Gregory Peck at his best. Jennifer Jones at her best. Awsome, wholesome, gripping tale of the horrors of war, marriage and life.

Broken Arrow is a western Technicolor film released in 1950. It was directed by Delmer Daves and starred James Stewart as Tom Jeffords and Jeff Chandler as Cochise. The film is based on these historical figures but fictionalizes their story in dramatized form. It was nominated for three Academy Awards, and won a Golden Globe award for Best Film Promoting International Understanding. Film historians have said that the movie was one of the first major Westerns since the Second World War to portray the Indians sympathetically.
Description: By 1870, there has been 10 years of cruel war between settlers and Cochise’s Apaches. Ex-soldier Tom Jeffords saves the life of an Apache boy and starts to wonder if Indians are human, after all; soon, he determines to use this chance to make himself an ambassador. Against all odds, his solitary mission into Cochise’s stronghold opens a dialogue. Opportunely, the president sends General Howard with orders to conclude peace. But even with Jeffords’s luck, the deep grievance and hatred on both sides make tragic failure all too likely. [ IMDb ]
PLOT (Wikipedia): Tom Jeffords comes across a wounded, 14-year-old Apache boy dying from buckshot wounds in his back. Jeffords gives the boy water and heals his wounds. The boy’s tribesmen appear and are at first hostile but decide to let Jeffords go free. However, when a group of gold prospectors approaches, the Apache gag Jeffords and tie him to a tree. Helpless, he watches as they attack the prospectors and torture the survivors. The warriors then let him go but warn him not to enter Apache territory again.
When Jeffords returns to Tucson, he encounters a prospector who escaped the ambush. He corrects a man’s exaggerated account of the attack, but Ben Slade is incredulous and does not see why Jeffords did not kill the Apache boy. Instead, Jeffords learns the Apache language and customs and plans to go to Cochise’s stronghold on behalf of his friend, Milt, who is in charge of the mail service in Tucson. Jeffords enters the Apache stronghold and begins a parley with Cochise, who agrees to let the couriers through. Jeffords meets a young Apache girl, Sonseeahray, and falls in love.
A few of Cochise’s warriors attack an army wagon train and kill the survivors. The townsfolk nearly lynch Jeffords as a traitor before he is saved by General Oliver Otis Howard who recruits Jeffords to negotiate peace with Cochise. Howard, the “Christian General” condemns racism, saying that the Bible “says nothing about pigmentation of the skin”. Jeffords makes a peace treaty with Cochise, but a group led by Geronimo, oppose the treaty and leave the stronghold. When these renegades ambush a stagecoach, Jeffords rides off to seek help from Cochise and the stagecoach is saved.
Jeffords and Sonseeahray marry in an Apache ceremony and have several days of tranquility. Later, Ben Slade’s son spins a story to Jeffords and Cochise about two of his horses stolen by Cochise’s people. Cochise says that his people did not take them and doubts his story, as he knows the boy’s father is an Apache hater. They then decide to go along with the boy up the canyon but are ambushed by the boy’s father and a gang of men from Tucson. Jeffords is badly wounded and Sonseeahray is killed but Cochise kills most of the men, including Ben Slade. Cochise forbids Jeffords to retaliate, saying that the ambush was not done by the military and that Geronimo broke the peace no less than Slade and his men, and that peace must be maintained. Jeffords rides off with the belief that “the death of Sonseeahray had put a seal upon the peace, and from that day on wherever I went, in the cities, among the Apaches and in the mountains, I always remembered, my wife was with me”.

