    I liked Fonda in Tin Star, so I have no problem with that, but Man of the West would have been much better with Stewart. Coop was great and did the best he could, but he was just too old for the character. The script should have been rewritten to compensate for that, but wasn't. Still a good western, but shoulda been better.

    I'll take a worst Stewart western over most other "good" westerns. I also enjoyed The Unforgiven, and thought Murphy gave one of his top performances, if not THE top performance of his career. As for heights, those are easily disguised by camera angles and such. Duke and Clift had a believable fight in Red River inspite of their height differences.
