4. Henry Fonda
5. Randolph Scott
6. Gregory Peck

That's a hard one...I've always loved watching Clint snarl & squint! Jeff Bridges was amazing, if a tad incomprehensible, in True Grit.

Jeff Bridges gets my vote-great movie!

EG Wow said...

Paul Newman may not have been the greatest cowboy...but I'm gonna choose him anyway. :)

Love Gary Cooper!Always have!

Jackie said...

Yes Clint Eastwood is my favourite western cowboy but charlie sheen did play Richard 'Dick' Brewer in Young Guns with billy the kidd really well and for what it's worth I will miss him in two and half men

John Wayne would get my vote. JDaniel's first movie was a Fist Full of Dollars. We watched in our hospital room when he was born.

Without a doubt it would have to be Bichon Wayne!

The last picture really made me laugh...and the whole post made me realize it's been way too long since I've watched a western!

Thanks for a wickedly cool link this week.

Theresa said...

O gosh! What a cute post - especially the last special pic:) Think I'd have to go with John Wayne as the BEST...Clint Eastwood as the most Handsome.

Wanda Metcalf said...

Clint and Gregory - no contest. I loved Gary Cooper but he was never a believable cowboy, to me.

cookbookshelf said...

Definitely Yul Brynner & Steve McQueen. Who could forget the Magnificent Seven!

fredamans said...

I'm not a big Western fan. Appreciate the actors more than the film itself. Just not my genre.

Judie said...

Waaaaaaa! You forgot Butch and Sundance!!

bermudabluez said...
