"Big Country" was one of the better Westerns starring Gregory Peck, Burl Ives, Lee Majors, Charles Bickford, Chuck Connors, Carol Baker, Jean Simmons.

Backin the day when they didn't need to swear or have sex to make a good movie.

For sure- Burl Ives (old man Hennessy) got a little rambunctious, when he stormed the party. I think the word "Hell" was used. At the end he spat in Buck's face just before he shot him.

Rio Bravo with John Wayne was excellent, although I thought Walter Brennan as Stumpy was the best actor.

Lake George NY and the Adirondacks is a popular vacation site for people in the North East (America) and Canadians which is where the film is based. Fort William Henry.

Another good film and yeah Wayne wasn`t the best after he started the binge drinking.

Shawshank Redemption was very good, another good one was "Murphy's Romance" with James Garner and Sally Field.

I watched "Harvey" again fairly recently, good entertainment and clean humour and I don't believe there was a single "F" word.

An American movie that never got the acclaim it should have was: "Teahouse of the August Moon"
Probably Brando's best part.
