Not mentioned...

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

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

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?
