      My favorite one from this bunch is by far The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. I don't think it will take the win, but it has to make it out in the top 8.

        Hard to say which is my favorite in this category. Wild Bunch,Liberty Valence,The Professionals,Major Dundee,and Once upon a time in the West are all favorites.
        If the art of war were nothing but the art of avoiding risks,glory would become the prey of mediocre minds. Napoleon

              The new technology in film and SFX helped Sam Peckinpah bring the reality of what firepower does to the human body in "The Wild Bunch". Up until then, we had to imagine and believe what Hollywood would let us see.

                What the...!?!?!...Hour of the Gun (1967) didn't make the list...

                It was *the* best Earp/Clanton movie prior to Tombstone.

                      I am the only one so far to have voted for the Great Silence, so believe I'm the only to have actually seen it out of the voters so far . Klaus Kinski is great, and the original ending astonishingly fantastic .

                      As a kid I used to like that one with the Dinosaur - 'The Valley of the Gwangi'. Cowboys verses Dinosaurs, whats not to like !

                        I'm very biased here. Jeremiah Johnson is one of my top 5 movies of all time. But it probably won't win.

                          yepp it was a good one.... Redford (as noted elsewhere)sucked.

                            We'll have to disagree on this one CV. I thought he was perfect for the role.
