Wha
What was the show where John Wayne was beat to death? The actor in that was type cast from then on. I think it was the one with him driving cattle with the kids. Not sure.
"The Cowboys". The bad guy was Bruce Dern.

Where John Wayne died in a few war movies like "Sands of Iwo Jima", the only cowboy movies he died in was "The Cowboys" and "The Shootist"---and in that one, he got shot in the back after taking out the three bad guys.

It was the oddest of all John Wayne movies, "The Conqueror", where he played Genghis Khan, that actually killed him from cancer, and most of the others in the cast, from breathing radioactive dust as they were downwind of a nuclear test site.

There are so many movies worth watching compared to a lot of the tripe being made today.

3rd Man
Treasure of the Sierra Madre
The Searchers
Nosferatu
Twilight Zone Movie
Beau Geste
7th Seal
7 Samurai
7th Voyage of Sinbad (OK, all of the Sinbad movies)
The Longest Day
In Harm's Way

Did anyone notice how few of these movies we've all listed are NOT musicals or Rom-Coms?

Serendipity is a pretty good rom-com. Tainted by a recent Harvey Weinstein story.

I’ll watch pretty much anything with John Cusack. Grosse Pointe Blank is a favourite.

I’ll also watch anything with Paul Newman. Nobody’s Fool and Slap Shot, and recently I watched Absence of Malice (****).

In that case, I'd like to watch a couple of "Columbo" episodes.

I watched them. "A Stitch in Crime" (which was premiered in Spain in the evening of the day I was born), and another one which I recommend to you fellow musicians, "Swan Song". Though no Gretsch to be seen, Johnny Cash and his guitar are all over the place, and he happens to be one of the few murderers Columbo feels sympathy for and likes.

I asbolutely loved Idiocracy.

Could watch hours and hours of "Aw, my Balls!" ... the furniture is kinda handy, too ... not sure about Brawndo, all these electrolyte-loaden drinks I came to know so far tasted frighteningly artifical - meh, me no like...

Recently, I rewatched Short Cuts, which is one of those movies I bought on DVD because Tom Waits appears in them and can highly recommend it for anyone having three hours to kill. I was a bit disappointed in "The Book of Eli" ... my own belief or unbelief put aside - a blind guy traveling through a postapocalyptic wasteland formerly known as USA reciting the Bible that was lost in total in the war before sounds ... kinda promising, but it appeared to be just boring to me - maybe I missed something, but it just didn't deliver to me what the rough outlines made me expect. May get another try...

Full Metal Jacket always is a good choice, for several reasons this is a great movie.

Ironweed - too, a great movie! Again, Tom Waits drew me there, accompanied by Jack Nicholson, and - if the viewer allows the movie to - it's digging deep. In the misery of the miserable, and in the viewer's mind. May spark a thought or two...

Irina Palm is next on my list, likely this evening this will be watched.

Hope I didn't repeat myself here...

I just watched 1917 and Midway the new one. Both were pretty good. There is a ww1 movie I stumbled on but haven't decided to watch it yet. I'm in the mood for some silly stupid 60's70''s and 80's scifi fantasy stuff.

Sands of Iwo Jima is one of my favorites. I watched it a couple of times before boot camp and saw it at least three times in boot camp. I don't remember when but they would have it on when we were at certain stages of boot camp.
