    Stagecoach - the 1939 original version with John Wayne and Claire Trevor.

    She Wore a Yellow Ribbon - Jon Wayne and a very solid cast. Some of the
    writing was pretty lame

    The Outlaw Josey Wales

    Lonesome Dove.

    The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

    Open Range - not really a Costner fan, but he was ok in this one and as usual
    Duvall carried the movie.

    Tombstone - Val Kilmer made this movie a good one.

    An honorable mention goes to Riders of the Purple Sage, I don't
    recall the names of the lead actors, because the book was one
    of the first "big westerns" I ever read and I like Zane Grey. I
    should read it again this winter.

    For T.V. I agree with Bonanza but I liked

    The Legend of Custer.

    Branded

    Lonesome Dove

    The Rifleman. and Also

    The Wild-Wild West.

    For films it's hard to say. Open Range and Broken Trail two of the newer ones were both very good. The Ford-Wayne films were all very good as well. But the list would get pretty long.

    Was Brokeback Mountain a Western? Not that there's nothing wrong with it...

    No. Definitely not a western.
     
  6. Nobody mention. The Cowboys. Maybe one of the Dukes best movies.

    I liked Have Gun Will Travel with Richard Boone as Paladin. He was a real suave gunslinger

    John Wayne is in a category of his own. What a great actor.

    Sorry to harsh on The Duke, but I always felt he did too much talking and not enough shootin'.

    Don't talk'-Tuco

    Unbeknownst to most TV viewers Palladin actually carried a Browning Hi-Power which certainly made him the "suavest of the suavest" gunslingers of the Ol' West. But then aren't all who tote a Hi-Power suave gunslingers ! :)

    13 + 1 in a Hi-Power certainly trumps 5 in a Colt SAA (chamber under the hammer left empty) when the chips are down. ;)

    Okay, we get it. You have a fetish for antique guns.

    I've been watching the wrong program, because Paladin carried a revolver.

    What Richard Boone may have carried when he wasn't on the show is something completely different. Just saying....

    But what about the radio version of Have Gun - Will Travel ? Just maybe that's when Palladin carried a Hi-Power. Hmmm...ever think of that...I guess not. ;)



    Have GunWill Travel is an American Western series that was produced and originally broadcast by CBS on both television and radio from 1957 through 1963. ... That radio series debuted November 23, 1958, more than a year after the premiere of its televised counterpart.

    9mm Hi-Power

    Sirius' "Classic Radio Show" carries the radio version - again starring Richard Boone in the leading role - and they're quite well done - compelling stories, dramatic "action" etc..
