This film was directed with and features a mood of restraint.

Question:
Elllemeno, where exactly is this pic?  I only see one near his desk... now I'm curious.


You mean the dark-haired movie star?  It's in the short story.  Some people have said they can see it in the film, but I can't.  What I've wondered is whether it's a man or woman.

Ennis is supposed to be on a roundup over "near the Tetons" when Alma, Jr. plans to marry.   :D

Oh, I see it in the story now.  The only pic I see in the movie is a rodeo scene by his desk....! How sad that little room is....?

In America sex is an obsession.  In other parts of the world it is a fact.

Monroe's answer when Ennis doesn't know what condiments are: "Uh, ketchup." :)

V is vast

One of my favorite lines from the story:

Like vast clouds of steam from thermal springs in winter the years of things unsaid  and now unsayable -- admissions, declarations, shames, guilts, fears -- rose around  them.

To PirateBride: Imagine going from a fine man who says "hunh" to one who merely says "uh."

To Ellemeno:  In this case I'd take "hunh" over "uh" wouldn't you?   :)

Jack describes himself as "wavin' to the girls in the stands!" when he's pretending to be a bull rider.  :D

X in Roman numerals is ten, our rating for BBM!  I used this in our last version and it was nominated for a "Willy" and I was so proud!   :)
