    Don't know if it qualifies as a movie since it was a series, but I think Lonesome Dove was about the best ever. And unlike most movies adapted from a book, if you read the book and then watched the movie, you'd say, "They absolutely nailed it. Cast, scenery, everything."

    The Wild Bunch; an absolutely genre changing masterpiece by Sam Peckinpah.

    One of our all-time favorites is also probably the most accurate western ever made: Appaloosa Caution...spoiler ( but gives a great view of what is to come )



    Maybe not as well known, but absolutely one of the best I've ever seen.

    Insider tips: one way to tell if the screen writers and costume folks did their homework is to look at hats. The rolled hat brim is a 20th century Hollywood invention designed to get more light on the actor's face. Hats in real life didn't have rolled brims back then.

    Another more common failing is period correct guns. When you see a western story set in the late 1860's and an actor with an 1873 Colt shooting smokeless powder, you just know there was no one advising anything technical. Rifles are often missed as well.

    Last thing I'll leave about this is saddles. I can't describe the differences, but old saddles look quite different - especially the part you sit on.

    Info worth exactly what it cost you.

    Hard to top any John Wayne movie, too many good ones to pick a favorite. Clint Eastwood's are also tops. For funny westerns (actually a musical, sort of, I guess) Paint Your Wagon (Clint and Lee Marvin...they both actually sing LOL) is just about the funniest western I have seen.

    A friend of mine creates wardrobes for period movies. Getting the details right is a big deal.

    My wife says anything with Sam Elliot. I don't think it has anything to do with the movies though. ;~}
    While not a western, I think his best part was in Mask.

    I like spaghetti westerns. Trinity with Terrence Hill is one of my favorites.
    Blazing Saddles is another on my list of favorites.

    Have seen a number of Audie Murphy movies in the last year.

    Shane, with Alan Ladd, 1952. A great movie and I can see inspirations from it in a lot of the movies already listed.
