Ride with the Devil

<< < (2/4) > >>

Major 2:
In "Red River" when the Duke & Walter Brennon first break off
Wayne has a OT Colt not sure if it's a conversion or C&B either way it's got to be an original.

Every show I did I tried my best to get PC hardware....
"Into The West" was about my last.... I bought over Doz. each of Uberti 51's & 60's
along with other long guns too (both Flint & cap lock some were originals , others distressed some )

The Elderly Kid:
The film was based on Daniel Woodrell's novel "Woe to Live On." It's a great read if you can find it. It was reissued with the title "Ride With the Devil" when the film was released. Woodrell has been called "the hillbilly Shakespeare." Another of his books was filmed recently as "Winter's Bone." The Missouri Ozarks form the setting for much of his work.
I loved the use of 19th century language in the film. One character, asked why he is sprucing up his beard and moustache, says: "I go to call upon a young lady who finds my attentions, if I do not flatter myself unduly, not unwelcome."
I guess only a foreign director like Ang Lee would dare to make a movie that depicts Missouri Bushwhackers sympathetic.

Mogorilla:
Us bushwackers are sympathetic! ;D
One of my favorites, lots of Kansas City folk in the back drop.

In my opinion, there was really no right or wrong side in the Civil War. Both sides had their heros and villians and both sides did things they should not be proud of. Also, many misinformed people don't even know the reason the war was fought in the first place. They just believe the PC reason and it is not the main reason. It is terrible there is so much ignorance about a war that was so important in our history.

I always believe the addage, those who ignore the mistakes of history are condemned to repeat them.
