Two of the three Howard Hawks/John Wayne western series - Rio Bravo and El Dorado - kept me company over the weekend. It's the same movie; the actors are interchangeable drill bits. I love arguing about whether Ricky Nelson or James Caan is the better side-kick. There is no doubt, however, that Walter Brennan's Stumpy and Angie Dickinson's Feathers steal the show.
There were more, so very many more. But the kid is leaving in the morning and there is laundry to be done and packing to be considered and I haven't even checked out the tv guide to see what other gems are awaiting me.
So much to do, so little time.
