Northwest Passage vs Southwest Passage-two excellent Vintage Old West Western Movies

Time for a Movie? Are you needing an afternoon to take your troubles away? Kids went by wagon and horses and then cars to go see the Afternoon Movies at the Downtown Movie Theater. And they loved them. For some, The Legends were still alive to discuss the Great Expansion to make America a whole Nation from Coast to Coast. Heros and Villains. But these are two Movies to give you a great fun afternoon of entertaining action. Just sit back. Plug in some ear phones and watch these on your Cell Phone…enjoy!
