Default Westerns...

My Name Is Nobody is an acquired taste and pretty bizarre, which is why I like it a great deal. Once Upon A Time In The West is one of my favorites as well as The Wild Bunch. I've only read one western novel but it blew me away and that was Blood Meridian, by Cormac McCarthy. That was an amazing book...

Man the list is just too long for me!

Let's see:

- The Man with No Name Triliogy (Fist Full of Dollars, A Few Dollars more, and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly)
- The Magnificant Seven
- Once Upon the Time in the West
- Tombstone
- High Noon
- Unforgiven
- 3:10 to Yuma (the original)

and many, many more. . .

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Tombstone, Unforgiven, and I'm going to include The Proposition even though it is based and filmed in Australia.

A good western movie is Compaņeros. Look into it. Jack Palance 'nuff said.

You nailed my list, however, John Wayne in The Cowboys was one of mine.

Love Big Jake.

Others that I just can't get enough of: The Searchers, The Sons of Katie Elder, Rio Lobo, The Big Country, The Magnificent Seven, McClintock (John Wayne's only comedy), Rio Bravo, Shane, pretty much anything that John Ford and John Wayne did together.

<--- Duh.... that's my favorite book to, along with the Cormac McCarthy stuff and Larry McMurtry. JAMES MICHENER rocks history. Zane Grey's great, I grew out of Louis L'Amour books when I was in the seventh grade, but still enjoy a few, though you know what the book is going to be like before you even read it.
Tom Selleck, Sam Elliot, they make great films. I loved Jeremiah Johnson. And too much else to mention...
