Clint is the best, but remember all those Dean Martin movies? I can't remember the names, but channel surfing in a shady motel after bird hunting I love a cold one and hose classics.t

This is one scene  that almost everyone remembers  

The Wild Bunch is one of my favorites, as well. As are:   The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance Hombre The Searchers The Shootist Fort Apache The Magnificent Seven S

I love most all of them, but my warped mind tells me I must cast a vote for "Blazing Saddles" with "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" a close second.

“Where da white women at?”

 

How could my also warped mind forget that one as well.

Most of the good ones have already been mentioned.  Some that are underrated but really really good.

 

5 Card Stud with Dean Martin and Robert Mitchem

Big Country with Gregory Peck, Burl Ives, Charlton Heston, and Chuck Connors (Great as a bad guy with all bark no bite). 

Shootist with John Wayne

Sons of Katie Elder (Wayne and Dean)

A bunch of good movies.  I have to throw in a semi-comedy:  Texas Across the River.  Mostly because they used pretty much period correct firearms, Cavalry uniforms. etc.  Otherwise, it's just a comedy.  Slim Pickens in Blazing Saddles was classic, and memorable for me.

I have watched all of the original Lonesome Dove  series so many times I can come close to reciting every line, and the same with Josey, and the rest of the Eastwood films.  Sequels never quite live up to the originals  for me.     There are lots of old westerns on TV daily on my cable, and l seem to always find one I hadn't seen before since l paid a dime to see Hopalong Cassidy on saturday afternoon.   

 

Big fan of Cormac McCarthy so the Sackett movies  and All the Pretty Horses are also favorites.  And even though it is not an old western No Country for Old Men.

Anything Clint.  Also surprised Young Guns hasn't gotten mentioned yet.

The Magnificent Seven is one of my all time favorites. That being said the redo with Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt and Co. is entertaining.

The next western the Coen brothers produce.   Buster Scruggs, True Grit, and likely missed others,  are pretty good fare.
