Greatest Classic Films: Western Adventures
Soured by civilization, a would-be mountain man braves his first wilderness winter, battling hostile elements and going eyeball to eyeball with a grizzly. Robert Redford and director Sydney Pollack teamed for the second of their six films together on this box-office hit shot entirely in Utah.
The Train Robbers
Civil War veterans John Wayne, Rod Taylor and Ben Johnson team up with a train robbers widow to recover a cool half-million in hidden gold. The widow (Ann-Margret), the kind who "sticks out in all the right places," wants to clear her husbands name. But the dead mans ex-partners just want the gold and will kill to get it.
The Wild Bunch
Director Sam Peckinpahs powerful tale of hangdog desperados bound by a code of honor rates as one of the all-time greatest Westerns. Watch William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Ryan and more great stars saddle up for the roles of a lifetime.
McCabe & Mrs. Miller
Presbyterian Church is a small mining town in the turn-of-the-century Pacific Northwest and a perfect place where a gambler (Warren Beatty) and a bordello madam (Julie Christie) can do business. Robert Altmans dazzlingly original wilderness saga stands the mythology of the Old West on its ear to become "a modern classic" (Pauline Kael).
