Rustlers' Rhapsody (1985)



At last! Pax and Michael discuss one of the greatest Westerns of all time. Or at least, certainly one of our very favorites. Grab your feather cape and gather 'round the campfire as we talk about 1985's Rustlers' Rhapsody, the comedy classic starring Tom Berenger, GW Bailey, Marilu Henner, Sela Ward, Andy Griffith, and Carson from Downton Abbey.

Also up for discussion are the comic book series Six-Gun Gorilla and Trailblazer, Gary Cooper in 1929's The Virginian, Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson's Shanghai Noon and Shanghai Knights, and the pulp magazine adventures of SeƱorita Scorpion. We also give quick shout-outs to The Sixth Gun, the role-playing game Deadlands (which Michael can't remember the name of), and the idea of Western comedies in general.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962)



In this episode, Michael and Pax watched the John Ford classic The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance starring Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne, Lee Marvin, Vera Miles, Lee Van Cleef, and Woody Strode. Before we talk about the movie we mention other things we're doing like reading the comics Galveston, Manifest Destiny, and Kid Colt Outlaw, the novel The Last Mountain Man by William W Johnstone, and watching the movie The Big Trail starring a young John Wayne.
