Most Helpful Customer Reviews

15 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Daniel Lawrence on March 22, 2000
Format: Paperback
The book is gathered from different essays each concerned with usually one major topic (i.e. a western movie, western director, western actor) The most informative essays deal with the historical context of the Western, pertaining to role of the Western in American culture but particularly with Western movies. Such as Robert Warshow's 1954 essay about the films entitled The Western. Other essays are about postmodern genre changes in the Western such as the psychologcial westerns of the 1950's. For example,essays about John Ford's The Searchers and Nicholas Ray's Johnny Guitar are included in the book. The book also covers many modern films that expounded on the deconstructionist period of the 1960's of The Wild Bunch to the 1990's with Unforgiven, and then some.

I'm taking an upper division course in western hero history and I needed this book for the class. It came in as described and with hardly any wear and tear. I recommend this seller and the book.
