What's Your Favorite Western?

76 posts in this topic

I don't think this topic has come up before. Yes, I do and always have loved western movies. There is just something about them that stirs my imagination and longing for adventure and wide open spaces. The true American adventure story.

My top three, in no particular order, are:

Lonesome Dove (yes, it was a television miniseries, but so what? It's probably one of the greatest westerns ever made)

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

The Searchers

I could easily name another half dozen, but lets see what you all come up with. Yeeee haaaa!

The remake of True Grit was really good.

Did you say Lee Marvin?

Carolyn Girl, Lacey's time machine is taking her back to ... 1967!!!

LEE MARVIN ...Ernest Bornine ... Charles Bronson ... John Cassavetes ... Jim Brown !!!

Lee was The Main Mammajamma of that badbutted crew, as you will recall, oh, aging one. :thumbsup:

Jim Friggin' Brown !!!

Lacey remembers watchin him play football watching games on TV with the old man ... back in the early 1960s. One time, four huge tackles, FOUR OF 'EM, pounced on Jim Brown to tackle him. This were BIG dudes, over 270 pounds each. Jim Friggin' Brown kept truckin' with four huge dudes on his back and hanging on to him! We say his feet haulin' butt carrying these guys down the field! He ran many years carrying these guys until they finally brougth him down. In his day, Jim Brown was the baddest of the bad on the gridiron.

Okay, golden girls, who remembers Ray Nitschke and penis Butkus?!?

Oh, my! I'm SOOO off topic, aren't I? Sooorrreeeee !!!

Carolyn! See what ya made me do? Flashback City, babes! Dang, I LOVE it!

Thanks! Ya made my day! Happy Holidays!

Ok, I am a Eastwood fan, make no mistake and I love Charles Bronson's westerns also, but my favorite western is 'Tombstone'. Can't help it. Val Kilmer's portrayal of Doc Holiday was just too dang cool.

For me there are lots of memories af hanging out in the hills behind the house with my friends, big bonfire going, a swiped bottle of real Tombstone Whiskey, playing poker with a shot in the pot and the losers had to say a quote from a western movie while the winner drank up.

One of the 'baddist' of the bad guys was Jack Palance in Shane - barely spoke as Wilson, the hired gun - Alan Ladd played Shane.

Remade as Pale Rider with a few changes but Eastwood was the reformed gunslinger and the bad guy was John Russel.

I also love Silverado.

Love ya,

Sally

I love Westerns, though I feel like I can't say that somehow, because most of the Westerns I've seen and love are the Italian "Spaghetti Westerns" or the ever-depressing existential/revisionist Westerns. The ones I have in my collection are: The Dollar Trilogy (A Fistful of Dollars, etc.), The Great Silence, The Proposition, The Hired Hand, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Unforgiven, High Plains Drifter, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Joe Kidd, Once Upon a Time in the West, and (if it counts) Blazing Saddles.

Guess I am the oddball here. As for some reason I just can not stand westerns at all. Not sure why though.

I'm not exactly a Western sort of person, but I loved the Young Guns movies.

I am a big fan of westerns and it would be difficult to narrow this vast genre down to three. What comes to mind is:

The Shootist

Silverado

Open Range

I am an Eastwood fan any of his spag westerns rate high. John Wayne is the epitomy of the western actor. But lets not forget Yul Brynner:

The Magnificent Seven

I would be very hard pressed to pick a favorite.

The Magnificent Seven would be right up there at the top.

Any western with the Duke.

There were just so many classic westerns.

The Magnificent Seven is the U.S. version of The Seven Samuri and a great memory. On my birthday my mom gave me money to take my friends to a Disney movie but we saw the magnificent seven instead, except for one guy whowent home because he told his mom it was a Disney.

Aslo the classics The Oxbow Incident Fonda and Stewart, and Cooper in the Hangin' Tree.

More modern Once Upon a Time in the West.

Ok so I'm an old girl who grew up on westerns.

For me, it's Unforgiven. I cried at the end of that. I was riding my motorcycle home from the theatre and had to pull over I was crying so hard.

I also love Once Upon A Time In The West and Silverado and just about any of Sergio Leone's westerns with Clint.

And, for laughs, Blazing Saddles and Ruster's Rhapsody.

I've got the end title music on a CD, and it nearly brings me to tears. I love that music, which I believe Eastwood composed.
