McLintock! (1963)
Wayne is his typical self, but sadly O'Hara takes on a rare unlikable role in what is a much less successful film than their previous pairing, "The Quiet Man".

Not the typical Cassavettes direction and not the typical Judy Garland fare; but Burt Lancaster is right at home.

Irma la Douce (1963)



Director: Billy Wilder
His 19th movie
My 16th movie watched from the director


Another incredible script by Billy Wilder, buoyed by two very strong leads. The only thing I didn't like was it was too long for the story told. They could have editing 20 minutes off and it would have been tighter and better. Some of the scenes unnecessarily drag. Something that happened in movies far more often in this era.

The film itself is a charade

The original adaptation is raw, creepier and tougher than the remake; but perhaps because of nostalgia reasons I still like the remake more.
