The Western movies peaked in the 50s and 60s, but recently made a comeback with Clint Eastwood an Kevin Costner tackling them. The American Film Institute ranked its Top 10 Westerns of all time.
There is a note: The Alamo was listed as an Epic, not just a Western, and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is not an American film, so it could not be lised.
Here are my favorites:
1. Unforgiven (Eastwood is a better director than actor)
2. High Noon (Gary Cooper vs. the world)
3. The Cowboys (my favorite John Wayne movie)
4. Dances with Wolves (Costner got this one right)
5. Rio Bravo (The Duke and Dean Martin)
6. True Grit (The Duke, again)
7. 3:10 to Yuma (Liked the remake)
8. The Magnificent Seven
9. The Sons of Katie Elder
10. Red River
Note: AFI's Top 10 are: 1. The Searchers; 2. High Noon; 3. Shane; 4. Unforgiven; 5. Red River; 6. The Wild Bunch; 7. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid; 8. McCabe and Mrs. Miller; 9. Stagecoach; 10. Cat Ballou.
