Remember the name, but that's all.

How about Guy Williams as Zorro, the TV series. And his nemisis Sgt Garcia was like Sgt Schultz in Hogan's Heros...

Saw everything...said nothing !!

I seem to like some of the darker stuff. A few of my favorites would be the newer Tombstone, the original 3:10 to Yuma, High Plains Drifter, and open Range.

There are almost too many to name.

I liked Tombstone as well.
i liked Tombstone too, very good movie. i saw that one at the theater when it came out, and seeing it on the big screen is the best for that one.

Some local theaters run older movies around me. I'll see if they won't have a release or if I can't send a request or something.
Tombstone w/ Kurt Russell is fantastic at the theater. it is one of those movies better seen at the theater. i have it on dvd, but it just isn't the same. maybe i can use this as a good excuse to buy that 81" flat screen tv! think my wife will go for my reasons?

on a side note, i really miss drive-ins. i had so much fun when we were kids and my father took us to them. there just are not very many left anymore. i remember in high school after i got my drivers license, we would go to the drive-in and take my old Ford truck and park so the bed faced the screen and set lawn chairs in the back and watch the movie. the drive-in had the sound where it could play through your radio on AM. so cool!

yes it is! i am a big John Wayne fan and like most any movie he has been in. the westerns are my favorites. his last one, The Shootist will be my all time favorite John Wayne movie. to me, the movie was a fitting end to all the movies he made, the character was befitting the Duke and showed him at his best. the Duke was a hero and a role model, too bad there aren't more like him. my wife is even a big John Wayne fan also. she won't pass up a John Wayne dvd up at Wal-Mart if we don't have it!
