But it always amuses me when two top professional critics lock horns over a picture — in. fact, offer sucli widely divergent views as to thoroughly confuse a prospective customer. Such a picture is Cheyenne Autumn, *not yet in general release and featuring such woll known actors as Richard Widmark, Carroll Baker and .Tames Stewart. It is directed by the famous John Ford, feosley Crowther, well known critic for the ^Kew York "fimes, puts this picture oh his "next best" Ust with these -remarks, "Several other films came very close to winning places in the top 10 and rate -an honorable mention." That is wliere -he places Ohey- enne Autumn, Now Usten^ to what Brendan •Gill, movie 'critic for the -New Yorker -magazine, has to say about Ifc "Jlohn Ford is a sacred fig uf$ $o .the more dedicated mo- , yie ^tans, ,and I suppose I risk being smothered to death under {anonymous .postcards, all bearing messages highly inappropriate to the .holiday ; sea- so,n, when J say that his 'Cheyenne Autumn' is far and away ,the most boring picture of 19- W- '•"• . ..'..-" "Nota -single moment of its t\yOiand a half hours is sustained by an authentic breath of life; it's simply and ein^ . barrassingly a vast scrapbook of ^"Fprxl's earlie^ successes, and though we may turn the , many, pages of -the book with 'a feeling of piety for his past/greatness, nothing can. prevent '-us from getting the fidgets as we do so.

"The setting is Mr Ford's old ; favorite, Monument Valley,' 'which, if I ever 'see it with by own eyes, will seem as familiar as Times' Square, • and : the cast, which acts with a uhi^orni and, under the circumstances, merciful banality, boasts such names as Richard Wftlniark, Carrol Baker, Karl Maiden, Dolores Dei Rio, Edward G.

And just where does it put me, you ask? Well, it gives me a certain, confidence that no matter WHAT I say it has a certain authenticity. If the comments of the LEARNED are so much at loggerheads, why shouldn't the little, old critic of the Kossuth County Advance have his nickel's worth too. And that's where we came in.
