- Life on the Frontier: Our Favourite WesternsStagecoach is a brilliant choice - loved seeing it in the cinema at last years retrospective. But although it is high on my list, just pipping Rio Bravo at the top is Peckinpah's Ride the High Country. It's a fantastic marriage of old and new - both the modern world encroaching on the old west historically, as well as old style westerns being replaced by the likes of Peckinpah's own Wild Bunch. In the film the old tradition is represented by Joel McCrea and an absolutely infuriating Randolph Scott. The latter, after years of hopelessly wooden performances, suddenly started churning out western classics with Budd Boetticher and finished off with a career best performance in this. Finished off! A wonderful performance, really showing what he could do, then off he pops to enjoy his retirement and deprive us of his screen presence (Joel McCrea was always great, of course). Ride is often left to the side in discussions of Peckinpah with the focus on those later, harsher, western works, but the joy of the storytelling and the quality of the performances ensures this remains, for me, not only his best film but my favourite western.
