6. Red River
7. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
8. High Plains Drifter
9. Tombstone
10. Open Range

I'm really surprised that aside from Jim's extra large list, I'm the only one that put High Noon on their list. Its easily my favorite classic western.

I thought about it Brook, but I’ve not seen it in so long, that I decided to let it go this time.

Tombstone
The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

The Quick & The Dead (Sam Raimi dir.)
Young Guns

Open Range
Silverado

I want to check out The Wild Bunch, The Searchers, The Magnificent Seven and Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid
