Please list what you think is the greatest western of each decade. Remember, you can only pick one for each decade.

Good list. I think you mean "Unforgiven", though. "The Unforgiven" is an Audrey Hepburn movie :o



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

Also, don't forget the 00's! I know this decade is not finished, but you can add what you think your best of the 2000's is so far.

  That's the problem, this decade has been dead as far as westerns. This is the Superhero CGI decade. And I'll be damned if I'm putting Brokeback Mountain on my list.

I really like HEAVEN'S GATE, the longer the version the better. Walken is incredible in it, and it's worth watching just for the roller skating dance scene alone. It's true that at it's heart Kristofferson is bloody awful (as in John Hurt) but it's easily the only Western of that decade which still retains anything of interest.

Greatest westerns by decade is a bit restrictive,what about by year?
