The Outlaw Josie Wales, Quigley Down Under, Tombstone, Open Range, Lonesome Dove, and there's one more w/Robert Duvall and I can't think of the name of it....But those are my favorites....WhiteWolf

In the novel department, there was a series when I was a kid, a redhead woman and her Japanese sidekick, tons of sex and violence, they were around in the 80's. I think the woman owned a ranch. Any clue?

I can't believe that only one person has mentioned High Plains Drifter!!!

This is the greatest western of all time. I will be honest in saying that I am generally not a fan of the genre but I was a captive audience to this movie one day and was awed by the film.

Not really a western at all but more of a kick ace revenge film that just happens to have a backdrop of a western town. I especially enjoyed Clints utter lack of respect for the local yokels and the whole painting the town red (literally) rules!!!

Thanks for reading...

The Magnificent Seven is probably my #1 choice. How can you beat a lineup like Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, James Coburn, Robert Vaughn, Eli Wallach, and Charles Bronson? Here is a link to the trailer.

Other favorites would include Rio Bravo, Big Jake, Silverado, Open Range, Tombstone, and Hang'em High.

And why no respect for The Wild Bunch?? And how about The Missouri Breaks??
Going South was also pretty damn good. When you get down to it, anything with horses in it is probably going to be better than average. Anybody remember Once Upon a Time In The West? And, Support Your Local Sheriff. And the beginning of Will Penny where Charlton Heston whups the crap out of the young dude with his hat, that was classic. If you don't remember these, i pity you, you missed a lot.

I love The Alamo. Both the John Wayne version and the new Billy Bob Thorton version.

Quigley Down Under, Tombstone are my two.

Never been a big western fan. Just didn't do it for me as movies go or books go. My grandfather read every single Louis Lamour book ever published 3 times I think. But then again he was a real cowboy too. Driving cattle from northern ca down south for sale and slaughter.
