This movie also makes you appreciate Don Siegel as a director. The guy was never at the top of the heap with the all-time great directors, but he always seemed to make solid, entertaining movies in a straightforward style. The Shootist, Dirty Harry, Coogan's Bluff, Madigan, Invasion of the Body Snatchers . . . all good movies.
Can't disagree with any of that. Edcellent which is... uh, nobody cares... Let's not go back to those
I do love THE SHOOTIST
despite its many imperfections.
