The Big Country (1958). A New Englander arrives in the Old West, where he becomes embroiled in a feud between two families over a valuable patch of land.

Westerns aren’t really my thing, but this is certainly one of the more compelling ones. The cast does a terrific job of portraying two families on the brink, and the narrative builds the tension effectively. If you enjoy a western, this is one to watch. 7.5/10.

Mertensia paniculata “Tall Bluebells” Boraginaceae

These bluebells have distinctly bell-shaped corollas unlike many other species in our area. To be precise, their corolla “bells” are gently and roundly flared and are approximately 1.5 times longer than the “tube” section of the flower. They are also somewhat taller than other species in our area and are commonly found among other waist-high, meadow wildflowers.

Tributes would be incomplete without some mention of Robert’s role as Churchill, which he took up many many times, not only on-screen, but also on-stage and in radio and audiobooks dramatizations and is actually the actor to have played the leader the most times.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to a great actor who played the perfect Churchill ✌🏼
