Re: Top 10 Westerns With Less Than 1000 Votes

The Proud Rebel (1958) (My second favorite Alan Ladd western)
The Quiet Gun (1957) (only 126 votes, a real travesty for this gem)
The Lonely Man (1957) (Jack Palance in perhaps his best role ever)
The Night of the Grizzly (1966) (This one is just fun all around, Clint Walker, Leo Gordon & Jack Elam, 'nuff said)
The Proud Ones (1956) (Robert Ryan shines in this one)
Only The Valiant (1951) (Mr. Peck, Ward Bond, Neville Brand, what more could you want?)
Gun Fury (1953) (Rock & Donna Reed make a great couple)
Branded (1953) (Third favorite Alan Ladd western)
The Tomahawk Trail (1957) (just recently discovered this gem)
The Lone Hand (1953) (Joel McCrea works against type and pulls it off as only he can)


In reality, this list could probably go for a few dozen more.

Re: Top 10 Westerns With Less Than 1000 Votes


10. Fort Massacre (1958, Joseph M. Newman)


Well worth seeing (it was the sole output of a doomed production company, I seem to remember) as an example of a 'travelling company' plot, with all the advantages of 50's mise en scene and a rich supporting cast. But Joel McCrea, imho, was mis-cast, although he makes a very good stab at playing a character who is hard to like. Its somewhat bitter, downbeat tone anticipates some of the concerns of the Western in the coming decade.
