Saturday night at the movies - westerns on YouTube

Recommended Posts

Looks like a good one.

 

Of course every time I see Walter Brennan's name all I can think about is the club owner in Good Morning Vietnam.  :D

Real typical B-Western. It's interesting to watch how the two revolvers change from butt forward to butt backwards.  

 

 

 Ken Maynard made the same movie a year earlier as The Two Gun Man.

Here is one from "down under".  Based on a real life outlaw Daniel Morgan who became a bushranger in New South Wales in 1865.   Said he carried 8 pistols.   Mad Man Margan was played by Dinnes Hopper.  He shot frontier gunfighter in the movie.

Great quality picture and sound.  Lots of stars.  Gregory Hines does some amazing gun handling.   Lots of gunfighter action.

Here is a fun western/comedy/musical with a lot of good scenery from the railroad trip from Durango to Silverton.   Has Walter Brennan and many others you'll recognize.   Marilyn Monroe has an uncredited part as a dancer.

Here is a Joel McCrea feature. 

 

 

Four faces West has the distinction of being a western without a single shot fired.

Here's one for the Wild Bunch fans.  A wacky comedy staring Roy Clark and Mel Tillis set in post 1900 west. Lots of other Nashville folks and cameos by other stars. Big shootout with 03 Springfield,  1911, and pump shotgun.

Great John Ford western with the usual crew of actors.   Don't let the title throw you off.  This is a very fictionalized telling of the shootout at the OK Corral. 

 

I suspect this one won't last long on YouTube.

Good Jeffrey Hunter  western.   Martin Pawley in the movie The Searchers.  He had a good acting career going but died at age 42 from a stroke.

 

 

Here is a double feature this Saturday.   Just a fun movie with Christopher Lloyd and a lot of other great characters.

Good quality movie with a non-typical western plot.  Looks like Clark Gable is riding the famous movie horse "Steel".

 

 

Here is a typical B-Western except it starred the baseball great Lou Gehrig.

Here are a couple of more modern westerns that are a bit different..

 

 

This one is kind of strange.  Very few people and very little dialogue.  Set in the early mountain man era - kind of. 

 

 

 

This one is kind of a stinker.  The redeeming is in its cast. Mickey Rooney plays an old outlaw just out of prison.  Randy Travis and Larry Gatlan play two of his sons. Ben Johnson, Ernest Borgnine,  Ned Betty, and with Billy Bardy playing an old prosecutor.  Rated R.

Charles Bronson and Toshirô Mifune team up to recover a ceremonial Samurai sword.

David O. Selznick tried to top his Gone With the Wind movie with Duel in the Sun.  But he was on drugs, had his wife Jennifer Jones playing the leading lady, and made a rambling movie that was 20 some hours long before it was edited down to just over 2 hours.  Anyway, a lavish movie with lots of good actors - just turned out to be a turkey. 

 

 

On the other hand,  here is a great African western with nobody we know. 

 

Jock of the Bushveld (1986)

Based on a true story by Sir Percy Fitzgerald, this film tells of his adventures in the bushveld in the late 1800's. Fitzgerald is an Irishman who goes to the South African bush to seek his fortune.

Last major work of Dan Blocker.  Really great cast of 1970s stars. 

 

 

Lee Marvin, Robert Culp,  Oliver Reed,  Strothers Martin in a comedy western - a little on the ronchy side.
