A Home in the Meadow

I decided to restrain myself from writing a full post today, what with the holidays and New Year's Eve and whatnot. But in memory of the death this week of both Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher (mother and daughter), here is Reynolds in a sequence from How the West Was Won (John Ford, George Marshall, Henry Hathaway 1962). It is not her best film by any means, but she is the best thing about it, and this song is beautiful.

  1. Wishing you a happy new year! Maybe we can try and schedule a quick beer in Örebro if you have the time?

    Thanks for the song, a melody I have always associated with Christmas.

  2. Is your 2016 top 10 list coming later this month? I'd also be curious if you made a list of the best older films you saw for the first time in 2016. (Not that I want to pressure you into anything.)

    1. No pressure. But no, I won't be doing any lists this year. I've seen too few new films and too many old films!
