In 1892, a group of mostly black infantrymen, betrayed by their white commander, Colonel Graham, desert the Spanish-American War.
With Graham hot on their trail, Jessie Lee leads the men to his hometown, Freemanville, only to find it's also besieged by war - a racist war!
Lee's attempts to bring justice and freedom to his people make for a brilliant Western that's short on words and long on killer entertainment! :
Arriving in Australia with nothing more than a saddle and his prized six-foot Sharps rifle, American sharpshooter Matthew Quigley thinks he's been hired to kill off wild dogs. But when he realises, instead, that his mission is murder - to "eliminate" the Aborigines from a wealthy cattle baron's land - Quigley refuses and quickly turns from hunter to hunted.
Forced to wage a savage war against his former employer, Quigley proves that no one gets the best of a steely-eyed American gunfighter - no one, that is, except the mysterious beauty who rides by his side and captures his heart.
A small Mexican village, terrorised by the cutthroat Calvera (Eli Wallach) and his bandits, hire a team of seven mercenaries to expel the vile interloper. The seven are led by Chris (Yul Brynner), and they set about the job of training the terrified townfolk in the art of killing before meting out their own brand of justice. Director John Sturges' re-make of Akira Kurosawa's 'The Seven Samurai' cemented star-like qualities on most of its cast, including James Coburn, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and Robert Vaughn.
When sea-captain Jim McKay (Gregory Peck) forgoes a life on the ocean waves and travels west to claim his bride Patricia Terrill (Carroll Baker), he finds more trouble than he bargained for. The Terrill clan are embroiled in a bitter feud over water rights with a rival family headed by Rufus Hannassey (Burl Ives).

They riddled him with bullets. They strung him up, left him to die. But they made two fatal mistakes: they hanged the wrong man... and they didn't finish the job.
In his first American-made western, Clint Eastwood indelibly carves his niche as the quintessential tough guy - cool-headed, iron-willed and unrelenting in the pursuit of change.
Oklahoma, 1873. Jed Cooper, mistaken for a rustler and killer, is lynched on the spot by crooked lawman Captain Wilson and a rampaging band. Wilson and his gang flee the scene, but there's one very important detail they've overlooked: Cooper is still alive!
Out for justice - and vengeance - Cooper takes on the job of deputy marshal... and, one by one, down the nine men who "done him wrong."
Retired marshal matt dillon tries, with his ex-lover's suitor, to free his daughter from an apache.
When hardened trail boss Tom Reece (Glenn Ford) loses all of his money in a poker game, hotel clerk Frank Harris (Jack Lemmon) offers a $3,800 loan in exchange for a piece of Reece's cattle business. As a result, Frank decides to leave his humdrum desk job and go on a cattle drive from Chicago to the Rio Grande, encountering such events as an Indian ambush and a stampede along the way. This beautifully panoramic Delmer Daves western is based on true events from the life of Frank Harris.
Regarded by many as the best Western ever made, STAGECOACH shot John Wayne to stardom and elevated the prestige of a genre that had hitherto been considered a B-movie province. With rumors in the air of a possible Apache attack, a motley group of travelers in a small New Mexico town board the Overland Stage bound for Lordsburg. Among them are the pregnant Lucy Mallory (Louise Platt); timid liquor salesman Peacock (Donald Meek); Hatfield, an aloof gambler (John Carradine); Gatewood (Berton Churchill), a pompous, embezzling banker; and two who have been exiled from town, alcoholic Doc Boone (Thomas Mitchell) and Dallas (Clair Trevor), a lady of the evening. Along the trail, they pick up the Ringo Kid (John Wayne), an outlaw who's escaped from prison to take revenge on the Plummer brothers for destroying his family and framing him for murder. As their journey progresses, the hypocrisy of the supposedly respectable passengers becomes clear, and it's the tainted outsiders who display courage and humanity. Described by Orson Welles, who watched the film innumerable times before making CITIZEN KANE, as his cinematic textbook, STAGECOACH is superbly made in every respect, layering humor and sharp characterization into an exciting plot that includes a spectacularly photographed chase in Monument Valley.
