We've naturally focused on the main character, Sheriff Cal Wayne (Bobby Darin), and his deputy, Ward Kent (Don Galloway). Why naturally? Because I love Bobby Darin and Mounty Swiss loves Don Galloway, of course.
And it involves Cal's childhood sweetheart, Amy (Emily Banks) as well. I don't want to say too much more because if you haven't seen the movie and now want to, I don't want to spoil it for you.
If you've never seen Gunfight in Abilene, I highly recommend it! You can buy it on DVD at long last, and it's a really good lesser-known western. Clean (one swear word) and dramatic and, well, I love it. If you haven't seen it but want to read my story, you can read my synopsis of the movie here.
Basically, I wrote all the Cal scenes in our story, and Mounty Swiss wrote all the Ward scenes. Because English is not her first language (or even her second), I did kind of Americanized her scenes a little so they would all mesh nicely. But I think the majority of the plot came from her ideas. We made a great writing team, and I'm so happy we created this story together! I hope you like it :-) Again, you can read it here -- it's broken into chapters, so don't get to the bottom of the page and wonder why it's so short, hee.
YAAAYYY and I can't wait to read it!!!!!! :) (But oh my, the movie looks really good and interesting, too.......maybe I'll need to see that first since you mentioned it. ;P)ReplyDelete
And also, I have been on here since you changed it (only I don't think I've commented---apologies.....apologies....), but I LOVE your new header!! And so excited to see Christian Imagination up on your current reading list! ;)
If you watched this, I would be precisely like you waiting to find out how I liked N&S. It's very dear to me, though it's not the best western ever. But I love it dearly. In fact, I have two prints from it decorating my living room. It's Bobby Darin. It's a western. What more can I say?Delete
I can say that if you do want to watch it, don't read the story first if you're anti-spoilage! The story is full of movie-spoilers.
And thanks! I like it too. I changed it when DKoren and I decided we were going to do the Middle Earth meme, in anticipation :-D
And yup, I'm deep in the throes of the first essay of "The Christian Imagination." Quite nifty!
I feel I must see this Bobby Darin and hear more of his character within this tale... However, though I don't really (and I am almost embarrassed to admit this :)) mind spoilers, to be a good girl, I will wait to read this until I can watch the film!
I don't generally mind spoilers either! Unless it's something I deeply care about. Then I avoid them assiduously. But otherwise, they don't bug me.Delete
(I feel you must see this movie too. Discussing this with your sister in an email...)
