Review:

Code of Honor gives readers a lavishly illustrated insider's view of the twists and turns that arose during the making of these three Westerns. (Melissa Ragsdale Cowboys and Indians)

Much has been written about Western film, but Blake's focus and combination of passion and scholarship make this title truly unique. It should be a required purchase for academic libraries supporting film studies programs and is highly recommended for public libraries as well. (M.C. Duhig Library Journal)

If you like westerns, Code of Honor is mandatory reading. (Scott Eyman Cox News Service)

You will thoroughly enjoy Code of Honor. (Western Clippings)

Manages to add to our knowledge of films that have been analyzed to death. On-set photos are priceless. (Laura Wagner Classic Images)
