Star Guitar

When Johnny Comes Skipping Home… Skip the $120 show and rent the movie for $3. I am refering to the subversive 1954 camp classic known as "Johnny Guitar," which has been somehow made into a 'family entertainment' musical for Broadway. The film’s fantastic - it’s a very stylized, Freudian Western with a gay sensibility, i.e. the women are gunslingers and the men are the sex objects!. Nicholas Ray directs and Joan Crawford and Mercedes McCambridge sling the guns….
