    Just a heads-up that this gritty Japan-set thriller is supposed to be shown in it's Cinemascope ratio on AMC (American Movie Classics) tonight (Wednesday, 9/26) at 10:15 PM (Eastern), and again at 4:15 AM (Eastern). It was directed by the great Samuel Fuller (THE BIG RED ONE, SHOCK CORRIDOR, THE NAKED KISS, PICKUP ON SOUTH STREET, STEEL HELMET, etc) on location in Japan, and stars Robert Stack & Robert Ryan.
    I've never seen it myself, but have been wanting to for several years, and have heard good things about it.

    Sounds good - I'll have to catch that late showing...
    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.
    -- Charles Frazier, Cold Mountain
