    TCM comes through again. What a great list of movies! (Even though it's missing my personal fave: "Ulzana'a Raid")

    His centennial is tomorrow, November 2nd. Wow, that snuck up on me. I meant to do a blog entry on it and watch a bunch of his films first, but clean forgot. Thanks for the reminder.
    And, in reference to my comment from March 27, I see now that FLAME AND THE ARROW is there, but not VERA CRUZ or CRIMSON PIRATE. But at least TEN TALL MEN and SOUTH SEA WOMAN are there--from his "fun" period.

    My mistake: CRIMSON PIRATE is there.

    I there a reason that Bill Forsyth's wonderful "Local Hero" is not on the UCLA?Hammer agenda?

    They really need to show his ground-breaking Mexican Revolution western, Robert Aldrich's VERA CRUZ (1954), an influence on THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, MAJOR DUNDEE, THE PROFESSIONALS and THE WILD BUNCH.
    And the two films where Burt got to show off his acrobatic skills, THE FLAME AND THE ARROW (1950) and THE CRIMSON PIRATE (1952.)

    @Brian -- "Vera Cruz" and "The Crimson Pirate" are included in the series (click on the link above for the full ineup). But I'm not seeing "The Flame and the Arrow"...
