Glenn Ford (1916-2006) made 27 westerns during his long film career. Here are those we considered the best.

  • COWBOY (1958) Jack Lemmon, Brian Donlevy, Richard Jaeckel. Director Delmer Daves. One of the great trail drive movies of all time.
  • 3:10 TO YUMA (1957) Van Heflin, Felicia Farr, Richard Jaeckel. Director Delmer Daves. The real one, written by Elmore Leonard. Two guys in a hotel room – great psychodrama.
  • THE ROUNDERS (1965) Henry Fonda, Chill Wills, Edgar Buchanan, Sue Ane Langdon, Denver Pyle. Great western comedy. Ford and Fonda are great together.
  • JUBAL (1956) Ernest Borgnine, Rod Steiger, Valerie French, Noah Beery Jr., Charles Bronson, Richard Jaeckel. Director Delmer Daves.
  • FASTEST GUN ALIVE (1956) Broderick Crawford, Jeanne Craine, Russ Tamblyn, John Dehner. Director Russell Rouse.
