    One of Glenn Ford’s Best Westerns, February 23, 2005

    This review is from: Jubal (DVD)

    Jubal is the kind of adult western that was rare even in the heyday of Western production in Hollywood. A great cast, strong writing, and beautiful scenery makes it that much more enjoyable.

    Jubal is a luckless drifter, played by Ford who is rescued from exposure and starvation by wealthy rancher Ernest Borgnine. Borgnine soons put Jubal to work as a ranch hand. Borgnine has a very young and beautiful wife, played by Valerie French. She takes a strong liking to Jubal, which not only complicates his relationship with Borgnine, but further strains his dealings with a jealous fellow ranch hand Pinky, played by Rod Steiger. Things go downhill from there.

    Add Felicia Farr playing her normal stalwart Western beauty and Charles Bronson as a friend of Jubal’s, and you have the making of a great film. It’s way past time that this was on DVD.

    Excellent mid-50s Adult Western with Glenn Ford, October 16, 2005

    THE STORY: An injured drifter, Glenn Ford as Jubal Troop, is rescued by ranch-owner Earnest Borgnine, who ultimately promotes him to foreman of his ranch. This stirs up the envy of ranch-hand Rod Steiger (“Pinky”) and the desire of Borgnine’s young sexpot/discontent wife Valerie French. The latter leads to even more hostility on Steiger’s part because he used to enjoy the adulterous attentions of French until Ford came along.

    Add to this mix a group of trespassing Mennonites (or perhaps Quakers) who have in their company Felicia Farr, a godly woman that attracts Ford’s romantic interests, and Charles Bronson, another drifter who befriends Ford.

    WHAT WORKS: For the first hour and ten minutes or so “Jubal” is captivating cinema of the highest order. Borgnine is simpleminded & naive but likable and full of mirth. Valerie French is fully clothed at all times, yet somehow oozes sexuality with every simple glance or word (proving that sexiness involves way more than merely showing skin). Rod Steiger is perfect as the villainous Southerner-turned-Westerner “Pinky.” Felicia Farr is an interesting addition to the story: her godly purity attracts Ford just as much as French’s adulterous tactics turn him off.

    As for the young Charles Bronson, how can you go wrong? And, lastly, Glenn Ford is perfect as the tragedy-laden drifter.

    A big bonus is that the film was shot on location with the mighty Grand Tetons as a backdrop for the entire story. These magnificent Wyoming mountains are nothing short of breathtaking!

    WHAT DOESN’T WORK: A little after the hour mark a major character buys the farm, resulting in the last half-hour tying up loose ends and somehow losing the yarn’s ultra-captivating charm. I’m not saying the ending is bad, not at all, just that it’s mediocre compared to the rest of the film. This is the only reason the flick rates 4-Stars instead of 5-Stars in my mind.

    Also, although the opening credits score is understandably dated, the rest of the film is not.

    CONCLUSION: Make no mistake, “Jubal” is a powerful psychological Western; there’s thankfully no Disney-like unrealistic vibe anywhere to be found. It expertly touches on issues of friendship, envy, jealousy, competition, lust, hate, love, and hope. In light of this, I’m genuinely surprised at how underrated “Jubal” is in the Western genre.

    Let me add that Jubal is a man of fascinatingly noble character: he amazingly resists the skilled sexual advances of the luscious Valerie French. Kinda reminds me of Joseph and Potiphar’s wife.

    “Jubal” is a MUST for every person’s Western film library.

Automakers in U.S. driving banks from buoyant new car market

NEW YORK (Frankfurt: HX6.F - news) /DETROIT, June 16 (Reuters) - U.S. banks looking to get in on a booming market for financing new-car sales have run into a formidable competitor: the auto manufacturers themselves. Financing arms of car companies, including Toyota Motor (Frankfurt: TOM.F - news) Corp, Honda Motor Co and Ford Motor Co (NYSE: F - news) , made half of all new U.S. car loans in the first quarter, up from 37 percent a year earlier and the largest percentage of the market in four years, according to credit data firm Experian (Other OTC: EXPGF - news) . US Bancorp (Frankfurt: UB5.F - news) , for example, for the first time ever decided to start financing used cars, an area of the market that the automakers' finance companies have little interest in. Wells sees this as a way to gain more of the used car loan business at GM (NYSE: GM - news) dealerships.
