IMDb has it as a 26 minutes long short, so I'm counting you as 92 points total until you watch another 34 minutes worth of shorts.
IMDBs length on this one isn't very reliable. The video I watched provided by WalterNeff is 42 minutes of actual footage. I'll send you a link to the conversation about it in PM, Shugs.

And your poetry will now be written with blood.Show

2. Ed ora... raccomanda l'anima a Dio! / Mardaneh bekosh / Stranger Say Your Prayers / etc, etc (Demofilo Fidani, 1968)
3. The Misfits (John Huston, 1961)
4. Silverado (Lawrence Kasdan, 1985) (re-watch)
5. Pale Rider (Clint Eastwood, 1985) (re-watch)
6. Winnetou - 1. Teil / Apache Gold (Harald Reinl, 1963)
7. Winnetou - 2. Teil / Winnetou - Last of the Renegades (Harald Reinl, 1964)
8. Winnetou - 3. Teil / Winnetou - The Last Shot / The Desperado Trail (Harald Reinl, 1965)
9. Heaven's Gate (Michael Cimino, 1980)

Despite being a pretty big western fan for, oh, almost 30 years, I've never gotten around to this behemoth - and I'm also not scared of long films - until now. Why? Well, my experiences with Michael Cimino are... seeing Year of the Dragon when it was new and HAAATTTINNGG it like nothing I'd ever seen at the time; moderately liking Thunderbolt and Lightfoot on VHS a few years later; pretty much disliking The Deer Hunter when I finally got to that one about a decade ago. I guess I buy into the self-indulgent macho bullshit image of the guy and his films overall.

But I finally did it, and I'm sure glad I waited for the Criterion edition, because the glory of this film is most definitely in it's visuals. Yeah it's dirty and dusty much of the time - as I remember, Ebert hated it and.... looking at his review I see I'm right, he despises it in great part for how "a grim industrial pall hangs over everything". I think maybe he missed the point, for this is a film in which the savagery of unrestrained capitalism is at work throughout, undermining and destroying the promise of liberation that the first sequence at Harvard expresses so joyously. And it's not all ugly and dirty, though perhaps this is one film that actually looks better now than it did in cinema, I have no idea. At any rate I think it has a pretty nicely varied visual texture, with the much of the city (Casper, WY) contrasting with the openness of the prairies, the purity of the mountains, and even a different kind of muck in the small town where most of the action takes place.

As to that action - well, this film ought to be getting renewed attention not just because of this sparkly Criterion edition but also because of the heart of the story - the capitalist exploitation of, and attempted destruction of, new immigrants to that particular part of the west. It's a story as old as the west and one told a million times in westerns - the violence and hatred of the cattle barons towards anybody who might impinge on "their" stolen-from-the-natives grazing grounds. It's probably never been told at this length and this detail, but unfortunately the political-economic story which is the heart of the narrative still feels a bit incomplete and sketchy even after 3 2/3 hours, mostly because of the great amount of time spent on the love triangle between the characters played by Kris Kristofferson, Isabelle Huppert, and Christopher Walken as, respectively, the marshall of Johnson County (this is based, loosely, on the real Johnson County War of 1892), a prostitute and madam of the local whorehouse, and an employee of the cattlemen who realizes too late that his bosses intend to commit genocide. I just didn't find a lot of the interpersonal stuff all that interesting, and even with these great actors and others like Jeff Bridges and Sam Waterston (in an atypical role as the sadly underdeveloped main bad guy), it simply doesn't add up to a cohesive and meaningful work. But it's certainly worth looking at for it's physical beauty, and some of the actors, particularly Walken, handle themselves quite nicely.
An alternate view from a genius immigration expertShow

