The funny thing about the Western is that it's really hard to describe exactly what it is. At its most obvious, a western is a movie that takes place on the American frontier.  But by that definition, Little House on the Priarie is a Western. I don't think most people have that in mind when they think Western.  On the other hand, the sci-fi film "Outland" starring Sean Connery from 1981 is a Western in regards to the plot and style, if not the setting.  The Road Warrior is another example of a western set in a non-western setting.  Truth be told, the "Western" is a film genre that has very little to do with the historical reality that was the American west, thankfully for those western settlers.

Damn, I think my ramblings killed the thread.

 

Anyhow, here is Death Rides a Horse.
