    How the West was Won (John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, Spencer Tracy, et al.)

    Winchester 73 (Jimmy Stewart)

    The Professionals (Lee Marvin, Burt Lancaster)

    Major Dundee (Charlton Heston)

    Cat Ballou (Lee Marvin, Jane Fonda-Still funny as hell)

    The Wild Bunch (Warren Oats, Ernie Borgnine, William Holden)

    Nevada Smith (Steve McQueen)

    The Magnificent Seven (Yul Brenner, Steve McQueen, et al.)

    Probably a few newer ones, but these are the classics to me.

    Not a weak or poor performance in the entire cast.
    Realistic, gritty, believable.
    My favorite Newman movie.

    JUST HOLD IT RIGHT THERE!

    There is one movie -- ONE MOVIE -- that is on the shelves in every ranch house, bunk house, and single-wide trailer house in the American West. It is THE Cowboy movie.

    It is "Conagher," with Sam Elliot and Katherine Ross.

    Coincidentally, the Mrs. (an impressive cowgirl herself, but that is another story) and I watched it last night. I have to say the story, setting, filming, clothing and equipment leave little to criticize.

    As for story line, it is the "perfect cowboy movie."

    If you've never seen it, then rent it tonight. Better yet, buy it.

    I have to say I like the old and new True Grit. My wife, not a western fan, liked the John Wayne version best. So I guess I'll keep her.

    Some Westerns I like--some have been mentioned:
    Crossfire Trail
    You Know My Name--Sam Elliot as lawman Bill Tilghman
    Open Range
    Both True Grit movies
    Big Jake
    Cahill:U.S. Marshal
    My Darling Clementine--Henry Fonda & Walter Brennan
    Quigley Down Under
    Unforgiven
    The Wild Bunch
    Young Guns 1 & 2
    Blazing Saddles
    Maverick
    Silverado
    The Quick and the Dead--hokey yes but still fun
    Appaloosa--bet carrying that 8 gauge shotgun all day was a chore
    Geronimo:An American Legend
    Last Stand at Saber River--another Tom Selleck western
    The Magnificent Seven
    Death Hunt--my fav Broson movie--kinda at the tail end of the Western era but still a great movie.

    Whatever you do run FAR away from the hands down worst Western I've ever seen--The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford---a more boring movie I've yet to see than this stinker.

    I agree. Always liked Jack Elam.

    Anything with James Arness, Dale Robertson (met him once, very nice guy. Big man, huge hands, heckuva handshake too), and many, many more.

    Here's another that's pretty good: Monte Walsh, with Tom Selleck. Made for TV I think, so might not meet the standard for a classic "hollywood" movie.

    Still like Conagher best of all.

    Fishkiller: keep looking! It might not be popular worldwide, but it is iconic among cowfolk. Elliot is believable, like Wayne was.

    Same can be said of Selleck. Has anyone mentioned "Quigly Down Under?" One of my favorite movies of all.

    ditto! Newman's best movie, bar none. Also liked Lee Marvin in The Professionals and the original Monte Walsh....and Liberty Valance while I'm at it. Heck, liked Lee Marvin in just about anything[^]
