Announcing Legends of Western Cinema Week 2021


That's right!  Heidi (of Along the Brandywine), Olivia (of Meanwhile, in Rivendell...), and I are co-hosting Legends of Western Cinema Week again this year!  We're holding it July 19-24, and you are hereby invited to ride on over and join the fun.

Like the last few years, this event will be kind of like a blogathon and kind of like a hootenanny.  For five straight days, we'll be celebrating western movies and shows in every way we can think up -- reviews, games, lists, tributes, giveaways, and so on!

You can contribute as many posts as you like, and it doesn't matter if more than one person reviews the same movie or show.  The more celebration of western cinema legends, the better!  (Just remember to keep things family friendly, okay?)

Even if you can't figure out something to write about, you can still participate by filling out this year's tag, which we'll post at the beginning of the party.  Or you can just enjoy everyone else's posts and comment on them -- that's participating too!

There's no official sign-up or roster for this event, though if you want to comment on my post (or Heidi's post, or Olivia's post) saying you're excited for it, and maybe leaving an idea or two for things you want to contribute, we totally welcome that.

If you're excited about this event and want to spread the word, kindly use one of these awesome graphics that Olivia made -- you can tack it up outside your local sheriff's office with the wanted posters, plaster it all over the mirror in the saloon, or just share it on your blog with a link back here so folks can find info about the party.

Happy trails!

  1. I'm excited!

    I sort of forgot about this event (although I'm pretty sure I made a note to myself about it somewhere at some point?!) but as it happens I might already have a post scheduled for July that could maybe with some tweeking be made relevant...hmmm...

    And I look forward to the tag post...

    I'm thinking I might be able to contribute to the prizes ?!

    Anyway I'm excited!

    1. VT, I'm glad you're excited! We do kind of move the date around from year to year, based on all our busy schedules, but "summertime" is a pretty good bet ;-) Hope you can make a post work!

      We each host our own giveaways, generally, and you are definitely welcome to host one yourself as well!

  5. I want to mention that GAVIN MacLEOD, ARLENE GOLONKA and CHARLES GRODIN have all recently passed away. They were all guest stars on the western series THE BIG VALLEY! Gavin is best known for THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW and THE LOVE BOAT. Arlene played MILLIE on two eps of THE ANDY GRIIFITH SHOW and was a regular on MAYBERRY, RFD. Millie worked at the bakery. Charles is best known for his movie career including SEEMS LIKE OLD TIMES and the first two BEETHOVEN movies(about a dog). I am a fan of all three.

    1. Classic TV Fan, oh, I didn't realize Charles Grodin had passed! I really like him in the movie Dave as Kevin Kline's best friend.

      I mostly know Gavin MacLeod from being in one ep of Combat!, "The Masquers."

  7. Hi there,

    Count me in, had initially thought of Westworld but now on the hunt for a good ol' Western (with no sci-fi)!

    1. Either one is fine by me! If you need some suggestions, I've got several lists of western-themed things on my Ten Favorites page. Or you could ramble through my Western Film Reviews page for ideas too.

      I know you'll come up with something intriguing!

  8. Count me in with Goin South from 1978. Been a while since I reviewed Jack Nicholson.

    1. Gill, okay! I haven't seen that one, as I tend to avoid '70s westerns (and most other '70s movies, tbh), but I hope you dig it!

Agree or disagree? That is the question...
