Got to agree with you on "Shane" and "Seven", I'm not familiar with the others you cite, but I do have a minor nit to pick on your description of the survivors above. The characters who lived through the final big shootout were played by Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, and Horst Bucholz (sp?). Bronson was one of the casualties.
But who's counting?
