The Hound and Magneto in the old west? I'll check it out. 1992 and 1993 gave us the Unforgiven and Tombstone. They were the last great westerns. Maybe The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford belongs in that category. It was just a different type of western so most either love or hate it. I miss really good westerns though. Today Hollywood manages to f*ck up the Lone Ranger for Christ's sake. How do you screw up a formula this simple? Bad guys do bad stuff. Good guys show up and stop bad guys. Good guys save the day. Kiss the girl. Ride off into the sunset. The end.
