Totnes- the Tombstone of England
[QUOTE=Colorado Bob;98776]I had thought there was a thread for the upcoming remake of Angel and the Badman, but I can't seem to find it. At any rate, I can across a web article saying that it a Hallmark Channel production, starring Lou Diamond Phillips in the Quirt Evans role, and it is supposed to air March 4th.
I saw this remake quite some time ago, at least 6 months. As expected, it's a VERY poor job, but they DID try. Phillips was Ok, but the Low budget, bad acting, etc killed it. I watched until the bar fight-I was surprised they could afford a bar set-and had to finally turn it off.
I found a DVD of Angel and the Badman with a better picture than my first DVD, so I redid the screencaps. That is... I did all the action sequences (my fave movie cowboy Ben Johnson doubled for John Wayne in the riding scenes) plus this time I did dozens of pics of John Wayne and Gail Russell and the other actors and anything else I found visually interesting. The total is 379 pictures. Go here to find the album with all the pics: http://benjohnsonscreencaps.shutterfly.com/stunts.
Here are a few of the screencaps.
I love this movie! I watched it again two days ago - the black and white original version (I have colorized version on DVD too), and it has not lost its magic, although I have seen it a dozen times. The Duke as the bad guy who becomes good in the end is wonderful and John Wayne and Gail Russell are a real fine couple!
I've always loved this one too. Has it ever been remastered? My copy is rather dark and grainy in some spots.
"I couldn't go to sleep at night if the director didn't call 'cut'. "
The black and white version I bought here in Germany on DVD is dark too. The colorized version from my old VHS cassette looks much better!
One of my fave Duke westerns.
I've only seen it in black and white, haven't seen a colourized version in the UK.
The DVD is actually pretty good quality and well mastered.
What exactly made him a badman? We never really saw him rob a bank? Was it because he hung out with Riff Raff? Or was it just his reputation as a tough guy? Anyway, Good movie! i like it!
I think one reason he is "the bad man" is because in the Quaker community, any kind of violence is considered wrong. Duke's character was a known gun-slinger - he is the last guy those parents would want their daughter falling in love with. And of course, he did hang out with the "wrong" crowd, too.
Watched this recently and I enjoyed it, im not much of a love story guy but I liked seeing how Duke was conflicted and I enoyed the quaker bits. I would have liked to have seen Duke torn over women like this in other stories, its a great plot
