Women's Prison (1955) - She Is Not A Criminal Doc Crane and superintendent Van Zandt (famously turbulent married couple Howard Duff and Ida Lupino) tangle over a new inmate (Jan Sterling as Helene Jensen), who gets scolded by Saunders (Mae Clarke) and supported by Brenda (Jan Sterling), on her first night inside, in Women’s Prison, 1955.
Women's Prison (1955) - Open, You're More Than Welcome Terrific momentum, Lewis Seiler directs the quasi-documentary open, with a pointed grievance in the narration, from the original screenplay by Jack DeWitt and Crane Wilbur, as deputy Green (Lorna Thayer) delivers nervous Helene (Phyllis Thaxter) and brassy recidivist Brenda (Jan Sterling), Frank Sully the turnkey, Mae Clarke as matron Saunders, in Women’s Prison, 1955.
Women's Prison (1955) - I'm Here For A Post-Graduate Course Traumatized Helene (Phyllis Thaxter) finally joins the population after two initial weeks in quarantine, meeting friend Brenda (Jan Sterling), her pal Mae (Cleo Moore), Adelle August as Grace and Vivian Marshall as sparky Dottie, in Women’s Prison, 1955, starring Ida Lupino.
Man In The Wilderness (1971) - Zach Fought Against Life John Huston as Captain Henry, leader of the hunting expedition, instructs Lowrie (Dennis Waterman), being left behind to monitor the presumed death of bear-attack victim Zach (Richard Harris, experiencing a flashback), along with the less patient Fogerty (Percy Herbert), in Man In The Wilderness, 1971, based on the same story asThe Revenant, 2015.
Man In The Wilderness (1971) - Sorrow Never Helped Anyone Precisely the scene made famous with Leonardo DiCaprio in Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu’s Academy Award-winner The Revenant, 2015, based roughly on the same uncorroborated story, of trapper Hugh Glass, Richard Harris in the lead role, attacked by a bear near the Upper Missouri, ca. 1820, in Man In The Wilderness, 1971.
Man In The Wilderness (1971) - I Should've Been There Finally regaining consciousness, left for dead by his hunting expedition companions along the Upper Missouri, Richard Harris as Zach Glass recalls his wife Grace (Prunella Ransome), and tries to improve his condition, in Man In The Wilderness, 1971, directed by Richard C. Sarafian.
Canadian Pacific (1949) - It Got Too Tame Railroad surveyor Tom (Randolph Scott) rides into the construction camp east of the Rockies, meeting Branagan, (Walter Sande), buddy Dynamite (J. Carrol Naish) and villain Cagle (Don Haggerty), the new lady doctor Edith Cabot (Jane Wyatt) intervening, early in Canadian Pacific, 1949.
Canadian Pacific (1949) - What Girls Have You Seen Lately? Odd mix of Alberta locations and soundstage, as railroad surveyor Tom (Randolph Scott) has left the construction camp to resume his other “project,” which turns out to be frisky CineColor Nancy Olson as Cecille, in producer Nat Holt and director Edwin L. Marin’s Canadian Pacific, 1949.
Canadian Pacific (1949) - That Man Will Find A Path After an elaborate narrated prologue, Robert Barrat as railroad exec Van Horne addresses the parliament in Ottawa, waxing about his surveyor Tom Andrews (Randolph Scott), who needs not speak, even when hunted by villains Victor Jory and Don Haggerty, early in Canadian Pacific, 1949.
Man Called Horse, A (1970) - Open, I'd Be Shooting Grouse Something like a disclaimer, or a tease, relating to what became a notorious scene, then an evocative credit sequence and the introduction of Richard Harris in the title role, a wayward English nobleman, Dub Taylor a sidekick, in director Elliott Silverstein’s A Man Called Horse, 1970.
Man Called Horse, A (1970) - You Horrible Old Hag! Spring has come, captured English Morgan (Richard Harris) doing better with his Sioux brethren, to the point that he propositions Running Deer (Corinna Tsopei) while picking flowers, gets counsel from fellow captive Batiste (Jean Gascon), then told off by Buffalo Cow Head (Judith Anderson), in A Man Called Horse, 1970.
Man Called Horse, A (1970) - Buffalo Cow Head Sioux chief Yellow Hand (Manu Tupou) returning from a lengthy raid, observes Buffalo Cow Head (Judith Anderson), grieving over her son who was killed along the way, and offers her the captured Engilshman (Richard Harris), tribe members feuding all the while, in A Man Called Horse, 1970.
