Wild Bill Elliott was a major western star for over 15 years. Known, and proclaimed by himself and others as a "peaceable" man, his screen persona met evil head-on and emerged victorious. Elliott's gunplay and unusual style of fisticuffs brought cheers from millions of Saturday audiences. From 1940 through 1954, Elliott was listed as a top moneymaking western star in the Motion Picture Herald poll of exhibitors and the Boxoffice magazine poll from 1945 through 1953.
This comprehensive study of Wild Bill Elliott covers his entire career as a western star. It begins with a biographical sketch of Elliott and then discusses each of his 78 starring roles as well as his more than 130 supporting roles. The discussions include studio, release date, alternate titles, cast and credit listings, songs, location filming, color, running time, source, story synopsis, notes and commentary, reviews and summation of the film. Appendices include Elliott's short films, TV and radio appearances and comic books.
