Ok, we'll get back to everlasting life after this brief intermission.
For now, we'd rather talk about Gary Cooper, wouldn't we? K's a fan, so is Bandit. And I'm sure we're not alone. Drop-dead handsome, droll, sweet, and that fucker could ride (Gary, not K -- at least, not to my knowledge). Did all his own horseback stunts.
Weird that youtube has any scene from the obscure Gable films, but all I could find on Coop was the do-gooder stuff everyone knows, like High Noon, Meet John Doe, Mr. Deeds... Ho-hum.
I'll name one film that's far far superior, and two others that are not great, but really interesting: The Westerner, The Hanging Tree, and Along Came Jones.
The Westerner has humor, romance, riding, and Walter Brennan and Cooper in bed.
Unfortunately, this is all I could find. Pity you have to miss the dialogue, 'cause it's brilliant. Oh, but he's a pretty man, is he not. Watch that balance on horseback, it's impossible. And he's riding a true cowboy horse -- a big pie-faced, roman-nosed quarter. With a split ear bridle. And a plain old curb bit. and his hand is dead quiet on that horse's mouth. But now I'm gushing.
