Western is a genre of movies which is centered around the latter half of the 19th century in the American frontier. When you think about Western movies, some of the first things that come to mind are cowboys, mighty steeds, gun-slinging outlaws, lots of liquor and wide stretches of desert-like landscapes.
While we all love a good hero, they would not be as successful without having the trusty sidekicks alongside them. These saddle pals not only provide much-needed comedic relief, but they are also the one, in most cases, who play an integral role into taking down the bad guy.
There are hundreds of actors who have the role of the sidekick, but there are very few who stay in our minds as the best. Some of them have been so successful that their roles have led to the creation of their own series. Some of these people include Smiley Burnette, Dub Taylor, Fuzzy St. John, Slim Pickens, Andy Clyde and Rand Brooks.
