cold-blooded gunslinger whom she takes into her home after he is wounded. 

It never was presented as a remake of Angel and the Badman 1974 but it’s very similar.

I loved this movie enough to make a 3 part video of the story, shown below.  I watch my DVD yearly.



Winchester (Creepy) with Helen Mirren


New trailer, photos and poster have been released for period set thriller horror WINCHESTER in which Helen Mirren plays the famous heiress to the gun production empire.
WINCHESTER out next February, sees Helen Mirren staring as the wealthy recluse who feared she was being haunted by the souls of people who were killed by the Winchester Repeating Rifle. Following the deaths of her husband and child, she threw herself into the never ending construction of an enormous  mansion with more than 160 rooms, complete with staircases that lead nowhere, designed to keep the evil spirits at bay. When sceptical San Francisco psychiatrist Eric Price (Jason Clarke) is dispatched to the estate to evaluate Sarah, he learns that her obsession might not be so insane after all.  The Queen Anne Victorian style house, whose construction began in 1884 and continued until Sarah Winchester’s death on September 5, 1922, can still be seen in California and it is a big tourist attraction.
The movie and the ghosts are out next month


The construction of the house continued for almost 40 years

 circa 1619 America
 British Sky has released a trailer for the second season of another of their historical dramas JAMESTOWN. 

The second season of the drama, which was a huge success for Sky last year, will start airing this February!
Set in the early 17th Century, tells the story of three courageous, dynamic women who leave their dark pasts behind in England, and make the journey of a lifetime across the ocean for a new life in America as the wives of the male colonists who have lived more than 10 years without women. The first season showed them settling and finding their place bravely and courageously in the town ruled by men and hunger for gold and power. As you remember the final scene had a shocker of black slaves being brought into JAMESTOWN and the second season will obviously deal with all the ghosts that were disturbed by it

Hidden Figures


“I like her numbers,” astronaut John Glenn (Glen Powell) announces after witnessing unheralded NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson) crack a previously unsolvable equation. With luck, audiences will echo Glenn’s sentiments when 20th Century Fox unveils the complete cut of Hidden Figures, an inspirational and patriotic drama that the studio just teased at the Toronto International Film Festival.

One of the great things about movies is that they can reveal things to the general public that most never knew before. Hidden Figures does this by shining a light on a part of the space program that most of us never think about. We’ve seen numerous films about some of the first men to go to the moon, but much less so about the people who helped them get there. We knew so little, that we had no idea how many African-American women were part of the program.

Taraji P. Henson plays actual NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, who was part of the elite team that helped launch John Glenn on his primary orbit around our planet and, more important, bring him back home. As part of the footage shown, we were introduced to the three headstrong, intelligent and talented women at the heart of Ted Melfi’s historical drama: Johnson; division supervisor Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer); and aerospace engineer Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae). They are big personalities, who made huge contributions to our space program during the race our country held with Russian at the time of the Cold War.



Roots – May 30, 2016


History’s Roots miniseries will premiere on Memorial Day 2016, May 30, and will air over four consecutive nights, simulcast on fellow A+E Networks channels A&E and Lifetime.

The late May holiday has become History’s preferred launching pad for high-profile miniseries. Mega hit Hatfield & McCoys was first, History Logo 2debuting on Memorial Day 2012, followed by Texas Rising, which bowed on Memorial Day 2015.

For the air pattern of the four-night, eight-hour Roots, History is sticking to the model used for the six-hour Hatfield & McCoys, which aired on three consecutive nights. With the eight-hour Texas Rising, History tried a different approach — a two-night launch followed by a two-hour episode airing each the following two Mondays. The Roots release pattern also mirrors that of the iconic original miniseries, which ABC aired on eight consecutive nights in 1977.

The Hilarious Way Jaws Came Up With Its Most Famous Line – CINEMABLEND

Steven Spielberg’s 1975 thriller Jaws is the first Hollywood blockbuster, and its writer has now revealed the hilarious way the cast came up with its most iconic line.

Steven Spielberg’s 1975 thriller Jaws is widely credited as the first modern blockbuster, and it also made an entire generation pause and think, “You know what, on second thought maybe I don’t want to go swimming right now.” As beloved and influential as the movie is, it’s seeped its way into a permanent position in popular culture, and one of the biggest instances of this is the phrase, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.” The line is funny enough on its own, but the way it came to be may be even more hilarious.

One of the most quotable lines in movie history, it happened by accident. Writer Carl Gottlieb recently talked with The Hollywood Reporter, and revealed how the line came to be. Filmed largely on the water, the equipment for Jaws was all housed on a barge (nicknamed the USS Garage Sale), which, thanks to stingy producers, only had a single support boat to help keep it steady, a task the small craft was not up to. The fact that they needed a bigger boat became an in-joke on the set. Gottlieb said:

[David] Zanik and [Richard] Brown were very stingy producers so everyone kept telling them ‘You’re gonna need a bigger boat.’ It became a catchphrase for anytime anything went wrong—if lunch was late or the swells were rocking the camera, someone would say ‘You’re gonna need a bigger boat.’

In Jaws, Roy Scheider’s Sheriff Brody utters the line after getting his first good, up close and personal look at the shark he, Richard Dreyfuss, and Robert Shaw are hunting on the high seas off of New England. It wasn’t the only time he uttered the line during filming, as the actor threw it in here and there as he ad-libbed at various stages in the production. It was this particular moment, however, that made it into the finished product, and with good reason. When the stunned Brody backs into the cabin and tells Shaw’s Quint, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat,” shocked expression on his face, cigarette clamped between his lips, it’s such a droll, human, perfect reaction that it had to be that shot.

If it’s been a while since you’ve watched Jaws, you should fix that ASAP, but if you don’t have time to watch it all right now, here’s the moment in question if you care to relive it.
