    "Time just gets away from us."

    Probably my favorite Western. I'm sure that is partially because it was one of my firsts. I'm sure it also helps that I was the same age as "Mattie" when I first saw it.

    The dark humor, the performances, and the sense of place are all great, but what always stays with me about this film is the melancholy. Great movie.

    The poster is selling a different, much worse movie.
