i dont think he was on the scale of Jimmy Stewart though BW,he was one of my favourites.

Richard Widmark made a good cop but in westerns like Yule Brynner he always wore the same little 'kiss me quick' hats. He was crap in the Alamo as Jim Bowie.

I have to agree with the Bandido here !

Richard Widmark was a terrible Western character, he always looked terible and was never convincing.

Glen Ford was probably a better actor, but always looked terrible and Robert Ryan was about the same.

right ,well i think he was very good in that film great story line too, what about the film where he played the sheriff and was judged as being to stuck in the old gunfighting ways which eventualy led to the town turnng against him and getting shot.hell of a film great script  and kept with the times.cheers wyatt

Wonder how modern day( ie 1990's onwards) movies and actors will stand the test of time,will future re enactors/westerners say the same about them I wonder????