I saw this movie the other day because one of my advisors, I think the pointy-headed Jew guy maybe, told me I should see it. The guy loved it and he was sure I would but what my base love about me is that I am always unpredictable and I didn't but it had some good things even if I know I could do better covfefe. It looked real pretty if you like those mountains and grass and stuff, I think it needs a golf course, Wyoming that's where Jackson Holes and Aspen is right? But anyway this is a long time ago, hundred of years ago around the Civil War or something like that, so they didn't have golf then. Not many people know that. The hero is a guy named Canter or something, and you know he's the good guy cuz he's a tough hombre, and he's the best dresser there. I mean the guy looks really great, I wonder if my company made his suit, looks like it could be one of ours and back then maybe it was even made here and not in Gina. Beautiful black suit, I don't like black, it's good for fat people it makes you thinner but Im in perfect health and haven't gained a pound since the bone spurs came out in 67, anyway the guy isn't fat he just looks so tough in black I guess good guys wear black I think Arnold was in that, good movie. The bad guys are an ugly hairy old sheriff guy and a hooker, you might think I'd like the hooker but she's running the damn cathouse and everybody knows that back then special in Canada it was all men like my grandpa who owned the whores. And that brings up another thing I don't like, the bad guys are all Germans and Russians. The Germans and Russians are the good guys and always have been, they were our allies in two wars! But my friend the Jew-guy tells me things were different back in 16-whatever and I believe him, because I know a lot about history, I was just forgetting, I have so much on my mind, Mueller has fucked me over so bad and its treason and they'll all get their heads chopped off like my friend does it in Arabland. Anyway Candy the man in black, he knows the illegals who don't speak English and are poor are the problem, and they don't have sissy laws in the old west like now and congress getting in his way so he decides to kill them all and there's a big fight. The only bad thing is he dies, but so do most of the dirty peasant ugly euro-trash, some are probably Jews too and not the good Jews who are accountants working for me.. So it wasn't a bigly great movie but it was OK I'll bet Jared would like it he's boring.

112. Bad Men of the Border (1945, Wallace Fox) - 3/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- Bad Men of the Border (1945) was a very average B-western with a guy I'm not too familiar with in a lead-setting - Kirby Grant. And to be honest I still don't feel I'm very familiar with him after this. Not a guy which sets himself apart much, and they figured as much surrounding him with people with more personality. That still didn't help.


113. The Return of the Durango Kid (1945, Derwin Abrahams) - 4/10
--- Charles Starrett had done The Durango Kid (1940) and it took nearly 5 years before the movie series continued and took off, defying what Starrett would be known for. After The Return of the Durango Kid (1945) he would pretty much work as The Durango Kid for the rest of his movie career which ended in 1952. This "relaunch" was okay. Nothing too spectacular about it, but it was a solid western with a good share of music included. The type of western which was popular at the time.


114. Both Barrels Blazing (1945, Derwin Abrahams) - 4/10
--- Getting the feel and shaping of Charles Starrett's Durango Kid character and the impression I get is that Starrett is a good fit for B-westerns. Not the most charismatic guy or anything, but a believable cowboy for this type of format. That's why I enjoyed Both Barrels Blazing (1945). It serves it's purpose and delivers a solid economic action film.


115. Outlaws of the Rockies (1945, Ray Nazarro) - 4/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- Feels like they're trying to do more with the script than your average low budget western, but it's still fairly simplistic. Charles Starrett and his Durango Kid continues to deliver in a likable manner and it's yet another serviceable programmer from Colombia Pictures.


116. Blazing the Western Trail (1945, Vernon Keays) - 4/10
--- What I am noticing in these Durango Kid films is that the bad guys isn't the smartest bunch. The gimmick is more about making fools of the trouble makers on the road to catching them red-handed. It certainly makes the hero look good, but not always a good way to make the action exciting.


117. Lawless Empire (1945, Vernon Keays) - 4/10
--- Though there is not that much difference, I do think these Durango Kid films are closer related to the TV-westerns of the 1950s than it's B-western brothers of the 1930s. More sincere acting, much like the Hopalong Cassidy films, except with a tiny bit more serious tone. Wouldn't claim it's very multi-dimensional, but I'm feeling the action a little bit more then I usually have done for the cheaper ones from this period. Lawless Empire (1945) is another solid one, but I'm not sure Vernon Keays is the best one directing these.


118. Texas Panhandle (1945, Ray Nazarro) - 3/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- Nothing really bad about it, but to me it's probable the least interesting of The Durango Kid films of 1945. A little more run-of-the-mill stuff with the type of stock footage editing most associated with poverty westerns. Has it's little moments, but this did seem more rushed than the others.

Okay, I'm going to be annoying and ask whether I can count https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10366438/reference if I watch it 12 times. By my count, I'm already up to 10 viewings (they keep showing it on the music channels over here) and I could easily watch it twice more. Great video. B)

43. Une Corde, Un Colt (1969)
A peculiar western that I found most interesting for its forays into existentialism. I can't remember the last Western I saw that so directly confronted and explored fatalism (perhaps The Homesman?). The peculiarities go further--the movie is not particularly well acted. The action scenes are uniformly bad. The characters are barely sketched. And yet, there's something about the story that is compelling.

