It's as good as The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. No Blondie, no Tuco and no Angel Eyes but it's still as good? How can that be....?

I was really tempted to throw The Good, The Bad, & The Weird in as my number 2, but decided to stick with traditional westerns.

I think you're insane and/or haven't seen most of the films named, but the addition to the thread is appreciated. 3:10 is worthy of mention, but certainly not the GOAT or even close if you ask me.

I actually have a huge love for For A Few Dollars More. It's probably my favorite closely followed by Rio Bravo and then Good, Bad, and Ugly. Once Upon a Time in the West is very good too once you get past the first half of it. Jeremiah Johnson is a nice one too! I actually really didn't like the Searchers and Unforgiven (which I know are many people's favorites). Also wasn't a big fan of Josie Wales or High Plains Drifter either.

Next on my list to watch is Magnificent 7 and Wild Bunch. Btw, has anyone seen Lonely are the Brave? I've heard it's pretty good.

The Searchers is just a kick in the head at the end.
A movie you can't make up your mind about until the very last scene.

Also the original 3:10 to Yuma is a better movie, it's not as amped up an action movie, but the drama is better.

The original short story for 3:10 to Yuma was written by Elmore Leonard who became more famous for crime novels like Get Shorty and Jackie Brown.

It was also used in a great song about death by Warren Zevon called My Ride's Here which he recorded just before finding out he had terminal cancer.

I was staying at the Marriott
With Jesus and John Wayne
I was waiting for a chariot
They were waiting for a train
The sky was full of carrion
"I'll take the mazuma" *
Said Jesus to Marion
"That's the 3:10 to Yuma
My ride's here..."

The Houston sky was changeless
We galloped through bluebonnets
I was wrestling with an angel
You were working on a sonnet
You said, "I believe the seraphim
Will gather up my pinto
And carry us away, Jim
Across the San Jacinto
My ride's here..."

Shelley and Keats were out in the street
And even Lord Byron was leaving for Greece
While back at the Hilton, last but not least
Milton was holding his sides
Saying, "You bravos had better be
Ready to fight
Or we'll never get out of East Texas tonight
The trail is long and the river is wide
And my ride's here"

I was staying at the Westin
I was playing to a draw
When in walked Charlton Heston
With the Tablets of the Law
He said, "It's still the Greatest Story"
I said, "Man, I'd like to stay
But I'm bound for glory
I'm on my way
My ride's here..."

* mazuma is Yiddish for cash.

That man could write a song.

Also for Western fans, you definitely need to see Red River which is a ridiculously entertaining movie.

For film fans, you should check out virtually any movie by Howard Hawks. He did great Westerns like Red River and Rio Bravo, great film noirs like The Big Sleep, hilarious screwball comedies like Bringing Up Baby and His Girl Friday and even gangster films like Scarface. When the French came up with the theory that the director is more important than the producer of the movie, they had Hawks in mind.

Red River would be a contender for all-time great Western if the ending wasn't such typical Hollywood camp of that time period.

I went out as Blondie for Holloween in college once.

I would throw for contempary stuff out there Brad Pitt's Jesse James as well. That movie is gorgeous.

I wish there were more spaghetti western classics out there that are made to the level of quality Sergio Leone reached with his Man With No Name trilogy and Once Upon a Time in the West. The Italo style is my fave..

The Proposition
The Assassination of Jesse James
3:10 to Yuma

Some of my recent traditional Western faves.

C'era una volta il West is the best one. You can pause that movie at any time and just keep the still as decoration, beautiful.


Django is the best campy western.
