The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1947)

Last episode's The Walking Hills was accidentally a contemporary Western, so Pax leans into that with a similar pick. He and Michael dig into John Huston's The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, starring Humphrey Bogart, Tim Holt, Walter Huston, and Bruce Bennett.

Also: Michael watches Val Kilmer's son in Dead Man's Hand (2023) and Pax reads the first appearance of Marvel's Western Ghost Rider in Tim Holt #11.

The Walking Hills (1949)

Michael accidentally pulls a fast one and makes Pax watch a non-historical Western, John Sturges' The Walking Hills. It stars Randolph Scott and Ella Raines as two members of a party that enters the desert dunes looking for a lost wagon train and (according to legend) the gold that it was carrying.

But even though the movie takes place in the 1940s, the comic Pax read does not. It's the Sixth Gun mini-series Shadow Roads.
