You have to watch the movie to really get what's into the final showdown.



Very dark and violent movie. Viewer beware. It has some history.

No doubt for me, and I love WESTERNS beyond any other film type. The ending, or the lead up to the ending of THE WILD BUNCH has to be it for me. The scene opens in a Mexican comfort house, Bill Holden rouses the troops, and the four remaining members stroll off into the final shootout, ending with several minutes of mayhem only Sam Peckinpah could orchestrate so well. Someday, if I lean how to edit video, I may use scenes from this film and put "Let The Bodies Hit The Floor" as the score, just for something to play when I can't sleep.  ;)



If you've not seen the entire film, I won't spoil the ending, lets just say that poorer performance of the 7.65×53mm Mauser compared to the 30-06 is echoed here, even if only accidentally.

Second runner up is a tie.  Open Range final shootout and that amazing speech Eastwood gives as William Munny, just before he sets things right. I suppose I can't comment further (due to forum rules) as to why I think Little Bill got his just deserts, but if you knew me, you'd understand.



To me, scene mood is just as critical as is the action, everything has to balance and fit the personalities involved or just does not work.  Bronson in Once Upon a Time in the West, head shaking, "You brought two too many".  John Wayne, "Fill Your Hands You Son...." in True Grit. J.B. Books disposing of the town "bullies" in The Shootist while taking his doctors advice at the same time; that was how John Wayne needed to say goodbye to his fans.

Yeah, I love westerns, and all of them have their moments. I even preferred the period weapons, that Greener that Jacob McCandles uses inside the shower against his captor, Boss uses through the wall in Open Range, and Wyatt Earp stopping the riot in the film by the same name. All display my favorite arm for close up problems.  I think a double barrel 12 ga says "LEAVE" in many different languages.

Oh oh, what did I miss?  If mine cross the line Whose Yer, pull the pin, I'll understand. I think the only rough language is Eastwood's description of Greely's Bar though???

Nothing beats the quick draw scene with Jimmy Stewart against his brother in Winchester 73. Neither of them are wearing guns due to the town rules and they both grab for pistols at the sight of each other. Walter Brennan plays the role of sheriff Wyatt Earp.

Another obscure western film moment...


My favorite part of that one is at 1:02 when the "Bad Guy" tries reaching for Nobody's  gun and he catches his hand , shakes it, and says "Howdy-do".
It's quick... but stinkin funny.

What "show down" gives you goose bumps?
The true boldness, even if only Holly Wood motion pictures makes me hold my breath, and glues my eyes to the screen without a blink.
I am most fond of Audie Murphy and Randolph Scott.

But this one from El Dorado takes the cake for me.
