      Big Duke, that was a GREAT question!! I don't think I have ever thought about something like that.

      Whenever a question like that comes up, I am always confident that SOMEbody here will know the answer, and Arthur came through with flying colors!

      Arthur, way to go, with that interesting answer! I wouldn't have thought Rio Bravo would have been one of the films just off the top of my head - that answer surprised me the most.

      Hi

      There may be others. Rio Bravo was mostly set in the town people rode in like Ward Bond and Colarado but for the most part Duke worked between the Hotel and the Jail.

      Another question is can you class North to Alaska and How The West Was Won as westerns.

      I was going to say The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance thinking that he travelled around on a buckboard but I'm not certain.

      Regards

      There is the scene when he confronts James Stewart's character and brings him out to his ranch to teach him how to shoot, in this scene he is riding a horse.

      According to IMDb (not the final authority, of course, but a reasonable source), North to Alaska is listed as Comedy/Western under genre, and How the West Was Won was listed as Adventure/Drama/Romance/Western.

      But Robbie's recollection of at least one scene in each movie where Duke is on a horse now takes them out of the category of "horseless" although they are MOSTLY horseless!
