    My favourite "guilty pleasure" western. The protagonist is sulky and selfpitying (or Dane Clark just wanted out of the movie); and when the pass is reached the movie acquires a weird and squirmy Freudian undertone, probably unintended. Maybe a dozen Indians and half as many horses. Filmed in the ubiquitous Bronson Canyon; b&w and dirt cheap. Fine underscore, however, composer unidentified-- possibly library music.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one disappointed by Seven Samurai.

    If you ever get the chance, there was a TV series about Shane's life after the movie starring David Carradine and Jill Ireland. It's very good, and it unsentimentally shows how ridiculously hard it was to scratch out a living in the Old West.

    And I am one of those who after seeing both Magnificent Seven and Seven Samurai cannot stand watching Magnificent Seven again, as this is like comparing a true masterpiece with a second- or third-rank movie.
