REV is it a Weird fetish with you ? I have been called earlier / recently ;
GOD :o USA1 BALLADEER WORLD DOMINATOR 1 ;D
You Rev have been called drunk, drugged, stoned & have admitted it & joked so what ?
The gentleman on Amazon seems extremely well informed/factual/knowledgeable :o
I wish I had half his skills/ability/forum presence !! He took on a gang of old perverts
If we Love SWS we are closely linked to USA Westerns NOT subtitled sleepy zzzz films
That should be self evident to everyone and should not need repeating. :’(
READ WHAT I SAID instead of wobbling all over the forum with inebriated nonsense :’(
Cactus and I have agreed on many things Kinski/Palance etc but if I feel something is
NOT CORRECT NOT FAIR then I will POST MY OPINION without any deference or fear.
[quote=“SARTANA DJANGO, post:95, topic:751”]NO Cactus I think that criticism of JOHN WAYNE RANDOLPH SCOTT JOEL MCCREA
is totally WRONG and UNFAIR. You might as well say that those tiresome actors like
Robert DeNiro, Humphrey Bogart , Wooden Allen, Meryl Streep, Al Pacino , Orson Welles
ALL these are basically playing a similar predictable character type in all their films.
Humphrey Bogart was particularly AWFUL as he smoked over 200 cigarettes a day and
had a repulsive “cancerous” type voice, mind you Pacino/DeNiro have similar voices :’(
JOHN WAYNE : A very good actor, he acts with honesty, integrity, macho, reliable
A LEGEND and has made his name in Classics Like CHISUM 1970.
RANDOLPH SCOTT : Another Western Leading Man with an air of authority, poise, charm
A LEGEND in the Boetticher series of Westerns: RIDE LONESOME 59
JOEL MCCREA : A respected, talented Western Leading Man with numeorus good films
I did NOT like his Ride The High Country 62 but most other Films=Good
I think that as SW Fans we must RESPECT ADMIRE APPRECIATE USA Actors/Westerns
We should criticise/attack as I said the sort of Atrocious Boring Dramas that Win Oscars
And these bloated up so called Major stars : DeNiro, Pacino, Wooden Allen, Streep etc :’([/quote]
I REPEAT My Posting as above which is a perfectly well argued/factual/meaningful post.
I am glad Cactus likes other 50s/60s Westerns but JOHN WAYNE/RANDY SCOTT are
just too important/too outstanding for Western Fans to NOT spring to their defence.
Cactus can have his opinion of Wayne/Scott/McCRea but I can COUNTER and say that
the charge of acting in a similar manner can equally apply to fodder like DeNiro/Pacino.
JOHN WAYNE was not acting similar in his westerns but WRITERS were creating parts
for Big John to act in a particular established succesful box office formula. GOOD Stuff !
