The Old West returns with Goodnight for Justice on Hallmark

   Having a fondness for the Old West, it was great to see another western on the Hallmark Channel's schedule. Goodnight for Justice is an original movie that does justice to the old fashion western genre. It follows Judge John Goodnight who rides around dispensing "justice with a conscience" in the Old West.

   The character was created by star Luke Perry, who is also the executive producer of the film. Perry's friend from their 90210 days, Jason Priestley directed the production on location in Vancouver and other B.C. locations.

   At a Hallmark event Priestley told me, "The film was shot in British Columbia, where I'm from. It shot very quickly because of the shorthand of working with people I know. That's very beneficial when you have a short time frame."

   There is a shootout scene that Priestley admitted was a homage to the classic western High Noon. And he explained it was "one of the films that I watched to actually take a lot of the visual cues for this." Yep, if you're going to steal a shot-- steal it from the best-- then call it a "homage!"

   Perry said he enjoys finding "moments like that, which is one of the great things about doing westerns. In this film, you'll see little touches, like a sign in town that says 'A. Devine Dry Goods,' referring to one of my favorite western character actors Andy Devine. I got to paint stuff like that on the buildings. I love doing that."

   Perry added that he's been in talks with the folks at Hallmark about turning his Goodnight character into a movie franchise. "I've got stories in mind, and now it's just a matter of scheduling."

   So we can look forward to another western hitting the trail, and more horse wranglers getting work.
