The Top 50 Western Movie List is a list of movies that we believe are the best classic western films available today.
They westerns cover a variety of film types in the western genre (i.e. classic, spaghetti, western, comedy) and span over a seventy year period from 1925-1999. They are interesting, entertaining and educational movies that showcase western talent in a way that we believe represents the best of the bunch.
To be considered for the Top 50 List, the westerns had to meet the following criteria:
Based on the selection criteria, careful research was done to narrow the list of movies down to fifty. Newspapers, magazines, the internet and anything else related to western films and the film industry were all used as sources for the research. We also used critic reviews and fan reviews. We not only wanted award-winning, critically-acclaimed westerns but also films that western fans have expressed their pleasure with as well.
We are open to suggestions for movies to include in future versions of the list. If you have a movie that you would like to suggest that meets our selection criteria, please Contact Us.
