The Duel At Silver Creek (1952)

I think I might get into Westerns again! Even in the fifties, these movies weren't bad. I was expecting a slower pace, but it held the suspense well. In fact, some scenes feel almost too sped-up.

It's a bit strange seeing a world so unlike the modern one, without any traces of technology, or even factory-made items. It sets the atmosphere, and though I reckon I'd miss common modernities like lights, or a bathtub, the old days had a certain charm to them. Everything was real. Life was lively, people were helpful, and everyone was involved, all as life should be lived, albeit maybe without some of the old stereotypes, and those out-of-place consolidations like Cry if it makes you feel better.

Though the dialog was mighty different back the day, it's still understandable, and without that strange style of speech the dusty towns of the wild old west wouldn't feel as authentic.

As for the movie? The action's good! There aren't any crappy special effects to distract either. Both gun smoke and explosions all look - and I expect are, real. There's plenty of intrigue, and though there's little surprise since none of the scheming is hidden from the viewer, it's an enthralling ride nevertheless. Simple, but satisfying. Good watch.
