Guest Contributor – War Pig – Favorite Westerns

My favorite western is Once Upon A Time In The West, followed by True Grit/ Rooster Cogburn (I consider them to be part one and two of a whole story), followed by Eastwood’s spaghetti trio. After that I like western comedies such as the Trinity movies with Terrence Hill and sometimes Bud Spencer. Blazing Saddle is a joy but could not be made today. Honorable mention goes to Quigley Down Under as it is set in Australia, and besides Selleck as the protagonist, it has an absolutely smashing musical score. I grew up watching westerns on TV and at the drive in. Roy and Dale. Lash LaRue, Rin Tin Tin, Sky King, Gene Autry, Gabby Hayes, Cisco and Poncho, you name it. I even belonged to the Rin Tin Tin fan club.

I really enjoyed Quigley Down Under.

Believe it or not, there is a more modern movie set in Australia called…you guessed it… Australia, that I thoroughly enjoyed, also. It’s got Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman.

And since you got me started on movies set in Australia… the Snowy River movies were childhood favorites. I’m not sure how good they are, but there are certainly some great memories tied to them for me. I might have to stream them over the holidays.

My wife is a horse nut. I introduced her to the Snowy River movies and got BIG husband points.
