    Enjoyed your 100 westerns of all times but was a little dissapointed that there were not more John Wayne films included,especially "the Spoilers"(1942) and "War of the wildcats" formely "In old OLkahoma"1944.Who could ever forget the splendid performance by Albert Dekker and Binnie Barnes.Also you forgot 1947's "Ramrod" and 1948's "Four faces west" Shame on you.

    Sirs: There seems to be an awful lot of pleated pants type easterners on the esteemed "panel of experts". Makes for good discussion but not too much credibility on which end of a horse to bridle up. An even larger stretch is their extensive knowlege base on firearms and their usage. How about a few genuine cowboys ……..real boots on the ground………
