    Jimmy Stewart was my favorite actor as well as being a better man than most.

      If you like Jimmy Sewart, you'll probably like this movie.

      I came across it one afternoon on and old westerns channel. As an added bonus, it co-stars Henry Fonda playing a bad guy, which was unusual for him.

        Fonda played the bad guy in more than one film.

              Didn't hurt that he was bomber pilot during the war and ended up a general, either.

              The old generation of Western actors, Lancaster, Wayne, Peck, Cooper, Coburn, Bronson, Holden and the others, were cast in a different mold from this generation. Many had military service during the war and had grown up in a much more self-reliant America.

              Selleck and Elliot are the two best Western actors these days, IMO, tall men who look at home on a saddle.

                Basically because they ride a bike, and then have to flee to South America.

                Two no go's in a Western afaic.

                It's incredibly subjective - I know
                Lambert of Montaigu - Crusader.

                Bolgios - Mercenary Game.

                  Elliot plays the same roll over and over and over. I still enjoy watching him but a great actor he is not.

                    Not that enjoyable...........it was either that or one of the cooking shows....

                          I've probably seen it, but I'll watch it again when I have the time.

                          Thanks for the recommendation.
                          You, too, John.

                              Ulzana's Raid. In my opinion one of the most accurate depictions of Indian-American relations on the plains in a Hollywood movie.
                              And, of course, it is Burt Lancaster so. . .
