I'm really enjoying your western series and seeing the progress you're making with your list in real time. Bravo!
It's funny, the first three months of this year, I only watched 9 of the 100 westerns. In April and May, I'm going to watch over 50 of them. I guess it took me a while to get going.;) I'll be slowing down starting in June because I will be expanding the number of westerns I watch beyond my 100 listed titles. As I stated earlier, some of those might be replacements for my original 100.

Fritz Lang's "Western Union" listed below is an underrated western in my opinion. It's not talked about much, but I always found it interesting, even if it's not historically accurate about Western Union's early days of stringing wire across the American West. This 1941 film stars Randolph Scott, Robert Young, Dean Jagger and Virginia Gilmore. Scott plays an outlaw on the run that finds an injured Jagger and gets him to safety, thus, saving his life. Their paths cross again and Jagger offers Scott a job with Western Union even though he knows that Scott was on the run. Young plays a young man from the East that works for Western Union, who's father was an investor in the company with Gilmore playing Jagger's younger sister, who also works for the company. One thing I always liked about this film is that it's only 95 minutes long. Usually when we have these type of historical westerns, they're usually much longer. There is some sound stage sequences, but there is some lovely location shots too in Arizona and Utah. Those vistas in Technicolor looked really good on my OLED.

By the way, Jagger plays Edward Creighton, who was actually involve with Western Union in those early days. The college Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska was named after him due to his widow's financial help that started the university. Also, his brother was involved in that university's development too with financial aid so the university is actually named after them. Much of the historical stuff wasn't accurate in this movie, but I thought people should know that Edward Creighton was a real person that Jagger portrayed in this movie and that he was involved with Western Union's development and was a pioneering businessman out of Omaha, Nebraska.

This was Lang's second western, his first being "The Return of Frank James" which was came out the year before this film. IMO, this western is the superior movie. The great reveal near the end of the film makes it so for me. When I first watched this movie, I didn't see that reveal coming, but it does explain the dynamics between Randolph and Barton MacLane's characters. Virginia Gilmore didn't play in a lot of movies, but her presence in this movie always gave me the impression that I've seen her beforehand in other movies.

The 2016 Kino Blu-ray's video presentation is a solid 4.0, though, I wish it had subtitles and an audio commentary. Next up I think is "Hombre" (1967) starring Paul Newman. Another favorite western that I also consider an excellent movie.

John Russell: Hey, I got a question. How are you going to get down that hill?

It will be very difficult for me to pick out my top ten favorite westerns, but this 1967 movie, adapted from another Elmore Leonard novel will definitely be part of that discussion. I vividly remember watching this movie in the Spring of 1967, during its theatrical run. The film's ending just stayed with me which was a daunting task at that particular age.;) The film evolves around a white man, captured by Apaches as a child in Arizona, but who runs away to the Apaches because of his preference to live with them. His adopted "white" father dies of old age and therefore, inherits his property which causes him to return to town. When he leaves town, he meets a small circle of passengers on a rented stagecoach and there the adventure begins for him and the other passengers and stage driver.

IMO, this is one of Newman's best acting performances in which he probably says less dialogue than any other movie in which he stars in. His character in this movie is about the complete opposite of Butch Cassidy in terms of personality and how he reacts to violence. The adapted screenplay by husband and wife team, Irving Ravetich and Harriet Frank expands Leonard's novel by adding more characters to the storyline along with some other changes. The excellent cast includes Diane Cilento, Fredric March, Richard Boone, Martin Balsam and a special mention to Frank Silvera. This was another Martin Ritt directed film with Paul Newman. I think they did a half dozen movies together. The brilliant Panavision color cinematography was another James Wong Howe special that was mostly filmed on location in Arizona and Nevada.

Elmore Leonard's western writings that have been adapted to the big screen include Joe Kidd, The Tall T, Valdez is Coming and 3:10 to Yuma. This particular movie is my favorite of the bunch with three of them being listed below. Though, not listed, I will be revisiting "The Tall T" and "Valdez is Coming" some time this year. As to "Hombre", I highly recommend this movie, not just as a western, but a generally outstanding film. Unfortunately, this was released on Blu-ray by Twilight Time so you might not be able to purchase this 2015 Blu-ray, but I'm pretty sure it's available in other Regions for those that are Region-free. Also, the iTunes HD digital is available which I do own as it does look vey similar to this BD. My video presentation grade for this disc is 4.5 out of 5. The audio commentary is very good and informative with some personal stories by the commentators.

These are my thoughts on "Devil's Doorway" back in 2019, which was my last viewing of this fine western until this morning.

