Gunfight At The O.K Corral (1957): Acclaimed actors Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas team up to rid Tombstone, Arizona of the murderous Clanton gang in this all-star, action-packed classic. When lawman Wyatt Earp (Lancaster) and gunfighter "Doc" Holiday (Douglas) ride into town, they find themselves pitted against one of the biggest foes ever encountered, in the form of Ike Clanton (Lyle Bettger) and his ruthless gang. It isn't long before the confrontation explodes into a survival-at-all-costs battle, with Rhonda Fleming, Jo Van Fleet, John Ireland Dennis Hopper, Deforest Kelley, Martin Milner and Lee Van Cleef among those swept into the drama and excitement of one of the Wild West's most legendary events!
Hud (1963): Paul Newman is Hud, a man at odds with his father, tradition and himself. Hud's only interests are fighting, drinking, hot-rodding his Cadillac and womanising. Melvyn Douglas is the father, an old-line cattle rancher, and Patricia Neal is the understanding and appealing housekeeper. Academy Awards went to Patricia Neal, Melvyn Douglas and James Wong Howe's brilliant cinematography.
Once Upon A Time In The West (1968): Sergio Leone's monumental epic 'Once Upon A Time In The West' ranks among the five or six all-time Western masterpieces. The picture itself is as big as its Monument Valley locations, as grand as its fine, distinguished cast. Henry Fonda plays the blackest character of his long career. He's Frank, the ruthless, murderous psychopath who suffers conscience pangs after annihilating an entire family. Jason Robards is the half-breed falsely accused of the terrible slaughter. Charles Bronson plays the harmonica playing man who remembers how his brother was savagely tortured.
Brilliantly directed by Leone and accompanied by one of Ennio Morriconne's greatest scores, this glorious picture helped re-establish the Western's significance. Watch out for that lengthy opening titles sequence...
