THE REBEL (1959)

This Nick Adams vehicle was a favorite of mine in first run, when I was too young to consider its deeper implications.

Johnny Yuma ran away to war when he was “too young to know what a cause was.” Meant to excuse his fIghtings for the “rebels”, I suppose. A hundred years later the Confederacy was still being romanticized.

The first episode is well written, and portrays the lead as a troubled young man, almost an intellectual.

At least I wasn’t offended, as I was by the first episode of YANCY DERRINGER.

The second episode, on the other hand.....

Found this “review” on the IMDb. Pretty much sums it up:

10 | One of the best series there was

This is one of the best series that was made. The Rebel was a term given to the South and if anyone studied their untainted history they would see that they were not Rebels but good people. One person wrote derogatory comments which many liked. Jonny Yuma was a man and he went about doing good and seeking justice unlike the northern people. It shows a contrast which exists to this day about greed and helping others, The South was better at helping others while the northerners were greedy. That is what the civil war was about. The Northern greed as they needed the south's wealth. the North took it by force and labeled the ones who wished to leave the union as rebels. It is a great story of how the south stood for people and would help those in need.

MAN WITH A CAMERA (1958)

Charles Bronson vehicle this time, one I’ve known until now only as a title. 1950s TV film noir. Suitably grim and gritty.

First episode guest stars Tom Laughlin, looking so much like a young John McCain I had to double check!

Bronson drives a station wagon—with a phone! And, oh! those old cameras!

Just finished SCHITT$ CREEK. A truly great show. I think this last
season was the best. And that closing shot was perfect.

I don't want to oversell it, but IT'S THE GREATEST SERIES IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE.

Well. It's pretty damn good. Very Old Time Marvel, with lots of "Easter Eggs" for fans of comics and sci-fi.

Keep watching!!

LOVECRAFT COUNTRY - Just when I think this series has revealed all its cards,
it gets deeper and more interesting.

Each episode uses music and spoken word in such a wonderful way. We hear
modern songs mixed in with period appropriate music, and the spoken word
clips are so impactful - it's such a great technique.
