Which movies are the most realistic, whilst still being a good movie?

I'm kinda thinin' Unforgiven, with Clint.

Bulldog

Unforgiven was good. Personally, I liked Lonesome Dove. Of course, I can't help but to like Tombstone.

But on the not-so-realistic side, I still enjoy all the John Wayne flicks: Stagecoach, The Searchers, The Man Who Shot Liberty Vallance, Hondo, McClintock, Rio Bravo, Rio Lobo, Rio Grande, El Dorado, Big Jake, Cahill: U.S. Marshal, True Grit, The Shootist. You just can't beat a good John Wayne western. I especially enjoy seeing him with the same rig throughout most of his movies. The only thing I can't stand is seeing all those Buscadero rigs on the other actors.

Bulldog, at this time I'm re-reading Lonsome Dove and will re-watch it again when completed. As for the Duke, any movie he was in --I'll watch. My favorite John Wayne western would be 1) True Grit, 2) The Shootist, 3) The Cowboys--that one choked me up.

Prichard, how about The Magnificent 7?

The reason for this post was to help remind me of good Westerns that I need to watch again. It's helping. Thanks.

Wild Rovers, with Wm. Holden, Ryan O'Neil & Carl Malden.

Any of the Loius Lamour, TNT made movies with Sam Elliott, Tom Selleck, etc. are good for realism.

"Lonesome Dove" is fantastic! I can sit and watch it all the way through and still be sorry that it's over.

John Wayne movies I really enjoy are "The Searchers","She Wore a Yellow Ribbon","The Man Who shot Liberty Valance","Stagecoach",and "Red River".

Other worthwhile Westerns are "Shane","The Gunfighter","The Big Sky",and "The Westerner".

Any John Ford/John Wayne movie and any Jimmy Stewart/Anthony Mann Movie.

More modern westerns I like are "Unforgiven","Pale Rider",and the TNT offerings "Last Stand at Saber River" and "Conagher",a movie that proves that Sam Elliott is the best cowboy star we have today.

"Tombstone" is like a '34 Coupe hotrod-not entirely historically correct,but it gives a hell of a fun ride http://216.199.9.84/NonCGI/smile.gif

All the above - the more recent seem to strive for a little more realism. Also "High Noon" among the classics, but as has been pointed out many times - that a town could be such a bunch of wimps in those frontier days stretches things a bit (today, mind you...).
Just by chance been seeing two videos I ordered together (amazon.com): "Quigley Down Under" (ok ok Aussie friends - agree you wouldn't need an imported 'yank' to sort things out) and "Valdez is Coming" - Burt Lancaster... both very good and both have some long range Sharps rifle shooting --- thing they are telling me something... http://216.199.9.84/NonCGI/smile.gif

Who saw "The Last Outlaw" with Micky Rorke (sp?). It was a HBO Movie. It was good. HEY... it also had a Sharps... coincidence? I think not!

I've seen all of the above and agree they are all good. A few I would add would be The Professionals, The Good the Bad & the Ugly, Ulzana's Raid, McKenna's Gold, Tom Horn and for the offbeat - the Trinity movies, Waterhole No. 3, Paint Your Wagon, North to Alaska; to name a few.
Luckily I have a generous video collection and Starz Western channel on my satellite dish :)

Check "Vera Cruz" with Gary Cooper and Burt Lancaster.

"Son of the Morning Star", about Gen. Custer and his last stand was compelling, especially in the comparisons between the General and Crazy Horse, his counterpart on the opposing team.

Who can forget, "They Died with Their Boots On", with Errol Flynn?

Black Robe and Last of the Mohicans, while not strictly westerns, have plenty of blood curdling action, in MHO.

Ya know, I was just reviewing everyones favorites when I noticed a shocking lack of mention. I think this might be because of the political views of the "stars". What is your opinion of ........ Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid?

