I was sitting on the couch half asleep this evening when a tv show called the AFI top ten (or something like that) came on. I thought it had something to do with Americas funniest home videos (which aren’t, by the way) but it didn’t. AFI is the American Film Institute and this show was their opinion of the top movies of all time. I didn’t disagree with somne of them but the people in charge decided that High Noon was only the second greatest western. Something called “The Searchers” with John Wayne was number one.
Now I’m a big fan of the Duke, but no way was his movie (which I never heard of) better.
I gave up on AFI after that.
