Spent well over two hours viewing my new acquisition, the Special Collector's Edition of Hondo. Learned a lot of goodies about the making of the film, the social and technological impact of it, and heard lots of good interviews featuring Michael Pate, who played Vittorio, and Lee Aaker, who played the little boy in the film. Wonderful stuff. It's one of my favorite westerns for several reasons, and now there are more reasons to bury myself in this film.
After viewing the film and features, I went into the TV room where my husband was watching Alien: The Resurrection. When the last gruesome, disgusting and horribly written frame of that flick had faded from my brain, my neck started hurting. I think I got cultural whiplash! OUCH!
