Between 1956 and 1973 Dean made ten pretty decent westerns, and only except a few were comedies with music, although most had some comedy in them. He starred along side some of Hollywood’s greats, such as John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Jimmy Stewart and Rock Hudson, and was able to hold his own. Here’s a look at those western movies.

Rare, beautifully preserved and with that celebrity connection it’s a true Hollywood car.

Bob Siler grew up in Burbank, not far from Universal Studios and Warner Brothers where they made his favorite monster movies. A long-time fan of Westerns, he still has a hard time believing that the great John Wayne could die. Bob has created many lists detailing where the famous and infamous lived, are buried, and the cars they drove. He has recently completed this list of Western Stars homes after many years. Burbank Bob now resides in Portland, Oregon.
