Comment: 2 short films (1985 pics 1+2+4, 30 minutes, Huckleberry Fox, left with Christopher Kowanko) and (2003, other pics, 40 minutes, Jonathan Furr, right with Ben Allison). 2003 film aka “William Faulkner’s Two Soldiers” after his short story won an Oscar (for short film). But I don’t like this remake. Original film has more and better farm/family setting and I prefer acting of those actors (rating 6-7, remake rating 5-6). Huckleberry Fox also in light blue bibs and shirtless or with sleeveless shirt. Weird plot of the younger brother going to a recruiting station. There is a DVD of the 1985 version, but I don’t think that this was officially released yet on DVD (perhaps on VHS?).
