   Hey WelshBob, if that book was anything like Empire of the Summer Moon, I think I know what you mean. Atrocities on both sides and the PC crowd would scream that would be heard 'round the world.

   I forgot about them. True Grit was good, but personally I prefer John Wayne's, and Aliens and Cowboys was ok but not my idea of a serious western. Now Open Range was a fantastic movie!

   OMG! yes I agree...last night late I suffered through a terrible thing made to somewhat resemble and listed as a "Western" filmed in 1994's "Bad Girls"
Holy cow plot/story line was a poor site for my eyes...
except for the camera staff/lighting crew/managers saw to it to take some decently good natural terrain shots and overall good lighting; so panoramic views of oranges, reds, colors, backrounds, props, and camera shoot angles were excellent
Backround was OK filmed at Red Hills ranch Sonora CA, a place I had heard of called the Alamo Ranch sits in the middle of the 18,000 acre Happy Shahan HV Ranch 7 miles n. of Brackettville on Hwy 674 located on US HWY 90, 120 miles W.of San Antonio. They also filmed scenes at Del Rio TX is a short 30 miles west of Alamo Village with Uvalde only 40 miles east. And other scenes filmed at Sierra Railroad in Jamestown California

   Down here I'd even be happy to see a western on the television. Our last was a repeat of Comanche Moon twelve months ago

I usually end up buying the DVDs and then find the film tucked away at 1.00a.m. or some stupid time.

Into the West, The Sacketts, Broken Trail and John Adams have not yet reached here.

   Hey Les,
Did you ever see "Quigley Down Under"? I loved that movie.

   Yep some time ago. But as I said in another post regarding Tracker I didn't see Tracker or Quigley as western .

I have just been reviewing it in IMDB as I am looking at more purchases.

Another later western is Meeks Cutoff that I have just bought through Amazon so I hope it's good. Reviews seem okay.

   I would love to see a good film based on the expedition of Lewis and Clark, especially as the 200th anniversary of that event is coming up in a few years. I cannot think of actors I'd like to see in the starring roles - I suspect that good looking, well-groomed heartthrobs might be chosen if such a film were made. I'd still watch it, even so.

   I'm with you there Chris, Lewis and Clark would be a great epic, especially as the Great Falls etc can easily be computerised and made to look as was.

I mentioned in another post that the Hugh Glass or Kit Carson stories would be great as movies. I just finished reading The story of Quana Parker and the history of the Comanche nation. Fascinating stuff but any film would surely upset many people if shown accurately.

   I read this just before shifting.

The cross cultural conflict that Quanah suffered was most interesting. I had read bits of it before but this really covered it well.

   Derek, you and Bob are so right. There were so many fouls on both sides that, if the truth WERE known, or I should say 'well known' because it is known REALLY, people just don't REALLY realise the depth of the kind of horrendous killing that went on, people would be upset, and that's putting it mildly, at both sides. But, after all, it was war. And war is truly hell.

   The expedition, 1804-06, was a great boon for the U.S.!

   Has anyone seen BLACKTHORN with Sam Sheppard as Butch Cassidy?

IMDB has conflicting reviews but it is rating 6.6

Were John Agar and Shirley Temple married at that point?
