@dxs GA. I loved Gene Wilder’s story in that movie about being a gunfighter and having a little kid call him out. He turned away and “The little bastard shot me in the ass.”

The Good The Bad and The Ugly
The Searchers
Winchester 73

Too numerous to list, but here are four of ‘em, pard: Rawhide (the movie, not the TV series), The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Shane, The Naked Spur and any of Jimmy Stewart’s or Randolph Scott’s ‘50s westerns.

I just mentioned this here recently in another Q. about favorite westerns.

Hands down, the 90’s film “Tombstone” with Val Kilmer, Kurt Russel and Sam Elliot. Best modern western in years.

ucme's avatar

It was my question which dealt with favourite cowboy portrayed in a western, slightly different.

True Grit
The Cowboys
Pale Rider
BIG JAKE (can’t believe it hasn’t been mentioned yet)
Hang ‘Em High
Cheyenne Social Club

All time best: Unforgiven by a longshot for me.

Coloma's avatar

@Jonesn4burgers Oh yeah, “The Cowboys”, I just watched that on Netflix recently after decades. great movie. Funny side note, when I was traveling in asia a few years ago a John Wayne movie came on TV with Mandarin subtitles, hilarious. He was slinging back a shot at the bar and the dialogue was all mandarin. lol

Shane. My dad absolutely loved this movie.

The Outlaw Josey Wales.
@Josie is someone’s misspelling of Josey, my “warrior” nickname. Long story.


KNOWITALL's avatar

What @ucme and @WillWorkForChocolate said exactly. They have good taste. :)

Add The Quick and The Dead with Sharon Stone, too.

Pachy's avatar

@Jonesn4burgers, one of my favorite bits in “Cheyenne Social Club” is Fonda talking Stewart’s ear off as they ride to Cheyenne under the opening credits.

fundevogel's avatar

Not really any cowboy movies here, but these are my favorite westerns:

The Proposition
3:10 to Yuma
Django Unchained

Psst @WillWorkForChocolate and @KNOWITALL are we talking the snap-zoomingest revenge flick? Cause I quite like that one too.  I appreciate it’s complete lack of subtlty :)

KNOWITALL's avatar

@fundevogel Heck ya, that’s it, it rawks!!! I almost forgot Django, a little too graphic on the language and blood for me, but interesting and powerful.

flutherother's avatar

The Good the Bad and the Ugly.
High Noon.
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@fundevogel Yes!!! Love that movie.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate I’m a straight chick and I’ll admit Sharon Stone is HAWT in cowgirl garb- lol

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Yes, she really is. I’m not a huge fan of hers, but in that movie, she turns me on! Kind of like Geena Davis in Cutthroat Island.

Jonesn4burgers's avatar

@Pachyderm_In_The_Room, that chatter is my favorite too. The movie is so cute though .Jimmy Stewert is a master of the straight face, and that really makes it. Would you happen to know what western Fonda was in, I think Stewert was with him in it too, somebody held his hand, and shot it at point blank, the camera zoomed in on his face. I can’t remember the movie, but that image still gives me chills!

Unbroken's avatar

Desperado hasn’t been mentioned yet.

I’ll throw my name with some of the others. The good bad and the ugly, tombstone, cool hand Luke, django unchained.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I can’t believe no one has mentioned The Three Amigos.

filmfann's avatar

@KNOWITALL I usually love your posts, but The Quick And The Dead has one of the worst endings for a western ever. You might as well had mentioned the Terror of Tiny Town, or Billy the Kid Vs. Dracula.

Pachy's avatar

@Jonesn4burgers, yes I know that movie well. It’s a great one called The Man from Laramie directed by Anthony Mann, who directed all of Stewart’s great westerns in the ‘50s. Here is a list of ‘em. (Fonda wasn’t in it, though.)

As he did in the scene you shooting mentioned, Stewart was amazing at emoting pain. He used the same technique in several movies, including “Rear Window.”

TheRealOldHippie's avatar

All the Clint Eastwood Westerns, especially Pale Rider and The Outlaw Josey Wales.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Evil Roy Slade with John Astin.

The Mel Gibson re-make of “Maverick.”

Just about any James Garner Western.

Many, many others. And just because it’s campy as hell, William Shatner’s Western epic, “White Comanche.” If you haven’t seen this, you really owe it to yourself to watch it. And keep some Kleenex handy because you’ll need them wipe away the tears from laughing so much!!

Jonesn4burgers's avatar

@TheRealOldHippie I can’t believe I left out James Garner! I have Support Your local Sheriff. I need to add Support Your Local Gunfighter. (He was a natural as the origonal Maverick.) Good call!.

DAVEJAY100's avatar

Shane, Gunfight at OK coral, and High.noon of the oldies, then Tombstone a close fourth. Val Kilmer was a brilliant Doc Holiday in that.

@DAVEJAY100 I’ll be your Huckleberry. haha
