A classic

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was included in the ‘1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die’ list, I was quite eager to check it out. To be honest, I’m not usually not a huge fan of such old Westerns but I have to admit that this one was not bad at all.

Lin McAdam rides into town on the trail of Dutch Henry Brown, only to find himself in a shooting competition against him. McAdam wins the prize, a one-in-a-thousand Winchester rifle, but Dutch steals it and leaves town. McAdam follows, intent on settling his old quarrel, while the rifle keeps changing hands and touching a number of lives.

" Notes: To be honest, I’m not usually not a huge fan of such old Westerns but I have to admit that this one was not bad at all. Indeed, I really liked a how they mixed a rather generic vendetta with the odyssey of a precious stolen rifle. Indeed, while James Stewart’s character kept hunting for his nemesis, which was rather generic, it seemed that his stolen rifle was somehow cursed as every new owner managed to keep it only for a short while and most of them violently died in the process.

TCM's Essentials: 52 Must See Movies (52 movies items)

"“This movie started a whole new trend in Hollywood. It was the first in which an actor was not paid much money upfront but was given a percentage deal, and that’s because Universal couldn’t afford a big star like Jimmy Stewart…. It turned the whole industry around.” -Robert Osborne “The 50s are really the peak of these morally complex westerns…. The heroes are battle-weary, there’s an ambivalence about violence, I think there’s more interest in male-female relationships becau"

Slant's 100 Best Westerns of All Time (100 movies items)

"Anthony Mann came to the western in 1950, with no less than three electrifying oaters. The Devil’s Doorway humanizes Robert Taylor’s Native American rebel without condescension or pious speechifying, while The Furies captures the complex, crazy synergy between Barbara Stanwyck’s prairie Electra and Walter Huston’s cattle-ranch patriarch. It was in Winchester ’73, however, that the filmmaker located the ideal actor for his dissections of cowboy heroism. Here, the James Stewart who rides"

100 Greatest Golden Age Hollywood Films (100 movies items)

"The first of five Westerns director Anthony Mann made in collaboration with star James Stewart, 'Winchester '73' is an episodic tale with an experimental structure which also helped Stewart redefine his aww-shucks reputation by providing him with the template for the neurotic, psychologically troubled cowboy characters he would establish as another string to his already-considerably-strung bow. The film makes its titular firearm a character in itself and the story is dictated by whose hands this"
