"I guess we all died a little in that d**n war."

What an ending! One of the greatest in my opinion. I love the goodbye scene between Josie Wales and Fletcher. It's powerful, poingnant, and beautiful. It kind of reminds me of "Shane" and "Once Upon a Time in the West's" goodbye ending scenes.

just saw the movie on TCM (first time). I give it a 7.5/10

The ending "we all died a little in that damn war" was a really good line.  ("never seen so many men wasted so bad")

at the end, when Josey is bleeding and riding away, I wonder if it is meant to be ambiguous as to whether or not he lived? (I know there is a big argument about the similar ending with "Shane," whether or not he lives at the end, though I never thought he dies).

the reason I don't think Josey dies is cuz you see he rides into the sun, as if a new day is dawning in his life, a new future, etc.... but if it is meant to be clear that he lived, then what is the significance of the blood dripping from him at the end...?

Anyway, enjoyable movie, definitely worth a watch

Yep, Josey is a really good film, and I say Josey lives.  I saw this first time in theater in 1976, girlfriend had to sit on a board where back seat of my VW had been, as all but the driver seat were out getting upholstered.  I watched the first 15 minutes the other day.  TCM is having Civil War type films Mondays this month, maybe will have GBU.  GBU was even listed recently in local newspaper as one of the 10 best Civil War related films.

Unforgiven and Josey are (my opinion) Clint's two best US westerns.

TCM doesn't have GBU listed on their website for this month, I'm afraid.

Yeah, I noticed lots of Civil War films on TCM lately; I really love how TCM often groups films together like that eg. 160th anniversary of Civil War so showing lots of Civil War films now; around a particular actor's birthday they may show a bunch of his films etc...; they recently had a whole Marlon Brando thing so I saw "A Streetcar Named Desire" and "On the Waterfront" for the first time (btw.... Vivien Leigh irritates the hell outta me).

on that note, TCM has been showing lots of films from the great Sidney Lumet lately, cuz he recently passed away. (Just saw 12 Angry Men for the first time last night.... Fonda is awesome as usual. I think his voice/accent/dialogue is probably my second-favorite of all-time; my favorite dialogue actor of all-time is James Mason; IMO his accent is easily the greatest in Hollywood history  :))

Without any doubt. And all the others are far behind.

I only saw "Unforgiven" once, but I did not like it. I never connected with the story.... I liked the Western town set and the Gene Hackman character, but I really did not love the movie. I know I am in the (very small) minority on this one; perhaps I'll watch it again sometime soon and reassess it

Sad to say I haven't been able to take advantage of TCM's Civil War marathon, way too much school work lately. At least they're having Gettysburg on next Monday (providing of course I can stay up for all of it).

I don't have DVR - but I do have a DVD recorder.  It works on Cinemax and TCM, seems to shut off on the Encore tier of films, something about digiatl protection.  So films on Encore (including Encore Westerns) tier go onto VHS tapes.