Western directed by Allan Dwan and starring Barbara Stanwyck, Gene Evans and Ronald Reagan. Sierra Nevada Jones (Stanwyck) is the daughter of a rancher. While moving their herd to a new location, Sierra's father is murdered by a cattle baron who is out to get his hands on their land. Sierra fights back however and seeks to convince Farrell (Reagan), one of the cattle baron's hired guns, to abandon him and help her avenge her father.
Classic spaghetti western starring Burt Reynolds. After destroying an Indian village, a group of outlaws led by Duncan (Aldo Sambrell) arrives in the town of Esperanza, and is hired by a crooked doctor to carry out a train robbery. But the sole survivor from the Indian village, a renegade Navajo named Joe (Reynolds), foils the plan by relocating the money. An irate Duncan holds an innocent Indian girl hostage until Joe surrenders. The brave citizens of Esperanza, under siege by the bandits, risk their lives to free Joe, who is their only hope of surviving.
Stacy Keach and Faye Dunaway star in this western depicting the legendary gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Doc Holliday (Keach) travels with Kate Elder (Dunaway), whose services he won in a poker game, to the town of Tombstone in Cochise County to visit his old friend Wyatt Earp (Harris Yulin). Upon arrival, they find the election campaign in full swing with Sheriff Wyatt standing as a candidate. But the powerful gang of cowboys in the Clanton family strongly object to his bid and the two warring factions decide to meet at the O.K. Corral to settle their differences in a shoot-out to the death.
When con men Zack Thomas (Frank Sinatra) and Joe Jarrett (Dean Martin) team up to open a gambling den, they quickly realize that business in the wild West isn't so easy. Both miscreant banker Harvey Burden (Victor Buono) and loose-cannon gunman Matson (Charles Bronson) are out to stifle Zack and Joe's moneymaking schemes. Luckily, the grifters still find plenty of time to romance a couple of voluptuous frontier babes (Anita Ekberg and Ursula Andress). Rat Packers Sinatra and Martin fuel this comedic Western with their genuine, inimitable chemistry, and the pleasingly skewed supporting cast--including the staggering beauties Ekberg and Andress, the Three Stooges, and Yaphet Kotto in an uncredited cameo that marked his film debut--follows their roisterous lead. Director Robert Aldrich, fresh off the critical and popular success of his caustic psycho-thriller WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE?, uses a much lighter touch in 4 FOR TEXAS to create an enjoyable, star-studded ride through the old West.
John mason (christian slater) arrives into town in the middle of his father's store being robbed. After his father is fatally shot by one of the gunman, he vows to avenge his death.
After his cowhands desert him for a nearby gold rush, aging, leather-tough rancher Will Anderson resorts to hiring 11 schoolboys to help him on a 400-mile cattle run.
Setting off with the boys and an eloquent but equally tough black cook, Anderson must get his cattle to their destination while contending with the wilderness and a psychotic, vengeful ex-con who is out to get him.
Triple bill of classic westerns. 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid' (1969) stars Paul Newman and Robert Redford as Butch and Sundance, a pair of outlaws finding it increasingly difficult to make a living in the Wild West. With big business constantly extending its influence, and the law following hot on its heels, the everyday business of robbing banks and trains is becoming more and more of a strain. Butch and Sundance decide to cut their losses and head for a new life in Bolivia with their friend, Etta Place (Katharine Ross). However, on reaching their destination, things, if anything, seem worse - they now have to rob banks in which people only speak Spanish. 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly' (1966), Sergio Leone's classic spaghetti western, is the final part of the 'Dollars' trilogy that brought Clint Eastwood to Hollywood's attention. During the American Civil War, the paths of three loners, Joe (Eastwood), Tuco (Eli Wallach) and Setenza (Lee Van Cleef), cross as they search for the grave of Bill Carson, said to be home to a hidden fortune. As the war intensifies, however, the treasure seekers find themselves drawn into a battle that dwarfs their own mercenary pursuits. 'The Magnificent Seven' (1960), a re-make of Akira Kurosawa's 'Seven Samurai' (1954), features performances from Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Yul Brynner and Robert Vaughn. A small Mexican village, terrorised by the cutthroat Calvera (Wallach) and his bandits, comes together to hire a team of seven mercenaries to expel the vile interloper. The seven, led by Chris (Brynner), set about the job of training the terrified townfolk in the art of killing before preparing to mete out their own brand of justice.
