I'm late to the party so forgive me if it has been mentioned. And I'm not sure if it qualifies as a western, but I watch "Last of the Mohicans" almost every darn time it comes on. Wes Studi is an awesome villain!

For a traditional western, I'd vote for "Tombstone", the most quotable western ever made.

Haha, I know what it is like to get annoyed by such little things. I had to go back to look to make sure I didn't call it "The Unforgiven".

Also, b/c there is a western [film] titled The Unforgiven (1960) with Audrey Hepburn and Burt Lancaster.

But, yes, I am a stickler for titles, especially re: films that I like

I still think The Searchers is the greatest western ever made, but Clint Eastwood must get
honourable mention for some of his westerns. The Outlaw Josey Wales, Forgiven and of
course The Good the Bad and the Ugly. I can still remember when I first saw that film in a
cinema in 1968. The acting, the story, and of course the fantastic music. I remember coming
out of the cinema as a kid, and running down the street avoiding bits of ice on the floor that
winter. It was the begining of a great movie career, and many fantastic movies he made as
actor and director - thanks Clint!!

Did you know the story about his editing role in the first movie "A Fistfull of Dollars" ? Apparently when the Itallians hired him he began reading the script and started tearing out pages and pages of dialogue. He told them all the "Talk" would severely detract from the uniqueness of the film and, of course, the rest is history thanks to his early directorial genius (even thouigh he wasn't the director."

I remember watching movies like The Good the Bad and the Ugly or The Outlaw Josey Wales or The War Wagon first on broadcast TV, all chopped up between commercials and on a 16 by 9 TV screen. Now you can watch these great old movies the way they were meant to be seen and I am so impressed by how much I enjoy watching them now.
I actually found the Good the Bad and Ugly to be confusing partly because the way they chopped it up for TV but not so any more.
thank you. My thoughts exactly.
