24. Two somewhat obscure westerns that I like
are Rio Conchos and Valdez Is Coming.

Rio Conchos had a very good performance on the part of Richard Boone (of Have Gun, Will Travel fame) in the lead role and a Golden Globe nomination for co-star Anthony Franciosa. Valdez Is Coming (AKA Viva Valdez) has been called the last conventional western and had a wonderful performance by Burt Lancaster, with a screenplay by Elmore Leonard. I wouldn't put these two in the top ten, but maybe in the top 20 of greatest westerns. And you almost never see them on television.
