So I've finally decided to bite the bullet and dive into a marathon of Westerns, but I'm unsure where to really start. I know that above most other genres, there's likely to be a huge spaghetti western following here, so I thought this would be a great place to ask the question.
My main problem is that I don't want to jump the shark too early by watching the absolute best of the westerns, but rather build up through good films and then into them. I aim to conclude with John Ford's "The Searchers", then to Sergio Leone's "Dollars" trilogy and "Once Upon A Time In The West".
So far I have a rather pitiful (and probably unexpected) resume of only having seen both True Grit films and Unforgiven. If anyone has any suggestions I could run by popular opinion for slotting into a list, or even create a recommended list themselves, I would be deeply grateful.
I thank you in advance for your help!
