As The Outlaw Josey Wales, two-time Academy Award winner Clint Eastwood is ideally cast as a hard hitting, fast-drawing loner, recalling his "Man with No Name" from his European Westerns. But unlike that other mythic outlaw, Josey Wales has a name - and a heart.
After avenging his family's brutal murder, Wales is on the run, pursued by a pack of killers. He travels alone, but a ragtag group of outcasts (including Sondra Locke and Chief Dan George) is drawn to him - and Wales can't leave his motley surrogate family unprotected. Eastwood's skills before and behind the camera connected with audiences for its humour and tenderness as well as its hair-trigger action.
Pike Bishop is the leader of a small clan of outlaws confronting the closing American frontier. The year is 1913, and the prairie crew, disguised as US soldiers, ride into a dusty Texas town and rob the railway office. A bloodbath ensues with innocent people caught in the crossfire. The gang leaves town but the railroad boss' hired gunmen pursue them. Escaping to Mexico, the posse joins forces with the merciless anti-revolutionary dictator Mapache, agreeing to hijack a US ammunitions train. When Mapache double-crosses them and tortures youngest group member Angel upon discovering he's a revolutionary, the gang is caught between bounty hunters and Mapache's troops.
Returning home after the Civil War, young guns Jesse James and Cole Younger discover the new enemy - corrupt Rock Northern Railroad.
Soon Jesse, Cole and their rough-and-ready band of outlaw ranchers ride to the rescue of the downtrodden folks of Liberty, Missouri in a thrilling all out civil war battle against the railroad barons.
Director Les Mayfield brings you American Outlaws, the all action comedy Western packed with exciting bank robberies, high speed train chases and lashings of gunplay.
Producer-director Howard Hawks teams up with legendary stars for this drama set in postCivil War Texas, the second in the trilogy the director's easy going westerns starring John Wayne, which also included Rio Bravo and Rio Lobo. Robert Mitchum plays the alcoholic sheriff who fights greedy cattlemen and empire builders as he tries almost single-handedly to tame the West. Wayne is Mitchum's old-friend-turned-gun-fighter who comes to town, while James Caan offers an eccentric and likeable performance as a youthful gunslinger. With broad strokes of humour, Hawks works a familiar terrain with the western he-men, who manage to help Mitchum rid the town of it's unsavoury characters.
Akira Kurosawa's rousing Seven Samurai was a natural for an American remake--after all, the codes and conventions of ancient Japan and the Wild West (at least the mythical movie West) are not so very far apart. Thus The Magnificent Seven effortlessly turns samurai into cowboys (the same trick worked more than once: Kurosawa's Yojimbo became Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars). The beleaguered denizens of a Mexican village, weary of attacks by banditos, hire seven gunslingers to repel the invaders once and for all. The gunmen are cool and capable, with most of the actors playing them just on the cusp of '60s stardom: Steve McQueen, James Coburn, Charles Bronson, Robert Vaughn. The man who brings these warriors together is Yul Brynner, the baddest bald man in the West. There's nothing especially stylish about the approach of veteran director John Sturges (The Great Escape), but the storytelling is clear and strong, and the charisma of the young guns fairly flies off the screen
Classic comedy western starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford as Butch and Sundance, two outlaws who are 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, so much so that Butch and Sundance eventually decide to cut their losses and, accompanied by their friend Etta Place (Katharine Ross), head for a new life in Bolivia. However, when they reach their destination, it seems their problems are only beginning, especially when they discover they now have to rob banks speaking Spanish. The film won several Oscars, including Best Song (for 'Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head'), Best Cinematography and Best Screenplay.
A gang of ruthless outlaws, a pair of larger-than-life heroes, a timeless tale of good versus evil. Blended together, the result is a sprawling, epic adventure.
When lawman Wyatt Earp and gunfighter John "Doc" Holliday ride into town, they find themselves pitted against one of the biggest foes ever encountered, in the form of Ike Clanton and his ruthless gang.
It isn't long before the confrontation explodes into a survival-at-all-costs battle.
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.
Sergio Leone's classic spaghetti western forms the final part of the 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, home to a hidden fortune. As the war intensifies, the treasure seekers become drawn into a battle that dwarfs their own mercenary pursuits.

