Yes.....the days of John Wayne, Ronald Reagan, and Charlton Heston will end with the death of Selleck.......which is about the only of the "cowboy actors" left who's conservative enough to not just "act" American history, but believe in foundational truths..............rats, did it again!!!!! :shock:

You're right again, my friend. None of the new ones coming through Hollyweird have a western heart that I can see. Danged shame...we'll soon be as extinct as the dodo!

Yes, Senator Eugene McCarthy proved all actors and entertainers were communists.

Seriously, I love JJ. It is something of a "cult movie." NOT for the bogus history, costuming, Italian guns, but for the story and scenery. Maybe music too.

Nope. It was Sen. Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin, not Sen. Eugene McCarthy of Minnesota. And not all Hollywood types are Communists. In fact, Hollywood is a hotbed of right-wing conservatism. It's just that the real movers and shakers behind the scenes aren't in the limelight like the "stars" are.

Redford is a Limp-Wristed-Leftist-Liberal Socialist, which is right next door to being a communist...! Knowing that ruins watching any movie he's made, for me...

Folks just a reminder that we leave politics at the door when we come in because of the trouble it causes.
Thanks again.

This is my favorite movie...I can watch it over and over. Even with its flaws in history or guns..or costumes,it stil moves me.
I think we should remember that this movie started alot of us in buckskinng and muzzleloading.
Most of the script can be traced back to George Ruxton and his novel "Life in the Far West" .
Ruxton wrote this book based on his adventures in Mexico and the American Southwest 1846-47.
It is my favorite "mountain man" novel and worth reading again and again.
I know the movie is based on "Mountain man" by Fisher....and "Crow killer" by Thorp and Bunker.
But Ruxton is still a strong force in the film.

J.J. probably got 90% of re-enactors to first get interested. The one that got me going was....Man In The Wilderness....Richard Harris...... The "core" idea for the story came from the Hugh Glass saga. If you haven't seen it, you owe it to yourself.