44. Rio Lobo (1970)
This movie often gets billed as another Rio Bravo remake, like El Dorado. However, the narrative is different enough that I would say Rio Lobo is its own movie, but it inexplicably reuses some of Rio Bravo's plot elements. Couldn't they have come up with some new ideas? I imagine that one of the reasons it was so tepidly received in 1970 was that viewers during the second half of the movie must have wondered, "Wait, didn't we just see this in El Dorado?" It kind of reminds me of how there were three separate Spider-Man series in a ten-year span. Anyway, outside of that issue, this was better than I expected. The action scenes, particularly the railroad hijacking, were exciting. And I found the typical Wayne repartee enjoyable. Jorge Rivero got some negative reviews for his role, but I found him quite intriguing and would have enjoyed more screen time from him. The one negative note is that Wayne has clearly slowed down in this role. Apparently, he was in poor health, and it shows on screen. One more note: The movie includes brief appearances by David Huddleston (who played the big Lebowski in the Big Lebowski) and Peter Jason (who 35 years later played Con Stapleton in Deadwood).

45. Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here (1969)
A mostly forgettable Indian-on-the-run movie that is very much of its time. It feels almost like a companion piece to 1970's Soldier Blue in its earnest "white people have done some bad things to Indians" attitude. On the other hand, it suffers from how little depth the female characters are given. They are treated mainly as impediments to the storyline. And, of course, this movie suffers from the standard Robert Redford deficit (he makes every movie he's in a little worse). Two more notes: This was blacklisted Abraham Polonsky's first directorial credit in 21 years (since Force of Evil). And this reminds me a lot of two Australian movies from last month's challenge--Sweet Country and The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith.

The general rule is that one rewatch is allowed. If you haven't seen it before you can see it twice. (but people never do)

( i very often see shorts twice, but I have never counted them twice. It just seem so cheap)

119. The Navajo Trail (1945, Howard Bretherton) - 3/10
--- Not reinventing the wild west, but easily a watchable Johnny Mack Brown western if not expecting much. These were done by Monogram, so not much to them, except too much Raymond Hatton, but otherwise fine in all it's cheapness.


120. Gun Smoke (1945, Howard Bretherton) - 4/10
--- Maybe I'm underrating Monogram, for this Johnny Mack Brown felt competent. Maybe they've come to a point where they are improving. Still just a basic B-western, but coming across professional enough to enjoy.


121. Frontier Feud (1945, Lambert Hillyer) - 2/10
--- This one was just a bore. So little energy and very routine. Far from one of Johnny Mack Brown's best.


122. Under Western Skies (1945, Jean Yarbrough) - 4/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- Under Western Skies (1945) is a throw-away light musical comedy in a western setting. I found it cute enough, and it certainly helped having some more familiar figures out west than the usual poverty row bunch. Not much point to this movie, except perhaps hoping to elevate the career of forever B-blond Martha O'Driscoll.


123. West of the Pecos (1945, Edward Killy) - 4/10
--- Robert Mitchum plays the hunky cowboy in a cutsie western with a little action thrown in at the end so to disguise it from being the romantic fluff that it is.


124. Wildfire (1945, Robert Emmett Tansey) - 3/10
--- This was so weird. In the era where only the biggest studios could afford to do a few color pictures a year, here comes what's essentially a Bob Steele poverty row western in full Technicolor!!! Apart from a very slight upgrade in supporting characters, the only thing that separates this and whatever other stinking Bob Steele western out there is the color. Got to love the novelty of that!


125. Northwest Trail (1945, Derwin Abrahams) - 3/10
--- The second Bob Steele color horseback adventure in a row. I'm really curious to know how well Northwest Trail (1945) and Wildfire (1945) were received at the time. Low budget westerns in color was a new thing back then. Wonder if the novelty helped at the box office in anyway at all, or did the word that it was just another poverty row western in disguise spread before it could regenerate the extra cash spent on this? I was also intrigued that the leading lady was Joan Woodbury. A actress almost specializing in playing spoiled rich girls, here as a spoiled rich girl being relegated to doing that act in a western! Anyway, this was too slow and standard to become anything exciting.


126. Santa Fe Saddlemates (1945, Thomas Carr & Yakima Canutt) - 4/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- You know the budget is tight when your stunt man has to help a rookie director on his first feature production. The start of Thomas Carr directorial career, a man born into the business to limited success finding his little way of contributing, with Yakima Canutt helping him along directing this Sunset Carson western. Actually the handy work wasn't that bad, and did shine from time-to-time. A little uneven in pacing, and don't forget it's a B-western, so not never a must-see action rider. But perfectly on par with what Republic Pictures were putting out at the time.

