Turning 101 this year, Kirk Douglas plays the charming drifter in Man Without a Star, a 1955 classic western. He arrives by train wagon at the farm of a rich and charming single lady, waists no time in smooching her around, becomes the head of the HR by throwing some strategic punches at the personnel around and looks to train his younger protégée into shooting from the hip. Complications arise when the neighbouring farmers demand to restrict access to the lands over the winter - for fear of no more food left for the cattle in the spring.
Sit back and enjoy the smirks of Kirk Douglas and let the film’s silly narrative carry you to sleep. There’s comfort and peace in the experience.
