No time stamps is a withdrawal.
1. This film is a transition Western, as discussed in class. Provide a few examples in the plot (you don’t have to provide each instance something happens, but one, such as “The sheriff acts like THIS in the movie, including in the first scene TIME STAMP). Also, provide elements that make up a classic Western and a modern Western.
