RARA-AVIS: Re: Looking for hard-boiled westerns

The key hard-boiled western is surely Charles Willeford's THE DIFFERENCE, originally published in 1971 under the title THE HOMBRE FROM SONORA (under the pseudonym 'Will Charles').

As for films, I would recommend Stan Dragoti's DIRTY LITTLE BILLY
(though I guess it's impossible to see these days, unless you manage to catch one of the infrequent television screenings). Monte Hellman's westerns are also pretty hard-boiled.
