Ah, you see, single ladies' prerogative is to have a man for each season, Bogie, winter, Clint Spring, Wayne for the Summer (good for al frescos) and autumn Paul Newman. It is also my prerogative to change the order or preference (robert mitchum, fredric march might appear at short notice). See?

Rio Bravo (Warner Brothers, 1959). Italian 2 - Foglio (39" X 55")

This is such a great Western, Walter Brennan, The Duke, and War Bond. Dean stills the show though. This is my fav poster. Very La Bella Italia.




AND WHAT A SOUNDTRACK

I am glad you put Walter Brennan first! He was marvelous (especially his John Wayne impression at the end). Likely the most enjoyable non-comic western ever made.

Walter Brennan is great in every movie. He wasn't that old.. I was very surprised.. he always played the old one...

Here's good background info on him I compiled:

"Walter Brennan was a great character actor from the 1920s to the 1970s. Amazingly, it took him many years to get beyond playing uncredited roles! He had served in World War I (and supposedly he was exposed to mustard gas, which damaged his vocal chords and caused his distinctive voice!), and then he moved to Los Angeles where he speculated on real estate and made a fortune. But then he went broke, and he turned to movie acting in 1925, where he met struggling actor Gary Cooper, and the two became great friends, trying to get roles at the same time. But unlike Cooper, who became a major star, Brennan spent almost a decade playing very minor roles (often uncredited). In 1932, he had an accident while filming a movie and lost most of his teeth, and from that point on, he played people much older than himself, often hillbillies! But he finally had a major role in "Come and Get It" in 1936, and he won the first Best Supporting Actor Oscar (the first of three he would win), and he had major success from then on. Some of his roles include Red River, Bride of Frankenstein, and My Darling Clementine. He appeared in several movies with Gary Cooper, including Sergeant York and Meet John Doe. He had much fame later in life as the star of TV's "The Real McCoys".

Thanks. It reads very well to me, he was a very popular character in Hollywood.

Exellent supporting actor. I always thought that Walter B
and BARRY FITZGERALD (particularly in THE QUIET MAN) have some of the best performances in film history, in my humble opinion.

WESTWARD THE WOMEN 1951, STORY BY FRANK CAPRA

Patience Hawley (Hope Emerson):[b][to the awaiting bridegrooms] You can look us over, but don't think you're going to do the choosing! All the way from Independence, I've been staring at two things: one was this picture and the other was the rump of a mule... and don't ask me which was prettier![/b]

US INSERT




Doubt this western will ever be considered one of the best. But it is for me. Women are no often represented in westerns (or in films) like this. These are tough. Hope Emerson is great in this film.

Those are great posters, Rosa.

Your Hanging Tree post made me think of this classic.

Does anyone here have any paper for Liberty Valance?

And then one day I was no child no more. watched it as an adult. And it blew my mind.

The Spanish one sheet is really nice.  Might be my favorite.

What a movie.

If you never saw it, seek out The Sea Wolf. Barry Fitzgerald gives a chilling performance as "Cookie"!

The Duke looks ready to kick some ass.
Great poster.
That film is one of my desert island favorites.
Can watch it over and over and over...

What a great taste you both have  ;D

Those two are my preferred papers. The Spanish is superb because it has a huge imo of James S. And it is different.

but the half sheet, well, i love that one. The Duke looks like he is about to walk into my living room and that expression is very J Wayne. Nearly went for it at EMP  a couple of weeks ago. It is in my list. So if you see it. Hands off. Coming to Rosa's home Soon.
