    You've covered some of the best newer ones.

    Don't waste your time on The Quick and the Dead, that movie was rediculous. Open Range is excellent. Also try The Unforgiven or Pale Rider with Eastwood.

    "The Magnificent Seven" TV show (made in the late 90s) just came out on DVD. Damn good show with lots of classic western scenarios. Good production values, good acting (Michael Biehn, Ron Perlman, Eric Close, Dale Midkiff, etc) and a lot of fun to watch. The DVD transfer is a bit grainy, but but since it was a low key show and a budget DVD release, I'm not complaining too much.

    John Wayne films that have the many good examples of Gun slinging
    Rio Bravo
    El Dorado
    Rio Lobo
    The Searchers
    True Grit (Famous for the the way the lead character fires his pistol, rifle *working the lever one handed* and rides his horse at a full gallup.

    The Quick and the Dead was also the name of an older movie with Sam Elliot. Much better than the more recent piece of crapola.

    My favorites:

    Tombstone
    Open Range
    Unforgiven
    Pale Rider
    Quigley Down Under
    The Crossfire Trail
    Monty Walsh
    The Shootist
    A Fistful of Dollars

    +1. It's not only the best western ever made in my opinion but is also on my top 5 list of favorite movies ever made for all genres.

    Aren't El Dorado and Rio Bravo essentially the same movie with slightly different characters?

    Open Range is probably the best movie I have seen since Unforgiven. The Magnificent Seven, True Grit, and The Shootist are great. Lots of good ones to choose from.

    WESTWORLD with Yul Brenner. Not your run of the mill western as it is also a scifi. Pretty good Yul Brenner flick even though he has only one line in the whole movie that he says again and again.:) Probably a bit dated now but a good sci-fi/western if ever there was one.

    Yes, El Dorado is Hawk's own remake of "Rio Bravo." Even more confusing, "Rio Lobo" is ANOTHER Hawks remake of "Rio Bravo." But nothing can top the original "Rio Bravo." It was Hawk's response to the absurdity of "High Noon," with Wayne as the antidote for that nancy boy Cooper. It's one of the top ten action films of all time, no question about it. "Rio Bravo" not only set the stage for Hawk's own remakes but for several hundred action films well beyond the Western genre. The terse screenplay, tight action and fast unapologetic violence are pretty much taken for granted in action films today but they were something new when the film came out. The entire opening sequence has almost no dialog, yet the whole conflict is spelled out, from Chance's complex relationship with his former deputy (played by Dean Martin) to the murder that sets the stage for everything that follows. Amazing. The patent Duke Smackdown, using a '92 as a club, is a thing to behold (even if the film is set before 1892). Though I would not recommend his idea of a carry condition--finger on the trigger and thumb on the hammer!
