Is there a western where a character doesn't deliver an intimidating
monologue? I do have a few favorite westerns, but don't recall
specific passages. However, the IMDb does have quotes for most films.
So, you could check out the entries for a few westerns, and probably
come up with some good stuff. I'm not a John Wayne fan, but he did
make a few good films, and was known for delivering ultimatums. You
might start with "The Searchers." I do recall that there were some
words exchanged between Robert Mitchum and Robert Preston in Robert
Wise's great film noir western, "Blood on the Moon."
