Nick Ray’s sensational 1954 Tru-Color western fandango, JOHNNY
GUITAR!! Is it a lesbian manifesto? A bitter condemnation of the
McCarthy hearings? A blueprint for Freudian psychology?

Up first is Nick Ray’s sensational 1954 Tru-Color western fandango, JOHNNY GUITAR!! Is it a lesbian manifesto? A bitter condemnation of the McCarthy hearings? A blueprint for Freudian psychology? Just what is it??

(Wasn't there a poll taken around here that refuted that over-statement?) Anyway, just ask anyone who was at the Roxie last night and they'll most likely tell you it's the greatest movie ever made. Period! But that's the Roxie crowd for ya!

I’ve seen JOHNNY G. on other big screens here in San Francisco and the results can be a little dispiriting with lots of back-talking to the screen and unwanted running commentaries. But the crowd at the Roxie on Sunday could not have been more in tune with the film on the screen, stunned into silence for most of its duration then swept up in a wave of spontaneous applause and cheering at the end.
Red sed: David Steinberg said he liked GLEN OR GLENDA better than Tim Burton's ED WOOD!
