The Quick and the Dead


The street is ours as Peter joins us once again to draw our guns on one of the wildest and most entertaining Westerns ever made, The Quick and the Dead from 1995. Listen as we chronicle the decline of the Western as a film genre in the late 1990s, marvel at director Sam Raimi's visual ingenuity in creating the movie's unique look, and praise producer and star Sharon Stone's foresight in casting then lesser-known actors such as Russell Crowe and Leonardo DiCaprio. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and phallic firearm discussions.

Our theme song is "Nostalgia TV" by Edward Jonathan Blakeley through Lynne Publishing.

Think you're quick enough? Do you think Westerns will make a return at the box office? Is 1995-era Russell Crowe dreamy or what? Leave a comment and keep the conversation going.