"An underrated western directed by Anthony Mann with John Alton as cinematographer. That's right, Alton doing cinematography on a "Western" film and you sure can tell it's an Alton film by how certain scenes are shot with only natural lighting.:thumbsup: Yeah, Robert Taylor playing an Indian is not PC, but it's a movie filmed in 1949, and released in 1950, that still highlights the injustice done to the Indian Nations back in the day and to a certain extent even today. An Indian that fought for the Union and won the Congressional Medal of Honor during the Civil War still wasn't an American citizen that could his own land in Wyoming that his people settled on many years beforehand. A good supporting cast with Louis Calhern standing out as the baddie that hates Indians."

The one thing I want to add is that watching this movie makes me angry about how the Native Americans have been treated by the United States. This early Anthony Mann directed western is listed below as a favorite, but, it does boil my blood to watch it now. Another point I want to make is that John Alton's black and white photography is simply amazing in this western as you can't help to think of his film noir movies. Also, it deserves a Blu-ray release that this 2010 WA DVD.

It makes my heart heavy any time I read about the ever-lengthening number of injustices done to Native Americans. My best friend and I recently completed watching the series Longmire on Netflix (never watched it during its cable telecast), and one of the highlights of the series was that historical misdeeds against the various Indian nations cropped up often in the storylines, and I was ashamed that I didn't know more about it. It just wasn't taught in school when I was a student, and it should have been.

I loved it, too. My review of the Twilight Time Blu-ray is here.
I just remembered one criticism about "Hombre" that I forgot to mentioned earlier. It's the
demise of Cameron Mitchell and David Canary.
Those that have seen the movie know exactly what I'm talking about. It looks just horrible!

My first viewing of "Death Hunt" (1981) was in some rundown, downtown theater in Danville, Illinois. That was four decades ago in a movie theater long gone. I might be pushing the limit in calling this a western since it takes place in 1931/1932 with even an airplane in the movie. However, there aren't any motor vehicles in it and the movie takes place in the wilderness of the Yukon territories in Canada in which travel was either on horse, dog sled or on foot. I have to admit that this is a candidate for replacement below because of those issues, but not because I soured on the movie itself. I won't make that final determination until December.

The movie stars Charles Bronson, Lee Marvin, Andrew Stevens, Carl Weathers, Ed Lauter and a guest appearance by Angie Dickinson. ;) The plot is simple enough, a man hunt by the Canadian Mountie Police for a man that killed several people when forced to defend himself against aggressors. Albert Johnson is one dude, you don't want to mess with, as is Edgar Millen, the Mountie in charge of capturing him. Their cat and mouse pursuit takes place over several days in the Canadian wilderness as Johnson tries to escape the posse pursuing him by getting over the mountains into Alaska. Watching this film makes you feel cold with the frigid temperatures and snow covered terrain.

The movie plot is a bit of a mess, but I always found the movie entertaining as well as violent with strong performances by Bronson, Marvin and Weathers. The opening credits of this 2013 Shout! Factory Blu-ray are rough with excessive grain during their optical sequences, but the rest of the movie looks damn good. Though, some of the faces are a little on the red side at times. My overall video presentation grade is 3.5 out of 5. I have to revisit this BD in the near future as it has two audio commentaries.

In closing, this movie might not make the final cut below because I realized that I'm pushing the envelope as to what is a western, similar to other titles listed like "Hud", "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre", "The Last of the Mohicans" or even "The Professionals". Either way, it's still a favorite movie of mine from the early 1980's. I'm hoping my next western viewing is "Escape from Fort Bravo", but I'm not sure if the Blu-ray will get to me by Friday, so I might have to substitute another movie title from below.

My first viewing of "Death Hunt" (1981) was in some rundown, downtown theater in Danville, Illinois. That was four decades ago in a movie theater long gone. I might be pushing the limit in calling this a western since it takes place in 1931/1932 with even an airplane in the movie. However, there aren't any motor vehicles in it and the movie takes place in the wilderness of the Yukon territories in Canada in which travel was either on horse, dog sled or on foot. I have to admit that this is a candidate for replacement below because of those issues, but not because I soured on the movie itself. I won't make that final determination until December.

The movie stars Charles Bronson, Lee Marvin, Andrew Stevens, Carl Weathers, Ed Lauter and a guest appearance by Angie Dickinson. ;) The plot is simple enough, a man hunt by the Canadian Mountie Police for a man that killed several people when forced to defend himself against aggressors. Albert Johnson is one dude, you don't want to mess with, as is Edgar Millen, the Mountie in charge of capturing him. Their cat and mouse pursuit takes place over several days in the Canadian wilderness as Johnson tries to escape the posse pursuing him by getting over the mountains into Alaska. Watching this film makes you feel cold with the frigid temperatures and snow covered terrain.

The movie plot is a bit of a mess, but I always found the movie entertaining as well as violent with strong performances by Bronson, Marvin and Weathers. The opening credits of this 2013 Shout! Factory Blu-ray are rough with excessive grain during their optical sequences, but the rest of the movie looks damn good. Though, some of the faces are a little on the red side at times. My overall video presentation grade is 3.5 out of 5. I have to revisit this BD in the near future as it has two audio commentaries.

