The Super Hot Women of those Old Timey Westerns

By Dustin Rowles | Seriously Random Lists | October 24, 2011 |

Moreover, walking into a room with a television (all of them) on a Saturday afternoon in my mother's house, and you'd invariably find an old Western movie blaring in Technicolor. I despised them. They were boring and old and made my nose run. But, I have to admit, I always dug the ladies in those old Westerns. Back in the day, between the 1940s and 1960s, Westerns were like comic-book movies now: Everyone that was anyone had to have a Western on their resume, so most of the pinup women would throw on a cleavage-revealing dress with ruffles and ride off in the sunset with John Wayne or Clint Eastwood or Charles Bronson or Clark Gable . And although that wasn't exactly the Era of the Woman, Westerns often found ways to accommodate the star power of the top actresses by creating meaty roles as prostitutes, cowhands, gun-slinging love interests, and even Native Americans where no Native American blood existed. It was kind of cool.

Obviously, I don't have recollection of them all, but I remember enough to put together a quick evening list of the super-hot women of those old-timey Westerns.
