My list is limited to one film per director, or else it would be cluttered with Lean and Leone films. (Not that there's anything wrong with that, I just think it's fair to give other films a chance.)

Lawrence of Arabia
Once Upon a Time in the West
The Wild Bunch
The Godfather, Part II
The Ruling Class
Battle of Algiers
His Girl Friday
A Man for All Seasons
The Wind and the Lion
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

This is not my philosophy, so I dispense with a Top 10 of my own, which is completely filled with Leone and Hitchcock films.

I was wondering where I would rank High noon on a favorite US western list, so I just updated an older one I made.

Favorite classic American westerns up to 1962. I consider anything that takes place after the Mexican revolution to be a modern western, so it won't be included ie Bad Day at Black Rock.


50 The Tin Star or The Proud Ones
49 North to Alaska
48 Ramrod
47 The Gunfighter
46 Destry Rides Again
45 Duel in the Sun
44 Terror in a Texas Town
43 The Law and Jake Wade
42 Vera Cruz
41 Winchester '73

40 The Ox-Bow Incident
39 The Last Sunset
38 The Furies
37 Devil's Doorway
36 She Wore a Yellow Ribbon
35 Three Godfathers
34 Buchanan Rides Alone
33 Wagon Master
32 Last Train From Gun Hill
31 Warlock

30 Comanche Station
29 Hondo
28 The Sheepman
27 Run of the Arrow
26 The Violent Men
25 Ride the High Country
24 Gunfight at the O.K. Corral
23 The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
22 The Bravados
21 High Noon

20 Cowboy
19 The Naked Spur
18 Day of the Outlaw
17 The Man From Laramie
16 The Tall T
15 Jubal
14 Ride Lonesome
13 Yellow Sky
12 Forty Guns
11 Man of the West

10 Johnny Guitar
09 Seven Men From Now
08 The Magnificent Seven
07 My Darling Clementine
06 Stagecoach
05 3:10 to Yuma
04 Red River
03 Shane
02 Rio Bravo
01 The Searchers


*forgot to include Decision at Sundown, that would be in thee mid-late 30's.

This probably wouldn’t be definitive, but here’s a good shot at it:

5: Waterworld (ahem)

Nothing wrong with Waterworld the directors cut, great Blu-ray as well.

You mean Sierra Madre, not Sierra Leone  ;)

I never sat down to write a list, but from the 16 you mention, the only ones I can see possibly being on my top 20, in addition to the 4 Leone movies you mention, are Double Indemnity, My Darling Clementine, and Red River. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance is a very good movie, a 9/10, but a notch below the all-time greats. It hits you over the head with the theme; My Darling Clementine has a similar theme but manages to get it across without screaming it in your face a hundred times, or even once.

Other candidates for my all-time list (again, I never made an official list, just throwing some titles off the top of my head, in no particular order) : Once Upon a Time in America, Lawrence of Arabia, The Godfather (prefer #1 to#2), A Streetcar Named Desire, Casablanca, Fort Apache, Out of the Past, Stalag 17, A River Runs Through It

Thanks for correcting me. You listed some great movies. I gotta go back and watch Casablanca. I tried watching it also back during my movie marathon. I half paid attention to it so I know I didn't do it justice yet.

Casablanca may well be my #1 of all time, besides Leone’s movies.
