SORT BY Relevancy
Being a fan of "Classic Westerns" by film makers like, the three "Johns" (...Huston, Ford, and Sturges) , Sam Peckinpah, or Howard Hawks, one can't forget about the western film contributions made overseas, in Europe; otherwise known as the "Spaghetti Western". This week we'll focus our attention on three such films; A Fist Full of Dollars, Once Upon A Time in the West, and The Good the Bad and the Ugly. These are the movies of famed Italian writer, and director, Sergio Leone.
I am truly blessed to be able to make a living doing what I love so very much to do.
I wrote my first story - it was a western - when I was five. It was really awful, as might be expected, but my mother kept that typed and spell-checked (my mother again) short story tucked away until the day she died.
Later I became a newspaper reporter, thinking that books are written by authors which I most assuredly was not. I kept trying to write though, eventually did it wrong enough to learn how to get it right. That first sale, a young adult novel published by Independence Press, was more than thirty years and a good many books ago and I have loved every day since.
Did I mention how very blessed I am? Believe it.

Success Tips. Yes this may be different than what you expect. We were to have Nick Vallelonga, director, (PT 2) producer, writer, actor, as guest today, and at last minute had to postpone show. So after I made a few announcements I went on to share some of my thoughts on how to be successful and happy as filmmakers or simply as people. You can implement these powerful practices for shaping your thinking, your feelings and behaviors to get in alignment and move your career forward, and to enjoy more in life.

TV Shows - Westerns I'm sure they have touched many of our lives, from the Gene Autry to the Barkleys from the Big Valley. Wholesome programs that came on every week from Warner Brothers, like Cheyenne, and Maverick. Glenn Strange & Amanda Blake at the saloon in Gunsmoke with Matt Dillon and Doc Adams and one of my favorite characters, Festus - Ken Curtis.... Shoot 'em up! Bang Bang!
SAMUEL J. WINCHESTER is an escaped convict, wanted by the law for murder, but once he was an officer and a gentleman.
Winchester was an 1831 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point NY. Graduating at the top of his class as an engineer, he worked for ten years building roads, bridges and fortifications.
He was engaged to marry, EMMALINE ADELMAN, the daughter of COL. AUBREY ADELMAN. She is the apple of her father’s eye and of Sam’s as well.
Sam thought he had it all.
Then in 1841 without warning he was placed under arrest and quickly convicted of the murder of a family on the raw frontier of the Republic of Texas. He was sent to a succession of prisons, the last being Castillo de San Marcos at St. Augustine, FL where conditions were brutal. Inmates were fed slop, whipped or beaten often. At night they were chained to the floor and given cotton pallets instead of beds.
Escape was thought to be impossible.
But Sam did manage to escape after ten years of confinement.
He took his chains with him, and carries them in his saddlebags. He will not rest until he has found those responsible for his fall from grace.
He intends to batter them with the length of chain, each and every one of them, however many there might be.
While a native New Englander, James J. Griffin developed an interest in the frontier west, particularly the Texas Rangers, at an early age. He grew to be an avid student and amateur historian of the Rangers, and a collector of Ranger artifacts and memorabilia. His collection is now part of the permanent collections and on display at the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum in Waco.
Jim's quest for authenticity in his writing has taken him to the famous old West towns of Pecos, Deadwood, Cheyenne, Tombstone, and numerous others. While Jim's stories are fiction, he strives to keep them as accurate as possible within the realm of fiction. To that end, his good friend, retired Texas Ranger Sergeant and Lecturer of Forensic Sciences at Baylor University, Jim Huggins, along with good friends Karl Rehn and Penny Riggs of KR Training in Manheim, Texas, help him with the technical and historic aspects of his books.
Jim is a lifelong and devoted horseman. His favorite breed is the American Paint Horse. He bought his first horse while a junior in college.
Jim is a graduate of Southern Connecticut State University. He divides his time between Keene, New Hampshire and Branford, Connecticut when not traveling out West.
Jim is a member of Western Writers of America and Western Fictioneers.
