bwahahahaha- The Star Trek Western show was one of my all time favorites. *sign* Captain Kirk and Cowboys. Happy MM!

Osbasso said...

Thank God you put a Star Trek one into each of these!

Gorilla Bananas said...

Ah, young Chekhov! Did his accent do anything for you, Mrs Cake?

Dazza said...

Ah the Magnificent Seven, what a great film that is.

Nice pics,

Dxxx

Western Trek! The Virginian, sigh...Loved James Drury. A most awesome collection, Happy MM!

The Troll said...

Excellent choices all. I liked the second-to-the-last best though. The Star-Trek one was a clever surprise. Happy Mute Monday!

Not much of a western fan but I did enjoy "Alias Smith & Jones" back in the day.

You did get a great collection of pictures, Cake. Thanks.

Westworld was so cool! I remember seeing that with my parents at the drive-in. And I'm a huge fan of all the Spaghetti Westerns, particularly Sergio Leone's. He was an artist. Happy, happy!

Robert Redford as Sundance... that was the first celebrity crush I had. Sigh... the scene where Katherine Ross undresses at gunpoint...

Hi Guys. Back from my holiday now and with a bit more time to reply to comments.

Walker - Thank you. I have read a few western novels too. Have been a fan since I was quite young.

Polar - I love having you in my fan club x

AB - It's one of my fave episodes too. I was literally chortling when I read the theme for this week.

Os - It's becoming a challenge and some weeks are easier than others :)

Mr Bananas - Chekhov was very sweet but I've always loved James T Kirk with a passion. Sadly the only pic I could find of him from that episode was the one showing the flying leap. Still, nice arse!

Dazza - There were several stills from the Magnificent 7 but that one is my favourite.

Kate - I loved James Drury too. All that black leather and slick oiled hair contrasting with the snow white of his horse. Be still my beating heart!

Troll - The Gunfight at the OK Corall? That was the only one I could find. I really wanted a still from one of the movies but they just didnt show enough action. Great theme this week x

Thursday - Yul was definitely a childhood hero of mine :)

Nitebyrd - Who couldnt love Pete and Ben? x

Moi - Yup Sergio definitely had what it takes :)

Lakey - OMG yes! I watched that film as a house prize in my first year at senior school and would have been about 12. I never forgot the impact of that particular scene. I think it's one of the reasons I so love it when Ruf goes all dominant on me.

k9 - Lee Van Cleef was such a great baddie!

JJ - I can hear the theme music and see the cacti in my head even now :)

Trixie - Like I said, it's becoming a challenge ;P

Old Knudsen said...

Didn't the High Chaparral have the ugliest cast ever?

Aunty Belle said...

Wow--very thorough representation--Love early James Garner. And The Duke and Hepburn--ho!

Happy MM!

Southern Sage said...

Old Knudsen - I have to admit to having a crush on Buck and Manolito :)

Aunty Belle - I think the Duke and Hepburn pic is fabulous :)

Sage - Which ones, which ones... ?*drools*
