The Missing (2003)

Dir. Ron Howard IMDb 6.4

New Mexico, 1885. Seriously underrated, awesome movie. Cate plays a revisionist version of Dr Quinn, and demonstrates that style need not be compromised on the icy frontier. Lee Jones adds a much needed lighter touch with his ‘gone native’ persona. El brujo paso todo.

Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid (1973)

Dir. Sam Peckinpah IMDb 7.3

 

They seem to have played about with history for the film. Garrett was a rather ordinary if ambitious bureaucratic type. Billy was more like Dylan in the film. Still, who’s complaining, Coburn and Kristofferson are superb, the grieving widow by the lake is heart-wrenching, and with the sound track and scenery, this film definitely rates a 10.

Quotes from Geronimo

\”I was warmed by the sun, rocked by the winds and sheltered by the trees as other Indian babes. I was living peaceably when people began to speak bad of me. Now I can eat well, sleep well and be glad. I can go everywhere with a good feeling.

The soldiers never explained to the government when an Indian was wronged, but reported the misdeeds of the Indians. We took an oath not to do any wrong to each other or to scheme against each other.

Getting Lost in Louisiana: St. Bernard: From Old Arabi to Shell Beach

The day was still early when we left Port Hudson, so we headed toward St. Francisville to pick up a bite to eat at Magnolia Cafe. On a whim, we decided to drive to the edge of town to view the Mississippi River and were surprised to find the road leading nearly straight up to the water’s edge. From here, we turned back and stopped off to investigate an old train car left behind from the West Feliciana Railroad. The kids climbed over every inch of it before we herded them back into the car to find out if the road was open to Cat Island.
