    Saw this one last week-end.

    A True Western in all aspects imho, though certainly not the best.

    As for speech, it's hard to beat Sergio Leone, imho

    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    Best speech?

    I've been shot five times, knifed twice, bit on the ass by a pig, stomped on by a horse and sat on by a mule. And once, in the winter of '91, a grizzly chewed my big toe off. And I've survived two avalanches, three blizzards, five Indian uprisings and seven Presidential elections, but I ain't never been owned by no woman nor dog.

    In the genre of Comedy-Western I give you one of my favorite movies; The Great Scout and Cathouse Thursday.

    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. . .

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

    Thanks for the recommendation.
    You, too, John.

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

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

    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
