Classic Movies Retropect part 7 and 8

Oh goody, I'm here again to talk about my retropects. This time I take to the land of Westerns and Action and Adventure. Yes, I love westerns. I don't know when I started watching them, but let one be on TV then more that likely I'm going let it the channel stay on the movie. And who doesn't love a great action and adventure movie every now and then!

The Searchers:

The Searchers is a 1956 epic Western film directed by John Ford, based on the 1954 novel by Alan Le May, which tells the story of Ethan Edwards, a bitter, middle-aged loner and Civil War veteran played by John Wayne, who spends years looking for his abducted niece.

Yup, a movie about the Duke, but this is a different type of movie for the Duke. When you watch this movie, you are going to either  hate or at least dislike John Wayne's character Ethan until the end of the movie. He was dirty, racist, and just awful within the movie. Yet one needs to understand why Ethan Edwards was the way he was in the movie that wasn't really reveal in the movie in words, but in actions and movements along. Great movie in terms of story telling and vision.


The Adventures of Robin Hood


The Adventures of Robin Hood is an American swashbuckler film released in 1938 and directed by Michael Curtiz and William Keighley. Filmed in Technicolor, the picture stars Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Basil Rathbone, Claude Rains, Patric Knowles, Eugene Pallette, and Alan Hale.

I so love this version of Robin Hood. It was amasterpiece of adventure, romance and beauty. Plus it was flashy, action pack and just a joy to watch. Errol Flynn was just too hot for words. He being Robin Hood was just it for me. :LOL:  The actors are marvelous and the story  was awesome for Robin Hood that is.



I wasn't big on Westerns for the longest, just recently got into them in the past few years. These recs sound excellent Megumi, as always, thanks for sharing!
You are so welcome TBG. I been a fan of westerns due to my mother and I'm glad she made me watch them when I was younger. :LOL:
John Wayne hmmm? So glad you rec'd this, I've never actually sat down and watched any of his movies. This seems like a great place to start. :)
Yeah, the Duke is one of the movie figures that you either into him or not. I'm into most of his westerns and the Searchers is one of his best movies he ever did. I hope you enjoyed the movie when you see it.
