The Indian Fighter

Kirk Douglas grits his teeth and goes full macho, wrasslin’ with that beautiful Sioux up in the high country — the Sioux miss in question being the Italian model Elsa Martinelli in her screen debut. Kirk can’t decide if he wants to stay with Elsa, or lead what must be the most shameful bunch of pioneer bigots ever to cross the plains. Walter Matthau and Diana Douglas are standouts in this vigorous action western directed by André de Toth.

Breakfast at Tiffany's: 50th Anniversary Blu-ray Review

One of the key attributes a film needs is the ability to remain timeless, and few films feel quite as timeless as Blake Edwards' classic, Breakfast at Tiffany's. The film was originally released 50 years ago, and to honor the anniversary, Paramount Pictures has brought Breakfast at Tiffany's into the high definition age in a nearly perfect package to compliment this nearly perfect film.

Despite her gorgeous appearance and put together demeanor, Holly comes across as quite haphazard in her decision making and money spending.
