Best Westerns


The Art of Manliness has a very good list of the best Western films, but it missed these:

  • "The Appaloosa" (with Marlon Brando, not the inferior recent version)
  • "Arizona" (with a very young William Holden)
  • "3:10 to Yuma" (the Russell Crowe version)
  • "The Ballad of Cable Hogue" (Jason Robards and Stella Stevens)
  • "Monte Walsh" (Lee Marvin and Jack Palance)
  • "Hombre" (Paul Newman and Richard Boone)
  • "Ride the High Country" (Joel McCrea and Randolph Scott)
  • "Lawman" (Burt Lancaster)
  • "McCabe & Mrs. Miller" (Warren Beatty and Julie Christie in a depressing classic)
  • "Winchester '73" (James Stewart)
  • "Jeremiah Johnson" (Robert Redford)
  • "Little Big Man" (Dustin Hoffman and Faye Dunaway)
[Update: I should have given a hat tip to A Large Regular for first mentioning The Art of Manliness List.]

Admittedly I am biased toward Clint - but we need to add in High Plains Drifter and Hang 'Em high here.
