Movie Reviews

Great history of the western movie!
T. Armstrong | Fayetteville, NC USA | 09/16/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are a big fan or even a casual fan of westerns this DVD is for you. It traces the evolution of the western from one-reel silent movies to the modern era and documents how they have changed over the years in both presentaion and theme. The old footage alone of John Wayne as a singing cowboy and the story of how many of the early stars often had to do dangerous stunts in their films alone is worth seeing. So if you are a western movie person don't miss this wonderful documentary!"

""When Cowboys Were King" is a wonderful piece of nostalgia for those of us to whom these "Kings" were friends in the 40s and 50s. Those "shoot-um-ups" are still fun to watch--good clean entertainment that drew a clear line between good and evil; the good always prevailed. We knew, even then, that was not always the case, but the reality of things did not diminish our enjoyment of this fine entertainment. God bless 'em everyone."
