  1. I’m sorry… but The Outlaw Josey Wales? No gay, no way. And didn’t Clint spend more time with the Indian Chief Dan George than the kid. Try as I may, I can’t see any man-love hanky panky going on under the blanket there.
    Also…I think your bro missed easily the gayest western/ character ever: BLAZING SADDLES with the town mayor Hedley Lamarr played by the effervescent Harvey Korman…
    Hedley Lamarr: My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
    Taggart: God darnit Mr. Lamarr, you use your tongue prettier than a twenty dollar whore.

  2. I guess Tod was being tongue in cheek, but I would have also added ‘Rio Bravo’ to that list. Always had my doubts about Walter Brennan’s portrayal of Stumpy….
    And had it been a true list, I think ‘Little Big Man’ would have to be added in as well.

  3. _Having bought a DVD multi-pack of 16 old cowboy films last year, via Walmart, 1932’s Man from Hell’s Edges with Bob Steele was a definite (comedy purposes) surprise.
    _Quite a few of those old flicks seem to always have a sidekick character “afraid of marrying”.
