directed by Don Siegel
USA 1976

 

 J.B. Books, a 60ish gunfighter, finds that he has stomach cancer and two months to live. He takes a room with Bond Rogers and her son, Gillom to wait until death comes. Of course, his very presence starts off events in the town. The Marshal comes, prepared to die in a shootout, Gillom tries to idolize him, Bond first is disgusted and then pities him. Then, realizing that he will die in great pain, he comes up with an idea to go out with a bang.

Comments:

Again, this is the same transfer of the original Paramount release - exact same disc in fact. The DVD has simply been reissued and repackaged to be included in a few Boxset options (of which we recommend the 10-disc'er, exclusive to Amazon, if you don't own any part of these or just one or two already). The image may be the best in this recently re-released crop. I really respect Paramount for not falling into the trap of digital manipulations to improve brightness levels - this is dark at times because it was meant to be dark. Original audio - those awful yellow subtitles and a nice featurette with interviews and a trailer are the supplements. The price again is good as is the film. Great to see Jimmy Stewart teamed again with Wayne... if only briefly. We recommend !
