Now I like a good western

Kinda reminds me of being a kid, all those saturday morning pictures sessions,

theres been some really good if not quite factual films produced, 10 of my favourites are listed below


1, The Magnificent Seven (Yul Brinner version, the 1st one)

2, Shane, (with Alan Ladd)

3, The Wild Bunch (directed by Sam Peckinpah)

4, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, (eastwood in a real classic, the first spaghetti western I saw)

5, Shenandoah, (James Stewart and the effects that the Civil war had on a family trying to keep out of it)

6, Monte Walsh, (Lee Marvin, a lament for the passing of the old west)

8 Jeramiah Johnson (Robert Redford and the early push across the Blue Ridge Mountains)

9 Will Penny, ( charlton heston)

10, The Long Riders (jesse james and his gang)
What about the longest day, one of my all time favourites along with the spaghetti westerns

a lot of the westerns were so good not only for the big name but the support cast .
Strother Martin springs to mind as does Jack Elam ,Woody Strode and Ward Bond
Chill Wills, Gabby Hayes And Slim Pickens.
all great actors who made the western so good.
One of the best support actors as got to be Walter Brennan, brilliant

What about the Alamo.
One actor who always makes me smile is Hank Worden, played Mose Harper in the Searchers and the preacher in the Alamo. He has been in many films but mostly smaller parts.

"Another vote for `carry on cowboy`, you either appreciate the pure silliness or you don`t. Not really a western fan although
the spaghetti films with Clit Eastwood were good. "

:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: is that now showing on the channel of the Hamster, PG?
I could sit down and watch `carry on cowboy` right now, do with a bit of light relief. Getting a good kicking:)

Probably one of the most Emotive scenes and soundtrack ever in a cowboy film, Slim pickens !

I got the full demo sound track mick, and play it a lot. Billy 1 2 and 3, get plenty of hammer.
'For a Few Dollars More' was a favourite too.

Does " Dances with Wolves count " ..
Someone has already suggested Blazing Saddles and any western with John Wayne or Clint Eastwood gets my vote.

All I will say is...Ahahahahaaaaaaa...

No prizes for guessing but a classic of film composing from Ennio Morricone only matched by John Williams bass hook in Jaws. Very few pieces of soundtrack where you hear 5 seconds and can name the film.
