- The Stalking Moon(1969);
A magnificently politically incorrect film starring Gregory Peck,
who has to escort a white woman and her half-breed brat,
a truly rotten kid, back to civilization while being
pursued by the kid's Indian father. Dad stalks the trio,
(you never see him until the end.) You get the creeps. You get ascairt.
Greg & the woman do not fall in love. He puts her on a train with the kid. The
kid's smouldering eyes tell you he ain't gonna stay with mom for long.

- Navajo Joe (1967) A fan writes:"...
for some comic relief in the Italian Western genre,
it's difficult to beat Burt Reynolds,
as a half-breed with a talent for killing
and mayhem that makes Rambo look like a
skirt-wearing poodle-walker! The theme song of this gem alone is
worth the price of admission. Rent it!"
- No Name on the Bullet (1958)
Directed by: Jack Arnold
(plays an assassin that rides into a
town with a lot of paranoid people. The end has a twist to it as well.
Murphy was well known as a lightning fast quick-draw artist that always
out-drew the stuntmen on the set of all the 40+ westerns he starred in.)
Guy Wilkerson (who was a "cowboy sidekick" to Tex Ritter back in 1937-1942)

Rec'd this list recently (02-14-02)from a pard; Howard Price:
Hannie Caulder (1972): Raquel Welch, Robert Culp, Christopher Lee, Ernest Borgnine, and two of the all-time great western character actors, the late Strother Martin and Jack Elam.
Nevada Smith (1966): the late Steve McQueen, Karl Malden, the late Brian Keith, Martin Landau.
Quick and the Dead (1987) anHBO movie out on video the original from Louie Lamour's story: Sam Elliot, Kate Capshaw, Tom Conti, Matt Clark.
The Professionals (1966): most of the cast (and the director) have passed away; Lee Marvin, Burt Lancaster, Woody Strode, Robert Ryan, Ralph Bellamy. Also starring Jack Palance and the lovely Claudia Cardinale.
The Long Riders (1980): one of the most unique casting ensembles ever, 4 sets of brothers (James & Stacey Keach as the James', David, Keith & Robert Carradine as the Youngers, Dennis and Randy Quaid as Ed & Clell Miller, Christopher and Nicholas Guest as Bob & Charley Ford).
Tom Horn (1980): the late Steve McQueen, Linda Evans, the late Robert Foxworth, the late Slim Pickens.
Shalako (mid 60's): Sean Connery, Bridgett Bardot, Honor Blackmon.
The Shootist (1976): the late John Wayne, Ron Howard, the late Richard Boone, Hugh O'Brien, Lauren Bacall.
Ballad of Cable Hogue (1970): Jason Robards, Stella Stevens, the late Strother Martin, the late Slim Pickens, L. Q. Jones, David Warner, R.G. Armstrong.
Culpepper Cattle Co. (1972): Gary Grimes, Billy "Green Bush", Bo Hopkins, Luke Askew.
Young Guns I&II (1988, 1990): Emilio Estevez, Charlie Sheen, Keiffer Sutherland, Jack Palance, the late Brian Keith, Christian Slater, William L. Peterson, Lou Diamond Phillips, James Coburn. (Estevez does the best Billy The Kid I've ever seen, and I love the Brushy Bill Roberts scene at the beginning and end of the sequel. But the director and screen writer got about everything historically wrong in this movie that they possibly could, it would take a long time to detail all the errors).
Winchester 73 (1950): the late Jimmy Stewart, the late Will Geer, the late Dan Duryea, Shelly Winters, the late Millard Mitchell. One of the all-time classic westerns.
The Gunfighter (1950): Gregory Peck, the late Millard Mitchell, Karl Malden, Helen Westcott, Skip Homeier, Richard Jaeckel. Another classic.
Stagecoach 1966: starring Alex Cord, Ann-Margaret, the late Slim Pickens and Keena Wynn. Wynn's portrayal of Luke Plummer and the ending of the movie (in addition to Bing Crosby's doctor, Red Button's whisky drummer and Mike Connors "Hatfield") were light years better than the 1939 original.
