    I thought this was a great western, but the thing that struck me the most was how the uses of certain words has changed.

    "Harlot" certainly doesn't pack any emotional punch in the 21st century, but there are two dramatic music swells around the use of it. The insinuation that occurs before the use of the word was, I would say, much more powerful, as far as this modern viewer is concerned.

    The most significant, however, was the use of "glory hole." Call me childish, but it just doesn't get funnier than a mob of old-fashioned western-type characters running and cheering "glory hole!"

    It's difficult for me to see Karl Malden as a bad guy. I've always thought of him as the honest, down-to-earth, detective or friend. Gary Cooper delivered his usual monotoned lines looking like the lost little boy he always looked like. Still, I enjoyed the movie. 7 years 5 months ago
