The Ten films that got it wrong thread seems to be petering out, I got some good info from it but it has left me wanting more.

Little Hawk mentioned his favorite western movie and that got me to thinking. We are considering putting in some extra buck and upping our netflicks so that we can see more movies per month. But then, what to see?

We already own my two favorite Westerns, Tombstone and Little Big Man, but what else is out there? What are your favorite westerns? and why?

Can I count Seven Samurai as a Western? We also already have it and Magnificent Seven.

I particularly like "The Man Who Shot Liberty Vallance", because it is a really good moral film too. James Stewart was someone who could almost make the filming of a Virginia Woolf movie bearable... No... I exaggerate. I could watch him in almost anything though and among his Westerns, "Broken Arrow" and "The Shootist", also with John Wayne, were well worth watching too.

If you haven't seen the Searchers and your a fan of westerns I suggest you check it out ... to me it's definately one of the all time classic western movies. It's very well done.

If your also one of those who is turned off by John Wayne (as I know msome people are) don't let that prevent you from seeing it.

I just watched "My Darling Clementine" a couple of weeks ago and I highly recommend it. Filmed in 1946 it was directed by John Ford and stars Henry Fonda, Victor Mature and Walter Brennan and portrays the Wyatt Earp in Tombstone saga which culminates in the shootout at the OK Corral. A true classic of the genre.

My list would include--pretty much in order of my esteem:
The Searchers - My nominee for best western ever.
My Darling Clementine - A take on the OK Corral mythos; you can almost
                        feel the dust of Tombstone
The Man Who Shot Libery Valance - ditto other posts.
The Professionals - Terrific caper film. Worth it just for the final
                   exchange between Lee Marvin and Ralph Bellamy.
Red River - Mutiny on the Bounty in the west.
Warlock - Very underrated to my mind. What happens to a town that
          hires a professional town marshall.                        
Ride the High Country - Terrific performances by Randolph Scott (his
                        last) and Joel McCrea (his last real role).
The Gunfighter - Gregory Peck as a retired gunfighter.
Shane - A knight errant in the frontier west.
Support Your Local Sheriff - Great spoof of western film conventions.
Fort Apache - A take on the Custer myth...not about Custer tho.

I forgot to mention "Destry Rides Again". The one that Stewart made with Audie Murphy was also quite watchable. The title escapes me.
I found John Wayne quite entertaining. So I enjoyed "True Grit" and practically anything he was in. That said, I think "The Shootist" was a cut above anything else he did. Of modern Westerns, I reckon we will have a long wait until anything nearly as good as "Unforgiven" emerges.
Of Western spoofs, my vote also goes to "Support Your Local Sheriff".

JtS - When I was a lad we had two theaters (Hollywood and Beverly Hills) called the Hitching Post. They showed only B-westerns for the kiddie set. Kids would go there wearing hats and chaps, and the Roy or Gene six-shooter. My favorite B-Westerns were the Gilbert Roland, 'Cisco Kids' series. I have seen 5 of the 6 of them as an adult; some of them had Tom Joad-like dialogue.

I think we folk, herein, have given you a terrific cross section of A westerns.

WesleyS - I just looked at the IMDb list. Pretty decent. Unlike many recent lists, it's not heavily skewed to newer product, although one could argue that there isn't a lot of newer product.
But 'Johnny Guitar' at #50? It is one of the most overwrought films of any genre; it makes 'Duel in the Sun' or 'Lust in the Dust' seem like high art!

I would definitely put "Cat Ballou" on the "must see" list. I don't know if a purist would consider it to be a genuine Western, but it was one of the more memorable movies I've seen. I've heard that Lee Marvin, after seeing the movie before it was released, went and hid under his bed, saying "My God, what have I done? Nobody will ever take me as a serious actor again!" But his shame and humiliation was pretty well alleviated when he won an Oscar for his role as the drunken gunfighter. I'd seen Lee Marvin in a lot of movies where he played detectives, crooks, etc., but it was in "Cat Ballou" that I first really noticed him.

