Has anyone mentioned Rustler's Rhapsody yet? Really funny comedy western with Tom Beringer, Merilu Henner, Andy Griffith (as the bad guy no less!) and others. Great movie.

[QUOTE=Steel_Talon;
The Outlaw Josey Wales (I recommend reading the 2 books)


Absolutely read the books. The movie is based on the book " Gone to Texas" by Forrest Carter. The sequel to the book is "The Vengeance Trail of Josie Wales" Also by Forrest Carter. I wish he had written a series based on these characters, instead of just 2.

A few more that I thought were worth noting:

The Big Country,,, Gregory Peck, Charleton Heston, Burl Ives and many more,
Monte Walsh,,,, Lee Marvin and Jack Palance,
New Riders of the Purple Sage,,, Ed Harris did an excellent portrayal of Lassiter in my opinion.
And the movie that most likely inspired the Magnificent Seven, the Japanese film Seven Samurai,,, kimonos instead of cowboy hats, katanas for colts,, a great flick.

John Wayne, El Dorado 1966.
Henry Fonda, Sometimes a Great Notion 1970. I belive where the saying "From my cold dead hands" came from.
Le Marvin, Jack Palance, Monte Walsh 1970
Just a few I like

Firefly Best western ever. Stupid Fox killed it after one season. I have never watched another fox program since.
