Legends of Western Cinema Week 2019


It's officially Legends of Western Cinema Week, the blogging shindig hosted by Heidi of Along the Brandywine, Olivia of Meanwhile, in Rivendell... and myself.  We're so glad you're joining us to celebrate western stories of the big and small screen!

As promised, we have a tag that you are welcome to copy to your own blog or website and fill out there.  Please remember to link to one of our kick-off posts so your readers can find the party.

~Legends of Western Cinema Week Tag~

1) Do you tolerate, like, or love westerns?
2) What do you enjoy about them and, more broadly, the west itself (e.g. the history, accompanying paraphernalia, etc)?
3) What's the first western you can remember watching?
4) Who are your favorite western stars, the ones whose presence in a western will make you pick it up off the shelf?
5) What's your favorite performance by an actress in a western?
6) What is your "go-to" western, the one you'll typically reach for?
7) Do your family/friends share your interest in westerns, or are you a lone ranger (pun completely intended)?
8) Pick one western to live inside for a week, and explain why you chose it.
9) What are some of your favorite lines from western movies? Are there any you quote regularly?

ALL participating blog posts should get added to this widget, which should (crossing my fingers here) make them all show up on all three host blogs!  So if you write a movie review, fill out the tag, or create any other posts for Legends of Western Cinema Week, add each one separately to this widget:



I can't wait to see what all of you come up with for this event!  People have signed up to do some pretty amazing posts, I have to say.  I myself will be contributing a game, a top ten list, and at least one movie review over the course of the week.  Also, Heidi, Olivia, and I are each hosting a giveaway!  So you have lots of chances to win cool western-movie-related prizes.  More about that in my next post.

All right, let's do this!

  1. I'm having trouble linking a second post to the widget. Obviously, I managed it yesterday, but clicking doesn't seem to get me anywhere today. Ir could be that I am technologically challenged or the laptop is wonky.

    1. OK. I think I got it. I also think I had a brain cramp or three.

    2. Paddy, you did get it to work! But if it does glitch up again, I can go behind the scenes and add or fix links too.

  2. Ok, sooo I tried to adjust my first Top 10 link and now it's behaving in a very wonky manner. :/ I left the link a second time (and it seems to work perfectly), so I was wondering if you have a way of going into the widget behind the scenes and maybe deleting my first T10 link? :p

    1. Heidi, all fixed! I can go behind the scenes and change, tweak, delete, etc :-) It looks like your first try had the mobile website, not regular, so that might have been the problem.

  3. First post is up! Two reviews to come. I may take part in that tag, too, those questions are too tempting to pass up.

  6. I accidentally put two links to the same post I did on the link up widget. Is there a way to fix that? If not, I'm sorry about that. :P

    1. Faith, no problem! I have the power to remove or edit things for that widget (mwahaha!), so it's all fixed.

  7. I love how many posts there are! I haven't even had a chance to really start diving into these, so this is going to be so much fun over the next couple of weeks.

Agree or disagree? That is the question...
