The High Chaparral
Our Favorite Movie Westerns

Fans of The High Chaparral tend to be experts in the Western genre so if you're looking for a good Western, you probably won't go wrong with one of these.  This is a list compiled by members of the hcdg of some of our favorite Western movies. 

The list is not exhaustive, so feel free to make new suggestions.  If you do, be sure to also suggest one of the following categories to put it in:  True Biographies, Epics, Showdowns, Adventure/Drama, Quests, End of an Era, Spaghetti, Romance, Comedy/Light Side, Musicals, Western Spoofs.  Lots of movies could fit in more than one category, but choose the one that best fits in your opinion.  If you think I've missed on some category placement, let me know.  I had to guess on a few of these that I hadn't seen.

Highlighted movies
have HC cast members and guest stars in them as noted, but we continue to discover more, so let us know if you spot an HC actor or guest we haven't mentioned.  As you can see, most really good Westerns are connected in some way to The High Chaparral !

For more info on any of these movies check the movie info links on the Links page.  A straight alphabetical listing follows the categories in case you are looking for a particular movie and want to quickly find out if it's here or what category it is in.  Just print the alpha list next time you head out to rent a movie!

True Biographies (close anyway) While a considerable amount of dramatic license is expected, these movies are based on actual people and actual events, not just the addition of a historical figure who wanders into a fictional account for flavor.
