Video Essays (two of them!) for 911(51). They Died With their Boots On (1941, Raoul Walsh) featuring Matt Zoller Seitz
Main entry on the film
These days I am using imeem as my preferred channel for video uploads – I find the image quality to be sharper than on YouTube. However I’ve been informed that imeem does not function properly for all browsers. So I am continuing to post these videos on YouTube. You can find the introductory video essay here and the sequence analysis video here.
Special thanks to Matt Zoller Seitz, film critic for the New York Times and host of the blog The House Next Door, for his expert commentary on this film.
