I never really thought about it before but I guess the heroes do shoot first. Great connection between Wayne and Hans Solo, the ultimate space cowboy. I love the format of this blog - this is the first geeky retrospective I've ever read that made my mouth water and my tummy rumble!

Hell yes, Han shot first!

A thoughtful essay, Karen, and you schooled me in cowboy lore.

Great fun having you a part of Super-Blog Team-Up. I don't think we had a stronger entry than this one here ... looking forward to the next one!


Your comparison of how movies, their respective filmmakers (who have integrity), and how they tend to interpret the actions of movie heroes are right on target! Unfortunately, in the case of George Lucas deciding to change the intent of Han Solo's actions (not shooting first), is likely the result of a director yielding to the pressures of political correctness.
