How about taking a listen to a great rendition of a classic western song.  First heard in film by one of the big screen's greatest cowboys, Gene Autry.  Autry's greatness of course should be measured by the values he taught two generations of America's youth in darkened theaters on a Saturday afternoon:

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Good stuff.  Whenever I see Lee VanCleef, I think of sinkspur.  He used a LVC avatar for a long while.

  Same here!  VanCleef = Sink!
 
Would be a shame if he looked like Red Buttons.      :laugh:

Have been watching the Western movie channels and once again admiring the writing and moral messages in the Western genre.

Randolph Scott and Joel McCrea are two of the best.

I would have thrown in the close of "The Shootist", the gunbattle on horseback from the original "True Grit", and the last fifteen minutes of "The Wild Bunch".  :patriot:

The Wild Bunch was something else, wasn't it?

I'll bet Ryan wished that he could play one of the 'Bunch', instead of the pursuer.

Should have let William Holden and Robert Ryan switch roles.
