    Idiots? Apparently you don't realize it's all about money and ownership, renewing the copyrights......... Same with songs, why do you think they get redone?

    Josey Wales was a fantasy western, well done but still a fantasy, Unforgiven is his best western and the most historically accurate.
    Wayne's most historically accurate films were Rio Grande and The Shootist, The Cowboys was fairly accurate also everything else was primarily Hollywood's version of the west.

    Yeah, sure, okay..........................chances of you kicking anyone's ass from USMB is about the same as that of the proverbial tissue paper dog catching the asbestos cat on a chase through Hell.

    And, since you don't know what pedant means, let me express my view of you another way, you cock smoking colon jousting pud pulling rump ranger.

    The original M-7 (1960) was about the last of the old Hollywood stuff. The plot was as common as a western plot can be (based on Japanese folklore) where the good guys rescue the downtrodden peasants but the star quality of McQueen, Brynner, Vaughn, Bronson, James Coburn Eli Wallach as his evil best was hard to beat. Favorite scene: When Coburn uncoils like a snake and hits the cowboy with a knife. They don't make stuff like that today except in digital cartoons. The remake was bland.
