Lets try some not considered "Classic", but are great Western films {in my opinion} :

 

1-"Ramrod"- Joel McCrea

2- "The Spoilers"- Wayne & Scott

3-"Blood on the Moon"-Mitchum

4-"Western Union"-Scott

5-"Tall in the Saddle"-Wayne

6-"Streets of Laredo"-Holden

7-"Little Big Horn"-Ireland & Bridges

8-"The Last Wagon"-Widmark

9-"I Shot Jesse James"-Ireland

10-"Four Faces West"-McCrea

 

I could keep going, but you ask for only 10......

I don't know if I can NAME 10, but I'll do what I can... hard to do when limiting it to only two Dukes...

 

 

 

DODGE CITY; THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE; LITTLE BIG MAN; SHANE; THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN; RIO BRAVO; SHENNANDOAH; WINCHESTER 73; SILVERADO (not that "classic", but a good one!); MY DARLING CLEMENTINE

 

 

 

HEY! I MADE it! Sorry, but I never did take to Randolph Scott westerns. Reminded me too much of a math teacher carrying a six-gun!

*The Ox-Bow Incident*

*The Treasure of the Sierra Madre*

A lot of people don't. But, it has gold prospectors, bandidos, indios, burros, gun fights, and gila monsters. You just don't see a lot of horse riding. So, I wouldn't call it a horse opera, but it's clearly a western to me.

This is one of those lists that I keep changing as I remember one movie after another; there are so many westerns to choose from. In no paricular order:

The Magnificent Seven

Stagecoach

High Noon

Dances with Wolves

Little Big Man

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Unforgiven

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence

The Gunfighter

Johny Guitar

Fair enough, valentine. Seems I do recall some of those old ROY ROGERS flicks where a group of "cowboys" ride into the scene on horseback, and another group riding in on a pick-up truck!

 

 

Yes, it seems given the restraints of listing only 10 movies, and the further restriction of listing only TWO John Wayne efforts does cause one to really think about the ones they like best.

Always loved the Roy Rogers film where they had all the big cowboy stars at Republic guest star with Roy and Dale. "Bells of Rosarita" had the big chase with Sunset Carson, Allen "Rocky" Lane, Robert Livingston, Don "Red" Berry and "Wild Bill" Elliott The bad guys are in the rocks with Allen "Rocky" Lane firing his six shooters at them and Robert Livingston just looking at him and shaking his head and says.."You're going to do a lot of damage with those blanks", Lane looks at his guns and remembers their are blanks, shrugs his shoulders and keeps firing. Of course the bad guys run out of bullets and give up... :^0

The recyclers at Warner Brothers television certainly did, though. They lifted the whole story and turned it into an episode of "Cheyenne". It was a first season episode called "The Argonauts". Rod Taylor played Tim Holt, Edward Andrews played Duncan, the Dobbs character, and Clint Walker as he did throughout his career played Clint Walker.