10. Deus e o Diabo na Terra do Sol (Glauber Rocha, 1964)
11. O Dragão da Maldade contra o Santo Guerreiro / Antonio das Mortes (Glauber Rocha, 1969)

One of my thoughts while watching the first of these radical leftist western-protest-histories was "the missing link between Huillet/Straub and Pekinpah?" To which I might add Godard as well - but when you consider that the first one was made in 1964, before Peckinpah's "mature" style came into the fore, and when I'd imagine it would have been hard to see a lot of the early works of the other filmmakers in Brazil (or most places), this seems a pretty silly statement on my part. Mostly it's because I don't know how to place them - they are the first Rocha films I've seen, and the first Brazilian films before the 70s apart from Orfeo negro, and they offer such a distinct film language that I'm rather at a loss for description; it also doesn't help that I probably wasn't in the best mood or state for viewing them when I did, these are films that though quite voluptuous and beautiful in their visuals and perhaps especially their music, demand pretty close concentration when it comes to understanding their politics and characters. So I'm not going to get too much into any of that, and just leave it that while I liked both quite a bit, I'm not quite sure how I feel about them in the context of the pantheon - not sure that I got enough out of the long speeches and very stylized dances, violent sequences, or just scenes of contemplation. What does it all mean? Does it matter that I don't know? Overall I liked the very crisp b/w visuals of the earlier film more and even though it's in 1.33 instead of the 1.66 of the later, color film it seems to define the beauty of these mountainous landscapes better, and give a better sense of the isolation from the world that these bandits, holy fools, and peasants experienced as late as the even of WWII. Of course the second film takes place in the more modern world of the late 60s, and offers the theme of modernity intruding on traditional ways of life in more definition. Both films have absolutely incredible music, mixing the classical work of Villa-Lobos (credited at the beginning of the first film but not listed on IMDb credits, strangely) and a wide variety of traditional and (I assume) contemporary pop music, much of it performed onscreen.

01. The Sisters Brothers -- Audiard, 2018.
02. Dead West a.k.a. Cowboys vs. Vampires -- Myers, 2010.
03. Eyes of Fire -- Crounse, 1983.
04. White Comanche a.k.a. Comanche blanco a.k.a. Rio Hondo -- Briz Mendez, 1968.
05. Northwest Rangers -- Newman, 1942.
06. Welcome to Blood City -- Sasdy, 1977.
07. The Pony Express -- Cruze, 1925.
08. Frank & Jesse -- Boris, 1995.
I've seen so many films about the James brothers that I've lost count; this isn't the worst, but it's nowhere near the best, either. It's an HBO film that is MUCH more interested in promoting the legends about Frank and Jesse James than accounting for any historical fact -- they are unequivocally portrayed as heroes seeking redress here. Bill Paxton is quite good as Frank James, but Rob Lowe (who co-produced)...yikes. He's way too pretty as Jesse -- you can SEE the eyeliner the makeup department used on him, and practically smell the styling product in his fancy, floppy hair. He could be worse, I suppose, but the difference in acting quality is very evident between Paxton and Lowe.

09. Abilene Town -- Marin, 1946.
Randolph Scott is the sheriff caught between feuding cattlemen and homesteaders. Ann Dvorak shows off her impressive legs as the dance hall girl, and Rhonda Fleming (in the good girl role) is paired up with Lloyd Bridges. It was okay, and Scott does his thing, but it doesn't stand out.

10. Don't Fence Me In -- English, 1945.
Roy Rogers western in which Dale Evans is a journalist attempting to hunt down the truth about an outlaw who may not be dead as believed. Evans has an unusually sexy number at the very beginning of the show, and there's a LOT of Gabby Hayes in this one.

11. Oggi a me...domani a te! a.k.a. Today It's Me a.k.a. Today We Kill, Tomorrow We Die! -- Cervi, 1968.
Co-written by Cervi and Dario Argento. Montgomery Ford (a.k.a. Brett Halsey) recruits a gang of professionals to go after the man who wronged him. The big baddie here is played by Tatsuya Nakadai (yeah, you read that right) -- it's odd to hear him dubbed in English. The recruitment process takes a long time and is arguably the best part of the film; it includes some spaghetti western regulars like Bud Spencer and William Berger.

12. Pruncul, petrolul si Ardelenii a.k.a. The Oil, the Baby and the Transylvanians -- Pita, 1981.
Romanian western. I discovered after starting it that it is the third in a trilogy, but a bit of research convinces me that it wasn't too crucial to watch them in order. (I've got my hands on the first two films in the meantime.) The trilogy revolves around the Romanian Brad family trying to make their fortune in the (American) Wild West; in this particular installment, they tangle with some Hungarian settlers and find oil. It was filmed entirely in Romania, and the copy I saw was English-dubbed, with a pretty wild swinging between bad American dubs and some very heavily Romanian-accented English.

Had a "productive" day with the best westerns 1945 had to offer. This also concludes all the westerns of '45 I have at my disposal. Another so-so year with no real killers.


