The Hollywood Western

The Hollywood Western

by WilliamK.Everson (Author)


This book takes a retrospective look at the western film. Stars of yesterday, such as Tom Mix, Buck Jones and Richard Dix are remembered along with personalities such as John Wayne, William Holden, Robert Mitchum and today's heroes like Kevin Costner and Kevin Kline are included. Photographs help illustrate the text with the formula movies of the past with their stereotypical heroes and villans explored as well as the newer westerns which offer a more sympathetic look into the human struggles of the West.
