Red River: BFI Southbank, 8.30pm NFT3

The Howard Hawks season continues with a film described by Time Out's Geoff Andrew in an excellent review here as the "finest western of the 1940s." Later the pleasures of this great movie would be lovingly captured by director Peter Bogdanovich in The Last Picture Show and you can see that wonderful scene here via YouTube.

Here's Hawks himself talking about Red River. I will be attending the screening on Sunday at the BFI at 6.10pm and I have a very different type of film lined up for the blog tomorrow. Watch this space.
