Angel and the Badman 1947 for a well done classic western formula B-grade with John Wayne.

The Tin Star for a post modern morality western with Henry Fonda.

I guess I'll toss this little gem in the mix since it was filmed in New Mexico:

"The Man from Laramie", 1955, starring Jimmy Stewart.

Red River is one my favorites with John Wayne. The Shootist is good, he played an old gun dying of cancer, which is what killed him 3 years later. El Dorado and Rio Bravo, excellent!

I know this was supposed to be about more obscure goodies, whoops. Western fans looking at this thread have seen the ones I listed I'd have to think.

So glad my dad exposed me to Westerns as a kid. I hope my boys take to em, course things are different now than they were in the 80s, things seemed simpler then.

Anyways, Westerns are awesome. Sweet Jesus, does it get any more badass and American than say, High Noon?

The "Tall T" with Randolph Scott has always been one of my sleeper favorites. A couple of bad villains with Richard Boone being one of them.

Major Dundee and Cheyenne Autumn are a couple of really good Westerns that don't get a lot of talk.

The Cheyenne Social Club is good comedy with Jimmy Stewart and Henry Fonda. And I'll second Angel and the Bad Man with John Wayne.

She Wore A Yellow Ribbon is a favorite but doesn't really fit here because it is well acclaimed as is The Searchers.

All good stuff, How about Lonesome Dove? The Wild Wild West (Not the Will Smith movie, the series.) The Adventures of Briscoe County Jr. was a great western comedy. Anyone seen "Hostiles" yet? Unforgiven...., And for realistic dialog HBO's Deadwood.

The wild bunch was pretty controversial in it's day , but it actually had the great theme all good westerns do....."We're going to stick together no matter what,right to the bitter end ,even if it truly is The Bitter END!"
That final shootout was one of the best.......
LONESOME DOVE is in the very top along with "THE SEARCHERS", Duke Wayne & John Ford's Finest......

There are a few Westerns that Larry MacMurtry {LONESOME DOVE} wrote too, & they are really good , especially "DEAD MAN'S WALK" ,"COMANCHE MOON",
also " STREETS of LAREDO" ,it's OK, but the others are better.


ONLY THE VALIANT .....Gregory Peck

Mentioned already but I'll throw in a second for My Name Is Nobody. Good mix of spaghetti style western and a comedic twist.

Two Rode Together with Jimmy Stewart and Richard Widmark and directed by John Ford. I’m watching it now on cable. I don’t recall seeing it before but it’s very good as you’d expect of a John Ford flick with this cast. About a Marshall and a cavalry officer trying to get some captives back from the Comanches.

Nobody has mentioned Unforgiven ? There's also a Japanese remake, also called Unforgiven. Interesting twist since the Magnificent Seven was a remake of the Japanese film, The Seven Samurai.

The Quick & The dead is good.

The film stars Terrence Hill and Henry Fonda called: "My Name is Nobody", a late era spaghetti western. Filming locations included Acoma Pueblo and a real ghost town in this State. If you have a chance, watch the first five minutes of this film, it's really worth it for the cinematography and sound editing. I think you can see this segment on Youtube but it may be in Italian.

The ghost town was actually a stage station location in the 1870's to 1880's along the Jemez-Zuni Trail and Star Mail Route. The town was called "La Posta del Rio Puerco" and contained Cabezon Station. At that time the stage stations were about 15 miles apart, and this little town contained one such station. La Posta was a rough and wild place, right on the edge of the Navajo frontier. The famous frontier scout Tom Horn worked this mail route for several months as a very young man. I go once a year to see friends and visit the San Jose Church in this town.
I have heard of that one, but don't recall if I have seen it or not. A lot of the scenery in those Sergio Leone specials,. shot in Spain,. reminds me some of NM as well, but I did not realize he actually made films here.

A Spaghetti Western shot in New Mexico?

Shouldn't that be called a Relleno Western?

The Film, "My Name is Nobody" was co-directed by Tonino Valeri and Sergio Leone. Lots of New Mexico scenery. This is a link to the entire film, but watch the first 11 minutes. This was filmed in La Posta del Rio Puerco, in Sandoval County. The name of the town was changed to Cabezon, named after the peak to the SW of the town. It was a trading community for Navajos and a Stage Coach station. The opening sequence of 11 minutes is fabulous with a classic use of sound. Watch for a cameo by future Dallas TV series actor, Steve Kanaly:

Several of John Wayne's westerns (El Dorado, Rio Bravo and Rio Lobo to name a couple that I have watched at least close to a dozen times) were filmed near me at Old Tucson Studios west of town. They had a fire in the 90's and had to rebuild. It was a really popular place to film westerns in the 60's and up to the 80's even some TV shows (Bonanza, Death Valley Days). It's kind of a touristy thing now. Even some of Tombstone was filmed there.

Most of the westerns that I was thinking of you guys mentioned. Unforgiven has really grown on me.
