I like about anything with John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Jimmy Stewart or Henry Fonda.

Some of the ones that made the list I have never heard of.

Some don't deserve to be there!

Goodnight, nothing by Joel McCrea or Randolph Scott.

Can't see the link at work, but am hoping it's pretty much all John Wayne movies.

Plus Tombstone. grin

Sorry to say RR BEcca, but only The Searchers and The Man that shot Libert Valance and Eldorado made the list.

I agree, The Cowboys,
Marshal Rooster Cogburn
True Grit
McClintock
Horse Soldiers
She wore a yellow ribbon
The Sons of Katie Elder
Chism
Stage Coach
The Shootest

And so many I can't recall right now.

Not too mention the other actors I mentioned. Loved the Cheyanne CountryClub with Henry Fonda and Jimmy Stewart.

Edit Reason: Added to list and fixed "Dpi like typing"

Not a bad list. But I would have included For a Few Dollars More, Hang Em High, Pale Rider, A Mule for Sister Sarah {y'all can tell I don't like Clint Eastwood very much ;-)}

I'd also have included the Sons of Katie Elder and The Shootist, since John Wayne is right up there alongside Clint

Anything Clint, Wayne and Charles Bronson period.

Stagecoach? The first movie to ever follow 2 plotlines (meanwhile, back at the ranch...)

Don't know that I'd classify Josey Wales as a western, although it is one of my favorite movies...

The Best Western in my town isn't very nice but there is a newer one close by. I don't know if I would classify it as an all time best, but it's probably nice enough.

The best western I've ever had was at Dennys, although this little independent diner close by comes in second.

Best western?? Wish-Bone's Western is my personal favorite.

I find it to be a rich and creamy French dressing that is bursting with a savory blend of tomatoes, onion and garlic flavors. C'est fantastique.
