    Yep, seen them all, several of them many times. I'd guess I've seen Stagecoach (original version,) over 100 times. Same with Shane.

    Top 10 list too short. I don't see The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, or The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

    Yep, but lots of 'classics' missing. Two John Wayne movies I've watched over and over are "Horse Soldiers" and "Rio Grande". And there's a bunch of Burt Lancaster movies that are great, "Lawman", "Apache", "Valdez is Coming" and "Ulzana's Raid"? And no Steve McQueen movies there either. How about "Nevada Smith"?

    ahhh...a movie that could never be made today and if it was, it would be protested into oblivion.

    I just learned something new about Westerns yesterday. There were a slew of them made in Italy back in the 60's. They were called spaghetti westerns. The films included The Good, the Bad and the Ugly with Clint Eastwood.

    Sergio Leone was one of the more famous directors of spaghetti westerns.

    That's where Clint Eastwood and several other stars here, got their start. It was interesting to me only to see how the Italians looked at our West. Some things were pretty outlandish. Didn't care much for any of them. But they had good looking broads in them!!

    Them too! Better looking women and longer looks at them in the Bond films.
