I'm sure no-one saw this coming Posted Image



I searched the forum for a "greatest Western's" list and went back as far as '05 and didn't see any, so I guess with the Yuma and Jesse James buzz, it's good timing.



Let's see your top 10. I'm on a Western kick, so I am hoping this brings out some films I have yet to see. I'll give my personal favorites later.

Neat idea, but it should be in the Polls section. It is a poll afterall. Meanwhile, I only have a couple minutes, but here's a start. Once Upon a Time in the West The Good, the Bad and the Ugly The Claim Unforgiven The Proposition (I think it qualifies) Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid A Fistful of Dollars For a Few Dollars More High Plains Drifter McCabe and Mrs. Miller That's about my best shot, without actually thinking about it.

The Music Part: Emotiva XSP-1, Thiel CS 3.6, Emotiva XPA-2, Marantz SA8004, Emotiva ERC-3, SVS PB-12 Plus 2

Not the biggest fan of the genre, but The Good The Bad and the Ugly is one of my favorite films of any genre. I am not sure I can call the following "favorites" as I've only watched them once or twice, but they are the best westerns I have seen in recent years: For a Few Dollars More High Noon Stagecoach Dances with Wolves The rest is either too remote (Magnificent Seven and many others), enjoyable but not favs (Unforgiven, Liberty Valence, Fistful, Butch Cassidy...) or just plain sucked (Searchers and many others...) -- H
