Short and not too sweet
The Dentist is another Western short film (I’m rather into shorts at the mo), a nice little picture directed by Michael Brian Rawlins, starring him as the dentist, and co-written by Rawlins and Travis Jager, who plays the outlaw robber, the only other character.
It’s only 7 minutes long but nicely done, shot in an attractive and very ‘Western’ Tucson location with saguaros.
A salty outlaw holds up a bespectacled and timid man driving a wagon to rob him but the fellow has nothing to steal. He’s a failed dentist, without a sou. All he has is a chair and his kit of dental instruments. The outlaw is of course suffering from toothache. Well, I guess that was pretty prevalent in them days. The dentist offers to pull the offending tooth.
More I cannot say, for of spoilers there shall be none. But at 7 minutes you don’t have to wait long for the dénouement.
It’s on YouTube in good quality.
