Has there been a good Western to come out since Unforgiven? I'm not counting Django Unchained, which starts out as a Western, but then moves to Antebellum era Mississippi.

I can see The Revenant as a quasi Western. A frontier Western per se. Not a Western in the classical sense but def has some elements.

I think Death Roe went to Western but he's not a fan. He roots for MSU.

TV’s Wyatt Earp, Hugh O’Brian, has died at 91

Los Angeles — Hugh O’Brian, who shot to fame as Sheriff Wyatt Earp in what was hailed as television’s first adult Western, has died. He was 91.

A representative from HOBY, a philanthropic organization O’Brian founded, says he died at home Monday morning in Beverly Hills.

Until “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp” debuted in September 1955, most TV Westerns — “The Lone Ranger,” ‘’Hopalong Cassidy,” the singing cowboys’ series — were aimed at adolescent boys.

“Wyatt Earp,” on the other hand, was based on a real-life Western hero, and some of its stories were authentic. (The real Earp, who lived from 1848 to 1929, is most famous for his participation in the 1881 “Shootout at the O.K. Corral” in Tombstone, Arizona.)

Critics quickly praised it, and it made O’Brian a star.

Just saw the thread and immediately considered Harmonica. Love OUATITW.

Read Lonesome Dove then saw the series, own it, and still watch it. Best character I've seen Duvall play IMO.

The fly scene (with crappy sound).

It's what us koolkid premium posters call westerns.   ;-)


n. Slang
A movie about frontier or cowboy life; a western.
[From the prominence of horses, known for their taste for oats, in such films.]

I'm partial to the Virginian and Gunsmoke when it comes to TV westerns. Some episodes of
the other shows are ok.

I saw that one was on Amazon Prime yesterday and thought about watching it. How disturbing? Will I have nightmares? If I have nightmares can Travis use your bed to comfort me?

5 hour Big Valley marathon about to kick off on INSP - 1st episode with guest star Charles Bronson - a little sexual tension between him and that hot widow woman Victoria Barkley.

Probably was force fed too much Bonanza as a kid to appreciate Big Valley, Rifleman and others.

But I can watch John Ford directed Westerns back to back.
