The 100 Greatest Western Movies of All Time: Including Five You've Never Heard Of by the Editors of American Cowboy Magazine - IMDb I picked this particular organization as it has a good reputation for quality picks. However, for me, my considered choice on their list came down to #29, not that those that went before aren't great choices, but for me, Rio Bravo, is a personal favorite. My dad, may he rest in peace, loved Westerns, and War films, especially WWII, as he fought in it. But Westerns were his go to movies. I think it was because in retirement, his life of hard work, and service to his country, were his heyday. The '90s were just not very comfortable for him. He lived in the past, where life made sense, where things were set in stone, like Westerns, there were good guys and bad, the good triumphed. The heady issues of modern life were just not important to him. I would watch him as he watched a nature show, a war movie, a western, and you could see him thinking, back in time. Then Alzheimer's hit him, and the light of intelligence slowly left his eyes...a child's light replaced his adult one, perhaps how he viewed things as a child. I got to see him in those days, and he was a completely different man, someone I would have liked to know, as a child, instead of the father who I felt then had no relevance to me. Anyway, drifting off topic here :) So, what's your film choice here?
