Among TCM's 100 westerns

I think two movies coming up tomorrow in TCM's look at the western genre deserve mention. The first is The Bronze Buckaroo, at 10:00 AM. This is a race movie, starring black singing cowboy Herb Jeffries in a story about trying to keep fraudsters from taking over a friend's ranch. Along the way, Herb gets to sing a couple of songs with the Four Tones. Interesting, of course, since it's a race movie, and those don't show up very often.

Tomorrow at 12:15 PM, there's a TCM showing of Go West, Young Lady, which I blogged about back in December of last year. It's a fun little comic western with Glenn Ford and Penny Singleton. Allen Jenkins gets a chance to do a singing number, which fits in well since it's a song about how he wouldn't make a good singing cowboy.
