My daughter caught Beverly Garland in Gunslinger (1956, above) yesterday (on broadcast TV!) and loved it. She thought Beverly was about the coolest thing ever — which, of course, she is. She also thought her horse was pretty.
Blake Lucas suggested Johnny Guitar (1954) as a followup, and I thought of Hellfire (1949, below).
By then, this was looking like something we could all have fun with. So, while I have the opportunity to turn my little girl into a (cap) pistol-packing 50s Western fan, let’s program a 12-year-old girl’s 50s Western Film Festival. Put your picks in a comment.
You know, maybe it’s time 50 Westerns From The 50s had a guest blogger.
