34. The Sheepman with Glenn Ford is also another great western
Edited on Mon Dec-24-07 11:13 PM by aint_no_life_nowhere
It has a great cast, with Glenn Ford, Shirley MacClaine, Leslie Nielson and Edgar Buchanan. Although made back in the 1950s, it's still very fresh, mainly because of its humor. It's a very funny film where the hero depends on his wits more than violence. Glenn Ford wins a herd of sheep in a poker game and has to contend with the hatred he meets from the local cattle barons. There's a great scene in the movie where he puts his cigar out in the coffee cup of one of his enemies. This is another one you rarely see on TV.

I would also suggest that The Misfits belongs on a list of the all-time great westerns. With that cast (Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Eli Wallach, and Montgomery Clift) it doesn't get much better.
