I love most of the movies brought up here already, but I've got to throw a mention to High Plains Drifter, love the supernatural angle infused with a western. and Clint is just such a bad mother ****er in it.

"Ride The High Country".
My favorite Peckinpah movie and precursor to the great "Unforgiven".

"The Great Silence" with Klaus Kinski and Jean-Louis Trintignant has some beautiful scenes in the snow, second only to "Jeremiah Johnson", as far as snow scenes in a Western go.

_ "Little Big Man" is great.

One Eyed Jacks.
Brando allegedly fired Kubrick, but still managed to do a pretty good job.

So many of my favorites already mentioned here. I just got into westerns myself thanks to Red Dead Redemption, so I'm writing a lot of the ones you gentlemen are mentioning down. Thanks.

I saw The Searchers and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid on blu ray this weekend. I have to say both were excellent

I am not much of a fan of John Wayne to be honest. That really is a great film though.

If you haven't seen it, I also recommend Rio Bravo. A perfect movie.
And The Shootist, a great Don Siegel film and another brilliant Wayne performance (his last, I think.)

The Searchers was the first time I saw a John Wayne film and I liked his performance enough to try some of his other films. I watched the trailer for the Shootist , that looks great.

Once Upon a Time in the West has not been mentioned in every post, and therefore is not getting the love it deserves. One of my favourite quotes:

Mortimer: (Talking about Frank sitting behind the desk of a business head) How does it feel?
Frank: Sorta like holding a gun.....only more powerful.

Once Upon A Time In The West is Sergio Leone's masterpiece, and that's saying something when you consider he's got both The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly and Once Upon A Time In America underneath his belt. Everything in OUATITW is incredible, from the fleshed out characters, to the fantastic gun fights, to Leone's famous cinemotography and Morricone's epic score. Love. That. Movie.

And like most brilliant films it works on several levels; there's the genuinely exciting western in there, there's the thematic exploration of death and its inevitability, and beyond that there's the deconstruction and tale of the death of the western.

The Man with the Harmonica is an excellent character too, even inspired. His eerie tune, how every time Frank asks who he is he just gives names of people Frank killed, his ghostly presence as an almost incarnation of death.

I don't even like Westerns that much but OUATITW is in my top ten list of best films.

Yeah, it looks freaking fantastic. If you're gonna replace The Duke, might as well get The Dude.
