The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. I like just about all of those old spaghetti westerns.

Post Some of mine...UPDATED Aaron Scott
First, I cannot vouch that there isn't any untoward content. If so, I likely fast-forwarded, but overall, if I recall correctly, these are all pretty good movies (though I would think probably for adult consumption). Listed below, in no particular order. However, while all of these are good movies, the ones in bold are particularly good, I think.




The Call Me Trinity & Trinity is Still My Name. The Trinity movies (there may be a third) are by FAR the funniest cowboy movies I've ever seen--outstanding story of two brothers who are called the right and left hand of the devil (due to their speed). They love-hate each other, can eat, drink, fight, gamble anyone under the table.

3:10 to Yuma (the newer one)

Open Range

Broken Trail


Lonesome Dove (all of them)

Hostiles

The Ballad of Lester Scruggs

The Ballad of Lefty Brown

Jeremiah Johnson

Pale Rider

Longmire (TV series--modern sheriff in Wyoming with cowboy sensibilities)

Unforgiven

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

City Slickers

Dances with Wolves

The Way West (have not seen, but the book is excellent)

How the West Was Won

Tombstone

The Magnificent Seven (Denzel Washington version)

Appaloosa

Young Guns (all of them)

Silverado

True Grit (both of them)

The Lone Ranger (with Depp--was talked down, but I liked it a lot!)

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

The Homesman (not a happy ending, but still a great movie)

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

Giant

Any list without Lonesome Dove at the top is a cry for help.


Aaron, your inclusion of "Buster" Scruggs reminds me of my favorite 2 minutes in a "western", the "Surly Joe" routine, leaves me with a stitch in my side every time.

Lonesome Dove
Gunsmoke (all of 'em)
Rawhide (most of 'em)
I even liked 'Wanted Dead of Alive', Ponderosa, and Big Valley.
Any one coming from Louis Lamore. Smile

Since I cannot hear 'em any more, I read 'em.

I had to come back and put that at the top. I did like it.

Post In Medicine Bow, Wyoming... Aaron Scott
In Medicine Bow, Wyoming, which is about as small of a town as you can have, there is an historic hotel called "The Virginian." It was built, I seem to recall, in the early 1900s. It was named "The Virginian" because in Owen Wister, the author of "The Virginian," opened his novel with a scene in Medicine Bow, Wyoming.

When I became fascinated with that place (a visit brought on only because the next place to eat was about two hours away, and my wife, though not knowing this, figured we'd better eat while we could), my wife and son purchased the "The Virginian" novel and a book of Wister's short stories for me for Christmas--and I was delighted!

To my knowledge, I've never seen the TV show, nor the movies, about "The Virginian. But the book is outstanding.
