    "Cowboy movies are afar and inbetween, they've been around for a long time and there's many out there. However, the best old cowboy movie has to be The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Despite the fact that it was filmed in 1966 it still holds today as a classic that I enjoy."

    "Cowboys, the old west, duals etc are the best thing about Westerns. They do such a good job in telling you about a time in past in which the west was wild. Lawlessness was abundant and people didn't know if they would die to a duel at any time. This movie about Cowboys does a great job in retelling that time. "

    "High Noon is an old cowboy film, but not the best in my book. High Noon is more for the older generations not for people from my age group. I found it dull and boring. "

    "Excellent old film. Classic western in the most classic way. Only a couple of issues..some scratches and a few markings in this edition. John Wayne at his best in this film. If you haven't seen it you should.. If you have seen it you probably want to see it again."
