Movie Review by Movie Addict
April 15th, 2013

Favorite Movie Quote: "Some things a man has to do, so he does 'em."

Two classics appeared in 1950: Winchester '73 and me. Well, I may not be a classic, but this film is. A western born out of film noir with blurry morals instead of the clear black and white we are so used to seeing.

This was the first of five classic collaborations between Anthony Mann and James Stewart. Bend of the River came two years later, followed by The Naked Spur, The Far Country and The Man From Laramie in each of the next three years.

The film features a young Shelley Winters as a dance hall girl who is looking to settle down. Her intended doesn't quite measure up, but Stewart is there for the rescue.

With Dan Duryea, Will Geer, and Rock Hudson as an Indian Chief, it is well worth your time, as are the four that follow.
