No, I’m not watching Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) lol though I enjoyed the first one. Let’s see what The Big Short (2015) is. Rated R. Hrmm….
Credit and housing bubble collapse. Christian Bale. Sigh. I don’t recall ever enjoying a banking film. Pass. What else do we have? Mrrowww! Good call, a classic western it is! Mrowww! YES, Glenn Ford!!
Fate is the Hunter (1964) it is and no, I have no clue about it, other than we enjoyed it the first time we saw it, last summer, which is not a great clue lol I’ll go out on a limb and guess it involves horses pew pew pew and Ford having an incredibly dirty/bent up hat that he seemed to wear in all of his later westerns lol oh, and a romance too lol
Mrrowww! Indeed, let’s find out!
Ooh, another white and black one!
OOOOOOOOOOOOOH haha, it’s not a western at all. MAN, I remember this.
Okay, Rod Taylor is an airline pilot. There’s a crash and Ford (ooh, Suzanne Pleshette too!) is the one who figures the cause out. There’s a LOT of tension in the film and, Nancy Kwan, as, someone. I thought there was a love interest/wife, but I don’t remember. Kwan plays Sally Fraser & we’ll find out who that is, at some point….
The trivia says Dorothy Malone’s in the film but she’s not in the credits. I think I remember that. Jane Russell’s also listed as is Wally Cox.
Ford is simply outstanding as Sam McBane.
We also have Robert J. Wilke (he of a staggering 301 acting credits) who was in everything back then.
The film in part turns into a media circus and everyone wants to blame the pilot. Ford however….
Where’s Kwan? Oh, hrmm….
Anyway, the investigation unfolds & Ford retraces Taylor’s steps.
Enter Russell via flashback wherein we explore how Ford and Taylor met.
The song Blue Moon is a common theme throughout lol
Yay, there’s Kwan lol
We learn more about Taylor’s character through his romances/flashbacks.
The tension however mounts as the question burns ever stronger – what caused the plane to crash?
“Push it back!”🙂 incredible scene🙂
Pleshette I think, is the real star of the picture🙂
Ford however is simply fantastic as he figures it all out🙂
Truly superior! 4.5/5 & there’s his friends🙂