All four 'Magnificent Seven' films. The series begins with 'The Magnificent Seven' (1960). 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. The first sequel, 'The Return of the Magnificent Seven' (1966), only has Yul Brunner from the original all-star cast. Chris Adams (Brynner) is sent for to help a Mexican village get rid of a tyrannical rancher (Emilio Fernandez) who is bullying the villagers into building a church as a memorial for his son. Adams rounds up the usual suspects (another six to make up the magic number) from prison and other places of ill-repute and the new Seven head for the Mexican border. 'Guns of the Magnificent Seven' (1969) sees George Kennedy take over the Yul Brynner role of Chris Adams, the only surviving member of the original Seven. Adams puts together another six bandits in order to help a group of Mexican rebels free their leader from a prison run by the ruthless Colonel Diego (Michael Ansara). Diego will go to any lengths to prevent the rebel leader from being freed but the Seven are also just as determined. Finally 'The Magnificent Seven Ride!' (1972) is set when the various heroes are all either too old to fight or languishing in jail. Chris Adams is newly married and trying to settle down with his wife but decides to help his buddy fight bandits after they kidnap his wife.
Seth MacFarlane directs, produces, co-writes and plays the role of the cowardly sheep farmer Albert in this hilarious Western.
After Albert backs out of a gunfight, his fickle girlfriend leaves him for another man. When a mysterious and beautiful woman rides into town, she helps him find his courage and they begin to fall in love.
But when her husband, a notorious outlaw, arrives seeking revenge, the farmer must put his newfound courage to the test.
A gang of beautiful women ride the dusty range slinging sixshooters in this rollicking western. The open frontier was the land of opportunity for many cowboys and landowners; for women, though, the West held only two choices: marriage or prostitution. But an outlaw, a widowed farmer, a loner horsewoman and a displaced Southern lady find themselves out of options when one of them faces the hangman--and they're forced to break out of tradition and carve their own justice out of manmade laws. A corrupt sheriff and a cunning thief stand between the quartet and their dreams of freedom--but they won't stand in the way for long.
Western drama directed by Sean McGinly and starring Austin Nichols and Patrick John Flueger. Sean (Flueger) and Tommy (Nichols) are brothers living and working in Texas. Sean is used to bailing out his brother, but this time Tommy gets himself into some trouble that neither of them are equipped to deal with. Thousands of dollars in debt to seriously dangerous people and with barely a dime to their names, Tommy does little to amend the situation. Sean must make a difficult decision: help out his brother in his hour of need or let him face the consequences alone?
Second of Sergio Leone and Eastwood's "Spaghetti Westerns" and "Dollar" trilogy (A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS being the first and THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY the last). The Man With No Name (Eastwood) teams up with a gunslinger (Van Cleef) in order to extract reward money from Volonte, a vicious bandit. There is little doubt to Eastwood's financial intentions in the hunt but Van Cleef seems to be driven by something a bit deeper. A series of flashbacks (which would become a Leone signature device) provides the background for Van Cleef's anger and desire for revenge. Morricone's score combined with Leone's trademark long and lingering shots bring the viewer ever closer to the human side of the Man With No Name.
Gritty Western revenge drama from director Shane Van Dyke. After witnessing the cold-blooded killing of her husband and two sons by the notorious outlaw Lee Horn (Geoff Meed) and his gang, frontier widow Selina Stevens (Sage Mears) enlists the help of famed bounty hunter Frank Allison (Barry Van Dyke) to teach her how to fire a six-shooter so that she can exact her own form of vengeance on the man who destroyed her life.
Quentin Tarantino directs this Academy Award-winning western starring Jamie Foxx as a freed slave who sets out to rescue his wife from a merciless plantation owner. Django (Foxx), a slave with a violent past, earns the favour of bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Cristoph Waltz) when he helps him kill a trio of infamous murderers. Schultz frees Django and begins training him as a fully-fledged bounty hunter. The pair enjoy further success tackling some of the American South's most troublesome criminals, but Schultz gradually becomes aware that Django has motivations beyond earning a reward - Django has been searching for his wife, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington). When the duo discover that she is enslaved to the ruthless Calvin Caddie (Leonardo DiCaprio) they begin hatching a plan for her rescue. However, with Caddie's employees numbering the vigilant Stephen (Samuel L. Jackson) and mindful bodyguard Butch (James Remar), it may well be the pair's biggest challenge yet. Christoph Waltz won the Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA for his supporting performance, while Tarantino won the Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA for his original screenplay.
Western starring Kevin Kline and Danny Glover. In the 1880s, various pioneers try to establish a future in the American West as four strangers shoot it out in the crooked town of Silverado.
Post-Civil War Western starring David Carradine. Former sharpshooter Will Drayton (Jim Hilton) has put his criminal past behind him and has since married and become a lawman. But when a gang of his ex comrades who have chosen a less honourable way of life appear he must team up with US Marshal Ian McHenry (Carradine) to put an end to the trouble they've brought upon the town.
