Some people consider Johnny Guitar a noir, too.

What do you consider a Western noir? Is it subject matter - every revenge Western? Or is it cinematography? If cinematography, you can even stretch it to My Darling Clementine and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.

Anyway, every Western noir (as well as every Western non-noir) has its own thread in the American Western Index or Spaghetti Western Index.

I'd say a combo of subject and cinematography.

Station West is a clear-cut Western Noir.

If you wanna get nuts, we can include every "gunfighter with a past" movie. Which basically includes half the Westerns made from 1950 on. The Gunfighter, all the Anthony Mann-James Stewart Westerns, half the Boetticher-Scott Westerns ....................

It sure is (Station West). Agree. We don't want to get nuts. It's just a list I won't link to anything.

Yes, more dull than bleak. An astonishingly disappointing film. Especially considering that Rossen is the director I couldn't believe waht I saw.
