    The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962) by John Ford
    Red River (1948) by Howard Hawks (John Wayne and Montgomery Clift)
    Bad Company (1972) by Robert Benton (with Jeff Bridges)
    The Great Silence (1968) by Sergio Corbucci (with Jean-Louis Trintignant and Klaus Kinski)
    I Shot Jesse James (1949) by Samuel Fuller
    Little Big Man (1970) by Arthur Penn (with Dustin Hoffman)
    Johnny Guitar (1954) by Nicholas Ray
    McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971) by Robert Altman

    The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007) by Andrew Dominik. I like Brad Pitt's performance here.

    Sorry, more than 3, hard to decide.
