We've had a lotta 'top' 100  lists. Westerns haven't been covered. I LOVE westerns. When I was a kid,me and my brothers yousta play 'Hopalong Cassadiy",because he was on channel 46 all the time. Granted-this was 1972-and very old reruns-but still-importantant movie memories. Hoppy was thee man.

My favorite Western,though....the GOOD the BAD and the Ugly. Hands down.
The score is enough to place it in the classic catagory. Tuko,Angel Eyes....and of course Clint the Squint's finest film. The epitome of cool.

So-what do you cnsider to be the BEST westerns?
I should've put this in the GOOD films section-except Hoppy's films were defintly of the B type....as were a lot of old John Wayne,Roy Rogers,and many other fine western memories-(like Hopalong Cassidy, of course!)
Westerns were considered,at their peak,to be 'programmmers' -sure fire draw ins-much like horror films and gangster movies. An important genre that is sadly lacking today.

2. "Django"

Another Spaghetti Western but one that took Leone's lead and twisted it into something a touch darker. I respect the American Westerns, but the Italians took away the moral compass and painted a more cynical image of the human soul.

3)  The Outlaw Josey Wales.  Just love that movie:  Superb characters, lots of humor, great plot.

4.  The Mercenary

One of the great spaghetti westerns.  This is Sergio Corbucci's best western, in my opinion, and it has one of Morricone's best scores.

I'm glad to see this thread was started off right! Spaghetti westerns are hands down the best westerns ever made.  I could easily fill up the rest of this list, but I'll hold back my enthusiasm.

I gotta agree about spahgetti westerns. So much more gritty...but the Spainish  film-

5. CUTTHROATS NINE

Sadly, the VHS version of this thing is heavily edited from what I can find. But that trailer pretty much shows all the violence from the movie.  I'd love to see a restored, widescreen DVD release of this one.

I more than likely saw the cut version,then. I still enjoyed it...but that would account for some of the continuity problems in the version I saw. I need to see the uncut version! Thanx for the heads up!  Cheers

No.9 - "The Law And Jake Wade" A fine John Sturges western with very good performances by Robert Taylor and Richard Widmark.

Another excellent Spaghetti Western.  Henry Fonda was incredible in that.

12.  The Man who Shot Liberty Vallance-just saw this a couple of weeks ago.

13. Debately a Western but I'll say-The Valley of Gwangi.  Although Beast from Hoolow mountain was first and focused more on the Cowboys, rather than the dinosaurs, Gwangi is better.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
