  • Rio Bravo on TCM 10:30PM E.S.T. tonight

    05/06/2009 3:29:55 PM PDT · by ReformationFan · 17 replies · 1,012+ views
    It has been said that director Howard Hawks made Rio Bravo (1959) as a reaction to two popular westerns which angered him - High Noon (1952) and 3:10 to Yuma (1957). His comment on the former was, "I didn't think a good sheriff was going to go running around town like a chicken with his head off asking for help, and finally his Quaker wife had to save him." Hawks also considered 3:10 to Yuma, which had outlaw Glenn Ford playing psychological games with lawman Van Heflin, "a lot of nonsense." So Rio Bravo was the director's take on heroism...

    WHEN WE WERE COWBOYS... We Were Invincible Golda Meir once said (paraphrase) "... the fighting will stop when they love their children more than they hate us." I've said multiple times that the #1 killers of Palestinian children--or any child whose parents follow Islam--are Palestinian adults. The left's mantra of "Won't someone puhlease think of the children?" rings hollow and impotent given their appalling inaction on behalf of the children who truly need it--children of Islam. Their suffering is inexcusably ignored by these self-styled paragons of the defenseless. These little ones are on their own, left to their own devices,...

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP)—Two workers were injured, one seriously, when they slipped and fell from a roof area of Cowboys Stadium while doing maintenance Thursday morning, authorities said. The two were working on the top hatch of the retractable-roof venue around 7:20 a.m. when they slipped, Assistant Fire Chief Don Crowson said. They were not using “fall protection,” he said. The workers fell from an upper roof to a lower section, police spokeswoman Tiara Ellis Richard said. Live TV coverage showed fire department crews on the roof of the nearly $1.2 billion stadium, where the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys began playing this...

    The Cowboys and Tony Romo came out gunning in the first quarter. Mixing up running and passing plays, they made their way down field almost at will. The 49er defense had no answers for the dominating play of the offensive line. That was the key for Romo and company throughout the entire first half. On a few pass plays Romo dropped back and took some long looks before he decided where to execute. On one play Austin was so wide open for so long it looked like the defense did'nt even know he was there untill he made a sliding...

All they can see is that we have lost players, including three starters. A superficial analysis will tell you that’s bad....

As I look up and down this roster there are question marks in only two areas. One of them is the offensive line. The other is – well, you’ll just have to come back here and read about it when it comes out. Overall, they’re in decent shape if the starters stay healthy. Consider last year.

Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple said all players and coaches were accounted for, and he didn't know the extent of the injuries to the four staff members, who were hospitalized. "They were right in the middle of practice and they were in the middle of the field, which was not good," said WFAA-TV photojournalist Arnold Payne who was on the sidelines of the indoor practice field.

Actually, the era of good TV has long since passed. But the black and white clips of Roy Rogers' Hollywood in this week's memorial reviews, provide a jolting look at how far we have slipped. Roy Rogers was wholesome. His episodes never offended decency.

    October 26, 1881 Shootout at the OK Corral On this day in 1881, the Earp brothers face off against the Clanton-McLaury gang in a legendary shootout at the OK Corral in Tombstone, Arizona. After silver was discovered nearby in 1877, Tombstone quickly grew into one of the richest mining towns in the Southwest. Wyatt Earp, a former Kansas police officer working as a bank security guard, and his brothers, Morgan and Virgil, the town marshal, represented "law and order" in Tombstone, though they also had reputations as being power-hungry and ruthless. The Clantons and McLaurys were cowboys who lived on...

    A Cowboys team inspired by its best start in 24 years, a franchise desperate to return to the NFL's elite, now has a better idea of what lies ahead.

    IRVING, Texas (AP) -- When Tony Romo began chasing a snap that flew over his head, two thoughts raced through his mind. "Don't give up a touchdown," he said, "and don't get killed." After making things worse by knocking the ball farther away, Romo finally grabbed it 33 yards behind the line of scrimmage. Yet instead of falling on the ball or throwing it away, Romo took off running. And running. And running. By following his blockers and making a guy miss on his own, Romo recovered all the yards he'd lost, plus gained four more -- exactly what the...

He writes everything down to make sure he doesn't forget. On occasion, depression sets in, forcing him to retreat from the world. Like his physical ailments, the failing memory and periodic despondency are the result of a lifetime...
