McCabe & Mrs. Miller
In the early 70s my only knowledge of film was through the parodies in Mad Magazine. I'm pretty sure that McCabe and Mrs. Miller were among those in 1971. Warren Beatty and Julie Christie were hot in Hollywood and this Western was hot stuff too. Beautifully shot, with a cast of characters that fit so many cliches of the genre, but Altman manages to put a little meat behind them. This is a good film. I'm glad I finally saw it.
