Time for some lists. Haven't done any of those lately, have I? These are prompted by a discussion on Cowboy's family's chatboard site.

First, here are what I believe are the very
Best Westerns
(not necessarily in any particular order)

The Magnificent Seven
The Searchers
Silverado
Rio Bravo
The Ox-Bow Incident
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
Shane
The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
3:10 to Yuma
Stagecoach
Winchester '73
High Noon

Those are all movies that practically transcend the Western genre, actually. They're not just good Westerns, they're good movies overall.

Here, on the other hand, are
My Favorite Westerns
(in a very particular order)

1. The Sons of Katie Elder
2. The Magnificent Seven
3. Rio Bravo
4. Silverado
5. Tombstone
6. A Fistful of Dollars
7. The Lone Ranger
8. The Mask of Zorro
9. North to Alaska
10. Tall in the Saddle
11. The Rare Breed
12. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
13. Support Your Local Sheriff
14. The Fastest Gun Alive
15. El Dorado
16. The Quick and the Dead
17. Texas
18. Hondo
19. Texas Across the River
20. Maverick
