    Scott would punch him in the gut! And then step over him!

    I did like Roy Rogers burgers though...... that Double-R Bar burger was something! A hamburger topped with ham and bbq sauce! Delicious! There was a Roy Rogers on my paper route! I delivered the afternoon paper!

    The bar scenes in Shane were just so very good. The sound editing of those scenes. Silent, except for a quiet voice or two, a scuffed boot. Nothing but the sounds of the fight(s).

    Jack Palance should be mentioned. His Jack Wilson in SHANE makes the film. Entirely.

    Ride The High Country is one of the best westerns.

    It is paradoxical, if you think of it, that the end of "the West," the end of the cultural mythos of the West in American culture, is in some ways emblematic of the end of the archetypal white man that the period represents. An end to the dominance of that identity in American cultural and social life. An end to the obsolescent values portrayed by Randolph Scott and others.

    It may well be one of the great historical ironies of the period.

    Low hanging fruit. We've done a pretty job of dancing all around him though.

    The Trinity movies are some of my favorite westerns. Also, if you don't mind spending a bit more, you can get all of them from Amazon in a box set.

    Gary Cooper really was a cowboy.

    Randolph Scott was a pool boy.
