40 Guns is a very strange and interesting western by Sam Fuller. Nolascape, who produces and hosts our show says this:
What a film.
I had never seen or even heard of it until Henry and Jonathan put it in the frame for a Conversation.
From one point of view, it can look like a collection of horse opera clichés. A pace or two to the side to let the light hit it from another angle, and it is Sophocles set against the unfinished clapboard fronts of a prairie pioneer town instead of the columns of a Mycenaean palace. Are the two bath scenes just non-sequitur comedy skits with cowboy song musical accompaniment, or are they choral interludes in a play of destiny?
Henry and Jonathan will figure it out.
Indeed we will...and do. And, you should too. Improve your film buffery...get into the new film buffet- CONVERSATIONS.
