Westerns enthralled movie audiences almost from the beginning of cinema. The very first American narrative film was a western. The popularity of the genre continued almost unabated until the early 1950's when cowboy and Indians racing across the western skyline began to fade. But during the "Golden Age," cowboy and Indian films were tops at the box office and on the little TV screen across the United States and around the world. The films were basic morality plays and had a tremendous effect. Our discussions will have a special emphasis on westerns made in Arizona.
