    Hi Kids

    Good Answer, Soul! "How the West Was Won" is an interesting movie. It's a western,
    a musical and an epic. I think it had 4 directors.

    Wasn't James Garner in some TV show with "west" in the title? There must be
    dozens of B movie westerns from the 30s and 40s with "west" in the title.

    There was an A picture called "West of the Pecos" when I was a yute.
    And there's "East of Eden". The land of Nod is east of Eden, so maybe
    someday somebody will make a movie called "West of Nod".

    Laurel and Hardy made "Way Out West". You can see it on Youtube. You
    can also listen to an old song called "Little Gray House in the West".

    Remember the movie called 'Krakatoa, East of Java"? I read the volcano
    was actually west of Java. That otta count for something. And I have
    a vague memory of seeing a movie when I was a kid called "Western Skies".
    Maybe Roy Rogers was in it.

    Adios, Pards

    Diane, Could we also add songs with "West" in the title or lyrics? I can think of a few!

    "Buttons and Bows" East is east and West is West and the wrong one I have chose....

    "They Call the Wind Mariah" Way out West they've got a name for wind and rain and fire....

    "Sweet and Low" Sweet and low wind of the Western sea......
