Dan Duryea was in an excellent Audie Murphy western as the bad guy I have seen a few times. I can't remember the name of the movie, because I love many of the Murphy westerns and I usually don't pay attention to the title, just the cast.

Dan Duryea was also in an episode of the TV series Daniel Boone, which I also loved, and his character in that was downright despicable. Great bad buy. Van Cleef to me is only a bad guy in the Good the Bad and the Ugly.

I realize this is an old post Half Pint. But are you saying that Clint Eastwood was one of your favorite bad guys in a movie? If so, it doesn't matter to me if your issue with him is the Quantrill type argument. That I can understand.

If you claim that his character is a bad guy because he fought against the Union, then it is difficult for me to understand since I live in the South and I greatly admire my ancestry, whether here in America or back in Ireland or France, whatever the era in history. I am not ashamed of my heritage.

In an industry full of wannabe tough guy action heros, Studi is the real deal.
Excellent choice! You really wanted to get him .

I think my favourite bad guy in western movies is Bruce Dern in "Hang Em High".
Maugua in "Last of the Mohicans" is just plain scarry!

The longest sustained laughter that I have experienced in a movie theatre was while watching "Cat Baleu" and when Marvin walked into the house, sang happy birthday to the candles displayed around the body and blew them out. People laughed themselves sick and fell from their seats.

As for poor Jane? Yeah, I know.

Palance surely conveyed soft spoken menace in that role.
