The 1960s was a time of cowboys and gunfighters as audiences were given some of the best stories ever to take place amidst the American Old West. Simply put, the 1960s was THE decade for the Western. Can you really argue that given the all-star list below?

Which of these '60s Western movies will you most likely remember?

I recommend this alignment for the Top 5:

Once Upon a Time in the West
The Magnificent Seven (if only for the score and the cast, it's got to be in the first images)
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
The Wild Bunch (a cinematic staple)
or
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (John Ford's last masterpiece, and well, a John Ford movie)

And colors-wise, it'll look pretty.... I like the contrasting blue of Peckinpah's film and the bright yellow of "Seven".

I wouldn't include Yojinbo though although I get your point. I'm a purist on these matters and I like AFI's definition of Western: a genre of films set in the American West that embodies the spirit, the struggle, and the demise of the new frontier.

Yep, you called it. Too bad, should have listened! The color scheme would have been beautiful as well...

Great picks Stephen.. many of these I'm yet to see. Other than Leone's films, I lack in my Western viewings but these are all supposed to be excellent. Thanks for the vote.

Wow! You're uncle is John Russell? Makes sense given the last name. Does acting run in your family?

Unfortunately, Yellowstone Kelly (1959) was made just before the '60s. However, IMDb poll author Hoekkie made the poll below:

Western Movies of the '50s

You can ask him to re-push this poll and include 'Yellowstone'.

I, too, was assuming you meant "with that."
