TMT: Growing Up When You Don’t Know It

This is the next entry in a Theatre… a Movie… and a Time, a series that was begun here. I’d like to thank my film noir/western blogging colleague Colin of Riding the High Country once more for triggering this remembrance. If it wasn’t for his stellar review of a truly under appreciated film, this all could have gone by the wayside, I fear. From his article:

“Elegiac is a word that has been used more than a few times to describe westerns that began to appear in the 1960s and particularly in the 1970s. While many movies tagged with this term do have a certain sorrowful quality to them, I can’t help feeling that it’s been overused at times. On the other hand, there are occasions where this description is highly appropriate, Monte Walsh (1970) being one of them.”
