Cowboys and gunfighters, revenge and honor, love and betrayal - this list of the best ‘60s western movies has it all.

You can’t discuss the greatest ‘60s western movies without mentioning Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Pairing acting legends Paul Newman and Robert Redford as the titular duo, Butch Cassidy - one of the most fun Westerns to watch during a night in - won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay as well as numerous accolades for its two stars.

Many of the ‘60s western films on this list are Spaghetti Westerns, a group of films primarily made and produced by Italians. Sergio Leone pioneered and dominated this genre, and his magnum opus, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, tops this list of great ‘60s westerns. Starring Clint Eastwood, the film featured original music by Ennio Morricone.
