31st March 2015: Tony Light - Laat Me Gaan

Language – Dutch

Translation – Let Me Go

I love this tune! OK, yes, it bears more than a passing resemblance to ‘Needles and Pins’ by The Searchers at the beginning, but it develops into something more, which is most enjoyable (especially the piano section).   107 more words

Quick Daily Review #37: The Searchers (1956)

The Searchers (1956)

Director: John Ford

John Wayne always played John Wayne. That’s the criticism leveled against him by most film historians. In the Searchers however, he is not the cozy patriarchal hero he portrayed most of his career, but a racist, obsessed, hate filled force of nature. 425 more words
