CAST OF ALL TIME GREAT ACTORS!

This 1959 black and white Western story had very eerie photography which was about a town with very few people, high in the mountains, snow covered and plenty of fog. It had some very depressing scenes with hardly any groceries on the store shelves and very few bottles of booze behind the bar. Horses and men had trouble walking in the snow and you never knew who was going to kill who, a horse was even killed because it fell and broke his leg. Burl Ives,(Jack Bruhn) did not sing a song, but gave orders to his men, and kept them from any women or drink. Bruhn sort of took over the town and layed the law down and had a bullet removed without even a drop of booze to ease the pain. Robert Ryan(Blaise Starrett) was in love with a married woman and managed to leave the town and then return as a hero. Tina Louise (Helen Crane) was the sweetheart of this film and Elisha Cook Jr.,"I Wake Up Screaming" and "Rosemary's Baby", was a barber in this picture, however, you never saw him give a haircut, nor his usual bulging eyes and nervous looks. Believe it or not, there was some laughs in this film, especially when the men were allowed to dance with the few local woman, they went wild and just jumped and threw them all around, only to try to get a kiss. This is still a classic film and is worth viewing.

Hard as nails Classic, The Asphalt Jungle meets the Wild Bunch

I love this film because the main character, Blaise Starret does his best to fit into a changing society that holds none of the values of the times he grew up in, in this case the coming of civilisation and big business to the Wild West where he was a gunslinger in the past.

What also made Starret compelling was although not mentioned, but hinted at, he might have been as a bad a person as any of the gang of outlaws ,lead by Burl Ives's Jack Bruhn, that ride in and take over the town.

It was for this reason that he lead the outlaws out into the blizzard to their deaths, and most likely his as well.

I found this theme of heroic self sacrifice more believable than the garbage that Hollywood spews out.

The theme of change was in stark contrast to the Wild Bunch where Bishop and Engstrom was unable to change with the times (surprisingly Deke Thornton, played by Robert Ryan, is a similar character to Starret as he had to change, did Sam Peckinpah get the idea of Thrornton from Day of the Outlaw?) Back to the film, overall, it was great, tough acting by all concerned, particularly Ryan and Ives, taut direction, beautiful cinematography, I have never scene such striking images of snowstorms and snow capped mountain landscapes, and a satisfying storyline.

If you get a chance to see this, do it!
