Clint definitely belongs in any list of great western movies.  John Wayne was so great that a separate list could be made of his top ten westerns.

High Plains Drifter
The Outlaw Josey Wales
Unforgiven
Gunfight At The OK Corral
Silverado
Tombstone

Maverick
Open Range

My list of top-10 Duke westerns (no order):

Rio Bravo
The Searchers

Thanks Hemlock,

I'm replacing The Quick And The Dead with Open Range.  Nothing to do with your comments, I only recently remembered Open Range.  I can understand your sentiments about those four, though, even Big Jake isn't quintessential Wayne.  I do like Big Jake because my brother and I used to watch it on cable a lot and loved it.

I didn't think that "The Quick and the Dead" was a good movie at all. "Open Range" was a better movie than that.

I still haven't gotten around to seeing Once Upon A Time In The West, The Wild Bunch or The Magnificent Seven.  From what I've heard of these films, I've no doubt they'd find space on my top 10 list.  I also haven't seen Wayne's She Wore A Yellow Ribbon, either...

What  :o :o

How can that be possible ???

Come to think of it I kind of envy you Jed.You got ahead of you to discover these great westerns.

I`ve watched these films so many times but I remeber how impressed I was when I saw them for the very first time.Especially Wild Bunch and Magnificent Seven.
OUATITW took a bit of time before I started think of it as a masterpiece.

Duke`s She Wore A Yellow Ribbon is great but I think Fort Apache is the best one out of the three Ford/Wayne cavalry westerns(FA,SWAYR and Rio Grande)

ps.Open Range is far more better western than The Quick And The Dead ;)

If you are inclined towards Spaghetti Westerns, a couple of great classic ones that will remind you of For a Few Dollars More, and GBU are, Sergio Sollima's The Big Gundown with Lee Van Cleef & Tomas Milian, and Sergio Corbucci's The Mercenary with Franco Nero, Tony Musanti, and Jack Palance.

I'll say this one more time ... then it's off to Off Topic with this thread. ;)
This thread was started in, and allowed to remain in, the "Clint Eastwood Westerns" forum because the original list posted had several Eastwood Westerns on it (even if the author of the list apparently hadn't seen them). If anyone wants to post general lists of favorite Westerns, you are welcome to, but please do it in the Off Topic forum.

My Top 10 have to include GBU, the Dollars movies, Magnificent Seven, Shane, and just today, finished watching (the six hour, made for tv, seven Emmy award winning) Lonesome Dove, with Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Duvall. It definately makes my top 10.

Is that list in order paul muni?

Because in my opinion the two greatest westerns ever made, you have at the bottom of the list.
