Best Western ever made.

How about Lonesome Dove? I have watched this series many times and never get bored of seeing it again. The more I watch it, the more I see!

Great actors:-
Robert Duvall
Tommy Lee Jones
Danny Glover
Robert Urich
Anjelica Huston

If you haven’t see it, give it a look see.

No, most definitely not! I bought that on the rave reviews of an aquaintance, and was sorely disappointed.

Some that spring to mind are, in no particular order:

'A Man called Horse' with Richard Harris

'Little Big Man' with Dustin Hoffman

'Tombstone' purely for Val Kilmer's performance.

'Wyatt Earp' a Kevin Costner western, which managed to avoid being mind numbingly boring.

'Silverado' an underrated movie, with a bit of everything.

'The Outlaw Josie Wales' classic stuff!

High Noon - no question about it.

For me, True Grit. Just the two lines of dialogue:-

"Fill your hand you sonofabitch!"

and

"Get off your horse and drink your milk"

are enough to make it my favourite.

Once upon a time in the West?

The shot with the guys coming over the hill in those dusters, not to mention Cheyenne's speech before he dies about slapping women on the arrse and how they should just accept it...

The Culpepper Cattle Company.

Great movie, no poncing about just grim reality.
Oh, and the whorehouse scene was based on the escapades of MDN in the 'Dam.

As has already been mentioned, it must be High Plains Drifter. How many other films do you get to see the 'good guy' committing rape, murder and wholesale mayhem all in the name of justice!

Hombre
Unforgiven
Heaven's Gate
The Wild Bunch

and The Mission. Not really a proper (horses & 6 guns type) western, but it's in S. America & it's got lots of Indians, so I'm including it. Besides which, it wasn't made by Hollywood, and Hollywood Westerns are as historically accurate as their war films (see relevant thread). Not about saving the Settlers from the Indians, but about saving the Indians from the Settlers.

"You had no choice , Your Eminence. We must work in the world. The world is thus."
" No, Señor Hontar. Thus have we made the world... thus have I made it."

Any film where an old man sits in the corner and cackles, sometimes called Stumpy and sometimes played by Walter Brennan.

The Wild Bunch, worth it for the ending alone.

Bad Day at Black Rock, post WWII western style classic

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, great cast

Blazing Saddles, great spoof of the genre

Shanghai Noon, great twist on the genre

or Cat Ballou ...... Jane Fonda in leather
Have they made one with Jane Fonda in a meat grinder ?
I'd pay a fortune to watch that.
