Our thanks to nikkie for bringing us another review of the new Appaloosa traier with VERY good things to say.

And if there is anybody out there who neglected to see "A History of Violence" let me just say, these two were destined to play alongside each other.

In the 1950's Hollywood was producing around forty westerns per year, that number fell to twenty during the 60's, around ten per year in the 1970's through 90's, and in the new millennium, we are lucky to get five westerns each year. But when those westerns are of the caliber of 2007's "3:10 to Yuma", "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford", and "No Country for Old Men", quality over quantity is clearly the appropriate adage.

Since 2008 has already graced us with South Korea's "The Good, The Bad, and The Weird", I was surprised to see how amazing today's trailer for "Appaloosa" looks. The film is co-written, directed, and co-starred in by Ed Harris who shares the screen with Viggo Mortensen. And if there is anybody out there who neglected to see "A History of Violence" let me just say, these two were destined to play alongside each other. "Appaloosa" is based on a 2005 Robert B. Parker novel of the same name and also stars Renee Zellweger and Jeremy Irons.

IMDB lists the plot as "Two friends hired to police a small town that is suffering under the rule of a rancher find their job complicated by the arrival of a young widow". Check out the trailer below or go to MSN to see this trailer in HD. Expect an October release date for "Appaloosa".

Signed SKOVBOs are Going Fast - Don't Miss Out!

Categories: Friends on Board

NEWS UPDATE: 1, 2, 3 ... Hi Baby! Fundraiser: SKOVBO Auction #3

Here is your third chance to bid on a fabulous Viggo collectible (that you KNOW you want) and help us towards our goal of getting that much needed van for 1, 2, 3 ... Hi Baby! at Pine Ridge, SD.

How can you pass up this one of a kind Viggo personalized item? Viggo has signed and donated this copy of SKOVBO to our efforts in support of the 1, 2, 3 ... Hi Baby! Wheels Fundraiser. We at Viggo-Works couldn't be more grateful for his generosity and caring.

First Edition Copy of Viggo Mortensen's SKOVBO - Signed and Personalized by Viggo in Support of 1, 2, 3 ... Hi Baby!

Click on images to enlarge.

1,2,3 ... Hi Baby! is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to reducing the incidence of infant mortality in the Indian people of the Pine Ridge Reservation by providing services and education regarding healthy lifestyles, healthy pregnancies, healthy children and families, and positive parenting to the entire family.

The infant mortality rate for the Pine Ridge Reservation is among the highest in the United States. Prenatal care is an essential aid in the prevention of infant mortality yet less than fifty percent of women who deliver at Pine Ridge hospital receive the World Health Organization recommended minimum of four prenatal visits. Other challenges Pine Ridge residents are faced with daily are: approximately an 80% unemployment rate, severe housing shortage, transportation shortage, about a 65% high school drop out rate, and prevalent health problems (heart disease and diabetes) with limited access to medical care and treatment.

The Need is Desperate! The Time is NOW!

The coordinators of 1,2,3 ... Hi Baby! have asked us to assist in raising enough money for them to replace their unreliable vehicle which is being used to transport the moms and babies to their medical appointments, pick up and deliver any supplies the clients of 1,2,3 ... Hi Baby! may need, such as clothing, baby food, diapers, etc. The reservation is approximately 2 million acres and their clients are spread out over this vast area. Although 1,2,3 ... Hi Baby! has been able to handle general maintenance and minor repairs on the vehicle, the extensive miles driven on the reservation's poorly maintained roads, and wear and tear have taken their toll, rendering it an unreliable means of transportation. Without a reliable means of transportation, the families serviced by the 1,2,3 ... Hi Baby! program may have to do without.

Viggo-Works wholeheartedly supports this effort and we are committed to reaching the goal of $50,000 by October 20, 2008.

Our MEGA thanks to Viggo for his support of this effort!

Tax deductible donations can also be made through PayPal by visiting Friends On Board and clicking on the Wheels Project Donate button on the sidebar.
