Classic Westerns and not so classic Westerns from the likes of John Wayne and Tim McCoy online.

Two Fisted Law (1932)

This is from when John Wayne wasn’t a star yet. Tim McCoy was. Rancher Tim Clark borrows money from Bob Russell, who then rustles Clark’s cattle so he will be unable to repay the money.

Bud Spencer plays Hiram Coburn ; a drifter. Jack Palance plays Sunny ; a gunfighter who wants him to marry his sister. A little boy (Renato Cestie) and Jack Palances gun save him from hanging, but the boys uncle gets killed so Bud Spencer adopts the waif. I don’t want to give away too much on the plot, but the interaction between Palance and Bud Spencer is pretty funny.


Mohawk (1956)

White Comanche (1968)

Here William Shatner plays Johnny Moon, the good cowboy. He also plays Notah, his evil Comanche half-brother, who eats peyote and enjoys rape, plunder and pillage. They meet for the final showdown in Rio Hondo.
