Mine is Clint Eastwood's "For A Few Dollars More". Don't know why, but I could watch it every day for a week and never get tired of it. Seond choice is 'Lonesome Dove' which has to be the best Western ever made.

Can't pick just one...............The Shootist, maybe. Quigley Down Under is another. Lonesome Dove was special. Heck, if it was half decent, I loved the hell out of it.......

For Christmas, my Daughter and her BF got me a set of 15 REAL old John Wyane movies from before he got famous; Those old B movies are pretty cool, too.

Hey!!! Wouldn't ya just know it - a few minutes after I posted this topic, For A Few Dollars More came on to the American Movie Channel.

Life IS good!

I forgot to ask WHY the movie you mention is your favorite.

I can't explain what it is about For A Few Dollars More that I like, but Lonesome Dove is historically accurate in the gear, guns and clothing used, the acting is as good as it gets, and the story has a fullness to it that is hard to describe. Once you've seen it, you never forget it. It offers something for eveyone.

Well all mentioned are excellent some real classics that will live for ever..

I would have to say the Magnificant Seven edges most out with the best opening scene of any movie.. But any Duke, Selleck, Arness,Brenner, McQueen,Murphy, Coburn and Elliot movie are up there ..

I love Lonesome Dove but....

I love Lonesome Dove but just one thing wrankles with me......when he's hunkered down in that hollow hiding behind his dead horse and those renagde buffalo hunters and them indians are taking pot shots at him.....

...one of the buffalo hunters starts using a big bore Sharps....and when those big bullets arrive and strike the saddle....just a small puff of dust !.....surely not!.......I'm guessing it'd be taking off VERY large lumps of leather and probably horse meat!!!!

So when they make the re-make.......please let's have more realistic action shots of our favourite calibre in action....

......still a great film.......and I also have Return to Lonesome Dove......great film too.......many a cold winter (all) day spent watching these two.

Safe shooting

Monty, what the heck are we doin here?

We're cowboyin Chet, it's a great way of life.

I've watched Quigley probably 50 times. Crossfire Trail almost as many. Open Range is ok, but I'm getting sick of Costner for some reason.

Last of the Dogmen was my favorite for a long time.

Will Penny is a good one. So is Bite the Bullet.

The worst is Sean Connery and Bridgette Bardeux in one of Louis Lamours stories, yuck. Still have the video cover but I must have thrown out the video.

Always sort of figured myself as a Clint Eastwood when I was young. Hate those dang spaghetti westerns though, not sure why.

Sure shot, I have a pretty complete collection of Louis Lamour, including his non-western and auto biography. He was a very well read and intelligent man. You would be surprised how many Hollywood movies, and not all of them westerns, were based on his books, including one that was a true story adaptation of his time as a transportation officer in Eurpope during WWII, which you would know as "The Red Ball Express". My collection includes a couple first edition hardbacks with the original paper cover artwork. He was very influential to me growing up reading his westerns, and a lot of the information has proved valuable.
