In some ways, the western has become a relatively obsolete modern cinematic genre – where it was once the most popular type of film in the world, these days we’re lucky if we get one a year – but no study of film as an artistic medium can be complete without assessing the aesthetic and cultural merits of the western film.

And one of the great advents of DVD – and especially the convenience and dazzling clarity of Blu-ray – is that it’s never been this easy to discover (and relish in) both classic and off-the-radar westerns in the comfort of one’s own home, which is what two DVDFilers have done this week: Ken and Mike – on opposite sides of the USA, with the vast expanse of the American West in between them – have compiled lists of the ten greatest oaters of all time.

Put on your chaps, grab a ten-gallon hat and join us on a stagecoach ride toward the open range...  

First up: Jon Carpenter finds a love that will never grow old...
