For the first time, this book tells the 'lost' story of the 1930s Western. Written from a concern to understand Western films primarily as products of Hollywood's studio system, it recovers the context in which Westerns were produced, exhibited and viewed in the 1930s. Peter Stanfield highlights the hitherto marginalised 'B' or 'series' Western, the significance of female audiences, the role of independent exhibitors and of censorship in shaping film production. The book includes illustrations from the following films: Arizona, The Big Trail, Billy the Kid, Cimarron, Destry Rides Again, Dodge City, In Old Arizona, In Old Santa Fe, Jesse James, The Lash, Let Freedom Ring, Oh, Susanna!, Oklahoma Kid, The Plainsman, Ramona, Santa Fe Trail, Stand Up and Fight, Three Godfathers, Trail of the Lonesome Pine, Tumbling Tumbleweeds, Union Pacific, Virginia City, The Virginian, and The Westerner.

About the Author:

Peter Stanfield is Senior Lecturer in Film Studies at the University of Kent. His main area of interest is the cultural history of American film, with a particular focus on film genres and cycles, and popular music and film. His current research is concentrated on and around post-war film cycles, in particular boxing movies, Mickey Spillane adaptations, Mark Hellinger Productions, Eagle-Lion crime films, the series of Audie Murphy westerns, and the psychologisation of the western hero.

Review:

“Full of insights, painstaking scholarship and lively writing. It will become a classsic. A definite recommendation.” –Steve Neale, Research Professor in Film, Media and Communication Studies, Sheffield Hallam University and author of Genre and Hollywood (Steve Neale)
