Rose’s Garden …

Rose’s Garden

Every year Rose toils tirelessly, endlessly in her garden.
Weeding, planting, digging, watering …
Often working after dark, she labours. A Labour of Love.
I am the beneficiary. 

Getting started

Spring Tulips. 

Then comes poppies !

Followed by … 

 

But I’m not the only beneficiary !

Thank You Rose !

A NOSTALGIC SPOOF: THE LAST OF THE SILVER SCREEN COWBOYS – Garry & Marilyn Armstrong

A Nostalgic Spoof of a Beloved Movie Genre

We watched “Rustler’s Rhapsody” again last night. I love this movie. It’s an affectionate spoof of the B-Westerns of the 1940s starring Tom Berenger, Patrick Wayne, G.W. Baily (currently with “Major Crimes” on which Berenger has a recurring guest role), Andy Griffith and Fernando Rey.

The women include Sela Ward, a solid dramatic actress perhaps best remembered as Dr. Richard Kimble’s slain wife in the movie version of “The Fugitive”. There’s also Marilu Henner who riffs on all the “Miss Kitty/Miss Lily” saloon ladies of our favorite TV westerns.

Andy Griffith and Fernando Rey both play power-mad cattle barons. Fernando usually plays an international drug czar and you probably remember him in “The French Connection”. He is slimy sinister personified. Rey and Griffith make a very odd couple. Check out the scene where they argue about who gets to do the countdown for killing the hero. They are hilarious…

Zorro Reborn … Trailer

5 Jul

OK … I just found this. I didn’t make it. I’m not promoting it. It doesn’t even look Western.
BUT … it’s supposed to be some new incarnation of Zorro? You be the judge. 

???
I’m not really against something NEW, but I’m not overconfident about this one.
It had better be really well done.

Zorro Rides Again !!!

The Tangled Trail – A Tale of Western Blogging

livin’ in the West / the bellamy brothers

OK … where did this yarn begin? I think it was when I started to (fearfully) tackle John Wayne.
A daunting project.

Somehow I covered nearly 40 of the Duke’s early films before I got bushwacked.

Somewhere around Rio BravoDean Martin took me for a drink.

In the saloon I met Director Henry Hathaway.

We rode out – looking for the sunset – eventually ran into Tyrone Power.

I haven’t yet discovered any box canyons so I’ll just carry on as able.
Someday I’ll meander my way back to John and complete things.
If I live that long.

Coming up … Tyrone Power as ZORRO !!!
featuring Basil Rathbone !!!
