My Favorite Westerns

A Celebration of Western Movies … Pardner!

For our American Friends: Still Champions of the Free World. “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” John F. Kennedy’s Inaugural Address, January 20, 1961 From deep hurt to profound hope. Let’s get to work. 

Love Song / Elton John Welcome to my long – long time friend, Brigita Kmera. You are most Welcome. My sincere apology to others who have joined me here over the time, but whom I have not extended an appropriate Welcome. Your company is much appreciated. Do not hesitate to comment. There are no Demi …

Don’t misunderstand what I said yesterday. Those who attacked the Capital must be arrested and taken to trial. Likewise, I had been saying for a long time that Donald Trump is mentally ill. It’s been very evident that he is incapable of rational thought or debate. Therefore unfit to be President and should have been …

Harmony is more important than being right. This simple statement of Wisdom applies to Ourselves, our Family, and to our Countries. Yes, we’d like to hang certain people – and they may well deserve it. But … is that the best thing we can do? In the interests and impact it has overall? Often not. …

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance / Gene Pitney    

1970 Don’t be dismayed folks. It’s just fake blood. From a fake person.

Thanks for the gift of these two gems Kris. Here comes that rainbow again Kris Kristofferson (Inspired by “The Grapes of Wrath” The scene was a small roadside cafe, the waitress was sweepin’ the floor, two truck drivers drinkin’ their coffee and two Okie kids by the door. “How much are them candies?” they asked …

It was a bit of a ruff Christmas for Rose and I. Shoveling snow after a huge snowstorm here I had a mild heart attack (there is such a thing, right?) Then Rose slipped and suffered a bad head injury. She spent 2 days in the hospital undergoing a battery of tests. She’s out now, …

Rose’s Favorite STILL one of the best versions of Little Drummer Boy. No need for theatrics or novel twists when you sing it true. Another nice version. Well done!

Murielle Mathieu does everything well and this is very nice version of White Christmas. “Christmas in Killarney” is an Irish-American Christmas song written by John Redmond, James Cavanaugh, and Frank Weldon, copyright 1950. There are several excellent versions, but this is my favorite by Dennis Day. I listened to many different versions of this wonderful …

For Rose Never take my sunshine away … Someone to watch over me … – The Doctor / Robert Picardo  

“The West was a place where the improbable happened every day.” – Louis L’Amour I’ve always contended that most Movie Stars want to be in a Western at some point in their career. But for many – especially European Actors – such a dream seemed far fetched. Impossible. THEN… in the mid 60’s an incredible …

The lyrics to Farnon’s theme were surprisingly written by British Carry On star Jim Dale and while being rather ‘Tin Pan Alley’ they hopefully don’t detract from Farnon’s excellent score. Sean Connery made one Western: Shalako (1968) Adapted from the novel by the great Western writer Louis L’Amour, Shalako was part of the Spaghetti Western …

I haven’t posted much lately. I have indeed been working on a couple of projects that just won’t come together to my satisfaction. (I always am). And because I don’t like to throw something up on the board I’ve holding them back. One project is called Sir Sean Connery / Cowboy. Sean did make ONE …

The Ark / Gerry RaffertySee!? things could be worse.
