Unforgiven was good. And High Noon. I love the Sergio Leone ones too, although I know that's a different 'class' of Western.

Let's face it, the Clint Eastwood ones were among the best: totally iconic. Far more obscurely I have always had a soft spot for Heaven's Gate which was a commerial disaster and often considered to be quite tedious. Actually it's not really a typical cowboy movie at all but I like it all the same. Terrific score too Heaven's Gate: Original Soundtrack [SOUNDTRACK] which I bought years ago (and having provided the link I'm amazed to see it's being flogged from fifty odd quid!). Might have to stick mine on Marketplace :)

Once Upon a Time in America - almost operatic in the scope and score.

Don't you mean Once Upon a Time in The West, Liam? ~America wasn't a western, it was a gangster film

Yes, quite right... I always get them mixed up.

the searchers, unforgiven, and for a few dollars more would be my favourites.

also the proposition - set in the australian outback and written by musician nick cave - would also be up there, if not a western in the strictest sense..

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is the definitive western for me. The Leone trilogy is quite brilliant but this tops the bill. It's got everything, humour, tragedy, friendship, greed and surely the most powerful score ever written. I can actually feel the heat of that powerful sun in the desert scene as Tuco drags Blondie across it, simply through the power of Morricone's music. Just sublime!

High Noon

That was a fine western. I'd forgotten that one. The most memorable scene has to be the feasting on beans around the camp fire.

You must mean Once upon a time in the West with Henry Fonda and a harmonica playing Charles Bronson. Once upon a time in America is about Jewish gangsters from childhood to manhood, also by Leonne. Both extraordinary films.

No buts it's got to be 'High Noon'.

Well, Amazon deleted my previous post which questioned the thinking of certain negative voters who say that posts which are clearly answering the original question are "not helpful." I'll not do that again, then.

Neither will I mention trolls.

This post does NOT answer the original question, so I'd expect it to be negged.

This speaks for itself:

The original post on this thread has been voted as "not adding to the discussion."

"The original post on this thread has been voted as "not adding to the discussion."

I see this as quite reasonable. What relevance does a question about Westerns have, to a forum specified to be about discussion of "Top Reviewers" ?

The initial post in a discussion must add to the discussion, because without it, there is no discussion.

There are plenty of other threads in this discussion forum that are related to "Top Reviewers" and which are therefore more deserving of being classed as adding to the discussion.
