Top 10 Westerns

Once Upon a Time in the West is Sergio Leone's ode to the vanishing American frontier

Once Upon a Time in the West

Henry Fonda, Claudia Cardinale and Charles Bronson star in Sergio Leone's 1965 ode to the dying American frontier. A beautiful widow receives help from a mysterious harmonica-playing stranger after her family is brutally killed in a railroad dispute. This movie is majestic, with gorgeous panoramas and powerful close-ups, every operatic scene pierced by haunting harmonica music. Despite a few takes that are very hard to stomach, the overall effect is that of watching a languid, mystical poem.
