Not movies but I just started watching the old black and white Gunsmoke show and dang they are good. I especially like because of James Arness. What a cool story. 6'7", worked loading and unloading freight cars and as a logger early in life. Wanted to be a fighter pilot but was too tall for cockpit. He did join Navy and earned three bronze battle stars, the World War II Victory Medal, the Combat Infantryman Badge, and a Purple Heart. Had severe wound to right leg during a battle and several surgeries to follow , but stayed in the Navy, until he had to be honorably discharged. They say he suffered much pain at times mounting horse on Gunsmoke. Talk about "a man's man".

Lawman with Burt Lancaster and Lee J. Cobb.

Once Upon a Time in the West with Henry Fonda in a rare villain role, along with Claudia Cardinale, Charles Bronson and Jason Robards. The plot doesn't really matter, it's the imagery, scenery, and music that makes it a joy to watch. Being a Sergio film, there's not a lot of idle chit-chat.

The Lonesome Dove mini-series was very good, too.

A question for you Western connoisseurs: in The Sons of Katie Elder, is there ever any mention that confirms Katie is the same Kate Elder, aka Big-Nose Kate, that was Doc Holliday's girlfriend? If not, why did they choose her name for the movie?

We recently bought the complete box set of DVDs of ALL episodes of Gunsmoke. We are watching them is order, so far almost through season three. Agree, Matt made the show but Doc, Kitty, Chester and later Festus all played great roles in the show.

Yeah, Paint Your Wagon. "Whatever the bid is, I double it!" Jean Seberg up for auction.

Lee Marvin was born for that role.
