BILL CRIDER'S POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
A master actor. Liked all the choices, although High Noon is my least favorite. The acting is fine, but not the premise or plot.
The premise of "High Noon" so incensed John Wayne that he made "Rio Bravo." He hated the idea that the sheriff would go to civilians to try to get help. I can see the point, although what he felt about Lloyd Bridges' character - Cooper's deputy - running away isn't recorded.I really like his choice of "The Outlaw Josie Wales." Dan George was one of the great scene stealers of all times.In just about any scene, whether it's with Clint Eastwood here or with Dustin Hoffman in "Little Big Man" he's shameless in grabbing your attention.
@ Brent McKee: I hadn't thought that about Dan George, but whether he did it intentionally or not, you're absolutely correct! I particularly remember the scene he played with / stole from Art Carney in "Harry and Tonto".
