Some Cool Silent Westerns

In Cowboys, Silent films I like on January 31, 2010 at 4:17 am

Martyrs of the Alamo (1915) – wildly historically inaccurate, this DW Griffith/CB DeMille collaboration kicks ass.

Iron Horse (1924) – proving that John Wayne, Walter Brennan and company were all living in John Ford’s head long before he met them.

Hell’s Hinges (1915) – my favorite Clint Eastwood movie!  When the townspeople murder the preacher, William S. Hart burns down the whole fucking town.

Wild and Wooly – (1917) – high concept western comedy starring the agile Douglas Fairbanks.

King of the Wild Horses (1924) – cool minimalist horse drama (literally) starring Rex the Wonder Horse and from a story by Hal Roach!
