What makes a great Western? Aside from casting Clint Eastwood (he’s in so many of these) or John Wayne, an outstanding Western offers movie goers fantastic characters, lots of drama and tension and certainly a nasty, memorable villain or two. Setting is obviously important in top western movies as well. Throw in a High Noon style standoff and you simply can’t miss. Those are the most important elements in the best western and cowboy movies.
