WESTERNS: A Guide to the Best (and Worst) Western Movies on DVD
So many classic Hollywood Westerns are now available on DVD, it takes an expert like John Howard Reid to guide even the most devoted fan through the labyrinth.
For starters, this book has an alphabetical section of 150 pages in which the author discusses in detail a range of great movies from Abilene Town through to Zorro's Fighting Legion.
The next 42 pages are taken up with an examination of all 66 of William Boyd's "Hopalong Cassidy" movies,
The author then homes in on the Top Five Western Stars, whom he regards as Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, John Wayne, Alan Ladd, and Buck Jones.
Reid concludes this survey with an article entitled, "The World's Worst Westerns" -- by which he means, of course, the worst western movies that are available on DVD.
Needless to say, complete DVD details (including the quality or lack of quality of the DVD itself) are provided for all the hundreds of western titles discussed.
