List your favorite Spaghetti Western

I wonder how many people actually know what they are and would like to see the favorites of those who do.

One of my favorites is DJANGO followed by The Grand Duel.

Absolutely and without doubt, THE best spaghetti Western ever made, was 'Once Upon A Time In The West'. Directed by Sergio Leone (my favourite all time director) it starred Jason Robards, Henry Fonda, Claudia Cardinale, Charles Bronson and other famous names and faces.

Great cast, great story, great scenery, great horses and superbly acted. I was lucky enough to have been invited to a premier of this movie, many years ago. If you haven't seen it, do try. It is worth a look.

spagetti's

ANYTHING with Clint Eastwood, esp. "The Outlaw Josey Wales". LOVE "Lonesome Dove". But I can't watch the tear-jerking ones that have the horse die in the end. Even cartoons like that..."Hildago" was a little rough at the end...I need suggestions that won't make me cry- sad to say it, but I can handle a human dying but not the horse or animal. I never recovered from "Bambi"s mother dying, or "Dumbo" or even "Babe" when their mother was taken away...anyone else or am I just so sappy...(even the "Lion King") I know, I know...

I don't think you understand what a Spaghetti Western is. Those westerns you mentioned are good watches, but aren't in this category.

Spaghetti Westerns were European directed westerns. you mentioned Clint Eastwood so try to think about the set up for " A Fistful of Dollars" and the whistle or scream sound track during the face-offs. You can google it and get a list of all of the SW's to help you remember and chose which was your favorite.
