  1. A Fistful Of Dollars - This is the movie that launched the spaghetti Western and catapulted Clint Eastwood to stardom.
  2. Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid - Dating from 1969, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid has never lost its popularity or its unusual appeal as a star-driven Western that tinkers.
  3. El Dorado - This relaxed picture, made near the end of Hawks' marvellous career, still shows the steady, sure hand of a master.
  4. High Noon - One of the greatest Westerns ever made gets the deluxe treatment on this superior disc. Written by Carl Foreman (who was later blacklisted during the anticommunist hearings of the 1950s).
  5. Rio Bravo - When it comes down to naming the best Western of all time, the list usually narrows to three completely different pictures: Howard Hawks' Rio Bravo, Hawks' Red River and John Ford's The Searchers.
  6. The Magnificent Seven - Akira Kurosawa's rousing Seven Samurai was a natural for an American remake--after all, the codes and conventions of ancient Japan and the Wild West.
  7. The Searchers - A favourite film of some of the world's greatest filmmakers, including Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg.
  8. The Wild Bunch - Here's how director Sam Peckinpah described his motivation behind The Wild Bunch at the time of the film's 1969 release: "I was trying to tell a simple story about bad men in changing times.
  9. True Grit - John Wayne hams it up as a one-eyed, broken-down marshal in this 1969 adaptation of Charles Portis's bestselling novel.
