A classic

The main reason why I wanted to watch this flick was because it was included in the list ‘1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die’. To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of such old Westerns and I believe that at least half of them could or should be removed from this otherwise really awesome list.

Vienna has built a saloon outside of town, and she hopes to build her own town once the railroad is put through, but the townsfolk want her gone. When four men hold up a stagecoach and kill a man the town officials, led by Emma Small, come to the saloon to grab four of Vienna's friends, the Dancin' Kid and his men. Vienna stands strong against them, and is aided by the presence of an old acquaintance of hers, Johnny Guitar, who is not what he seems.

PopMatter's Essential Film Performances - 2012 (50 movies items)

"LIFE SUPPORT Mercedes McCambridge Cinema doesn’t get any better than Nicholas Ray’s Johnny Guitar, and character acting doesn’t get any better than Mercedes McCambridge in Johnny Guitar. Ray’s Trucolor Western is often described as campy—and it is—but it’s also, quite in tandem, one of the finest political allegories Hollywood ever produced, its static staging and philosophical heft reminiscent of Greek tragedy, as much as anything Anthony Mann ever did. Speaking of Mann, McCambri"

Anyway, in this genre, I have to admit it, this movie was not bad at all and I definitely had a weak spot for the damned thing.

Eventually, the biggest issue with this movie (or biggest draw, depending on who you would ask)  is that the story was rat” read more

50 Great Movies That Were Not Nominated For Any Os (50 movies items)

"Despite, or perhaps because of it being the most purely American of genres, the Academy have generally looked down on Westerns. Only three films in the genre (“Cimarron,” “Dances With Wolves” and “Unforgiven”) have ever won Best Picture. As such, it shouldn’t be surprising that Nicholas Ray’s “Johnny Guitar,” the Joan Crawford-starring weird, offbeat, feminist entry in the chronicle of America’s frontier, was totally excluded from the Oscars that year (though the film was b"
