Best Western Movies: Winning Pictures, Favorite Films and Hollywood B Entries

by John Howard Reid

Best Western Movies: Winning Pictures, Favorite Films and Hollywood B Entries Synopsis

This grab-bag of movie westerns ranges from the best to the worst; from lavish, no-expense-spared Cecil B. DeMille epics to Poverty Row double bills; from big-budget John Wayne vehicles like In Old Oklahoma , The War Wagon and The Fighting Kentuckian to the sort of bottom-drawer product delivered by Sherman Scott and Monogram; from prestige, star-studded westerns like My Darling Clementine and How the West Was Won to the depths of The Toughest Man in Arizona ; from the expertly crafted, super-popular B stables of Gene Autry, William Boyd, Roy Rogers, Charles Starrett and company to the fly-by-night efforts of long-forgotten brands like The Range Busters. All reviews carry detailed credits. The book is rounded out with a Hopalong Cassidy filmography and many reproductions of original film posters.
