By the way The Alamo was mentioned on the first page of this thread. Post #17. Wish there was a Blu ray of it. I think HD net shows it once in a while.I don’t see the Alamo mentioned at all- I would have thought it would show up in one or two lists.
maybe it’s not really considered a western?
Thanks for mentioning them. I’ll add them to my to watch list.I've re-read this thread completely and there's no mention of two Westerns I like a lot: The Unforgiven, directed by John Huston with Audrey Hepburn, Burt Lancaster and Audie Murphy and Hour Of The Gun directed by John Sturges with James Garner and Jason Robards.
For some of us that actually watched this movie in a movie theater, I didn’t think it was a generic western, especially if you were a 10 year kid in 1965.Just finished The Sons Katie Elder.
I thought it was an enjoyable yet generic John Wayne western. Middle of the road I would say.
Good supporting performances from Dean Martin. Dennis Hopper and George Kennedy as the evil gun for hire working for James Gregory’s standard land stealing, shoot ‘em in the back bad guy.
Another childhood favorite western in which I developed a huge crush on Gail Russell. A similar experience with Tall in the Saddle and Ella Raines.I’ve never seen it. I seem to keep discovering new John Wayne films that I am watching for the first time.
I’m halfway thru it and am loving it!
