After I look around the 24CF, I jump over to Netflix and order it up.
Thanks

"Unforgiven" hands down the best he's ever made.

Also really like "Josey Wales" and "In The Line OF Fire"

Unforgiven is one of the best "Westerns" ever, but his role and the story in "Hang 'Em High" is one of the best written and most realistic westerns ever. The last scene in the movie when he rode out of town in search of the last villains, let me believe there was going to be another western around the "Cooper" character. I am still waiting...

Josey Wales
Unforgiven
Dirty Harry

Not sure the exact order though I suspect Josey Wales may be number one. I need to buy The Unforgiven.

Josey Wales has stood the test of time really well. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly broke some new ground. I liked the story of Hang 'Em High. Some of Clint's movies have too much grunting and spitting.

I really like to watch reruns of "Rawhide." His character has many more levels than any of his movies.

Watching "Where Eagles Dare" co-starring Richard Burton is a good way to spend an afternoon. Takes Clint a while to get warmed up in that one, but for pure body count nothing else he made touches it.

"Thunderbolt and Lightfoot" is another I haven't seen mentioned.

I let the boys, 6 and 9, watch the Trilogy over a long winter weekend and they are still runnin around mock shooting each other. I refer them as the "Eastwoods" when they have been after it!

They also liked "Two Mules for Sister Sara"..another one I didn't see mentioned.

I'll sit thru any CE film, even the gooey ones..

Quite a list on Wikipedia.

Back on subject. I can't pick just one, I like 'em all!

The spaghetti westerns all kind of blend together for me, but one of them has the best line in any movie, ever (and I paraphrase):

"There's two kinds of people in the world, them with loaded guns and them that dig. You dig."

I think it could be "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly".

Josey Wales is definitely my favorite, and I also really liked the Unforgiven. It has a good tie in with the story of Josey Wales.
