I'm glad you got something from it. I first saw it in the 90s on the local multicultural channel, when I was avoiding homework, and it opened up a whole new world for me.

the gun-handling scene between Montgomery Clift and John Ireland in Red River (1948) convinced me that I need to watch that thing stat

I first encountered talk about that scene in the readings for my Westerns class some years ago; many movies have been sold to me as stunningly homoerotic, many of which I think are not so, so at first I dismissed it as critics making homoeroticism out of nothing - and then I saw it. It really is amazingly homoerotic. Also, a really lovely film. Also stars John Wayne and Walter Brennan, directed by Howard Hawks, a genuinely delightful film that I would consider among my all time favourites.
