Here's a link to a terrific new promotional interview that the Huffington Post has conducted with TCM's Keith Carradine regarding the channel's month-long celebration of the Western genre:

This series doesn't nearly have enough Universal and Republic westerns.

Here's a link to Martin Scorsese's column on this series, originally published in the July 2016 issue of TCM's Now Playing magazine: http://www.tcm.com/t...for-July.html. 

Thanks for sharing the link. Hopefully everyone will have a chance to read Scorsese's article and to watch as many great westerns in this series as possible.

Great background information, Barton. I like the Cult Westerns theme. They didn't really do that this time around, though there is a day devoted to spaghetti westerns, which could be described as cult-like. 

 

I also like the western musicals idea, and I'm surprised they didn't include CALAMITY JANE, since it's in the TCM/Turner library.

 

We should point out that John Wayne had a whole week of programming not long ago when he was Star of the Month again. Plus there was a month dedicated to singing cowboys a few summers ago, back in July 2011.

I have reviewed the titles in Now Playing Guide and picked out the ones I want to see.  Either this month or next, there is a Gene Autry movie, Boots and Saddles.  Now that Encore Western is no longer showing him at noon on Sundays (and rarely at all), hopefully TCM can pick up some of his movies.

Somehow, I have always preferred Autry's to Roy Rogers or John Waynes or most of the other "B" Westerns of the 30's and 40's.  And not for the singing.

BOOTS AND SADDLES airs on July 13. That particular day TCM is airing B westerns with singing cowboys. So there is also stuff with Roy Rogers.

The unusual title of this festival -- SHANE (Plus 100 More Great Westerns) -- is explained over at the TCM Backlot.

 

It seems that TCM did a similar festival of Westerns in November 2002. That series was called Every Great Western (Except SHANE) -- a play on the fact that, at that time, the broadcast rights to that 1953 classic were not available.

Thanks Barton for letting us know how this programming came about. I didn't have TCM back in 2002. I am wondering if a lot of the same titles are being repeated (except, of course, SHANE which is 'new' this time around).

 

It's good to see Keith Carradine will be hosting.

So, based on TCM's on-air advertisement for SHANE Plus 100 More Great Westerns, I can report that this series will be hosted by actor and Oscar-winning songwriter Keith Carradine (NASHVILLE (1975)).

 

Carradine's father, the prolific character actor John Carradine, is featured in John Ford's 1939 classic STAGECOACH. Appropriately enough, that film will be the first one Keith Carradine introduces for this series at 8:00PM on Tuesday, July 5.

This special listing is for me. The only drawback is I have seen so many there are only a few left to discover. Some B films and a few silents plus a welcome return of "Three Godfathers" from 1936 will be on my list.

I also prefer the '36 version of THREE GODFATHERS. I think Chester Morris is quite good in it.

 

This series will help people rediscover westerns that are seldom aired.

Some schedule changes have already occurred. Two James Stewart Universal westerns have bit the dust.

 

WINCHESTER '73 is no longer airing on July 12th. The other Anthony Mann westerns that evening have been bumped up, and THERE WAS A CROOKED MAN has been added. RENEGADES OF THE WEST was also removed.

 

Meanwhile, DESTRY RIDES AGAIN was pulled from its slot on July 26th. It has been replaced with BROKEN ARROW, a Fox western with Stewart in the public domain. 

 

These seem to be budget-related cuts. Though there is speculation the two Universal westerns are being saved for a James Stewart Summer Under the Stars day in August. We will find out soon if that is indeed the case.
