The .25 Cent Movie

Old Western movies in black and white, 
with the use of sepia to color night. 
Our hero rides in with his trusty sidekick, 
able to tame the wild town right quick. 
But not without his sidekicks comic relief 
and a big shoot out, with a cattle thief. 
They speed up the film for the chase scenes. 
There's always the love triangle it seems. 
Will our hero choose the bawdy saloon singer? 
Or the ranchers daughter, harassed by the gunslinger? 
It really doesn't matter, because we all know, 
in the end our hero rides off into the sunset alone.
