Just saw Red River....great old film (1948) with John Wayne and Mont. Cliff.....Next...
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962), John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart
(Robert Duvall, Tommy Lee Jones, Danny Gover,
Robert Ulrich, Rick Schroder, etc) ... Always loved that movie.
I also have fond memories of those old westerns of my childhood: The Rifelman, Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Have Gun Will Travel, Wagon Train, Rawhide, The Big Valley, Branded, Wanted: Dead or Alive, The Lone Ranger, The Magnificent Seven, etc (too many to list!)
Does Blazing Saddles count?
I was smitten by the "Lonesome Dove" series. I also enjoyed the "Spaghetti Westerns" starring Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef.
And does "The Man from Snowy River" count as a western? If so, I liked it as well.
It makes my list...It's one of the few DVDs I own.
Damn right it does. It counts for this and this.
Tombstone. Doc Holiday was the man...
Red River, Rio Bravo, Once Upon a Time in the West...
Does Cornwall count as Western?
Seriously tho, 'Bad Day At Black Rock' is cool.
escape from new york
Tombstone. 3:10 to Yuma is very good too.
Why Ike, maybe poker just isn't your game. I know, how about a spelling contest.
Sackets. the blond guy is awesome
Haha, good one. I think it was Sam Pekinpah who said that all movies are westerns.
I vote for the Sergio Leone Spaghetti Westerns
and The Quick and The Dead with Sharon Stone and Gene Hackman.
Its interesting but Sharon Stone never really did it for me, however, for some reason she is really fascinating in this movie.
Sergio Leone's films and by extention and to a greater extent Akira Kurosawa films e.g...SevenSamurai and especially Yojimbo.
As quoted by Sam Peckinpah - "I'd like to be able to make a Western like Kurosawa makes Westerns"
Clint Eastwood's "Unforgiven"
Oh, waaay too many to list, but here are a few classic favorites:
High Plains Drifter - Clint Eastwood
Hombre - Paul Newman
Hud - Paul Newman (sexy and packin!)
High Noon - Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly
Stagecoach - John Wayne
My Little Chickadee - Mae West and W.C. Fields (a quotable bonanza)
The Misfits - Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Montgomery Clift
Destry Rides Again - Jimmy Stewart and Marlene Dietrich (inspiration for Blazing Saddles)
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - well, you know
Hey, what are movies without pictures?
Anything Sergio Leone (particularly the Good, the Bad and the Ugly and Fistful of Dynamite (aka Once Upon a Time the Revolution)), The Outlaw Josey Wales and the Wild Bunch. And Unforgiven.
But not necessarily in that order - and not necessarily not in that order either. :smile:
