Not mentioned...

I've always enjoyed "How the West was Won" in all its "3-strip Cinerama" splendor...

A typical Christmas movie for me :) its 3 strip cinerama looks really weird on modern TVs.

What about me?

I didnít count Giu La Testa as a western. It would be in my top 10 if I did.


Agree.

Hmm, I don't agree. In the end Giu la testa is definitely western (but also a war film), but never in any top 10 of mine. (... but wait, hey ...  it is in my top 10 of Leone films though). Giu la testa has a lot to offer, but also some heavy flaws. Theonly Leone western with a disappointingly directed ending.

And How The West Was won, not a great film, but much better than this overblown kind of a conformist mainstream western should be. Hathaway's enthusiastic directing saves a lot. 6/10

If we are counting films that are not clear cut westerns, but have western elements, i would have The Treasure of the Sierra Madre in my top 10 or 15 westerns...

Yeah, I don't see how A Fistful of Dynamite isn't a western.

For me, my rule of everything set in the old west that takes place before or during the Mexican Revolution is a western. Everything that takes place after is a modern western.

Companeros, A Fistful of Dynamite, A Bullet for the General, etc = westerns
Bad Day at Black Rock, The Treasure of Sierra Madre, Lonely Are the Brave, etc = modern westerns

Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre. What did you think of the script?

After seeing The Great Silence, my list got shook up at the top.  Here is my revised top 5 of all time.  My Darling Clementine jumps one spot over The Oxbow Incident.  The rest of my top 20 stays the same with the exception of The Fastest Gun Alive dropping off into honorable mention because of the inclusion of The Great Silence to my list.

1.  The Great Silence
2.  Once Upon a Time in the West
3.  My Darling Clementine
4.  The Oxbow Incident
5.  High Noon
