The Most Unforgettable Stars of Western TV and Movies
Some people would agree that Western is one of the most beloved film genres of all time. Perhaps it’s because films of the said genre depicts the life of the old frontier, a reminder of the past, with characters that are considered larger than life. It can be agreed that no other film genre can tell a story like how a great Western can. Hero cowboys, saloons, horses, villains, gunfight, and drama – these are all elements that make up a Western film. Although the genre somehow took a backseat in recent years, especially when the great Clint Eastwood said he will take a break from Western after doing the classic The Unforgiven. However, it’s making a comeback, with Antoine Fuqua’s remake of The Magnificent Seven, and Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight and Django Unchained. Nonetheless, Westerns of the past has etched themselves into our minds, especially with memorable characters such as the ones in our list.
U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn, True Grit
Portrayed by John Wayne
When you think of Westerns, admit it or not, one name comes into mind – John Wayne. Because the reality is that John Wayne is Western and Western is John Wayne. The legendary actor may have appeared in numerous Western-themed movies, but his most iconic role is probably that of U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn in the original True Grit. The marshal was an unstoppable force when it came to helping those in need and fighting for justice. John Wayne may have passed away in 1979, but his larger than life Western characters continue to live on.
