The Western III Hall of Fame

Time to saddle up, kick up your spurs and ride hard one final time
before the Western Countdown Stage coach leaves town!!

So, WELCOME
TO


https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca88...a-5Z3HZqzDRTWE

Alias: [email protected] I NEED TO SEE THIS
BEFORE I SEND IN MY LIST!!

Alrighty then, as we all know, The Deadline to get a List in for the Western Countdown is May 15, 2020 so we've been lucky enough to slip in one final Hall of Fame before hand. And, to repeat myself (again):
"I would like to make this coincides with that Last Minute Scenario and suggest that we all go with a nomination that is one that you really wanted to see before finalizing your List of 25, or, even a Blind Grab that has caught your interest but has not fit into your viewing schedule.
This isn't mandatory, just a suggestion for Nomination Consideration. I'm sure a lot of us have already gone through the "Big Name" Westerns and are now in search of those gems in the rough to fill in the gaps of a Voting List.
Now, of course, should a Big Name STILL remain unseen and a true need to see by anyone joining in, that'll be just fine.
We had done this when I hosted the 30's II HoF with a quick draw that brought out a lot of great unknowns worthy of the Countdown that did show up ON the Countdown. So I'd like to repeat that."


Since a lot of folks are really looking for films that they haven't seen yet, I'd like to accommodate those of that state of mind by doing an early reveal of everyone that signs up quickly. Say, maybe Friday -- That's February 14th; and then keep Entry Open for another week after that. Which should be around February 21th for all late comers who, having seen what's been nominated, hanker to join up and thrown down, while the rest of us git ta watchin.

Since we're all pretty familiar with the RULES regarding Hall of Fames I won't bother printing them up.
All I ask is:
Play Nice,
Have Fun,
No Spitting,
No Shooting within Town Limits,
If you're going to Gamble -- PAY YOUR [email protected] DEBTS,
Tip Your Bartender,
Don't Tip the Cows, they don't like it and it's HELL getting them back up again,
Clean Up after Your Horse,
And One Final Thing. . . We're plumb proud of our Brothel and anyone disrespecting it or the fine ladies (and gents) that work, play and cohabit it's premise. . .
Well, visit our local cemetery and the answer will become apparent.

Wow there's only 3 choices there. Unless it's not on the westerns list hmmmm. Either way I'm liking it because one of the things I like to do for these countdowns is to watch anything I haven't seen from the current lists that are eligible.

I'm doing the same as well. Not exactly sure if it's something up your alley, @cricket, but it's a lesser known that caught my eye from the Western Countdown Thread

Maybe one of the shots with hat in The Third Man, could pass as a western avatar?

edarsenal 02-12-20 01:10 PM

I went looking for Orson in a cowboy hat as well. The closest was the one he wears in F for Fake

https://www.oscars.org/sites/oscars/...?itok=3glXOQ12

which, if you sepia tone it, splash a desert mountain ranch in the back. . . it MIGHT be passable. . .


something along these lines:
