    They didn't have the scene I wanted but this is probably my favorite western. Gregory Peck, Charlton Heston, and the rest of the cast were good, but Burl Ives stole most of the scenes he was in. I guess that's why he won the Oscar for his performance.

    IMO this set the standard for western gunfight. From the dog slinking out to Jack Palances slow walk to face Shane - perfect. Doc Holliday (Val Kilmer) vs Johnny Ringo at the end of Tombstone ranks close behind. JR "I was just fooling about" - DH "I wasn't"

    Chuck Connors played a memorable weasel in this one. Atypical role for him.

    John Ford's Calvary Trilogy are three of my favorite Westerns.

    Hombre, one of my favorite westerns with one of my favorite actors. The follow-up where the same guy is part of the gang that holds up the stagecoach and takes all their water is not on YouTube.



    Here's the scene. Lamar Dean is the guy Newman smacked in the mouth with the rifle butt; Russell is Newman.

    Lamar Dean: [Russell has climbed to the top of the stage] What are you doin' up there?
    John Russell: Gettin' my things.
    Lamar Dean: You figurin' on going some place?
    John Russell: Why stay here?
    Lamar Dean: Just how far do you thin you're gonna get?
    John Russell: That's to find out.
    Lamar Dean: [takes one waterbag] Now how far did you say you were gonna get?
    Henry Mendez: Leave us some water!
    Lamar Dean: [shoots the remaining waterbag] Now how far?
    John Russell: Oh about as far as Delgado's.
    Lamar Dean: [stops, turns and looks back] What does that mean?
    John Russell: Maybe if we all get thirsty we'll go to Delgado's and get some "mezcal."

    Dean suddenly recognizes who he is and Newman pulls his rifle from under his bedding roll on top of the stage and shoots him right between the eyes. Classic!

    Always loved this shootout for one reason...lol....at around 1:35 in the clip, John Wayne is shot through the shoulder and the bullet passes through and shatters the mirror behind him.

    I know this seems like nothing today, but in 1976...this kinda realism was really just creeping into movies and as a 13 year old boy watching the film, that moment has always stuck with me.

    Love John Wayne.
