Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


From the very beginnings of cinema in America, the Western has been a central genre. The hazardous lives of the settlers, their conflict with native Americans and the lawsless frontier towns make great film subjects. The Western starts with an introduction to the real American West, and traces the development of the genre from early silent films to the revisionist Westerns of recent decades. Includes information on all the major Hollywood directors, actors, and noteworthy films of the genre.
