"True Grit."

The original version of this classic John Wayne film from the classic book of the same name can now be found on Netflix Instant Watch Westerns. This Western would be a great to watch for comparison after you watch the excellent Coen Brothers remake starring Jeff Bridges.


Paul Newman has a thing for starring in classic Westerns and "Hud" is one of them, now available as one of the best Netflix Instant Watch Westerns. This film is a good one to watch for the aforementioned "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid."

"Death Rides a Horse."

One of the greatest spaghetti Westerns of all time is now available on Netflix Instant Watch Westerns. It stars "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" villain Lee Van Cleef in an incredibly enjoyable film genre that has all but disappeared these days. Tarantino will hopefully change that.

"One Eyed Jacks."

A Western starring Marlon Brando, "One Eyed Jacks"is one of the best Netflix Instant Watch Westerns to choose from through their streaming service. These were the days when Brando was still thin and a realistic hero.
