"Must See" Westerns?

I’m starting to get into western movies, and am looking for the "must see" titles. From the titles that I remember, I’ve seen:

– Deadwood
– The Good, The Bad & The Ugly
– Tombstone
– 3:10 To Yuma (remake)
– Unforgiven

I’ve seen a few others, but I can’t recall the names. I would prefer westerns with more action, but am open to anything.
You’ve got a good list sitting there so far

The Good The Bad and The Ugly, they just don’t make movies like that anymore

I’ll try to find some others.
My Darling Clementine
Rio Grande
Wild Bunch
Stagecoach
The Searchers
Back to the Future 3

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
maybe Zorro?

Not as awesome as The Good the Bad and the Ugly, but Fistfull of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More were great too.
Modern westerns that are "Must See"s

3:10 to Yuma (Bale/Crow)
Unforgiven
Open Range
Assassination of Jesse James

That’s the only one that I haven’t seen, and am waiting on it from Netflix. Is it better than the other 3?
true grit was a good one, just about anything with the duke in it, you cant go wrong.

Nah. It’s good but 3:10 and Open Range are the two best on the list.
I’m gonna throw out a wild card here…

Sukiyaki Western Django

The Proposition isn’t "Western" but it’s western like…lakes place in australia but is a pretty good movie.

Also: Once upon a time in the west.
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
once upon a time in the west
The Good, The Bad & The Ugly
Fist Full of Dollars
A Few dollars more
The Outlaw Josey Wales
Young Guns
The Magnificent Seven
Unforgiven
The Searchers
How the West was Won
The Man who shot Liberty Valance
The Shootist (Great… John Wayne’s Last Movie)
Ride The High Country…an early Peckinpah, not as violent as The Wild Bunch or un-subtle as Pat Garret, but a great take on fading cowboys in the receeding West. I also really liked The Hi-Lo Country, in spite of the pointless voice over. And The Man Who Shot Liberty West is the all-encompassing self-referential Ford Western.
I know it was already listed, but I finally saw Tombstone in its entirety a couple of months ago. It definitely is one of my favorite Westerns.
