Gunsmoke [Import]
4.0 out of 5 stars A solid Murphy outing, March 4 2002
When watching an Audie Murphy western, you have to overlook his baby face and small build and remember his service to his country. You know he was tough in real life, so that makes him more believable in his western outings.
Gunsmoke is a solid outing for Murphy. He moved well in a Western setting and he practiced quick drawing to the point where he could do it faster than his instructor. Therefore, no fancy editing was needed when he used his gun.

Murphy's facial expressions were great… Read more

The Trouble With Girls was a pleasant change of pace for Elvis, who had long grown weary of the typical formula flicks, regardless of how well they did at the box office.
The light comedy had a good story to it, and the 1927 setting was great. Elvis is the manager of the traveling Chautauqua, and he blends in well with the rest of the performers, highlighted by Vincent Price, Dabney Coleman and John Carradine.
It was nice to see the movie not centered totally around Elvis' singing, although his rendition of "Swing Down Sweet Chariot" was really motivating. "Clean up Your Own Back Yard" was a great song as well, especially when compared to some stinkers he had… Read more
