Godfrey - The Ox-Bow Incident (1943) - At one time Hollywood churned out Westerns like popcorn, and there were plenty of them on television, too.  They were cheap to make and required little imagination.  I first saw The Ox-bow Incident on television, with Henry Fonda introducing it as a different kind of Western.  Is it ever.  The good guys turn out to be the bad guys, because they let their emotions and lust for blood get the better of them.  The bad guys are really good guys who simply don't have the right paperwork.  And the whole incident started with a bit of fake news.  

   This is a movie that shows the ugliness of people, and yet notice that, except for a few punches, none of the violence is actually shown.  The hero, Henry Fonda, accomplishes nothing, and there are so many questions left unanswered.

   And I must mention Harry Morgan:  what a versatile and I think under appreciated actor.

   This is truly a great movie, one I have seen over and over, and it makes me uncomfortable each time.

Stephen - The Ox-Bow Incident (1943) - I read the Waler Van Tilburg Clark Novel many many years ago.  It was a special book and this is a special film.
