Jacqueline T Lynch

It's playing on TCM January 18th.

Jacqueline, you're the greatest. Thanks! I'll set the DVR as soon as possible. 'Course I probably shouldn't wait that long to post again :D Have you seen it before? Zinnemmann directed some of my favorite films noir, westerns, and war dramas so I'm anxious to see how he tells this story.

I have seen it before, some great performances and a very stage-like quality to the scenes. It was on not too long ago, I can't remember when, but I discovered it accidently while flipping channels and I remember wishing I had known it was going to be on so I could have recorded it. Too bad I didn't, I could have sent you a DVD.

Thanks, Jacqueline. I read on imdb that Fox Movie Channel also plays it from time to time. I'll keep the DVR ready. Every time I think of Zinnemann I think of those overhead and long shots juxtaposed with emotional CUs in High Noon (probably my fav western). If this is a stage adaptation he must work in a different style. Still anxious to see it. Perhaps when I finally do sit down with it we can do a double review of it or something.
