Great Hollywood Westerns: Classic Pictures, Must-See Movies & "B" Films
Beginning with Whip Wilson's "Abilene Trail" and Tim McCoy's "Aces and Eights" and ambling through Gene Autry's "The Old Barn Dance" and "The Old Corral", this guide winds up with one of Autry's best films, "Yodelin' Kid from Pine Ridge", in which Gene's co-star is none other than the wonderful "Peter Pan" herself, Betty Bronson. Yes, Gene's favorite sidekick, Smiley Burnette, is also along for the ride and really excels himself here in what amounts to a character role. Many other Autry oaters are detailed and discussed in this book. The same goes for Charles Starrett, Ken Maynard, Johnny Mack Brown, Roy Rogers, Bill Boyd, Hoot Gibson, Tex Ritter, Randolph Scott, Buck Jones, Bob Steele, John Wayne, Jack Perrin, Tim Holt, Audie Murphy, William Boyd, Joel McCrea, Alan Ladd, Tom Keene, Bill Cody, etc. Now that so many "B" westerns, as well as major "A" productions are now available on DVD, here's a must-have book for every western fan.
