    Wanted Dead or Alive

    I like watching him reload in slow motion - putting those short 44-40 shells in, while his belt is full of .45/70 rounds. In one episode, a doctor removes one of his slugs and identifies it as a .30-30 bullet.

    Whatever..... old westerns require total suspension of disbelief.

    Josh sure does shoot a lot, and he is actually a lousy shot. Most of his shots go really really wild. Not like The Rifleman.

    I do like seeing all those soon to be star actors in minor roles.

    Yep, I recently discovered Westerns on the Web and have been enjoying all those old black and white's that truly shaped and informed who I am. Right was right and wrong got shot in the hand. ("Rustler's Rhapsody")

    Yep, I've noticed that too, also have you noticed that when cowboy shows started disappearing from TV our crime rate started climbing and has remained high since ?? There may be a corralation there somewhere. LOL

    I was a little too young to remember that show very well. Never seen it in reruns either. I dont think McQueen had made it to the big time yet, probably one of the ever fewer real men in Hollywood at that time.

    "The Sand Pebbles" will always be a favorite. He actually knew how to handle an 03 Spg. I suppose from his military service, seems like Marines, but dont quote me.
    The USA in 2014 ...Where we keep the deathly ill elderly alive on a machine, even if they want too pass, and yet abort a million unborn babies a year, that have no vote in the matter.


    Its interesting that the media calls conservative protestors, "militia" and "domestic terrorists" while world wide and in the states liberal protestors are always called "students".

    Yes, I noticed that, too. I recall seeing my first spaghetti Western in 1965, "For a Few Dollars More", and feeling confusion about who's the Good Guy here? They all seemed like crooks to me compared to the TV heroes. That blurring of black and white, right ad wrong, was beginning then, I believe.

    ...right on the money there....and the big stars followed the money down whatever blurred path it led them...for instance, Henry Fonda gave a great performance in the morality play "Incident at Ox Bow Creek".....later to lend his presence in the banal "Once Upon A Time In The West". They could (and did) say "Hey, it's just entertainment!"

    Keep in mind, the whole myth of the Old West began with the dime novels that cleaned up the reality of the heros and presented them as wholesome good guys. The truth of the times is closer to the Man With No Name triology than Roy Rogers or The Cisco Kid. We all like to have heros and don't want to admit they have clay feet. Remember, Reagan was once a democrat and sports writer Bat Masterson had a rather dodgy career in the Old West as a younger man.
