True Grit vs Wild, Wild West

January 10, 2011

For all you keeping score, here's how True Grit stacks up against the last two Westerns to top $100 million at the box office:

1. Dances With Wolves: $184,208,848 (release date 11/9/90)

2. Wild Wild West: $113,804,681 (release date 6/30/99)

3. True Grit: $110,430,000 (release date 12/22/10)

Meanwhile, here's a couple studies I did this weekend:

Mickey paraded a female prisoner (Beauty) up into the Sierra Madres, taunting the Apache Kid to come out of hiding. The ruse worked.

The Apache Kid had other enemies, including Curly, the San Carlos scout who was married to Beauty for a short time. Here they are ascending Black Mountain to do battle:'
