"Deadwood" is one of my favorites, too. Too bad Ricky Jay didn't get to show off anything on the series. I read recently that HBO is limiting the show to three seasons instead of the four that the creator originally envisioned -- that sucks..

I will be very saddened when it ends. Darn them for cutting off my fix.

It isn't a classic, and probably not that well-known, but I loved "Lightning Jack." This comedy is a western for people who don't like westerns. It's really funny and the acting is great!

"Lonesome Dove" starring Tommy Lee Jones, Robert Duvall, Danny Glover, Angelica Houston (and a host of other good actors) is one of my alltime favorites. "The Shootist" with John Wayne and Ron Howard is also a favorite of mine. I'm a baby boomer and westerns on the boob tube and cinema where a part of my youth as I was growing up. Any movies starring John Wayne or Clint Eastwood are considered favorites with me.

Lonesome Dove is my favorite western. It seems to be the most realistic of the bunch.

Excellent list!

I forgot about "A Man Called Horse". powerful stuff there as I recall.

Thanks, I love Westerns. Yes, a man called horse is a very good movie, and powerful. Especially when he takes his "Sun Vow" OUCH!!

LITTLE BIG MAN would also have to go on that often over-looked list.

I remember "The Adventures of Brisco County Jr."! I was pretty young at the time, so I don't know if I'd like it today, but I remember thinking it was pretty cool at the time.

I must admit I have a soft spot for westerns.

I only recently saw “The Searchers” and I agree, it’s one of the very best!

Wasn’t The Shootist Wayne’s last movie? If that’s the case, what a way to go!

High Noon & Shane is usually hailed as the best westerns ever, and Eastwood remade Shane as Pale Rider.

Jeremiah Johnson, Oh yes!

The Wild Bunch , my favourite Sam Peckinpah western!

Little Big Man is an epic!
And while we’re talking Indians (or is native Americans more PC?) what about Dances with wolves?

Lonesome Dove, another masterpiece.

Of course, Open Range and Unforgiven are both great.

The Long Riders, anyone?

My vote is definitely for "Matalo !"( Kill him in spanish ), a Italian production : imagine a unwilling parody of Sergio Leone with no dialogues, unpleasant actors, nonsensical plot line. One of the worst movies I've ever seen, not only western.

WHAT! You didn't love an all-signing, all-dancing Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin? !!!

Worst western ever...Hmmm... The Quick and The Dead. Sharone Stone and Leonardo Decaprio try to out-pretty each other in the old west.

I'm sorry, but Paint Your Wagon still makes me laugh my a** off! The bad singing by Eastwood just makes it funnier. And I thought Marvin's growling/singing fit his character perfectly.

Was Little Big Man mentioned by anyone? I loved that movie.
