Winchester '73

Bennilover encouraged me to put up an entry for the "Smile on Saturday" theme this week, which is "portray a movie". She suggested a movie with a "gun" theme, knowing I collect firearms as another hobby (in addition to photography).


The first movie that came to mind was an old American western, "Winchester '73", that came out out in 1950. The movie is black and white, and starred Jimmy Stewart and a few other famous actors (Rock Hudson and Tony Curtis among them). But the true star of the show was a Winchester Model 1873, lever-action rifle. The plot involved Stewart's character winning it in a competition, and then the adventure that ensued after the rifle was stolen.
