To celebrate an entire year of paying off our cinematic debts, Steve thought it would be cute to pick another Western. It was a great idea; however, this one doesn’t come close to our initial selection. Join us for a dismantling of a Best Picture nominee many have called “The Greatest Classic Western of all Time.”
Steve was so adamant about having this as a selection on the show that he called it over a month before recording. After seeing it for myself, I understand why #IdBuyThatForADollar
I’m sure I’ve mentioned this film a couple of times on the show, either in my review of Victoria, or just in passing; but I got a special amount of satisfaction in having Steve pick a classic that I had the good fortune of seeing despite my limited exposure to Classical Hollywood, let alone Hitchcock’s filmography. This is an absolute gem that needs to be seen, even if only one of us is keen on the particulars outside of the technical wonderment.
Its (roughly) Valentine’s Day, so Steve thought it would be appropriate to have me watch one of his favorite romantic movies. Despite this dual titled film being great, I really wish I could give my approval of the relationship at the crux of the story.
