I agree with Carey (and Hoot G) in the LAST OUTLAW.
They both came from silents and made other movies together. See the original 3 Mesquiteer movie, GUNSMOKE RANGE which also had "Battlin' Bob" and Tom Tyler, etc.

The Tall T, Randolph Scott. Any of the Scott films directed by Budd Boetticher are fantastic.

You could certainly include Ride the High Country, but maybe it's not a 'B' movie.

None of the Scott's mentioned here are 'B's. His few B westerns were in the early to mid '30s.

The Tim Holt "B" westerns are excellent. Warner Bros. has released three volumes of them, and all are great. Nice picture quality. Tim Holt was an appealing actor, and the production values are way above average.

Ever see the one where Tim with a broken arm beats up a bad hombre in a saloon?
I doubt even "Wild" Bill H. coulda topped that. ;-\

"End of the Trail" with Tim McCoy.
"The Renegade Ranger" with George O'Brian, and a young Rita Hayworth.

Pleiades2,
I haven't seen that one yet--looking forward to it! I'm just finishing volume one of Tim's movies. Volume two is next on my wish list.

Tom Mix in "Rider of Death Valley"; George O'Brien in "Marshal of Mesa City"; Cassidy's "Three Men From Texas". There's more, too many to list. I agree that most of the Tim Holt westerns, Cassidy westerns, and many George O'Brien westerns are excellent productions. My special favorite, though, is Tom Mix in anything.

I've only seen 2 of the Tim Holt Westerns in Vol. I, of his Classic Westerns, so far, Renegade Ranger and The Law West of Tombstone, and both were very good. Also enjoyed Tex Ritter's 4-movie Classic Westerns set. He was a surprisingly good actor.

The Deserter (1971) - great spaghetti western with several big names(Chuck Conners, Woody Strode, Richard Crenna). Worth the time, if you can find it.