Paul B.
June 24, 1999, 01:39 PM
I particularly liked Kevin Costners WYATT EARP. DANCES WITH WOLVES is another favorite of mine. The WILD BUNCH, a true classic. QUIGLEY, another top movie. I liked all Clint's spagheti westerns too, even if they were a bit unrealistic. You left out Steve McQueens TOM HORN. History has shown that Horn used a 30-30 Winchester during his Wyoming days. Not the 45-60 that was used in the movie although he did use one in earlier times. Still a good movie.
When I was a youngster, John Wayne's early westerns didn't thrill me. They didn't have cars in cowboy times. (Shows how dumb I was.) It wasn't until I read Elmer Keith's autobiography that I realized that some cars were in use. I believe Keith called them "skunk wagons". Makes some of those early Wayne movies more interesting.
Some of the westerns I have not seen are by William S. Hart. I once read an article about him, and it was said that he not only lived the life, but insisted on authenticity in his movies. (I have been watching the silent movies on TMC lately. They're kind of fun.) WILD BILL is not too bad. There is some great gunplay in that one. One of the western actors I miss is Lee Van Cleef. He played a great bad guy.
Why am I sitting here writing this? I'm gonna go plug in a western and enjoy myself.

'The Professionals', with Lee Marvin, Robert Ryan, Burt Lancaster, Woody Strode. Excellent atmosphere and the actors look like they know what they're doing. Details are excellent except for one millisecond where Marvin is holding a Browning High Power (circa 1916) and the use of a M1903A3. To offset that they use 1897 Winchesters and a Lewis gun very effectively. Good sound track, and the closing lines are unbeatable!

Paul B.
June 26, 1999, 04:52 PM
Gotta add one I left off. SOLDIER BLUE. Starred Candy Bergan as a woman captured by Indians. Ends up with the Sand Creek Massacre, if I remember correctly. It is a movie that will totally tick you off at the end.

Lucas: "Rules? In a knife fight?"

Paul B: "Soldier Blue" was a great movie.

I sorta judge movies by whether I can watch when I'm alone and nobody is there to share the emotions. So, I sorta vote for "best" as being "The Professionals". Then, the first half of "The Magnificent Seven", as the characters are developed.

The only western which turns me off is "Shane", and only because of that damned little kid's whiny voice, "Shane! Come back, Shane!" (Old Farts get that way.)

El Chimango Pete
June 27, 1999, 04:49 PM
Art: It must be the aging memory cells getting clogged again but would swear Shane turned around and plugged the danged kid just before riding off into the Sunset.

Re Butch and Sundance: They're just back from Bolivia and say they got two movie guys - Newman and Redford I think they said their names were - to stand in for them as the Bolivian Army was getting close...

It was a good and well made picture - Hollywood Correct. If actors want to shame themselves off stage its sad, but their own affair... not all can be endowed with intellects proportional to their acting ability.

Bill. Only because I forgot it. Yes. It was great. I just added BARBAROSSA to my collection. I've got most of Clint Eastwoods pasta westerns, but I can't seem to find THE OUTLAW JOSIE WALES. I kept bypassing it, and now that I want it, it's not around. Oh well, such is life inthe far west. I guess the only westerns I don't like are the ones where the hero (?) sings to his horse. You know, the horse opera?
While not a movie, I really liked the LONESOME DOVE TV series, especially the "outlaw years".

I kinda like to divide Westerns into 'old', 'middle' and 'new age' categories. 'Old' movies concentrated on the epic aspects of the Western movement. 'Stagecoach' is the best of these, I think. 'Yellow Ribbon' and 'Red River' are other examples. The 'middle' years of the Western, emphasis was on the character of the people, and the 'anti-hero'. The best of those is one no one has mentioned: 'Hombre', from a story by Lous Lamour, starring Paul Newman. 'New Age' Westerns often take themes from the earlier types, and raise the myth to Olympic proportions...the anti-hero is elevated to the status of a demi-god. 'High Plains Drifter' is a great example of this trend. For a while, the Western was defunct...the singing cowboys and TV juveniles had sunk it with their sanitized and unhistoric depictions. But with films like 'Little Big Man', 'The Shootist', and 'Unforgiven', recent film makers have shown that the genre still has huge potential for telling a good story. slabsides

Hi guys,

You had to be quick, but did anyone catch the scene in The Unforgiven where Clint Eastwood levers the Spencer, pulls the trigger, realizes that Spencers don't work that way, and quickly cocks the hammer?

He was quick on the uptake and if you don't know what you are looking at, it goes by fast.

