... but until now, IIRC, the only western Ford has done is a comedy western called No Knife, where he had second billing to Gene Wilder (in the same interview, Ford called it the world's first Jewish western! Maybe he forgot about Blazing Saddles).
That was more widely known as The Frisco Kid--a fun little movie, but fairly average.
I'm looking forward to Cowboys & Aliens. This might be a lot of fun.
