    What Are The Best Western Movies Of All Time?

    My picks:

    The Outlaw Jossie Wales.

    Josey Wales, distraught over the murder his family and soldiering squad, tries to warn Lone Watie to stay away from him: ..."Whenever I get to liking some one they ain't around for long."

    Lone Watie ... "I noticed when you get to disliking someone they ain't around for long neither."


    Pale Rider

    Young Megan, having buried her slaughtered dog, tearfully begs the Lord to protect her and her mother. She reads from the Bible: So I saw, and behold, a pale horse. It's riders name was Death, and Hell followed with him.

    Just then she looks up and in the distance sees a man dressed as a preacher, riding towards them on a white horse.

    I loved the spaghetti ones.
    The Good the Bad The Ugly, Fistful of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More.
    My Name is Nobody (Henry Fonda and Terrence Hill).
    But, the best was Once Upon A Time in the West ( Bronson, Claudia Cardenali=hot chick, Jason Robards and Henry Fonda the villain supreme. The music in this movie is so POWERFUL.

    The very best ones are gettin' pretty old. ElDorado, Shane, The War Wagon, High Noon and The Gunfighter.
    If it ain't funny, it ain't much.

    Of the oldies, "Shane",followed by "High Noon", "Rio Bravo","The Magnificent Seven" and the Eastwood "spaghettis"

    More recently, "Tombstone" was memorable, especially for Val Kilmer's Doc Holliday role. "I'm your huckleberry."

    Hi Tom,

    I love them all. You have some excellent picks also. My favorites have to be The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, The Magnificent Seven, I think Little Big Man? With Dustin Hoffman is a good movie for laughs...

    Regards,

    C.C.~~The Duke is my favorite too.
