Here's some you all can check out if you have never saw them?

Johnson County War
Seraphin Falls
Rio Diablo
High Noon (remake)
Cheyene Warrior

All were semi-low budget films but with good acting, story lines and unexpected ending, which to me all adds up to a high quality western. Enjoy!

I couldn't think of any, and I didn't see any on anybody's list that I was classify as a better than average movie, except Maybe Butch and Sundance.

If I had to pick one, I think I'd go with Richard Frarnsworth's "The Grey Fox"

I thought Blazing Saddles was a very overrated movie, and only Woody Allen saves it from being the most overrated movie of all time.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned No Country for Old Men, which I have not yet seen, but I would classify the book as a western.

No Country for Old Men is NOT a western. To be classified as a western someone must ride a horse, not drive around in a old Ford truck and if he was smart he would have followed the pit-bull?
