Welcome To Hard Times

 Just announced from the the Warner MOD program is  Burt Kennedy's 1967 western Welcome to Hard Times. Pretty much a bomb when first released , this movie definitely deserves a second look. A very grim/downbeat story plus a wonderful, truly evil performance by the great Aldo Ray (known in the movie as only "The Man from Bodie"). MIA on home video and rarely shown on TV , this is a very welcome release.  Along with the above mentioned Aldo Ray you also get Henry Fonda and check out this cast - Warren Oates, John Anderson, Royal Dano, Edgar Buchanan, Denver Pyle, Paul Fix, Elisha Cook Jr., Keenan Wynn and Lon Chaney, Jr.
