Characters, Quotes & Scenes / Jack and Ennis description in the story
« Last post by jjeff on May 20, 2021, 11:55 AM »
I've read the story a few times. It is quite different from the movie. I can't remember the exact details, but Jack had a thick butt with buck teeth and a concave chest and Ennis was thin and wiry. Or maybe Ennis had the concave chest. Later on, Ennis had a growth on his eyelid. Neither one was very appealing. In fact, if you picked a couple of cowboys at random, they would certainly be way more attractive. Annie Proulx always revels in life's less savory aspects and often uses some literary license. She likes to inject a lot of ugliness and stupidity into the characters in her stories. I don't know if she is making a statement about Wyoming or life's underlying sordidness. Anyway, I have often wondered why the movie features Hollywood's biggest studs to play a couple of mostly unattractive characters.

This is my first post.

You're right, it is a lovely edition. ANd it seems that some of the bonuses are new (to me at least)

I think it's the nicest Blu-ray edition so far, here's a video showing it:

Still a new release in South Korea:

Released 3 January 2020. No new extras, though the 36 pages booklet seems interesting.
This is a Korean release on its own, no American / European counterpart.

For some reason the picture doesn't seem to show; you can get the details

Not really

BTW, the only "Jack I swear" doesn't mean what you guys pretend to believe.

Stop making up stories to pretend that means what you want to.

All that was just Ennis' imagination

Jack wasn't murdered
So, I've seen the movie and read the short novel in a day. The character's from the movie to the novel are different- as Jack has curly hair, has buckteeth, thick in the thighs and butt whereas Ennis is shaggy looking, Roman nose, narrow face, muscular with a bit of a caved in chest, etc... but, I'm actually wondering your thoughts on their hair colour and simple things like that?

I'm trying to draw them both but I don't know if I should just take the colour scheme of the country boys we know and love in the film or assume one is blonde, other brunette, etc. So let me know your thoughts. This also includes eye colours and whatever else.

hello and  #$#

it's nice to see that BBM still has impact on people...!

if you look around the forum, we have been discussing for so many years, and maybe some of your questions will find answer!

but yes, i am with you.
all of ennis' behavior shows that he was afraid.
and especially he was afraid of himself, his reaction to jack, his feelings towards a man. all this fighting and the need to hit people... afraid that he might be what his father supposed him to be....

enjoy your stay here with us!  #$#
Characters, Quotes & Scenes / Ennis Being Scared

Is there anyone out there who feels as I do? Ennis would have done any and everything with and for Jack if he wasn't scared. By scared I mean, what his father planted in his head when he was a kid, and I also wonder if his father thought Ennis might be gay. I can not fathom why a father would show his children a dead corpse and say it happened because of two men running a ranch.