My nomination for The Greatest Western Ever Made is "The Big Country." Plot set-up from Internet Movie Data Base:
Retired, wealthy sea Captain James McKay (Gregory Peck) arrives in the vast expanse of the West to marry fiancée Pat Terrill (Carroll Baker). McKay is a man whose values & approach to life are a mystery to the ranchers & ranch foreman Steve Leech (Charlton Heston) takes an immediate dislike to him. Pat is spoiled, selfish & controlled by her wealthy father, Major Henry Terrill (Charles Bickford). The Major is involved in a ruthless civil war, over watering rights for cattle, with a rough hewn clan led by Rufus Hannassey (Burl Ives). The land in question is owned by Julie Maragon (Jean Simmons) & both Terrill & Hannassey want it.
It has everything that a good Western needs to have—all the clichés you've ever seen in Westerns—but it handles them with a slightly new twist, such as the shoot-out between Gregory Peck and Rufus Hannassey's cowardly bully of a son (Chuck Connors). McKay (Peck) insists that it be fought "like gentlemen;" with a brace of single-shot dueling pistols. Jean Simmons plays the purty school marm (single, of course) who owns the land—and the water rights—that everyone else wants.

Most people assume that Burl Ives got his Oscar for playing "Big Daddy" in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" (1958), but not so. He was great as "Big Daddy." But he was awarded the Oscar for Rufus Hannassey in "The Big Country" (also 1958). He was bloody brilliant in that role!

One of the really great things about this movie is that there are no clear-cut lines as to who the "good guys" and the "bad guys" are. The two people who display real integrity are McKay (Peck) and Rufus Hannassey (Burl Ives).

Great sequence:   Steve Leech (Heston), ranch foreman in love with the rancher's spoiled daughter, challenges McKay (Peck) to a fist fight. Later, they meet in the corral in the dead of night and beat the crap out of each other for about an hour. No clear winner. As they both lay there in the dirt, bruised and bleeding and no longer able to move, Peck lifts his face out of the dirt and says, "Tell me Leech, what did we prove?" No answer. Then, they both crawl painfully to their feet and stagger off in opposite directions.

I think there's a metaphor there.

First, alanabit.....If you're ever over here, we'll do a Western Marathon.....same movies my friend.

And that's pretty well true for most named on this thread. Western or not, Blazing Saddles is one of my favorite movies period. A few I haven't seen so far (I don't think)............

Once Upon a Time in the West---Henry Fonda playing against type
Firecreek---ALSO has Henry Fonda playing against type
The Unforgiven
Night Passage (Audie Murphy and Jimmy Stewart as brothers)
Junior Bonner---Sam Peckinpah goes to the rodeo; McQueen is great
The Wild Bunch---Sam does the violence thing
The Big Land---Alan Ladd sleeper
Sons of Katie Elder---Real schlock but I still love it
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid---Did I miss this one above?

Geez............I could go on and on with this. I loved the old westerns as a kid too. Buck Jones, Tom Mix, Gene Autry, Tim McCoy, Bob Steele, etc.......And I waited for each new one from Jimmy Stewart, Audie Murphy, and especially Alan Ladd............***sigh***.........very happy days. I could list a hundred and still have more.

Let me give you a freebie bonus selection. This one is just plain entertaining for the cast alone but the plot is at least half-assed and keeps your attention as well. Hannie Caulder is worth the price of admission on several levels. Robert Culp as the philosophical gunfighter that wears glasses, Raquel Welch showing just a bit of skin, and then the villainous brothers who have killed Hannie's husband----This group is worth the price of 20 admissions all by themselves-Ernest Borgnine, Jack Elam, and Strother Martin......You have to see this one just for them!

Mostly I'm going to second other movies mentioned above. The Shootist has a cast that you'll never see again. Steward, Wayne, Lauren Bacall, bit parts by Hugh O'Brien and Richard Boone.

High Noon - A previous poster said he was bored watchin it at the age of 9 - it wasn't made for kids.

Liberty Valance - another film with a western fan's dream cast.

Cat Balou - can't mention this one enough.

In another thread about movies, someone mentioned "Quigley Down Under" - not really a western, about a cowboy sharpshooter in Australia - worth watching. thanks to whoever mentioned it in that other thread.   Oh, yeah, it has Alan Rickman as the villain - that's all the recommendation a movie needs.

The Hanging Tree - Ingrid Bergman and I forget the male lead.

Stagecoach - sadly, I've never seen the original, only the remake, which was still good.

Westward the Women - about mail order brides in a wagon train - a forgotten classic, in my opinion.

Also mentioned above - The Big Country - the poster forgot to mention that it has one of the best musical scores in movie history.

Shane - I didn't see this one mentioned above. What's wrong with you people?

Recently saw "3:10 to Yuma" - should become a classic.

"The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward, Robert Ford" - takes the prize for the longest title around - really really good movie.

Maverick - the movie version of the TV show with Mel Gibson - back before he became annoying.

The Outlaw Josie Wales - best group of supporting characters in any movie.

More later.
