Description

Collected in a luxurious oversized format and meticulously restored, presented in as sharp quality as they have ever been seen. Plus, the fascinating history of the Western, from its low-budget beginnings to its glorious peak as Hollywood’s most popular genre. Tom Mix, John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, High Noon, The Magnificent Seven, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly — the Western’s brightest stars and biggest blockbusters are all represented.

Hollywood has always mythologized the American frontier — an untamed, rough-and-tumble land where a man could go as far as his wits, grit, and six-shooters at his hip could take him. From Stagecoach to Red River to The Wild Bunch to  The Unforgiven, it’s all about dusty vistas, gruff heroes, brutal shootouts, moral quandaries, and metaphors for our modern times. Now the movie posters of this quintessentially American genre are finally celebrated as the iconic fixtures of Americana they are.

Written by editor and film scholar Mark Fertig (Film Noir 101: The 101 Best Film Noir Posters From the 1940s-1950s).
