My father would have had a fit if he ever caught me listening to him on the radio. And that was true of all of them. He loved the Ink Spots until he saw their photo. He meant well.

My dad was the same way, only I was too old to get "shut down" (I was about 26!)  Instead, he'd say, "How can you listen to that crap?"   Grin Grin

This is the hardest part for me in aging.  All of the famous people I grew up with are dying.  It reminds me that I am getting old.


I'm also aware of that. The last time I saw the movie Rio Bravo, I realized I was older than Walter Brennan when he starred in that movie (released in 1959).

I saw that movie on it's first run back in 1959, and could have never conceived the idea that one day I would be older than he was then! Further, the other actors in Rio Bravo, including Ricky Nelson, Dean Martin, John Wayne, Ward Bond, John Russell, Claude Akins, Myron Healey, and almost all the others, except for Angie Dickinson are dead.

It's also painful to watch what they call "westerns" today, because they never compare to those made by John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Clint Walker, etc.,
Here's an interesting site that has collected a lot of the  old western actors:

I went to that website, then went to the home page where they had a link to their opinion of the top 20 westerns of all times. Of course, I realize the lists is subjective, and depends (alot) of when one grew up and the movies that were out at the time.

The site rated The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly as number one. While I really liked this movie (it is one of my all-time favorites), I don't think it fits in the typical western genre, since it also incorporated the civil war. I certainly don't compare the GBU to say, High Noon, The Searchers, Winchester '73, etc.

But, that being said, the first time I saw GBU (in 1968), I was figuratively blown away by it. It was totally different than any western I grew up watching. The music score, the sound of the gun ricochets, the looks of the characters, the type of dialog, etc. (and Eli Wallach actually urinated in it!) In fact, I liked all three of the Sergio Leone's trilogies (Fistful of Dollars; For a Few Dollars More; GBU -- and also Once Upon a Time in The West).

I have no interest in today's made westerns, except for the ones Clint Eastwood made/was in.
