I was wonderin' and holdin' onto a few just in case.

Django Kill... If You Live, Shoot! (1967)
Face to Face (1967)
The Last Posse (1953)
The River's Edge (1957)
Way of the Gaucho (1952)

I also have Don't Fence Me In and re-watches of Dakota and Along Came Jones from 1945, which I will probably post in the Discovery thread.

Wow! I'm having Déjà vu!

Or out West we say, "I reckon I've been hereabouts before."

Thanks for the tip of the hat, KOL!

Corndog can pull off a Thread Triple Play if he watches Destry Rides Again.

How do you say congratulations in Western?

Only about four 1945 Westerns have enough ratings on Letterboxd for the website to give you the average. Of those there is one with Errol Flynn and another with Gary Cooper. There is also a non-averaged one with John Wayne. I would like to double thread a movie, but I don't know that I trust any of these with two hours of my time.

A few possibilities:
3:10 to Yuma (both versions)
Stagecoach
Bone Tomahawk

What would be the third?



Anyway, here is what is on deck in my own marathon. I will try to focus heavily on Westerns this month to participate here...

Union Pacific (Cecil B. DeMille, 1939)
Destry Rides Again (George Marshall, 1939)
Northwest Passage (King Vidor, 1940)
Virginia City (Michael Curtiz, 1940)
The Return of Frank James (Fritz Lang, 1940)
The Westerner (William Wyler, 1940)
Santa Fe Trail (Michael Curtiz, 1940)
Trail of the Vigilantes (Allan Dwan, 1940)
Arizona (Wesley Ruggles, 1940)
Western Union (Fritz Lang, 1941)
They Died with Their Boots On (Raoul Walsh, 1941)
The Spoilers (Ray Enright, 1942)
The Outlaw (Howard Hughes & Howard Hawkes, 1943)
The Ox-Bow Incident (William A. Wellman, 1943)
A Lady Takes a Chance (William A. Seiter, 1943)

For the record, here are the 1945 films on my list (not that I will get that far this month, but for those participating in Retrospots):
Along Came Jones (Stuart Heisler)
Don't Fence Me In (John English)
