Saw "Hannie" on tv some time back. Interesting concept. Some of the acting needed another take. Probably a good action movie for somebody not bothered if acting is not completely Oscar grade. In fact, I would highly recommend it for lively action and interesting actors if you are not ultra critical about acting per se. Any man who thinks Raquel Welch is cute must see the movie. And Robert Culp is always a good sight to see in any acting role.

There is a gun question. In one scene Hannie is seated at a table, maybe in a saloon. An adversary is harranguing her. The camera shows us that she is holding a pistol in her hand under the table. The gun, in my very fallible old man memory, is a 51 Navy Colt without a barrel. So it resembles one of the "pepper-pot" pistols of that era. In my memory, it is definitely a 51 Navy Colt, however. The gun problem is this...when a 51 Navy Colt has no barrel, there is nothing to retain the cylinder; when the trigger is pulled and the hammer drops upon the cylinder nipple, there is no restraint to the cylinder and it would immediately move forward without letting the hammer impart enough force onto the cap to detonate it.

Only a gun nut like me would quibble about it though.

Thanks for the info, The Man With No Aim (good moniker! ;D) . I'll see if I can check it out.  O0

This time last week it was birds in the backyard, today a rabbit wandered in!  :o

He/she wasn't too interested in the fresh lettuce leaf from the garden though. It much preferred chewing the grass.

Soooo cute!  :)  Did he stick around, SK?  ???

It hasn't deterred SK from watching it. :P

 ;D ;D

If they thought that was bad, it makes you wonder what people back then would think about violence in movies today:o

(Of course it's all relative though...)
