I’m not sure what to make of a list of the best Western movies ever. If someone were to ask me what my favorite Western is, I’d probably say Blazing Saddles because I couldn’t think of another. Also, if a movie had John Wayne or Clint Eastwood in it, it’s hard to keep straight which one is which. For someone who has never been a fan of Westerns, I was surprised to realize how many of these 35 movies I’ve seen. That’s purely because of the many years I’ve spent living with a man in possession of a remote control device, beginning with my father. I have to admit that some are pretty good, while there are quite a few I’ve not even heard of.

The list begins with the 1939 movie Stagecoach at #1. Don’t let that throw you, because this is not a ranked list. The movies are presented in chronological order, with a trailer and description for each, at Mental Floss. Which movies have you seen that should have made the list and didn’t? Blazing Saddles is not included.
