      That cuts a lot of film out such as Big Jake, The Alamo, Liberty Valance, many of the Eastwood films, Magnificent Seven, Rio Bravo and and and.
      The operative word in my post was "usually." There's nothing carved in stone.

        Or in space in the 29th century

          Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman

            You two brain storming again in a fantasy world that is and hasn't been. That's not a western in any sense of the word. Those are SI-FI.
