You turn on your television. You eventually notice you don't want to watch anything that's on. You need to see something new and different... or rather something old and different!
The Western has been recognized as the most popular Hollywood film genre up to the 1960s.
Western is a type of film that tells stories of the American Old West, often focusing on the roaming cowboy or gunfighter (with his trusting horse). Western films are filled with fighting against Native Americans, the call of the wild and the bad outlaws usually with a shootout or gun duel. The Western film translated quite successfully into the Television medium during the 1950s and 1960s.
