What's Your Favorite Western?

Recommended Posts

Carolyn Marie

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 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.

      Well, if dad is paying for it, I guess he has some say so on the issue, but little does he know how fun some Enby's can be.  If he gets to know a few -------- but I guess he won't.  His loss entirely.  I feel bad, but for now you are having the right attitude about it.

      Beautiful photo. In a couple of weeks, it should be sunny like that once the June gloom is gone.

      Naturally, I've been wondering whether there are any entries in the 63 pages (currently) of this thread that involve a Rubber Chicken.   Search claims that to not be the case, but I have my doubts, given the stealthiness of Rubber Chickens, and how friends have surprised me with them! 🙂   Astrid

      (Disclaimer: I am not out to my family because they are against anything LGBTQ related)   So it was a normal family dinner with me and my family sitting down to some dang good soup I'd slaved over today. The topic of conversation? My wedding. Personally, I'd like to get married someday, so I was joking with my brother that because he wasn't being nice to me that he was no longer invited.   Then, suddenly, out of the blue, my father chimes in with: "You can't invite any nonbinary people".   I'm silent out of shock (Because how does he even know that word!?!?!?) The rest of my family are silent, but soon start asking questions.   Turns out, he'd seen on the news today that Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye came out as nonbinary.  I probably should have found it hurtful, or have been scared, but to be honest, I just laughed. Even if it was an inappropriate moment to do so.  Because he said that to me, who identifies as a nonbinary gender. Who would be the one of the two people that the wedding is all about. God, if he knew. 😅 Guess I'm not allowed to be invited to my own wedding anymore!

      In my experience you find good people when you are happy confident and okay being alone. When you are like that it’s like you share the best of yourself. You give off an awesome vibe and people like that. That’s when I’ve always met my long relationships.    Being trans is unfortunately something with negative connotations. So are lots of things. But people find partners that love them for who they are. There are no limiting factors. And you never know who that person could be. So all anyone can do is live. Be yourself and be your best. And not worry about it. I’d hate to be sad about it forever just waiting. I’d just go live life. And be me.

      Good evening from here, sipping coffee after dinner, tastes great, and glad to be home after 13 days on the road down and up the west coast. Here is a pic I took from across the marina in SD and hotel complex I stayed at in the background...

      Litha (midsummer, summer solstice) approaches. This Saturday, the sun will be at its strongest, longest day.    The full moon Esbat is now, tonight.    Which means that the representative full masculine power of God (summer solstice)and the representative full feminine power of God (Full  moon)  will be the closest they come together astronomically and astrologically this year.   My mind has moved in interesting directions over the past few days.  The goddess calls...   Will attend a Litha Fire festival this weekend to celebrate.

      By all means stop looking, but do not put words into other people's mouths. I've heard all 4 of those lines too, along with the classic, "it would feel weird being more than friends with you" and a few others.  Just enjoy being yourself, if you do not think you are worth the time why should anyone else? (a lesson I have recently learnt/still learning).   I'd bet you have plenty of good qualities, heck get some cats if you have really given up on people - but if you are strong enough to transition then you are strong enough to find more to look forward in your life than just skipping to the end of the book.
