The Dollars Trilogy + Once Upon A Time in the West  are my favorites, after those 4 comes The Magnificent Seven, then we get into the Boetticher, Aldrich, Ford and Hawks stuff, not to mention some Wise and Walsh.


More feeling.

i can't choose between the three...
high noon
outlaw josey wales
the searchers

i know you're all gonna bash me for this but i decided to disclude all spagetti's, but if i didn't keoma would be above all non-leone westerns

Did i really ever say that^

Once Upon A Time In The West is the best movie of all time as far as i'm concerened... but high noon/Keoma/Ride The High Country/Dollars Trilogy follow as far as westerns go...

  Outside Leone here, I can say "Josie Wales" I like quite a bit!  ;D The B&W "Gunfight at the OK Corral" is pretty good too,

  Oh, ..how about "Silverado"?  ::)

It may surprise a few people here since my choice hasn't been mentionned yet!

"Tombstone" is my all-time non-Leone favorite western!

 "Tombstone" is quite good indeed. The visuals, writing and buildup make it easily better western than of the Hollywood norm.
  Val K. does an amazing Doc! Sam E. is quite decent as well. Kirk R., somehow, didn''''t quite make me think he was Wyatt quite as I wanted him to be. However, I do know he tried well.
   I recently moved to AZ. about 9 months ago, and have yet to visit the real Tombstone, but I surely find the time soon.
   But, yep, good one there, Picabo.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

"This is the West, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend."

yeah, just to clarify, i think Liberty Valance is the best Non-Leone Western.
worry not, i think Once Upon a Time in the West is, well, the Best!!!

I''''d like to see John Stuges''s  "Hour of the Gun" (1967) again.  James Garner as Wyatt Earp, Jason Robards as Doc Holliday, Robert Ryan as Ike Clanton, was a good flick about Tombstone, my only problem with Kurt Russel & Val Kilmer is that they are somewhat light weights and are quite up to being "Iconic".

Just saw Red River... and i can say it is by far the best non-leone western... actually i''d say it''s the second best western period behind OUATITW... YES even better than GBU.

You fogot "Shane", guys!

This piece of has a much deeper meaning than it first appear to have. Apparently, Shane (Allan Lad) could be a man from beyond this world (an angel?) or perhaps he is already dead?
And do not forget the the famous framing of Shane between a dear''s leg in the opening scene.

Red River, what were you smokin'' or drinking, I couldn''t even bring myself to sit in front of it for very long, John Wayne and Montgomery Cliff, better than GBU,  ::), JW going throught his same old same old, though I did notice that Leone got the coyote howl from this film. I watched too much Rawhide in the 50''s.

Shane is ok but a bit too much melodrama with the kid, why don''t we bring a pet deer into it too. Best part of Shane is the shoot out, lol.

 8) hola amigos. well, the greatest western ever? simple - THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY, closely followed by THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN. if I were to choose a third? THE ROAD WARRIOR... I think that is a viable entry.  ;)
