    I am watching For a Few Dollars More for the umpteenth time. One of those movies where you just stop no matter what you are doing and watch if it happens to come on TV. Got me thinking, I wonder if there was a better western ever made. Such a classic. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly and A Fi****l of Dollars might give it competition for best ever western. In your opinion, what is the best western ever made?

    Tombstone but if that doesn't count as a true Western........then Unforgiven or The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.

    All good suggestions! I'm a huge For a Few Dollars More fan as well. My picks for great Westerns (not already mentioned), would go to El Dorado and Duel at Diablo, both with great casts. For a bit darker tale, The Wild Bunch.

    Yeah, I never saw it coming!
    Jokes aside, Tombstone is my favorite as well. Just so many great actors and performances in one film.

    I cannot nominate one as being better than all the others.

    The Searchers
    Outlaw Josey Wales
    Good, Bad and the Ugly
    the original True Grit
    High Noon
    The Wild Bunch

    Those off the top of my head and I no doubt can come up with more. Duel at Diablo is VERY under rated.

    The best Western, IMO, was actually a mini series. Lonesome Dove is the best IMO. If I have to pick just one, then I'd pick any one of the individual Lonesome Dove series.

    I'd go with Tombstone, Pale Rider is probably 2nd, always liked that one.

    I would probably have to go with
    good bad and ugly as the best.
    you should ask for a top five there are many good westerns .
    1 good bad and ugly
    3. tombstone
    4 .for a few dollars more
    5.Fi****l of Dollars.
    The amazing thing is that the spag.
    Westerns were made in the 60,s!
    and are still good!

    I always enjoyed High Plains Drifter. Just classic Eastwood.

    Definitely not the best ever. But a made for TV western that I always liked, and really enjoyed the concept. Purgatory.

    It's not a shoot 'em up western but I love McLintock!

    Also love a bunch already listed. The first part of the Lonesome Dove mini-series is some of the best dialogue ever seen in a western. It didn't hurt to have Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Duvall playing the lead characters as only they could.

    Tombstone absolutely qualifies and is a classic. I'll watch it anytime it's on, even if it's halfway through.

    Rio Bravo was fantastic. Might be my favorite classic action western.

    The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is my favorite Eastwood western.
