I thought that if there was any discussion of classic Hollywood westerns it should have it's own thread so we don't have 100's cropping up. In starting it off I thought that I post all the classic non Italian westerns in my collection and you guys could do the same and also discuss specific films that you love.

My Classic Western Collection

The Big Trail
The Plainsman
Dodge City
They Died With Their Boots On
The Ox-Bow Incident
My Darling Clementine
Tall In The Saddle
Red River
Whisperin' Smith
Winchester '73
Stagecoach
Fort Apache
3 Godfathers
She Wore A Yellow Ribbon
Rio Grande
The Searchers
Seagent Rutledge
Cheyanne Autumn
High Noon
Shane
Bend Of The River
The Far Country
The Man From Laramie
7 Men From Now
Rio Brave
No Name On The Bullet
The Magnificent Seven
Dallas
Springfield Rifle
Hang Em High
The Commancheros
North To Alaska
The Undefeated
The Naked Spur
The Cheyanne Social Club
Firecreek
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
The Son's Of Katie Elder
El Doraldo
True Grit
The Shootist
Ride The High Country
The Wild Buch
The Ballad Of Cable Hogue
Pat Garett and Billy The Kid
Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid
Unforgiven
Tombstone
Open Range

Admittedly are perhaps a bit too modern to be included in the classic canon. There are quite a few more I would like to own, quite a few not out on DVD yet and should be out soon. My top ten favourites out of that bunch are:

The Wild Bunch
The Searchers
My Darling Clementine
Shane
The Naked Spur
The Far Country
Stagecoach
High Noon
3 Godfathers
Red River

Whats you guys favourites?

So this is thread is like a sticky or what? I noticed that no matter what new posts there are on other threads this one stays at the top.

I kind of prefer the 100s of separate threads actually, but whatever.



My classic hollywood western collection:

The Searchers
Stagecoach
Fort Apache
Three Godfathers
She Wore a Yellow Ribbon
Ride the High Country
The Wild Bunch
Pat Garrett And Billy the Kid
The Ballad of Cable Hogue

Not much, I know.

I love all those movies I own (except maybe She Wore A Yellow Ribbon which I just like)

I'm not as avid about buying AW's as SW's because I can just get AWs from netflix anytime.  I will admit... those movies are all gifts (the John Wayne-John Ford Film Collection and Sam Peckinpah's Legendary Western Collection) from my last birthday and last christmas.

The only Peckinpah film i've seen is Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (to be expected I suppose) and I hear that it can't really be considered a western, even though its opening scene might convince you that it is till you get to the part where the mob leaves the hacienda.  So I assume it's certainly not one of the films in Sam Peckinpah's Legendary Western Collection since it's not on your list.

Also some news on recent DVD releaes, Fox in R1 has released Jesse James (1939), Return of Frank James and The True Story of Jesse James to coincide with the upcoming film The Assasination Of Jesse James, a trailer for which can be found in the Peckinpah set. Rumours are that the PQ has something seriously wrong with it on the first two releases. Will keep you updated on it when I hear more.

My latest purchase. Script by Dalton Trumbo under a pseudonym. Best duel in the street finale ever.

looks interesting, Sterling Hayden is usually a good indicator of an entertaining film (and yes I think Johnny Guitar is entertaining)

Know what's an even better indicator of an entertaining film? A man carrying a whaling harpoon to a gunfight.

Nope, but I've seen Bring Me The Head of Alfredo Garcia and I loved it.  I don't think it's as good as The Wild Bunch or Ride the High Country, though.

I have yet to see Straw Dogs or The Getaway.

  A Susan George fan and you haven't seen Straw Dogs?  Definitely a Peckinpah film worth checking out.
