    I love Westerns! I have lots of favorites, but my number one choice is :

    The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.

    What is your favorite?

    I love Westerns, it's a badly neglected genre now (okay I sound like a film wanker but I'm not, I'm just an ordinary wanker).

    "Broken Arrow" Jimmy Stewart

    "Shane" Alan Ladd

    "High Noon" Gary Cooper

    I doubt if I've seen one I didn't like but those come to mind immediately.

    Joe Kidd is perhaps my favorite. Open Range and Broken Trail are very good, too.

    They Call Me Trinity :D

    Lonesome Dove is really well done, I think, for a serious one.