Free Western Movie: Decision at Sundown – Spaghetti Western – Bart Allison and sidekick Sam arrive in the town of Sundown on the wedding day of town boss Tate Kimbrough, whom Allison blames for his wife’s death years earlier.
Decision at Sundown (1957)
Director: Budd Boetticher
Writers: Charles Lang (screenplay) (as Charles Lang Jr.), Vernon L. Fluharty (from a story by)
Stars: Randolph Scott, John Carroll, Karen Steele
Release Date: 8 August 1958 (West Germany)
Also Known As: Décision à Sundown
Filming Locations: Agoura, California, USA
Bart Allison arrives in Sundown planning to kill Tate Kimbrough. Three years earlier he believed Kimbrough was responsible for the death of his wife. He finds Kimbrough and warns him he is going to kill him but gets pinned down in the livery stable with his friend Sam by Kimbrough’s stooge Sheriff and his men. When Sam is shot in the back after being told he could leave safely, some of the townsmen change sides and disarm the Sheriff’s men forcing him to face Allison alone. Taking care of the Sheriff, Allison injures his gun hand and must now face Kimbrough left-handed.
“Bart Allison meets up with best friend Sam to seek the man who killed his wife. After 3 years of searching for him, Bart is somehow clued into finding the killer in the Town of Sundown.
This story line has a few twists and turns but sort of predictable after you’ve been binge watching western movies all day. Randolph Scott, aka Bart Allison, plays the vengeance driven cowboy husband who rides into a town named Sundown. He is bent on killing the man who killed his wife.
Although the dialogue is more than expected, there is surprisingly very little gunfire compared to most westerns around this time. The ending is surprising to say the least. In my opinion, this was made to showcase certain actors and actresses acting abilities to further their careers. There were many who I recognized from movies made in later years.” Written by harold-sink on IMDb.com.
“Here is a Western that is far above the majority made in the 1950’s, and man there were quite a number, that has as much to do about character, motivation, morality, and other deep concerns, not found in a typical trip to the nineteenth century with cowboys and outlaws.
In fact, this is one of those that forsakes the usual focus on the landscape and moves the action to indoors because we are going inside the minds of all the characters and there is nothing open about their thought process, until they make a decision to see themselves as they really were, slaves in Sundown.
There are many players and they all have a part in the drama and sometimes it is amazing that so much could be done in less than 90 minutes. There is much sermonizing and this tale of revenge and soul searching is, nonetheless, another in the highly entertaining and thought provoking films in the Boetticher-Scott stable. Although it seems smaller in comparison to some of the others, it is just as big, and it is just as expansive, only this time it opens the mind and sheds sunlight on the soul.” Written by LeonLouisRicci on IMDb.com.

Bette Davis with Celeste Holm, Anne Baxter, Hugh Marlow, Gary Merrill, George Sanders, and Marilyn Monroe.
A rich, black farmer in 1940s Mississippi is accused of murdering a white man. Local teenagers and an elderly woman work to make sure that justice is served. This film is closely based on the novel written by William Faulkner.
Starring: David Brian, Claude Jarman Jr., and Juano Hernandez
A 1945 film starring Constance Bennett and Gracie Fields, both were coming to the end of their film careers. Tightly directed by Gregory Ratoff. Both Bennett and Fields, are trapped in Nazi paris, they go on to rescue shot down airmen, and help them reach the English Channel. The film was released some five months after VE day in October 1945.
The Movie is quite light weight but has a powerful ending. I feel Fields was a natural actress, and this film shows just that to great effect. Bennett is more of a glamour puss really, with slight moments of reality and grit.
Both stars had nothing in common and did not speak off set. Gracie had never liked film so this was her last one after 14 years
The film has is a curio and therefore is uploaded for educational and historical purposes The film is public domain too.
I have uploaded a good quality version of the film, which has nothing to do with the official Gracie Fields lot. The first version has now been deleted, so hopefully you can enjoy this much better upload? A quite entertaining film.

When American newspaperman and adventurer Henry M. Stanley comes back from the western Indian wars, his editor James Gordon Bennett sends him to Africa to find Dr. David Livingstone, the missing Scottish missionary. Stanley finds Livingstone (“Dr. Livingstone, I presume.”) blissfully doling out medicine and religion to the happy natives. His story is at first disbelieved. When Livingstone later dies, Stanley returns to continue the good doctor’s work (which, of course, never really happened).
