This was homework watching due to the upcoming release of the remake, but I was happy to find it was enjoyable homework. I enjoyed Brynner & McQueen’s chemistry and the gradual change of both the townspeople and the hired guns was a pleasure to watch. It’s rare to find a movie this old that kept me interested for the entire run time* but this was one!

*I often am bored during older movies, so much so that I recalibrate my expectations regarding pacing for films made prior to 1980.
