Favorite Western film or novel?
 
I've never had much interest in Westerns, but a few nights ago I saw a commercial for the film "Jeremiah Johnson". It looked interesting. Just wondering if anyone out there is into Westerns (films or books), and if so, which would you recommend?

Thanks!

Probably a tossup between Tombstone, Open Range, True Grit, Quigley Down Under and Dances with Wolves. Lonesome Dove for Western mini-series.

No love for Unforgiven?

Unforgiven with Clint and Morgan Freeman. Hands down best western of all time. Silverado is fun, The Mountain Men is great, The Culpepper Cattle Company is pretty good.

freefall 12-19-2008 05:03 PM

oh yeah, The Good,The Bad and The Ugly is second best western all time.
