunfight, MY DARLING CLEMENTINE's more concerned--like many of Ford's films--with the creation of a community, the rule of law, and the civilizing influence of women on the wild and woolly West. When the showdown finally comes, it's without blood lust, as the Earp brothers conduct themselves with the ritual solemnity of samurai warriors. Given Samuel Engel's terse, elliptical screenplay, Fonda gives a subtle, brilliantly understated performance in the lead role, establishing a naturalist motif that is picked up and furthered by Joseph MacDonald's magnificent, barely lit shots of Ford's beloved Monument Valley. The Bravados When four men who Jim Douglas (Gregory Peck) believes raped and killed his wife escape from their death sentences, Jim sets out to track the men down and enact his own vengeance. An honest man, Jim sees his actions as just and brave, but as he crisscrosses Mexico to exact an eye for an eye, he comes to realize that he has lost something of himself in his self-absorbed quest for revenge. Bandolero A pair of outlaw brothers on the run must fight off a sheriff's posse and vicious Mexican bandits. Dee Bishop and his gang rob a Texas bank but the sheriff captures them and throws them in jail. They're about to be hanged when Dee's older brother, Mace, comes to their rescue by posing as the executioner. The gunslingers grab Maria, a Mexican woman whose husband died in the robbery attempt, and head out of town -- fast. But they soon have Sheriff July Johnson and his posse hot on their trail. The thieves flee across the Mexican border with their protesting hostage. Soon, however, Maria has fallen for Dee and the two begin a romance. Eventually, the posse catches up with them, but the lawmen join forces with the outlaws to fight off attacking Mexican bandits in the film's violent climax. • Stars: Linda Darnell, Joel McCrea, Maureen O'Hara, Millard Mitchell, Gregory Peck, Helen Westcott, Linda Darnell, Victor Mature, Henry Fonda, Joan Collins, Gregory Peck, Stephen Boyd, James Stewart, Dean Martin, Raquel Welch • Directed by: William A.
