The Good Brother, The Outlaw Brother, and their Mother
A mother's love. My dad lost his mother when he was about nine years old. My grandmother died from Scarlet Fever while my dad was a youngster, and I will never forget a story he told about her last day. He said that while his mom was lying in bed suffering from the fever, one day she called to him and asked if he would bring her a cold glass of water.
My dad was busy playing and told her that he was too busy to bring it right then, and she told him that it was all right, just keep on playing. She soon died, and as the years passed he said that her request for a glass of water haunted his memory many, many times. He would have given anything in the world for the chance to go back to that moment and get his mom a glass of cold water.
A mother's love. Sure, this is a movie about two tough brothers in the wild west, and the beginnings of the Pony Express, complete with gunfights, fist fights, and a story about the tough and wild west. But it is also a story about a mother's love. The Mother in this movie doesn't get top billing, but for my money she is the star of this adventure. She tried to teach her boys the difference between right and wrong, but one grew up to be an outlaw, fighting his brother, who was a rider for the new Pony Express.
This leads to that, and the bad brother is on trial to be hung, and the only witness who can identify him and seal his fate is his mother. His life is in her hands. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with lots of warm melted butter on it, and enjoy the show.
