3 Things- Rio Bravo, "All Oppression Shall Cease," and George C Scott Glasses

by - Thursday, December 18, 2014

1. Rio Bravo on the National Film Registry- This time every year, they add 20 new films to the NFR list, which is now 600 films long. I then add them to my long "to watch" list which is around 800 films, with around 300 completed. This year, I was psyched that Rio Bravo made it because it is my absolute favorite John Wayne film (not to mention the amazingness of Walter Brennan as Stumpy). Yay NFR for putting it right in the canon where it belongs!

2. The third verse of Oh holy night- 
"Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name"

3. George C Scott in Hipster glasses- I watched The Hustler yesterday afternoon, and I mostly didn't care for it (he's a man with a special talent and flaws! A lady friend magically appears, gives him lots of sex, and becomes a pawn!), but I thought George C Scott gave a great performance (Patton was too much) and he looked great with some thick-rimmed mid-century glasses.
