I'm Sure You'll All Agree

No Ride the High Country or The Cowboys? I would not include Way Out West. Never liked Johnny Guitar. Rio Bravo is overrated-Dean Martin looked out of place in a western and Ricky Nelson couldn't act. The original True Grit is inferior the the Coen Brothers. John Wayne was good but Glen Campbell and Kim Darby were awful.

No SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SHERIFF? I love WAY OUT WEST (if only for the dance), but I don't put it in the "western" category. Of course I disagree with Steve on RIO BRAVO.

I'm a fan of RIO BRAVO. I can't figure the omission of RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY, or the low rating for SHANE, although I know some don't care for it.

Don Coffin said...

I looked at that list 3 times, and I have just 3 words:

The
Magnificent
Seven

Steve Oerkfitz said...

Don-That should be on there.

Bill Crider said...

That one would be on my list

Joe Allegretti said...

Nothing by Boetticher and Randy Scott? And, speaking of Scott, no Ride the High Country?

Max Allan Collins said...

Pretty spotty. Some things that aren't really westerns, and spoofs don't belong. No Boetticher/Scott, no Ride the High Country. (Spits tobacco contemptuously.)

Cap'n Bob said...

Another dumb list.

Peter Collinson said...

What Allegretti and Collins said. No Scott/Boetticher, indeed.

pretty stupid list - no The Gunfighter ***greatest western ever made, next to Stagecoach***
