“Support Your Local Sheriff” (MGM, 1969)

James Garner stars as a clever and supremely laid-back gunslinger that wanders into a town that just hit a gold rush. By accident, he becomes the de facto lawman in this outrageous, irreverent and very funny farce co-starring Joan Hackett, Bruce Dern, Jack Elam and the iconic Walter Brennan as the comic foil. (Color, 113 minutes.)

“Desperado” (Columbia, 1995)

Who is the mysterious mariachi player that is hunting drug dealers with such style as to turn Antonio Banderas into one of world’s biggest heartthrobs? This bullet ballet was revolutionary when it came out for turning mid-90s independent film style into mass appeal. A non-stop whirlwind of action and romance that had audiences on the edge of their seats and swooning in the aisles.  Directed by Robert Rodriguez and the film costars Steve Buscemi, Quentin Tarantino, Danny Trejo and Selma Hayek as a woman so beautiful that she “literally” stops traffic.  (Color, 105 minutes.)
