Favorite Clint Eastwood Western?

Depending on the day, I'd be content voting for either "The Outlaw Josey Wales" or any one of the 3 Spaghetti Westerns.

Based on its replay value and fun factor, I'll cast today's vote for For a Few Dollars More.

"Unforgiven" without a doubt. One of the greatest movies of the 1990s.

Well seeing as to how The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is my second favorite film ever, I think it's safe to say it's my favorite Eastwood western.

I'm giving The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly a slight margin over For A Few Dollars More. I think those are his best two, and Unforgiven would be in third place.

Since Paint Your Wagon isn't one of the choices I'll have to go with A Fistful of Dollars.

Unforgiven for me, but I love The Good, The Bad and the Ugly as well.

Unforgiven because it had everything that made me want to see it over and over...story, acting, dialogue (very quotable), great characters that I cared about (OK, a couple) and directing at its best. Eastwood at his finest.

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly... for the unforgetable final gun draw scene with those three guys.

Josey Wales without a doubt is Clints best western. Followed by Unforgiven and High Plains Drifter. HPD has some of the worst acting in any western but the that adds to its charm.

I love all of the movies on that list, but The Good, The Bad And The Ugly wins easily for me.

I love them all, but The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is the best. It's in my top five movies ever, sometimes at the top of the list.

Second place would be For a Few Dollars More. Third place is (for me) a multi-way tie.
