While we are doing other favorites lets do other favorite non spaghetti westerns.

There are not many on my list but two that are a bit different than the run of the mill hollywood westerns that I can watch are "Hombre" with Paul Newman and Richard Boone, and "Mcabe and Mrs. Miller" with Warren Beatty and Julie Christy.

Hombre was spare and gritty Newman is a half breed Apache who just doesn't react like a whiteman to the meanacing Boone (probably his best movie role), Mcabe took place in a Paciffic Northwest mining town in the forest and snow, Beatty is a different sort of anti-hero) a welcome contrast to most westerns, check them out If you never have and let me know what you think.

High Plains Drifter, The Outlaw Josey Wales and Unforgiven.

Ok and my pick for a non-Eastwood Western, hmmm.....  Maybe High Noon and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

I guess I should have stated palatable non  Eastwood westerns, Clint definitely has the edge over anything else, lol.

For me, The Wild Bunch is my favourite non-Spaghetti, non-Clint western, no question.

Favourite non-Spaghetti Clint - Josey Wales.

I like "Nobody" & "Two Mules?, both lightweight  but amusing".
Also have to mention Kelly's Heroes, classic spaghetti western set in World War 2.This movie is in my all time top 10.

Really, once my father sat me down to watch GBU, I lost interest in most classical Westerns. With that said, I will say there are a few out there that I really enjoy. Most of you have touched on themů1. The Magnificent Seven, The Wild Bunch, Butch & Sundance, (I know this is campy and is more a comedy that western but) Support Your Local Sheriff and the Searchers.  As a guilty pleasure I must say, I do enjoy watching Young Guns I, II, Silverado and Tombstone.

jouissance, rent the Hombre DVD if you get a chance and tell me what you think, you may enjoy it!

Before Eastwood one of the coolest actors was Paul Newman.

cigar joe,
you're my compadre. i think you and found the new board at the same time. you have great insights and i trust your advice. i'm going to find it this weekend.

by the way, i'm in trouble... (as mentioned before) i am looking high and low for a widescreen version of THEY CALL ME TRINITY (which is also one of my favorite sw). does anyone know if there is a widescreen dvd out there in region 1. i guess if it is another region that's ok because i have PS2.

Yep, I spaced, Sabata is definitely Spaghetti, directed by Gianfranco Parolini (Frank Kramer) same with Adios Sabata (Indio Black).  And sorry about mis-spelling Valance, I spell much better than I type.
