Coupl'a very excellent flicks left out of this discussion so far.  The Professionals and The Magnificent Seven.  What's wit yu folks any way?  Probably the best of them all is The Searchers w/John Wayne.

Gotta be Chisum! I also like Ben Johnson in anything. Best supporting western actor. After visiting Lincoln county NM you understand why they would fight for control of the county. Val Kilmer as Doc has got to be one of the best acting jobs any western ever saw. And finally Gene Hackmans arrogants in The Quick and the Deadwas also Great!

My vote is for The Magnificent Seven.  It's my favorite movie, period.  Course anything with the Duke in it is worth mentioning.  Wish there was another star coming up to join those ranks and really put the western out front again.

Have to think awhile.  For comedic western, I like Blazing Saddles, & Silverado.  For more serious fare:  Quigly, The Unforgiven, The Sackets, Shadow Riders, Quick & Dead w/S. Elliot, Monty Walsh, The Cowboys, The Shootist, and others too numerous to list; or is it cause I can't remember the titles.....

I'm a little late to this party, sorry! Any John Wayne movie, but especially The Cowboys. Maybe cause the first time I saw it  (when it came out) I was the age of the boys in the movie. Also love The Shootist, but I cry every time I watch it.  Several people mentioned Shane as one of their favorites...but I hated the movie. I absolutely loved the book and had read it many times before I got to see the movie, back in the days before video tapes, and was so disappointed when I sat up late one night to watch it. I like Alan Ladd in other movies, but he was blond and I'd always seen Shane as dark haired, like the cover of the paperback I wore out...with a price of 45 cents on it...got it from a neighbor who knew I loved westerns  Smiley

My favorites are:

Silverado
Magnificent Seven
Bad Girls
Young Guns
Wagons East
Blazing Saddles
Pale Rider
El Dorado

My favorite TV series is Young Riders.  Too bad they dont sell it on DVD Cry

Oddly enough, movie producers consider Once upon a time in Mexico and Desperado as "Westerns". Huh
