    MAKES MY TOP 5 WESTERNS EVER

    With the advent of the HBO series Deadwood, many of you by your own means have discovered this American western classic, directed by Cecil B. Demile and starring one of the greatest westerners ever Gary Cooper. The Plainsman will hold you in its' hand from start to finish. How can you say that this is Cooper's finest performance yet I say that if you have not seen his performance in The Plainsman then I say that your Gary Cooper experince is incomplete. Just try to forget that this is a Cecil B. Demille movie and naturally historical accuracy goes out the window. Try if you can to ignore the list of western legends that pass through this movie, James Butler Hickok{Wild Bill}, Buffalo Bill Cody, G. A. Custer, Calamity Jane, Jack McCall, and Custers' scout Gabby Hayes{Breezy}. Somehow the glory and essence of all these characters are captured by the great manipulator Demille. See the marvelous story telling skill of Cooper while trapped with the cavalry on the river. And wonder out loud about Coopers'lighning fast draw of two pistols and maintaining that tight killer grin with his lips. Great quotes from Hickoks' life are caught if you know where to look but don't miss the quote 'you're not leaving town Latimer unless dead men can walk' for anything, a direct quote from young Hickok in Springfield, Mo. Jean Arthurs' Calamity Jane is marvelous in her lose/lose situation with Coopers' Hickok. This is the movie that contains the classic scene where Coop is held over the fire pit to make Calamity tell the chief where the soldiers take many, many bullets. In the end, Hickok is pensive and reflective as he surely must have been in real life, 'Mrs, Cody was right, what right do I have to say who is to live and who is to die' also is captured. So we have a wonderful movie that reminds the young and old alike that at one time all at once, all of these legends really did co-exist together as only Demille could present
