This came up on another thread...I thought I would list a few of my favorites and you guys can chip in.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
High Plains Drifter (probably my favorite of all time)
Two mules for sister Sarah
Paint your wagon (I know it's a musical..but it's still good)
Tombstone (classic)
Young Guns and Young Guns II
The good, the bad and the ugly
Outlaw Josey Wells

I won't steal all of the good ones.

I wish I had a dollar for every western I have sat and watched with my Dad.
Good memories...

Prety much all Clint Eastwood's westerns. And a few John Wayne.(The Cowboys and The man who shot Liberty Vallance)

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was good.
(Think ya used enough dynamite there Butch)

I really liked The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. (Hey Blondie)

Also High Plains Drifter. (Talk about painting the town red, literally)

Some old classics---
Stagecoach
True Grit
How the west was won

I liked that new one with Tommy Lee Jones (the title escapes me) where the girls get kidapped to be sold in Mexico and Tommy Lee Jones goes after them.

The recent Tommy Lee Jones movie was "The Missing" and it indeed was a good one.

High Plains Drifter is full of classic quotes.

PREACHER: See here, you can't turn all these people out into the night. It is inhuman, brother. Inhuman!

STRANGER: I'm not your brother.

PREACHER: We are all brothers in the eyes of God.

STRANGER: All these people, are they your sisters and brothers?

PREACHER: They most certainly are.

STRANGER: Then you won't mind if they come over and stay at your place, will ya?


Eastwood was a bad motor scooter in that movie.

Was it "For a Few Dollars More" where Eastwood is a bounty hunter and teams up with Lee Van Cleve to hunt down Bad Man Jose, or was it "A Fistful of Dollars?" I get the 2 mixed up. They both were good though.

Another good one was "The Quick and the Dead" with Gene Hackman and Russell Crowe. Only Sharon Stone could get away with being a bad *** cowgirl.

Did you see the Gunsmoke movies they made long after the tv series ended? Marshall Dillon looked pretty old in them. You had to be a real western movies fan to sit through them, and yes I sat through them.

I have seen them a couple of times...I can't remember the plot of any of them though...sounds like they didn't have much of one.

I don't remember the titles, but one of them was about Dillon quitting the business, and a bad dude comes into Dodge City and tries to take Miss Kitty for his own, then some Festus wanna be jumps on Trigger or Silver or sombodys horse and rides to the mountains to convince Dillon to come back and kick the bad dudes *** and save Miss Kitty.

In the words of Jerry Clower, "Miss Kitty what ran that beer joint on Gunsmoke."

In the words of Toby Keith:

I bet you`ve never heard ole Marshall Dillion say
Miss Kitty have you ever thought of running away
Settling down will you marry me
If I asked you twice and begged you pretty please
She`d of said Yes in a New York minute
They never tied the knot
His heart wasn`t in it
Stole a kiss as he road away
He never hung his hat up at Kitty`s place

Yes Barney himself...

I watch re-runs of Andy Griffith for one reason.......
If I can catch an episode where Floyd the barber and Barney
have an argument...I am done!
Ever see those two go at it?.....Oh it's classic stuff man.

I don't think I ever heard Floyd raise his voice. Didn't Otis want to be Mayor in one episode. Imagine that!

Or was it a fill-in police office.

Otis: "Oh come on Andy, I can do it."

Almost as funny as the time Barney found out Otis was making moonshine up in the hills and nobody believed him...

I never heard Floyd get mad. I think Otis ran for mayor. I liked the one where Andy was trying to leave Barney's place and said his girlfriend teacher had school the next day. Barney said, "You don't have school on the weekends." Andy said, "It's Sunday School!":D

I'm sorry, but I can't believe that we are 3 pages into a "Best Western Movie" thread and nobody has mentioned John Waynes' "The Searchers" yet, widely proclaimed by many movie reviewers as the best ever, and by myself too. My other favorites, not necessarily the "best" movie, but the ones I like to watch, are:

Unforgiven
High Plains Drifter
Sergeant Rutledge
Fort Apache
Silverado
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
Rio Bravo
The Outlaw Josey Wales
Shane
Blazing Saddles
Rustlers Rhapsody (a selfish pleasure)("another whiskey....hold the hair")
The Alamo (The John Wayne one)
almost any of the other John Wayne or Clint Eastwood movies.
