4 Eight Good Westerns
These DVDs are part of a series of Western movies that were very popular from around 1910 to the early 1960s. Westerns were replaced by other action movies and novels. Popular tastes were changed by technology, horses became scarce after the 1940s. The modern westerns of Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, and others were set in present times with automobiles, radios, and telephones. Private detectives and government agents supplanted the lone rider who corrected crimes. Police departments replaced the Sheriff's posses composed of ordinary citizens. The Gun Prohibition pushed by Big Corporations avoided showing ordinary people keeping and bearing arms, or the use of lawful violence for self-protection. Movies still follow the rules of the morality plays where evil is punished and the good are rewarded. Except when they aren't.
These eight films feature Randolph Scott (and others) in dramas set in the 1860s ("Rage at Dawn"), the 1870s ("Abilene Town"), the 1880s ("To The Last Man"), and the 1930s (The Fighting Westerner"). There are no singing cowboys; they replaced the authentic cowboys of earlier westerns ("Hoot" Gibson, Tom Mix, Tim McCoy, and others). Few actors today have ridden horses since their teens (like John Wayne). Westerns are more obsolete than dial telephones or tube radios. But there are still some who prefer the old movies over the trendy new. These four movies are all worth viewing as entertainment, and as examples of former popular entertainment before the 1960s. The second DVD has "Kansas Pacific", "Santa Fe Trail", "Vengeance Valley", and "The Outlaw". These are movies, not history.Read more ›

The sound quality was a little off, but as they said in "blazing Saddles", we'd do it for Randolph Scott"!Published 16 months ago by Thomas l.
