That brings to mind "LAWMAN" with Burt Lamcaster. Somewhat remote, but a prelude to the adult western genre. Well done

Maybe not the greatest, but my favorite, and not mentioned here, is "The Shootist." It's my favorite John Wayne movie as well.

What, exactly, are the defining criteria for a "Western"?

Would pictures like these qualify as Westerns:

"Milagro Beanfield War",
"Dead Man"
"Baghdad Cafe"
"Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada"
"The Grey Fox"

I think two of the greatest westerns that John Wayne ever starred in were True Grit and The Shootist.
True Grit starred, John Wayne, Glen Campbell, Kim Darby, Robert Duvall, and Dennis Hopper.

The Shootist starred, John Wayne, Lauren Bacall, Ron Howard, Jimmy Stewart, Richard Boone, Hugh O'Brien, Harry Morgan, John Carradine,and Shereee North.

Dead Man is a GREAT film; definitely deserves an honorable mention

Definitely The Wild Bunch. I was also somewhat fond of Big Jake.

Look for the movie " The Culpepper Cattle Company". Its not well known and has a fairly obscure cast but the ending has a shootout I'd rank as one of the ten best of all western shootouts. Top 5 even.
I'm also a fan of " The Three Amigos" for a comedy western.
