Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  1. In the NYRB Implacable in Texas

    A review of The Searchers: The Making of an American Legend by Glenn Frankel

    Texans, Commanches, race war and a Fate Worse Than Death. A film filled with nuances and glances, the idea of Ford as a director who was still making silent movies and better for it. It's still a great piece of work playing with the Western marred slightly by Fordian horseplay. Think I prefer the printed myth of Valance myself, edging towards politics beyond a heroic back shooting world.
     
  2. Watched this again the other day - the music makes so much more of the film. Most notably Lorena - supposedly the most popular ballad sung on both side of the second continental civil war.
