LEP says:
There's 2 more good ones I enjoyed, however I can't remember the title of either. Perhaps If I describe them someone else will know.

1. A woman rancher buys a young Hereford bull to improve her herd. The other ranchers are full of scorn and say that it won't be strong enough to survive the winters etc and that she should have bought a long-horn etc. It's about her struggle to keep the bull alive during a very bad winter.

2. Ranchers are having trouble keeping their herds fenced in, as the cattle keep braking the fences. Barbed wire has just been invented and a woman rancher buys some and fences in her fields with it. The other ranchers say that her cattle will be torn to pieces, she proves that that isn't tue.

Any guesses anyone?

1 Could it be --- The Rare Breed -- James stewart, Maureen O'Hara and a rediculous looking Brian Keith with an attempt at playing a Scot with Red Hair and Beard

2 and "Man Without A Star" Kirk Douglas and Richard Boone

both of them excellent westerns- keep well

The Big Country, with Gregory Peck and Charlton Heston...classic in every way. Also The Good the Bad and the Ugly with Clint Eastwood is timeless.

The Hereford Bull one is definately the Rare Breed, I Buchan. However, I don't think the other one is Man without a Star. As far as I can recall nobody is actually wrapped in barbed wire. Near to or at the end of the film, the woman rancher actually drives her cattle towards the barbed wire, to prove the point to the doubting ranchers, and the cows veer off before reaching it.

The Anthony Mann westerns, particularly the James Stewart cycle, are about as good as it gets. Also the Scott / Boetticher westerns - available in a lovely Region 1 box set. Also Sam Fuller's "40 Guns" and "Run Of The Arrow" are hugely under - seen, if not under-rated.

The all-time best western: 3.10 to Yuma, 1957 - wonderful direction, career-best performances by Glenn Ford and Van Heflin......but NOT the remake with the awful Russell Crowe.
