I am not a great fan of westerns, but I would add to the lists presented the film Open RangeRobert Duvall’s speech to the corrupt town marshal is about as solid a libertarian outpouring as you will see in a film. I’m paraphrasing here, but the essence of his words – with Duvall pointing his gun straight at the marshal as he spoke – was that “a man has a right to defend his life, and to protect his property, even when threatened by the bought-and-paid-for marshal.”
