This September, Sky Movies Classics takes viewers on a cinematic journey through Hollywood's most enduring genre.

Saddle up and grab your Stetson and spurs for back-to-back western greats throughout the entire first week of September. We'll be showcasing vintage greats, including Broken Arrow, Shane and the Oscar-winning True Grit, as well as modern classics such as the infamous Heaven's Gate, plus more recent critical darlings like Unforgiven and 3:10 To Yuma.

From sun-up to sundown, and for the long, lonely nights in between, cowboys and girls can get their fill of the greatest Western warriors including John Wayne, James Stewart, Clint Eastwood and Russell Crowe.
