(ru) wrote: Sam Whiskey is really the beginning of Burt Reynolds' rise to superstardom. He had also been bumming around doing episodes of various TV shows, but never got a real break as a leading man until Sam Whiskey came along. It wasn't enough to push him over the top, but it enough to get him noticed for bigger and more successful projects. Although this movie is billed as a comedy western, the movie never manages to be funny. It attempts to pull off some silly character moments as well as a bit of slapstick, but it all falls pretty flat for the most part. The characters themselves aren't quite fleshed out enough either, leaving the actors with little to do, try as they might. The movie's plot and how it's executed is quite flaccid as well. However, somehow the movie manages to retain some charm, which is mostly due to the presence of its actors, all of whom seem to be more in on the joke than they initially let on at times. Fans of Burt Reynolds' career, especially his early days before his southern-fried persona hit the mainstream, may want to seek it out. Others, however, may not find there's much here to look forward to.
(jp) wrote: "Wagon Master" is one of the warmest, most charming films John Ford ever made, and it's certainly among the best westerns ever made by anyone. The introduction of the villainous Clegg family (and, by extension, a clearer, more dangerous sense of conflict) to the Mormon wagon train in the film's second half feels a bit perfunctory, but it works, sometimes very much so, even if the Cleggs do always feel a bit like a second-rate version of the Clanton family from Ford's own "My Darling Celementine" from four years earlier. Charles Kemp does his best Quiet Menacing, but he's no Walter Brennan. But the film's real strength--and what seems to command Ford's interest--the isn't the action, but rather the gradual accumulation of quiet incident, not the conflict, but the film's gentle, even comic approach to character and community, all rendered joyously through some tremendous casting, music, and Ford's own, perfect, almost dancelike sense of easy, loping mis-en-scene. A beautiful film.