In closing, this movie might not make the final cut below because I realized that I'm pushing the envelope as to what is a western, similar to other titles listed like "Hud", "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre", "The Last of the Mohicans" or even "The Professionals". Either way, it's still a favorite movie of mine from the early 1980's. I'm hoping my next western viewing is "Escape from Fort Bravo", but I'm not sure if the Blu-ray will get to me by Friday, so I might have to substitute another movie title from below.

It has been quite some time since I last viewed Death Hunt, but I pretty much find myself in complete agreement regarding the merits of the film. I have always liked survival stories and was a huge Charles Bronson fan in the '70s / '80s, so this film was a natural for me. I tend to think of this film as more of an adventure vs. a Western for some of the reasons you elucidated. Regardless, it is a very enjoyable feature.

I'm not sure where I saw this theatrically, but in any event I do recall enjoying my initial viewing. I think this was a summer release, but it definitely made you feel the chill of the environment. In addition to Bronson and Marvin, I would also single out Ed Lauter who was always reliable and a real fixture in television and films during this period.

Solid adventure film and probably Bronson's best feature film in the '80s. (I loved the actor, but he was in some pretty unremarkable films in the '80s.) I need to watch this again.

I'm down to 38 titles to watch before the end of the year to complete watching all of my "100 All-Time Favorite Westerns". Again, this listing might be revised due to some of these titles being replaced by other western titles that I later deem more appropriate for my listing. I won't make that final determination until after I watch the original 100 titles, as well as, whatever titles that I think should qualify as replacements.

I know very well, Matt, when you reflect on the injustices done to your native peoples.
Here in Australia we're really only starting to come to terms with what evils were done when we displaced our Aboriginals from their historic lands. It does colour our viewing of so many films .. including one of my favourites, 'Calamity Jane', when Calam mentions to Wild Bill that she can understand why the "{injuns" fought so hard to keep their land (or words to that effect). Still, I can't stop watching that marvellous movie..

Nicholas Roeg's Walkabout deals with the topic. More recently PBS aired a documentary on Adam Goodes and his ill treatment by various entities

Tonight, I watched "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" (1969) starring Paul Newman, Robert Redford and Katharine Ross. Instead of the 2008 Blu-ray, I watched the 4K digital that I purchased from iTunes. I'm not going to say much now about the movie as I'm tired and ready to go to bed, but that I really enjoyed revisiting this movie again. Just a terrific western with smart and funny dialogue and great actors in it. It's really a shame that Newman and Redford didn't make more than two movies together as those two played off each other quite well. It's no accident that those two films had the same director and are consider iconic movies. It's hard to believe that this movie got mixed reviews when it opened, but the general public didn't care and flock to the theaters despite those reviews.

By the way, this Panavision movie deserves the full 4K treatment with a disc release that's probably not going to happen with it now being the property of Disney. I thought the 4K digital without any HDR looked really nice on my OLED. It's been years since I last watched that 2008 BD so I'm unable to compare that disc to this 4K digital's video presentation.

Roger Ebert famously did not care for the film taken as a whole, although (from his review) there are aspects he enjoyed...



I seem to recall Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert discussing the film and they both had their issues with the film (IIRC).

My Warner Archive Blu-ray arrived today of "Escape from Fort Bravo" (1953) starring William Holden, Eleanor Parker and John Forsythe. Of course, I immediately cued up this BD in my main HT and viewed it on my 65" OLED. This MGM western directed by John Sturges and co-written by actor Michael Pate was filmed in Death Valley and Gallup New Mexico. However, there are some sequences filmed either on the back lot or soundstage. We finally have a home video presentation that captures the beautiful on-location filmed sequences as prior video formats looked awful with that Anscocolor processing. This Blu-ray is a significant improvement and is like watching this movie for the very first time. Here are my prior thoughts from my previous viewing which was on DVD:

"I also started watching "Escape from Fort Bravo" (1953) on my DVR as I couldn't let a film with the beautiful Eleanor Parker go by without watching. However, after about 20 minutes I switched over to my 2008 DVD as that terrible Ansco Color started bothering me with that compressed video from the broadcast. I always thought this was a fine western, but considering who directed it that shouldn't be a surprise. John Sturges sure knew how to direct on location action films particularly, westerns. Having Robert Surtees as Cinematographer didn't hurt having him on this film out there in Death Valley or whatever other locations they used. The film takes place during the Civil War in which captured Confederate troops are held in a stockade out in the middle of the Arizona desert by Union troops guarding those prisoners and battling Apaches at the same time . A great cast with William Holden, Parker, John Forsythe, William Demarest, William Campbell, Polly Bergen, Richard Anderson and John Lupton. God, I would love a Blu-ray of this beautifully shot western."
