Review by Tres
When I told the founder of our movie blog that I was reviewing Carbine Williams for today’s post, I was not shocked by his reply: “What is Carbine Williams? Never heard of it.” I am sure many reading this have never heard of it either.
In comics there’s an era called “The Silver Age”. People can tell you comic number, story plot, writers, and artists of many of them, especially when it’s a first appearance of a superhero.
In comparison, “The Silver Age” of movies is often overlooked; except for those few cult classics that continue to have followings.
Carbine Williams is one of these “Silver Age” films that few know about that are not in their 70’s.
In 1950… Yes 5 0… the actor Jimmy Stewart heard the rumor that a biographical movie was being done about the inventor of the automatic rifle, M-1 Carbine. This rifle was carried by soldiers into WWII.
