Ten Western Movies You Don’t Want to Miss

       True Grit seems to be a success, pulling in almost $90 million in its first 12 days and becoming the Coen Brothers’ biggest film thus far.  And the other morning I read a list on msn.com of the top 10 Western films that you don’t want to miss: 

  • Stagecoach – 1939, with John Wayne
  • My Darling Clementine – 1946, with Henry Fonda
  • Shane – 1953, with Alan Ladd
  • The Searchers – 1956, with John Wayne and Jeffrey Hunter, one of my favorite actors of that time
  • The Wild Bunch – 1969, with William Holden
  • McCabe & Mrs. Miller – 1971, with Warren Beatty and Julie Christie
  • Dances With Wolves – 1990, with Kevin Costner
  • Unforgiven – 1992, with Clint Eastwood
  • Open Range – 2003, with Kevin Costner, Robert Duvall, and Annette Bening
  • The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford – 2007, with Brad Pitt.

       I’ve seen only 5 of these, and they were pretty good.  Now I guess I should watch the others…

Feel free to leave a comment, and please come back often – I write and post every day!  And if you like what I have to say and how I say it, you’ll probably enjoy my novels as well.  They’re listed below, and you can read more about them on my website, http://www.randolphmase.com.  In the near future (in the next week, I hope!), I’ll have excerpts of my books that you can read, accessible on my site.  You can get a sneak preview at http://randymase.com – designed and built by my son Don.  Please check it out!
