This is a fun two movies that the Grit channel is showing this weekend. Pretty cute. Kenny Rogers as Brady Hawkes and Reba Mcentire as Burgundy Jones. They are trying to travel to a very important card game in San Francisco and meet all these guys along the way. Then there are old favorites from the early days of westerns. Such as: Chuck Connors as the Rifleman and his son, Caine from Kung Fu, Bat Masterson, Clint Walker as Cheyenne Body, Hugh O'Brian as Wyatt Earp, Diamond Jim, Patrick Macnee as Sir Colin, the gentleman gambler, Judge Roy Bean and daughter Ruby Roy, Linda Evans, Doug McClure and James Drury from the Virginian, Brian Keith as the Westerner, and Cookie from Rawhide. And, Claude Akins as President Theodore Roosevelt. If you are a early tv western lover this is a fun treat.

I would have loved to see that! I do love the old western shows and when I am at a client's house and they are viewing them, I find myself wanting to pull up a chair and watch with them. LOL.

Someone else was talking about the Grit channel earlier this week. I've never heard of it before! I don't have cable, so I don't know if it's a cable channel or a satellite channel? Is it an old channel that got renamed (like CMT got changed to Spike)?

It's a cable station. We have a lot of good channels. Not a old one that I know of. This one has Cheyenne, Maverick, Wagon Train, Virginian, The Big Valley, etc.

I like the old westerns, the new "remakes" are pretty bad in my opinion.

I've never seen this movie, but it seems there is a cowboy missing in that line-up - James Garner - Brett Maverick. Must be interesting with all those actors in it.
