Escape to Freedom(from yourself!!!)
- Marianne McDermott
This film is fabulous! William Holden, Eleanor Parker, John Forsythe(especially), William Campbell and William Demarest struggle to be really "free" from the "prison" within themselves!!!Even though this is a western(it reminds me of THE SEARCHERS) - John Ford's masterpiece of life, death and redemption!When I saw this film, today on the Encore channel, I was blown away by the story, direction and the actors!The last hour of this film was total nail - biting tension. Not to give away the ending! It truly takes courage to live by your principles and then also to change, for the better!!!Also, I never knew that John Sturges was the director - thought it might HAVE been John Ford or Howard Hawks!!!
Review of movie, Escape from Fort Bravo
- PM Gibson
This movie is vastly under-rated for the acting, story line and overall theme. William Holden is excellent in this movie, as are Eleanor Parker and the other lead acters. It's a simply, straight forward story, and that is how it is acted. there are a few flaws, but Lord bless the one who has none.
For sure one of the best western movies I have ever seen. Holden is outstanding. It does not get the recognition it deserves. I would love to have it on DVD but until then, I hope they play it more often on tv.
I love William Holden and he certainly does not disappoint me in this movie - There isn't another actor that is as believable as he is- I love this movie- have seen it many times in both black and white and color and even though I am a fan of black and white movies the color version makes the scenery and Eleanor's customes just beautiful. I would love for this to be availabe on DVD.
