Blackwell North Amer
Tall in the Saddle salutes the best-loved of American film genres, the Western, with over 350 great lines culled from nearly 150 classic movies. The spirit of the West in all its grit and glory - a rugged world of lawmen, outlaws, homestead wives, floozies, and hired guns - is expertly captured in this chronicle of cinematic life on the frontier.
Looking for a cool comeback to a tough character? You ain't gettin' no older than tomorrow (Slim Pickens to Marlon Brando in One-Eyed Jacks). Trying to get out of an unhappy relationship? I got places to go and country to put behind me (John Wayne in Angel and the Badman). Fed up with the office hussy? I'd like to make a dress for her. Half tar, half feathers! (Una Merkel about Marlene Dietrich in Destry Rides Again). Need a new job? Cowboys aren't very bright. They're always broke and generally they're drunk (Kirk Douglas in The Last Sunset).
Dramatic stills of memorable moments, vintage advertisements, and flamboyant posters accompany these words to live by.

& Taylor
