A review of "Movie Westerns: Hollywood Films the Wild, Wild West" by editor, Ross Adams, is here adapted from the August 2008 printed issue of "Dress Circle – the Movie Enthusiasts and Collectors Magazine".

Movie Westerns: Hollywood Films the Wild, Wild West

 

 

"Movie Westerns: Hollywood Films the Wild, Wild West" will delight western fans no end! This is genuine John Wayne and Gene Autry territory, complete with poster and lobby card reprints.

In fact this book is a "must" not only for all serious "western" aficionados, but for every man, woman and child who wishes to relive their Saturday matinee days. Of course, as John Howard Reid points out, many of these movies are now available on DVD.

In all, 174 westerns are reviewed in this book. The reviews list all the actors (not just the main stars), every credited person in the production team, plus copyright and release dates, and running times, as well as a story synopsis, production notes and comments.

There are also several bonus features, including one in which J.H.R. lists the top western money-making stars from 1936 through 1954. Of course, at one time or another, certain actors were tagged exclusively as "western" stars. A few, like John Wayne and Randolph Scott, made the grade to "A" movies; while three – Gary Cooper, Alan Ladd and James Stewart – were always "A"-grade stars.

In many of the "B" films, the star's horse played a more important role than the leading lady! It's interesting to note that Dale Evans was the only female star ever to make the annual lists of "Western Money-Makers"! John Howard Reid has her listed as number 9 for 1947.
