    i ain't real big on westerns, but as i get older i find some of the old ones kinda intriguing.

    watching the Magnificent Seven now. kind of a corny show, but what a cast.....:big_smile:

    Phil, you cant leave out Eli Wallich. Chuck Norris was just a pup in 1960 lol
    I find it very interesting that six years earlier there was a Japanese film by the name of The Seven Samurai exactly the same plot. It makes me wonder just how many other American movie scrips were borrowed from foreign films? If you really want to see a stare studded one watch How The West Was Won (1962), there are to many for me to name.

    actually, Jack, the Seven Samurai was what the mag seven was copied from....that SCRIPT. as corny as it was, wasn't all that bad as a film:big_smile:

    and clint eastwood would have been a nice presence in that movie wouldn't he?:smile2:

    James Coburn "Red" I think was my favorite. The gun vs. knife showdown and then another seen the kid says after Red drops a bad guy off a horse at some incredible distance with a .45 "that was the greatest shot I've ever seen" he replies "the worst........I was aiming at the horse" :smile2:

    Jack named some good ones.

    These may not have a lot of stars but they are some of my favorites.

    Once Upon a Time in the West A Sergio Leone film with Jason Robards, Charles Bronson, and Henry Fonda. I believe this is the only film Henry played a bad guy in.

    North To Alaska with John Wayne and Stewart Granger.

    Lonesome Dove

    Last of the Dogmen

    I know that at one time Steve McQueen was the highest paid actor in show business. Not that money makes you cool, but he was appreciated by lots of people and his acting legacy lives on.

    Jordan, I LUV "Jeremiah Johnson". One of my favorites of all time. Ya know, we have a member here called Jeremiah Johnson. I doubt it's Robert Redford incognito though. :smile2:
