The short answer, quoted from Wikipedia, is as follows Spaghetti Western, also known as Italian Western, is a broad sub-genre of Western films that emerged in the mid-1960s in the wake of Sergio Leone's film-making style and international box-office success. The term was used by critics in USA and other countries because most of these Westerns ...
That would be The Magnificent Seven: The Magnificent Seven is a 1960 American western film directed by John Sturges. It is a western-style remake based on Akira Kurosawa's 1954 Japanese film Seven Samurai. The film stars Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, and Horst Buchholz who play a group of seven ...
I don't know if the references to westerns are quite as direct as you might be expecting. Interviews with Vince Gilligan about the series indicate that he was influenced by many films of many genres, and the western was certainly among them. These are a few examples Tuco Salamanca was named after Tuco Ramirez, the 'Ugly' in The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. ...
The Spaghetti Western, or Euro-Western, carries the legacy of NeoRealism in its very fabric, yet is a conscious step away from the Historical cynicism and introversion that had entrenched itself within Italian Cinema. Cinecitta, as the Italian Film Mecca or "Hollywood on the Tiber" was naturally the primary studio for most Italian Neorealism (after being ...
Ooops! - I found the answer myself! It's Bite the Bullet (1975), starring Gene Hackman, Candice Bergen and James Coburn. Not as good a movie as I'd have hoped from that line-up, in all honesty. The movie centres on a 700-mile "endurance horse race". I think one of the central themes is basically that it's "the American way" to win at all costs. Per the ...
Could be Blind Justice (1994): Source ... a western about a blind gunfighter roaming the range with a baby in tow. The enigmatic Canaan (Armand Assante) is a serape-clad vision in black, first glimpsed carrying a swaddled infant through Monument Valley [...] He gets sidetracked in a one-horse town, where a small band of federal ...
Sounds like you are talking about Winnetou by Karl May. There were several movies and a TV miniseries. IMDB has a list of all the movies, too. Oh and, his name is "Old Shatterhand", he is Winnetou's blood brother.
For some reason I keep being drawn to The Magnificent Seven - but I have a feeling it's a John Ford film as mentioned elsewhere. Here's a couple of '7' shots anyway.
As I've written before, I don't watch westerns, but I just found a clip of Rango that shows the few minutes up to the above screencap. The surrounding area looks like Monument Valley, which is where John Ford is known to make his westerns. Feeling that Rango was looking to employ the well-known, I was concentrating on the John Ford/Monument Valley ...
Hmmm... Seem like you will have to be cautious as this reminds me of Mos Eisley Spaceport where you won't find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy: In case you don't know, this is from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
You might be looking for At Gunpoint starring Fred MacMurray, Dorothy Malone, and Walter Brennan: The peace-loving owner of a general store, who became a town hero when he luckily killed the leader of a gang of bank robbers, is deserted by the townspeople who fear the threatened return of the vengeful bandits.
This is from Lucky Luke and the Daltons from 2004. IIRC it's a magic red sombrero that makes the wearer invulnerable. You can see the scene here (the exact moment is around 1:35):
Based off your description and an extensive search, I believe that I found your childhood western, Los Amigos. It also goes by Deaf Smith & Johnny Ears. From Wikipedia: "...Johnny recognises a girl he earlier has watched taking a bath in the river as the prostitute Susie Q..." "...Deaf pays so he can spend a night with her..." "...They set ...
This sounds like Firecreek. Jimmy Stewart plays a part-time sheriff in a small town: "He is a peace-loving farmer whose childishly made sheriff's badge is practically an honorary one." Roger Ebert described the sheriff (and badge): This time, Jimmy is the part-time sheriff of a town populated with broken-down, defeated settlers. He gets two bucks a month ...
(I'm trying to forget how much time I've used on this, but:) I missed a lot on the year, but the duel scene seems to be somewhat accurate, though it was at sunset and not sunrise. It is not however the high-point of the film (I believe). It might be that I did not see the entire film back in the day. It also seems like he might was some sort of secret agent ...
I'm pretty sure it's The Quick and the Dead. Here is the described scene. Some of the details described are mixed up, but it also matches with Sharon Stone waking up with a gun at some point. I couldn't find a clip of that.