August 4, 1999, 04:41 PM
Here's my thoughts on this matter:

Lonesome Dove- great story, great characters;
The Shootist- my favorite from the Duke;
Tombstone- great fun...I'm sure you guys noticed that at the OK Corral, Doc manages to squeeze 3 shots out of a double barrel shotgun without reloading. You know the BATF is irate over that modification.;
Once Upon A Time In The West- Claudia Cardinale's auburn hair and brown eyes;
Clint Eastwood's films have always topped the list, especially For a Few Dollars More, Unforgiven, and Josey Wales. I really like his rugged individual type of characters and their cool demeanor. I also liked Lee Van Cleef in those movies. But to me the greatest part of the spaghetti westerns was Clint's 4 3/4 inch Colt SAA. I would trade my back teeth for a set of those wood grips with inlaid silver cobras!!!

I can't find fault with any of the movies that you guys have listed.

Any western with John Wayne or Clint Eastwood is a winner in my book. I don't watch them for historical accuracy - they're not documentaries. I watch (and love) westerns because they are a poetic representation of an era that was brief but had a huge impact on those of us who live (or wished they lived) west of the Big Muddy (and possibly east of the Sierras.)

They're quintessentially American: justice triumphs over evil (most of the time) and the good guys do and say the things that we'd want to do and say if we were in the same spot. What more could you want?

But if I had to pick a favorite, it would be Lonesome Dove, at least until another John Wayne marathon pops up on the tube.

Great fistfight (between Taylor & Borgnine), High drama, and great action.

Rod Taylor, Ernest Borgnine, John Mills, Luciana Paluzzi, James Whitmore.

Netflix sez: 1967NR - Gordon Douglas's gritty 1967 Western proves war can be hell for both sides in a conflict; in this case, it's American Indians protecting their turf and soldiers assigned to protect a fort. Both factions are on the alert, tensed for action, and it doesn't help that some of the military men are eager to push buttons.

The Assassination of Jesse James is one of the better new westerns and a very dark movie. Also, where I live several contemporary Westerns were filmed that were not all that bad - 3:10 to Yuma and Appaloosa - both involving their fair share of gun fighting.

The Sons of Katie Elder- the scene where The Duke uses the pair of six shooters is classic!

Best movie rant has got to be Edmond O'Brien as Sykes from The Wild Bunch.

Tector Gorch: Silver rings.
Dutch Engstrom: [upset] "Silver rings", your butt! Them's washers! Damn!
Lyle Gorch: Washers. Washers. We shot our way out of that town for a dollar's worth of steel holes!
Pike Bishop: They set it up.
Lyle Gorch: "They"? Who in the hell is "they?"
Sykes: [laughs hysterically] "They"? Why, they is the plain and fancy they, that's who "they" is! Caught you, didn't they? Tied a tin can to your tail. Led you in and waltzed you out again. Oh my, what a bunch! Big tough ones, hunh? Here you are with a handful of holes, a thumb up your ass, and a big grin to pass the time of day with. They? Who the hell is "they?"

No one's mentioned it yet, but a really good one is McCabe and Mrs. Miller. The music is dated, but Julie Christie is HOT, and Warren Beaty's acting is just right.

And finally, The Ballad of Cable Hogue, another Sam Peckenpah movie.

You have the speakers reversed--Bishop says "Let's go" and Gorch says "Why not?".

I think the most famous line, however, is from the beginning of the movie: "If they move, kill 'em". Sam Peckenpah's biography is titled that, as well as a song by Primal Scream.

The desert scenes are so much better in all westerns on HD--the desert just comes to life. I was fortunate enough to see The Wild Bunch back in the late 90s on the big screen when it was re-released.

Yes, "The Wild Bunch" is one of the best, not only because of the story or filming, but it had several actors near the end of their careers, just like the characters in the film. Great actors from a previous era. None better. Holden, Ryan, Borgnine, O'Brien, Johnson, Oates.

They don't make actors like these anymore. Real men with real lives previous to film. Now they're just prissy wannabees. Sad.

I've managed to accumulate a fair assortment over the years, including most of the titles mentioned so far.

When I've "just gotta" watch a western though, the ones I'm most likely to reach for these days are: "Barbarosa" ("You been s--t outta luck ever since you was born, ain't ya?"), "Unforgiven" ("You shoulda thought of that before you decided to decorate your saloon with my friend!"), "Open Range", or "The Outlaw Josey Wales".

On the increasingly infrequent occasion that I've got six+ hours free at one time, "Lonesome Dove".
