The good old days!

Loved this show as a kid.  Certainly, this is one of the most memorable sequences in popular TV.

    I don’t remember this particular one, but the Westerns as a genre, I loved them ALL! Not the later anti-hero of the 70s – I didn’t watch that type of films any more – but the real hero, quickest with pistols, with courage and honour, the people from Europe conquering the wilderness, the well distinct roles of the men and the women – that I loved – in their fight for survival, where the women were educators of the rough men as for manners, were cooking and taking care of house & kids, while the men hunted, fought, defended the damsels in distress & the family & the country – all that stuff, all that clear simple tough morality totally delighted me.

John Wayne at his best, and I don’t consider myself a fan of his. Amazing cinematography, and themes of violence, racism, imperialism, etc. but in a “real” western!
