Saw #JohnnyGuitar. Campy rep, but there’s more. Some of this fruity dialogue is as good as Double Indemnity.

#JohnnyGuitar. Crazily cool acting flourishes, as in Sterling Hayden tossing that gun back & forth & back again!

#JohnnyGuitar plays a bit like Joan Crawford starring in a Western version of A Room of One’s Own!

#JohnnyGuitar. Maybe because women don’t usually even participate, but nowhere in film …

… is there anything like the final showdown between Joan Crawford & Mercedes McCambridge!
