Tombstone, Val Kilmer is fantastic as Doc Holiday. Kurt Russell, late Bill Paxton. 

Simply suburb movie that’s I watch and rewatch since it came out. Really, my all time favorite western

I love cowboy movies and saw hundreds between 10 and 16 years old at the cinema mostly Saturday afternoon matinees

What I didn’t see then I’ve probably seen since it mostly on television since the end of the 60’s

i also have dozens of dvds of Audie Murphy Randolph Scott Joel McCrea And Gregory Peck not to mention dozens of tv shows from the early 60’s

currently watching Laramie on Foxtel and Wyatt Earp on Amazon along with a few western movies

ive also recently discovered a lot on you tube and watched them on the tv

Monte Walsh (the 1971 Lee marvin version - haven't seen the Tom Sellick remake)  This under-rated gem is a warm and beautiful movie that treads easly and deftly between melancholy, humour and action.  I portrays a West that is changing forever with the sad result that the cowboy life is becoming redundant.

 

The gorgeous music by John Barry gets under your skin and stays there permanently.   I was sold right from the opening title song by Mama Cass Elliot.

 

Maybe not a typical Western, but my favourite.

 

I liked "Bad Day at Black Rock" too - must be one of the best titles ever!  But I guess that's even less of a "Western".

 

I last saw "Soldier Blue" about 45 years ago but I do remember really enjoying it, despite fairly universal panning by the critics.

+1 for tombstone and Unforgiven. I’ll add No country for old men as Maybe the best modern western and There will be blood as another modern masterpiece. 

 

I saw There will be blood with the MSO providing the soundtrack live a couple of years ago and it was incredible.

That's a great selection of posters keyse1.

You have reminded me of all the TV westerns I used to watch back in the 60's.

Cheyenne, Sugarfoot, Bronco, Bat Masterson, Rawhide, Branded, The Rebel (which is playing on Netflix at the moment), Have Gun Will Travel, The Lone Ranger (TV series), Maverick,

Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Wyatt Earp and another series (I have forgotten the title) with a young Steve McQueen in which his character wears a cut-down rifle in a holster on his hip.

I used to enjoy Whiplash! with Peter Graves, set and filmed in 1800's Australia. Peter Graves and James Arness (Gunsmoke) are brothers apparently.

In the 70's used to watch Cash & Co. another Australian series set in the 1800's

Cade's County with Glen Ford was another good series although a more modern setting.

Steve McQueen  was The Bounty Hunter l think.

You left out one of my favourite early tv shows The Cisco Kid , oh! and HOPALONG CASSIDY who l only just remember seeing when he came to Adelaide in l think the late 50s

I like John Wayne but like Robert  DeNiro    Jack Nicholson And Al Pacino made a career out of playing themselves after making some great movies

The Searchers and the 3 Cavalry movies She Wore A Yellow Ribbon The Horse Soldiers And Fort Apache were great movies and all directed by John Ford 

From memory The Searchers was referenced by George Lucas as an influence on Star Wars and  contains the Buddy Holly song title That’ll Be The Day that John Wayne repeats throughout the movie

Gregory Peck made some good westerns the best of which was The Gunfighter which was referenced in an epic Bob Dylan song Brownsville Girl from the record Knocked Out Loaded

      It is not well known but Australia has been a major pioneer of the motion picture. Who is credited with the first ever full reel feature film The Story Of the Kelly Gang made in 1906? Us.  Believe it or not there is still remaining footage of this slice of movie history. https://youtu.be/vf0YNb8n9NM Six years earlier the Salvations Army's production of Soldiers of the Cross is reputed to be the world's first multi media feature film. Sadly no film footage of this pioneering masterpiece remains.

      Found this yesterday amongst SBS On Demand's movies. Set in 1941 during the siege of, another true (?) story about amazing people with huge hearts doing things we would find totally inconcevable. Loved it, highly recommended.
