    "Donovan's Reef"


    TRIVIA: The characters played by "The Duke" in 'The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" and "Donovan's Reef" have the same name. I think this was some kind of inside joke between Wayne and director John Ford. What is the name?

      Newman is great in "Cool Hand Luke", but George Kennedy steals the movie and Strother Martin is in classic form too.

          I believe that Kennedy won an award for his part.

            Best Car Movie. Best Outlaw Biker Movie. Best Post-Apocalyptic Gloom and Doom Movie. Mad Max.
            Car movie-Smokey and the Bandit.

            Outlaw biker movie. Cant think of any Ive seen in recent memory.
            Gary Busey did a B one in the early 90's called "Chrome soldiers" that I kind of liked.

            Post-drop the bomb-Warlords of the 20th century. VERY low budget film.

            Favourite western-El Dorado with John Wayne (look for a VERY young James Caan playing his sidekick.

            "Gangstah" films? Hate 'em. I do like Scarface but I dont put it in the same catagory with stuff that seems to be a vehicle for has-been rappers who ran out of words that rhyme with 9,be-yatch,crack and hoe.

            Favourite horror film-Who remembers "Ghost story"?

                Yeah, Caan as "Mississippi". The scene where he calls his friend's killer out and then kills him with a throwing knife is memorable. I also like Arthur Honeycut as "Bull", the old Indian fighter with his Colt rifle. But the absolute most classic part of the movie is the mixture they come up with to make sure Robert Mitchum's character doesn't drink anymore. I remember it included:

                Crotin Oil !
                Ipecac !!
                Gun powder !!!!


                Its the only reason I learned Poe's poem "El Dorado".

                Gaily Bedight a gallant knight, in sunshine and in shadow
                Had journeyed long, singing a song, in search of El Dorado
                As his strength failed him at length, he found a pilgrim shadow
                Shadow he said, where can it be, this land called El Dorado
                Over the mountains of the moon, and down the valley of shadow
                Ride, boldly ride the shade replied, if you seek for El Dorado


                Ride, boldly ride!
