James Stewart … The Man from Laramie … 1955 … Pt 1

I was 7 years old in 1955.

And some images from this Movie were so powerful to me then
that they’ve stuck in my conciousness all these years:
The scene where James is roped by the badguys
and dragged through the campfire.
And, in particular, the brutal scene where
they shoot his hand.
But when I think that what we are exposed to these days – every day –
this stuff wouldn’t even make us flinch.
Is this what they call “Normalized” now? or “Desentitized”?
Makes me wonder how such things are affecting our kids …
