AtoZChallenge…M is for The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
I started the AtoZChallenge in 2016 with a generic plan of AtoZ, as I was new to the blogosphere and had so much to learn. I met many new friends and learned much about blogging. Very great experience. For the 2017 AtoZChallenge I thought I would step out of the box and do the challenge with a theme. I have a love of Hockey and our Chicago Blackhawks were headed for the playoffs again. The timing of that theme would be spot on. I grew my blog and continued learning about blogging and Hockey. So begins the 2018 AtoZChallenge and my theme this year is Quotes made famous by the movies. I hope you are enjoying this as much as I am enjoying writing and researching.
Happy Saturday AtoZChallenger’s…Today my movie is definitely one of the classics. I know I love watching it. A John Ford/John Wayne western and both of those names are synonymous with great westerns !!! Here we go, “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.”
“Tom Doniphon: Liberty Valance’s the toughest man south of the Picketwire – next to me.
“Ransom Stoddard: You’re not going to use the story, Mr. Scott?
Maxwell Scott: This is the west, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.
“Jason Tully: Nothing’s too good for the man who shot Liberty Valance.
I think this is my favorite scene in the whole movie, but you should go watch it. This is a movie with some very classic actors and it’s a great good guy/bad guy/good guy wins. I won’t give away the ending but that too is not what you would think…
My featured image for this blog post is a painting of a Cactus Rose, which plays a big part in the movie…The husband painted it and I’m quite sure this movie gave him the inspiration for it. Just another reason I love him. I’m not going to put up the link, but you can find it on the right sidebar, “Elan Creations.”
Have a great weekend and I hope the weather is better where you are than here…COLD/SNOW/RAIN & ICE/HIGH WIND WARNING and last but not least CLOUDY & NO SUN. Really is the warm weather ever going to get here.!!!!
