'Dances with Wolves' because it fundamentally changed the narrative of a Western. Native people were shown in a completely different role, and the atrocities of the time were not ignored. The slaughter of the American bison and the indigenous people and cultures were shown quite graphically. No movie had ever done that, and there aren't many that have since.

True enough. And even in 'Dances with Wolves' they had a white boy as the main character to tell the story. The Western genre is really about American mythology and not American history.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence
Quigley Down Under
Destry (Audie Murphy) because it seemed it was on Channel 12 as a kid all the time.

Rancho Deluxe has a cult following as does El Topo.
Sam Peckinpaw movies and anything with Slim Pickens makes the cut. With that, I mention: Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid

Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Slim Pickens, James Coburn, Jack Elam... Watching that scene where Pickens' character is shot in the belly with his wife at his side, watching the sunset and "Knocking on Heaven's Door" playing in the background. Awesome.

I forgot about "The Undefeated". Not the best, but a great story. Not a lot of people have seen it.
John Wayne, Rock Hudson, Roman Gabriel, Merlin Olsen..........good one!

Here's a couple of wild cards from around 1970..........Ned Kelly with Mick Jagger playing the lead role and A Man Called Horse with Richard Harris playing the lead. Both very interesting and entertaining. Other than that Lonesome Dove and Jerimiah Johnson.

I love all the movies mentioned. But I saw High Noon in the movie theater when I was 8. My Mom was a big Gary Cooper fan, so that is why my first name is... Gary

"Do not forsake me oh my darling..on this our wedding day."
