Oh, my!!! I feel like I am walking down "Memory Lane" for American TV!!

Remember that Clint Eastwood was Rowdy Yates on Rawhide . . . speaking of before and after photos! He did used to be a hot young thing . . . and a bad actor at that hehe!!

No for a good western you gotta be thinking more Sam Elliot, or Robert Mitcum if you want to go back a few years :)
John Wayne even :?:
An unusual western i enjoyed was " Dances with Wolves"

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly!!! classic spaghetti western with clint at his most monosyllabic!! :lol::lol:

Other interesting westerns . . . "Little Big Man" with Dustin Hoffman . . . although probably not considered a traditional western.

Really, John Wayne was the king of westerns for many years and I must have seen them all while growing up as those old westerns were standard fodder for weekend TV.

:lol: :lol: This is getting funnier.

Magnificent 7, yeah it was a very good movie and I like Yul Bryner, i could listen to those well modulated tones for hours.
Did not like him in Westworld though.
And as im prone to diversifying i think i will indulge that habit, Westworld made me think of Waterworld (Kevin Costner), he lost a lot of money on that movie, but i liked it :)
