It’s 3:10 am
I had to reblog this list from one of the smartest and most respected film voices that I read,John Charet. The man knows his films and his lists of his favorite films are amazing to check out. But I had to tweak John a little bit on his list of Westerns when he didn’t post only the BEST Western ever made,”Have Gun,Will Travel”. Now I can you all get a laugh because the cheetah was named Paladin after Richard Boone’s iconic portrayal of the gentleman gunfighter.
But ignoring that small slight,the list is full of great films and TV series,its clear that John put a lot of effort and thought before posting his list and any serious film buff should check it out. I have far too few of these classics in my own collection,you just don’t see them that much in the wild and that includes yard sales and thrift stores.
With digitial getting so much attention these days,one wonders if these films will be re-released or will they slowly fade away a few films a year.
The cheetah and I have reviewed a few Westerns including the “Lawman” TV series.
After posting this,I think it may be overdue for our look at “Have Gun,Will Travel”.
Now go read John’s blog,hit his “Follow” button and in the comment section…tell him “Paladin sent me”.
