William Wyler (Big Country) was quoted as saying "Ride Beyond Vengeances" has one of the greatest fight scenes he ever saw on the screen. This bar room brawl had so many great reviews!

It was excellent and so is this movie.

Catch ya' later!

Renewed Fan:212 wrote:Cowgirl - A Big Hand for The Little Lady is not your typical western - the entire plot revolves around a high stakes poker game in the back room of a saloon - but it has a zinger of an ending.

Army Wife:229 wrote:Hi Everyone.  I watched "DOC" on the Western Channel last night
It appears the writer, Pete Hamil, played fast and loose with
Doc's biography, but the character was portrayed as a very
complex man.  I admired Doc, but I'm sure glad I didn't live
in Tombstone in those times.  What a scary town!

You bet, Army Wife. I won't watch Jane Fonda either. I don't know why people who make a living reading the words written by others, feel that they are qualified to use their place in front of the cameras and microphones to push their views.  Once they more or less insult me, or my views, or the people whom I support, I have no more used for them and simply can't enjoy their work. I am aware of some performers whose views are very different than mine, but they haven't been offensive or obnoxious about them so I can still enjoy their work.

A good western has to have some fight scenes, there's no getting around that.  An underrated movie I mentioned, "Showdown at Fury", has a humdinger of a fight scene. It starts out with one big guy goading a smaller guy - eventually spitting a whiskey cork into his face and that was the final straw.

Yes I have seen this.  It was an okay movie, but I did really enjoy John Anderson in this.

I really like Lee Remick, but I like her better in non-westerns.  (The Omen for one!)  halloween_scarey  vampire  awesome_bye  smiley_mummy Great actress!

I love this movie.
I try to watch it every time it's on.
I watch it mostly for John Anderson, he's one of my favorite actors.
He is very funny in this.
