One of the things I like about WordPress is all the statistical/analytical stuff that comes with it. It’ll tell you everything from the number of hits to which posts are the most popular to referrals from other sites. It’s a pretty useful tool, I think. And if nothing else, it’s just kinda cool to look at all the charts.
This morning, I noticed something particularly interesting. There’s a feature that shows you the searches people used to reach your blog. Usually, they’re pretty self-explanatory: “Budd Boetticher” or “Curse Of The Undead,” for instance. Pretty mundane stuff.
But sometime last night, somebody found their way to 50 Westerns From The 50s via “underwear from westerns.” Hunh?
Not exactly sure what they were looking for, but I have a feeling that person was disappointed by what they found. So, here are a couple things to hopefully make it up to ‘em.
First, here’s Robert Mitchum in his long johns from Howard Hawks’ El Dorado (1966).
Next, a pretty silly publicity still of Charlene Holt from the same film (looks more like something outta Son Of Paleface.)
What’s odd about this whole exercise is that in order to find these photos, I had to pretty much do the same goofy search that seemed so weird to me this morning.
