1. At any time during the month, on your own blog post a scene from a book or film that matches the prompt, including a link back here in your post.
2. Leave a link to your post in the comments section on this post and at the end of the month I'll do another post with everyone's links. That's it!
Due to Legends of Western Cinema Week coming up soon, I thought it'd be fun to do a western-y themed prompt (which, unfortunately, also leaves us a multitude of delicious options ;P). The final decision ultimately came out to being:
A pivotal film scene at an old time western bar
(Note: This isn't a 'saloon scene' as such, but men talking and digging their elbows in at the bar. Make sense?)
My entry for this month is from The Westerner (1940) with Gary Cooper, Walter Brennan, and Doris Davenport. For some crazy reason, it seems to be very little known, which is a shame as it's excellent. It seems to be available to stream for free round the internet (as of posting, Amazon Prime has it and that's what I'd recommend for best resolution).
It's one I alllllmost skipped seeing and I'm so glad I didn't! The story depth, acting, dynamics, and character development of the main characters are unexpected and excellent. The ending's ultimately happy, but still makes me tear up. Anyhow, this scene (which comes much much before the ending) is always the first that pops to mind when I think of it. They're honestly both scamps at this point, but one is on the way to leaving his scamp-ish ways behind and you can already see the tension simmering.
(If you scroll way near the bottom here you can find the mini review I did for it last summer.)
Looking forward to seeing what y'all come up with! Have fun!
