    For me absolutely positively Big Country is in my top ten. For a lot of reasons. Between learning that the rRfleman can be a bad guy, and you can still be hot and not a blonde, the best lesson I ever learned was in the soliloquy when he stops the dance.

    It's just the best.

    Major Henry Terrill: What do you want Hannassey?


    Rufus Hannassey: Just payin' back the call that you and your men did to my boys this mornin'... sorry I wasn't there to give you the proper welcome. I got me something to say that's about thirty years overdue.

    This is a mighty fine house, Major Terrill, a gentleman's house. Those are mighty fine clothes your wearin'. Well, maybe you got some of these folks fooled, but you ain't got me fooled, not by a damn sight!

    The Hannassey's know and admire a real gentleman when they seen one, and they recgonize the smell of a high tone skunk when they smell one.

    Now, I'm not here tonight complaining about twenty-three of your brave men, beating three of my boys until they couldn't stand. Maybe they had it coming anyway - they're full grown and can take their lickin's.

    I'm also not here complaining that you're trying to buy the Big Muddy, to keep my cows from water.

    It's interesting to see the daughter of a genuine gentleman like Glenn Maragon under this roof!

    I'll tell you why I'm here, Major Terrill. The next time you come a busting and blazing into my place scaring the kids and the women folks, when you invade my home, like you was the law or God Almighty... then I say to you, I've seen every kind of critter God ever made, and I ain't never seen a more meaner, lower, pitiful, yellow, stinking hyprocrite than you!

    Now you can swallow up a lot of folks and make them like it, but you ain't swallowing me,

    I'm stuck in your crawl, Major Terrill, and you can't spit me out! You hear me now! You've rode into my place and beat my men for the last time and I give ya warning, you step foot in Blanco Canyon once more and this country goin' to run red with blood until there ain't one of us left!

    Now I don't hold mine so precious, so if you want to start, here, start now!


    I love it!!!!:eusa_angel:

    AND THEN it gets even better

    He goes to walk out the door and challenges him to shoot him in the back.

    And you have to remember this is the same man that sang Frosty the Snowman.:eusa_angel:

    The Bad Seed.

    It made me realize where Republicans come from.

    Mickey One.

    Can't honestly say I filly appreciated the plot or Mickey's character, really when I first watched this film at 14 or so, but something about the predictament he was in resonated with me for years after.

    The soundtrack blew me away, that I am certain.

    Here's the trailer.
