I reviewed that one here: Seven Men from Now (1956).

Indeed. I figured it would be an old-timer to post the first correct answer.

It was your review from 2011 that caused me to put this movie in my Netflix queue. It finally arrived. I was reminded of my childhood when I was at the movies every weekend without fail. As a kid I remember ticket prices increasing from a dime to 15 cents then a quarter. With the small allowance I got this was a big deal. There was no western that came to town that I didn't see. Most were B-movies like this but that didn't matter, as a kid a movie was a movie.

It was interesting to see Don "Red" Barry who I remember from the Red Ryder series. They were aired in the early days of black and white TV as Saturday morning entertainment for kids. It was sad to learn he committed suicide in 1980.

The DVD extras also had a featurette that highlighted the life and career of the pretty Gail Russell whose life ended sadly at the age of 36.

Seven Men from Now was the first in a seven-film collaboration between Randolph Scott, Budd Boetticher, and producer Harry Joe Brown, with five of the films written by Burt Kennedy.

I've only seen a few movies with Liv Ullmann. I'll guess it's the period piece The Emigrants?

Correct!

We always hoped that James Garner would be available to play Pappy in a film version, just as he did (once? occasionally? ) in the original series.

We also wish it had been a better film.

I read that Garner viewed his role as the original Brett, older, with Mel Gibson as Brett Jr.

It is! But that one was already answered. I add the spoiler answer when the correct answer is given. I don't think we have any open challenges from the early pages.

And: your reply got dicked up in HTML somehow. Not your fault, I'm sure.

Anyway, blast from the past (no points for this one):

I'm going to feel very stupid when you reveal the answer to that one. I'm certain that I've seen it, but I just can't place it right now.

Great. Not only did I not guess the right movie but confused the late Carolyn Conwell with Liv Ullmann.
