I'll have to look for Broken Trail and He11 or High Water, first two films mentioned that I don't recall.

Last night I watched Thundering Drums with Richard Boone. A lot of attention was paid to authenticity, ie; the troops carried early Allin conversion carbines, McClellan Saddles etc.. And every mount wore issued rope halters and leads neatly tied under the animals neck exactly as would have been done for picketing. Nicely done. However, Ft Canby is not in the Sonoran Desert. 😆

All the Spaghetti Westerns, Two Mules for sister Sarah, Jeremiah Johnson, Fort Apache, Once Upon a Time in the West. List goes on. My grandfather was a history professor at Grand Canyon for 35 years. He was big on early American history and Arizona history. We would watch westerns at our cabin up in Walker together. That's where I got my love for them.

Oh and as much as I liked Tombstone, I liked Wyatt Earp more. Wyatt Earp was far more historically accurate and the history nerd in me prefers that. I fully admit though that Tombstone had far better actors and was much more exciting to watch.

The daughter in pale rider? I’m pretty sure he sleeps with her if I remember right. The mom wants him to.

Lots of old westerns filmed in sedona. There are some free apps that stream nothing but old classic westerns.
