Made in 1965 by well-known director of Westerns, Andrew V McLagen, and that includes James Stewart, one of the biggest and hottest of movie stars from the Golden Era of the Hollywood Western, ‘Shenandoah’ is a film to stir the feelings, and a movie which ought to appeal even to those that have no fondness for this explicit movie style.
Now there seems to be no written in stone rule who can name themselves a film critic, there isn’t any tutorial course which all those film critics must undergo to earn the title. But there are characteristics which distinguish between a movie reviewer and someone who lessons themselves a movie critic and as there isn’t a set in stone rule that is just my remark.
I happily, had a mother who was really my life-assist then and now, along with buddies and other household memebers that supported me. (I know that that’s what contributes to my fearlessness and nearly lionesses like approach when it comes down to defending my very own kids) I suppose the rawness of the film is what is going to impact me the most.
But are you aware, the extra I bought into making an attempt to be a critic the much less satisfaction I would get from watching a film, finding fault with the minuscule and deriding unoriginal juvenile teen flicks for being stupid. Even when I did like a film I would usually find myself questioning to the point of distraction especially if my opinion was at odds with extra recognizable critics.
Sam is probably the most outstanding of the opposite characters in the film. He is a Confederate Officer who turns into engaged and married to Charlie’s daughter. Sam is performed by Doug McClure as a socially awkward and tongue-tied younger man, in love with Jennie, but respectfully nervous within the presence of her father. It’s truly a really achieved characterisation.
