YouTube Is A Dangerous Place...

It's where free time goes to die...

Stretch sent me a link to this video, which is a gathering of 1950s, 60s, and 70s western actors brought together for a "western reunion". As a child of the 1980s, I was astonished to see Alan Hale Jr. (the Skipper) and Denver Pyle (Uncle Jesse) in different roles.

Well, then I found this:

Which was pretty good - especially considering that Tombstone, Unforgiven, and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly make the list.

And, I also found that "Tombstone" is available - complete.

Goodbye, free time...

That is all.

Hee-hee, you can sleep when you're dead.
And any Top-10 list that doesn't include The Duke's "Fill your hands you Son-of-a-bitch!" can not be taken seriously.

Where's the whole Silverado sequence from the ranch to the end in the street? Have to agree with Unforgiven, great shootout, great lines in the aftermath, all-around great movie.

Some good stuff, some crap.

OK, Open Range has a great gun fight. Not accurate, but entertaining.

Once Upon A Time In The West has several great gun fights. It might be the best western movie of all time.

Where is Shane?

Or Shane Lite aka Pale Rider?

Stretch is right. How can you NOT have John Wayne on the list. Ever hear of a movie called "The Shootist"?

Django? I've never heard of it before this and I watch a lot of westerns. Even with the totally fake belt fed Gatling Gun, it sucks.

I won't even go into the gun fights that Jimmy Stewart portrayed.

OK, I will.

Bend of the River
The Far Country

Just to name two.

This list seems to be compiled by people who watched 10 westerns total.

OMG as the kids say, how did I forget the end of The Shootist? Love that, the old bird is too tough to die until a backshooting coward hits him. I saw it in the theatre and several people yelled at Ron Howard to "shoot him in the balls" when the bartender fell backwards.

+1 for Shane, and The Shootist. Might add the Long Riders Northfield bank robbery.

Most real life, The Man who Shot Liberty Valance.
The Duke dry gulched Lee Marvin.

Jay, just go ahead and join the S.A.S.S. and let your Inner Cowboy Ride Free!

For Mid-Life Crisis', Cowboy Shooting is relatively Cheap and you don't have to worry about what the Wife will say when you come home in a Ferrari. ; )
