I recently stumbled upon an interesting list of the highest grossing Westerns since 1979. The list is out the same week that Cowboys and Aliens premiered, so I expect the numbers will change over the next month. The top ten include some great films, like Dances with Wolves, True Grit, Unforgiven, Brokeback Mountain, and Open Range. It’s interesting to see that Jonah Hex made less than the Legend of the Lone Ranger and American Outlaws, two dismal films. Even ticket price inflation couldn’t help that terrible movie. I was also surprised to see that Rustler’s Rhapsody made only $6 million. Eventually I will write about that great film. It runs periodically on Showtime, and is well worth your time. See the rest of the list here.
