  • Monte Walsh: Who's gonna watch it?

    Tom Selleck is the closest thing to John Wayne there is today. He really brings 'cowboy' movies to life. I'd give anything to be able to warp back through time to the 1880s-90s.

      Me too. Im there now.

      Anybody remember the original "Monty Walsh " played by Lee Marvin on the big screen ? I saw it with my Dad, I'm must have been 10 or 11.

      A classic.

        A good movie(has Tom Selleck ever done a BAD cowboy movie?) [Wink] , but also very depressing. Imagine being able to watch your whole way of life rapidly slip away.....all in the name of 'progress'. THEN imagine having your friends and loved ones die....and in a couple of cases, actually being forced to KILL 2 of your former cowboy partners.

        Sometimes I think the world would be a better place if time had stopped in the Old West..... [Frown]

          I was a huge fan of Magnum P.I. and usually list it as my second favorite TV show of all time, right after M*A*S*H.

          I wondered though what he would do after such a longstanding role when that show ended, but when I saw Quigley Down Under I knew he was on to something. I was really glad to see him continue with the Western/Cowboy genre after his performance in Quigley.

          Along the lines of "cowboy" roles though, I LOVED The Shadow Riders with him and Sam Elliot playing brothers that founght on different sides during the War of Northern Aggression, then come back together to fight local corrupt officials and BGs ("blowing up a jail-I must be LOCO!")

          Also, the scene where Selleck "rescues" Elliot from the lynching was one of my favorites ever put to celluoid ("it's hot boys...just how many holes do you want to dig?") Hoooooah!

          I've never really thought about it, but I see your logic shooter-Selleck is probably the best "cowboy" (portraying) actor today. Years ago, most of the serious actors almost HAD to do cowboy parts to be accepted, but since demand for those movies has dried up almost completely, NOBODY seems to be making them today.

          I know that I can go to my mom's house ANYTIME and she's either watching Animal Planet or a western. That's all she cares to watch-I guess because westerns were so big to her growing up and in the 50's when she and dad dated and went to movies.

          Also, TV had their share Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Rawhide, etc. but again, time change.

          And judging from the TRIPE that's considered prime time entertainment now, not always for the better.

          The main thing that I enjoy about Selleck's success is that he is truly a gentleman and a good person. SOOOO many of todays "stars" are snot nosed adolescents that WILL NEVER be half the man Selleck is.
          People have more fun than anybody.

            I'll be watching it as well! Let's not forget Sellecks part in Three Men and a Baby. That was one of the funniest movies I've ever seen which goes to show you how diverse his acting ability is!