127. Song of Old Wyoming (1945, Robert Emmett Tansey) - 4/10
--- Even the lowest of lows are producing color pictures in 1945! PRC coming with a singing cowboy flick in full color! One starring a golden voiced dude called Eddie Dean. Actually the guy that ended up becoming the star was newcomer Lash La Rue, who ended up sort of a cult figure, including having his own comic book! He sure was one cool anti-hero type character. The film was a bit slow and simplistic. No color can cover-up PRC's limited eye for production detail. But it was intriguing to experience.


128. Senorita from the West (1945, Frank R. Strayer) - 3/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- Allan Jones started his career appearing in some rather great musicals, but by 1945 he was appearing in films like this. No wonder he left to focus on other ventures. Light "radio" musical with some elements of the west, because there's where fame-seeker Bonita Granville comes from, but takes place mostly in an urban setting. Not the worst of supporting characters, but they can't do anything to elevate this poor script idea.


129. The Daltons Ride Again (1945, Ray Taylor) - 5/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- Universal reviving the Daltons with Alan Curtis, Lon Chaney Jr., Kent Taylor & Noah Beery Jr. as the brothers. Tries to focus on their good deeds, but of course can't cover-up everything. Becomes as decent anti-hero western, and even if it's a little hard to sympathize, this becomes a surprisingly engaging story considering it's a B-western. Perhaps not ones for the ages, but for the mid-1940s it's among the better.


130. Saratoga Trunk (1945, Sam Wood) - 6/10
--- An ambitious production starring Gary Cooper & Ingrid Bergman, which probable had more people scratching their heads than anything else. That's why I enjoyed it. So over the top that it becomes grotesque... in a positive way.


131. San Antonio (1945, David Butler, Robert Florey & Raoul Walsh) - 5/10
--- Beautiful to look at. Errol Flynn in full Technicolor always is. They go a little too ambitious with the story with a lot of side elements taking up too much time without adding anything, watering the experience down. Perfectly fine Hollywood eye candy, but the story doesn't have the same great touches as Flynn's legendary adventures.


132. Flame of Barbary Coast (1945, Joseph Kane) - 6/10
--- John Wayne and the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. Got some nice special effects, and otherwise a intriguing love triangle adding Ann Dvorak and the corrupt Joseph Schildkraut to the mix. Not always exciting, but I felt it's strong points weighed-in heavier for a nice time.


133. Dakota (1945, Joseph Kane) - 5/10
--- So this is the famous pairing of John Wayne & Vera Ralston. I can see why Herbert J. Yates was in love with her, and I can see why she was a constant flop. The screen chemistry just isn't there. Even with the adorable act. Dakota (1945) wasn't exactly a coherent film either, but does have it's moments. Walter Brennan was the reason to like this.


134. Salome Where She Danced (1945, Charles Lamont) - 3/10
--- Big budget flop serves only as eye candy for Yvonne De Carlo to shine in a mess of a story.


135. Along Came Jones (1945, Stuart Heisler) - 6/10
--- Gary Cooper continues his run playing off his boyish charms. Here mistaken for a wanted bandit, the gun-shy cowboy tries his best to act the part in the most charming way. Loretta Young, protecting the real bandit, is not so gun-shy and does her best to get the lanky guy out of trouble. I quite liked the scenario. Cooper as a big klutz, Young as the tough gal with a rifle. Thumbs-up. Especially the way it ended.


136. Frontier Gal (1945, Charles Lamont) - 5/10
--- A loving abusive relationship! Would probable be hated by the passionless youth of today for it's violent nature, but Yvonne De Carlo can take care of herself! I'm amazed that they gave her and Rod Cameron another shot after the catastrophic Salome Where She Danced (1945), and in an even more shocking script. Yet, somehow it works for this one. Best in the early parts, as the latter part gets a little mushy with the child and everything. But as long as the relationship was rough, this was almost a outrageous gem. Half-way a The Taming of the Shrew western.

This western spoof could have milked its mistaken identity plot further, but this is generally funny stuff with lots of witty lines, energetic performances, a hilariously near-sighted sheriff (see above) and a more solid and tightly plotted narrative than the average Carry On entry. Charles Hawtrey as an Amerindian is iffy, but at least he avoids adopting a poor American accent as others do. There is memorable shootout too with a fun plumbing twist.

33. Heaven's Gate (1980): 7.0 - More a historic epic like 1900 than a western. It's probably closer to how life really was in the west of the USA in the late 19th century than mostly depicted in the genre. Unfortunate the focus is more on the less interesting romance plot, than the really interesting socio-economical themes.
