  • I have seen the movies Stewart made with Duke and a few others and I was just wondering if you guys could reccomend me a few other Westerns he was in. I really like him as an actor with his strange way of talking. Thanks, Irish Duke.

    Hi there,
    I've been watching them recently as I've just bought the James Stewart western box set, worth getting as its so cheap at the moment.
    I would say the best ones being, not in order:
    The man from Laramie
    The broken arrow
    The naked spur
    Bend in the river


    Basically the ones he made with Mann are all good. These should keep you busy for a while! :)

  • I WOULD SAY THAT "BROKEN ARROW" WAS MY FAVORITE BECAUSE AS 19 YEAR OLD KID JUST BEFORE I WENT INTO THE U,S. AIR FORCE, I WAS A EXTRA IN THE FILM THAT WAS DONE IN SEDONA, ARIZONA, AND I ALSO DID SOME STUNT WORK ! I GOT KILLED 7 TIMES IN THE FILM !!!
    :fear2:
    I ALSO LIKED "THE RARE BREED" WITH MAUREEN O'HARA AND JIMMY, AND THE HEREFORD BULL IN THE FILM CAME FROM RIGHT HERE AT
    THE "26 BAR RANCH" !!!

  • That's a great story!
    I watched broken arrow last week, still as good every time I watch it.
    I went to Sedona recently on my US road trip, lovely, lovely place.

  • Keith, he wasn't in Ride The High Country, that was Randolph Scott and Joel McRea. You might be thinking of The Far Country.


    Also, there's Two Rode Together.

  • I really liked him in the movie: The flight of the Phoenix! Great movie! Sorry, i know its not a western.

  • I remember a funny western movie Jimmy Stewart did. I think it was called The Cheyenne Social Club.
    It is the story of a cowboy who is very religios and inherits a whore house. When he is comming there, he thinks the "Social Club" is some kind of institution for old and homeless cowboys, but then he realizes, what he has got...
    I have never seen this movie on DVD and TV-stations seem to air it not too often. I watched it over 30 years ago, but I remember it was funny!

    Shenandoah was another great Jimmy Stewart Western: story of a father who is against war and has to search for his sons during the Civil War.
    Night Passage is a good one too: Jimmy Stewart and Audie Murphy as brothers, one a railroad engineer, the other one a train-robber. Jimmy is singin´"You can´t get far without a Railroad" in that movie!

    All these movies are available on DVD. The Cheyenne Social Club has Firecreek in a double set. I happen to have all three. It seems that I do have a lot of James Stewart movies in my collection. I figure that the double set is because it is a James Stewart and Henry Fonda movie.

  • I found another fine James Stewart Western in my collection today: Bandolero! A more tragic western movie in the end, but with funny elements too, starring James Stewart and Dean Martin riding with a gang of bank robbers.

    And You should watch Two Rode Together (this one was mentioned before). James Stewart plays a US Marshal and Richard Widmark is a cavalry officer. Both are searching for children robbed by the Comanches. - it is not The Searchers, but another great John Ford movie!

    That is one movie I'd like to see. It has not been released on DVD in the US. It is available on VHS but at $36, no way! I have not been able to catch it on TV either. I know it is available on DVD across the pond but says it is on Region 2 format.

    Just waiting to see it. Shirley Jones is also in this movie.

  • Ever since I saw the scene of Jimmy and Dick sitting by the River, (and Ford, camera, and all IN the river...I have wanted to see it. Jimmy was so funny as he can easily be, telling Dick, (on a soldier's pay), how he got a cut from every business in town. Hope it comes out soon! KPKEITH
