Stagecoach Review


Very Good
Stagecoach is the archetypical Western -- a stagecoach full of crazies has to make it through Indian country in one piece. Though it was his 80th film (of nearly 200), Stagecoach made John Wayne into the superstar he eventually became. Mitchell won Best Supporting Actor for his role as the drunken Doc Boone, and the rest of the cast, notably Trevor as a hooker being run out of town, are memorable. The film has some amazing gaffes, including guns that kick but don't actually go "bang" and, again most notably, one rear-projected shot from the stagecoach where the Indian outside is riding the wrong way. Classic, yet hopelessly dated.

The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre Review


Essential
It's too bad that one of the greatest films of all time is remembered for a line ("We don't need no stinkin' badges!") that doesn't appear in the film. (It's actually, "We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges!" Must be something about Bogart movies and misquoted lines...)

It's also too bad that one of cinema's great adventures is often forgotten as one of cinema's great tragedies, too.

The Magnificent Ambersons Review


Good
I've never been a fan of The Magnificent Ambersons, despite its reputation as one of Orson Welles' best works, but I'd recently heard it would become a TV miniseries, so I figured a repeat viewing was in order. My thoughts remain unchanged.

The story, involving a rich family in a small town during the late 1800s/early 1900s, doesn't go very far. It's a romance of sorts between an Amberson elder (Dolores Costello) and her beau (Joseph Cotten), and an Amberson junior (Tim Holt) and his beau (Anne Baxter) -- who turns out to be the daughter of Cotten's character (an automobile pioneer). Backstabbing and lunacy abound, never really amounting to much, until we finally realize what we've been watching is little more than a primitive form of soap opera, with overwrought betrayals that are ultimately vapid and meaningless.
