Yeah somewhat. After the spaghetti western started to take off, we definitely seen the violence in American Westerns increase, meaning more blood, and less cut aways after shootings.

Well, many westerns have become violent, which makes the old westerns so unique.

Which reminds me, I am kicking myself for missing Shane...TWICE.

I agree. Many think it's the greatest American Western ever made. Great film and heavily homaged in "Once Upon a Time in the West."

Speaking of "VALDEZ IS COMING" Firecracker, is it really that good? I've read mixed reviews of this. I'm sure you can give me some insight on it. Thanks.

When I see it I'll review it. So far my favorite American Western is The Man who Shot Liberty Valance.

Excellent choice (and a much better choice than Shane would be in my opinion).

Great choice. It's a MASTERPIECE for sure. One of my favorite films. I still rank THE SEARCHERS, John Ford's other MASTERPIECE, as the greatest AMERICAN WESTERN ever. I just love how it's shot. It's so damn beautiful to look at. It also contains one of the best final shots to end a film ever as you know.

Yes the Searchers I've been wanting to see too. I like to watch all the Ford films, and any great American Western as long it's not Roy Rogers or stuff like that.

Thanks Silenzio. I did not know you thought this highly of THE SEARCHERS. That's good to know.  Smiley

Watched this again it was next on my random index card system.

Again WOW, its fastly going up on my Best Western list, you get these unexpected touches out of nowhere ie., there is a shot of Lancaster shooting Duval's horse out from under him, a few scenes later Lancaster with prisoner Duval in tow return to pass by the now disemboweled horse being devoured by coyotes and vultures.

A must get and see for those who haven't.

Now I have to see if I can find Ulzana's Raid, I may have caught parts of it years ago, but don't remember

Aren't these Lancaster westerns aired in USA? They are in Italy at least once a year, year and half.

 That's the sad thing, they are every once in awhile but not enough.  I caught a bunch of Lancaster westerns on a TCM-themed night.

 CJ, Ulzana's Raid is very good and that's coming from someone who watched it in pan-n-scan on AMC with commercials.  No whitewashing there, it's about as realistic a western as I've seen.  No super-soldiers who kill Apaches by the dozen or anything of the sort.  It might be the only western I've seen where a soldier actually shoots a woman rather than have her captured by Apaches.  Well worth checking out.
