There's another thread in this forum but that particular thread is from a websites point of view, thus has nothing to do with our opinions so lets here them. Mine are:

1. Dances with Wolves
2. Wyatt Earp
3. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
4. For a Few Dollars More
5. A Fistful of Dollars
6. Once Upon a Time in the West
7. The Outlaw Josey Wales
8. Unforgiven
9. Hombre
10. The Wild Bunch

Theres so many of course, especially from the sixties on. Movies like Nevada Smith, How the West Was Won, Open Range, the rest of Eastwood's that I didn't mention, Little Big Man, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, some of John Waynes movies, others before the sixties, movies like High Noon, Shane, anything really with Gary Cooper, James Stewart and John Wayne, the western genre is our oldest and most cherished genre.

I'm not sure how a thread can be "from a website's point of view," unless maybe (in the case of this site) it's asking about people's favorite Eastwood Westerns. In which case it still wouldn't "have nothing to do with our opinions." Can you put it a little more clearly, Orion?

Some of mine are (in no particular order):

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
Support Your Local Sheriff
Josey Wales
Little Big Man (if that can be considered a western)
High Plains Drifter
and uh....Joe Kidd  :)


Question: Does anyone know the title of an English speaking film where it has all Japanese cowboys? The Indians were Japanese too, as ridiculous as it sounds. I just recall as a youth seeing this film 2 or 3 times. The cowboys, when they'd enter a saloon, would take their boots off and leave them by the swinging doors. I distinctly remember a scene where one of them got dragged into a gunfight in the streets, and he didn't even have time to put his boots on. Don't recall if this was a comedy or what, but if anyone has an idea what the title of this film was, would appreciate if you'd let me know.
