Here is Andy’s hand-tooled leather director’s chair from the set of the TV series Wild Bill Hickok on which he played Wild Bill’s sidekick Jingles.

It’s hard to take a dull picture in Yosemite—though my shot of the famous granite Half Dome poses no threat to Ansel Adams.

I know, I know: this sounds like TV-movie fodder. But Conviction isn’t a formulaic feel-good saga. It is based on a true story that takes many unexpected turns, and I found it quite moving. Hilary Swank plays a working-class Massachusetts woman in the 1980s who vows to go back to school and earn a law degree so she can help her innocent brother beat a murder rap that’s put him in prison for life. Sam Rockwell is the brother, a lifelong hellraiser who can’t believe his sister has that kind of devotion—

Following Warner Bros.’ great success with warnerarchive.com, and Universal’s licensing of vintage titles to Movies Unlimited and Turner Classic Movies, Sony has stepped up to the plate to launch its own vintage movie line on DVD, drawing on its vast library of Columbia Pictures.

The secret of this film’s success is that it isn’t just the saga of a famous, prize-winning horse; it’s also the story of his owner, a suburban housewife and mom who stepped into a man’s world and took charge of an animal she believed to be a champion. It documents a time in the late 1960s and early 70s, when social change was in the air, and women’s roles in society were changing, if slowly. Mike Rich’s screenplay captures the time quite well, as do all the visual details onscreen. Those qualities—plus an exceptionally good cast—lift this above the norm for sports movies and underdog tales.

I saw this film in the best possible way: I didn’t know what it was about before I attended an early screening. I found it to be a moving look at a teenage boy’s struggles with his splintered family in England during the 1960s. When I realized the protagonist was John Lennon, it made even more sense, as I remembered, in sketchy form, the story of his adolescence.
