Once Upon a Time in the West Henry Fonda, Claudia Cardinale, Charles Bronson - This is just beautiful.  I don't normally rank westerns among my favorites, but this one gets an easy pass.  It has an ethereal atmosphere with unforgettable music, perfectly-casted characters, and some great shots of ...
