  1. Hi Patricia. Try ebay to the movies that you want thats where I brought my dad dvd from. I brought my dad Daniel Boone season 1 for his birthday

    From Suzanne Bushell

  2. What’s up,I read your blogs named “Top 20 Indian (Native Americans) Westerns | The Best Western Movies For All Cowboy-Movie Fans” daily.Your writing style is witty, keep up the good work! And you can look our website about love spell.

  3. hi am looking for a movie called escape from sobibo during the world war do u have this in dvds or software would be great yuor side is hard to make through as i could not find anywhere to watch the movies my younger brother is a western series mentor and would really like get them as they are classsic movies hope will take my response in good way my email adress is martinmasinde19942gmail.com

  4. Dancing with Kevin Costner absolutely horrendous.
    The other movies are good.
    But I can’t believe you put that movie as number one.

    • any of these are not representative of Native communities or individuals – But Helen the judges, I am confident, are white. There are many comments by the Natives pointing out the negative and unreal impressions these films left on the minds of young and old white people.

  5. I am looking for two classic western movies – 1) Union Pacific w/Joel McCrae (1939) and 2) The Ox-bow Incident w/Henry Fonda (1943). Do you have these in DVD (VHS would be fine also, if that is all you have). Your site is hard to manipulate through as I could not find anyway to view the movies. My husband is a western movie buff and would really like to get these two classics. By the way, if we want to order movies from your site, how do we go about it. Could not find any place to contact you or place an order. Anyway, a response would be appreciated so I know that you have received this comment, and to also answer my questions. My e-mail addie is kennedypat1942@gmail.com. PLEASE RESPOND!!!!!!
