Westerns

The American West has always fascinated movie goers, even though much of the Old West never was. Russian nobility toured, eccentric Englishwomen toured, and authors wrote wild stories that seeped into the minds of us all. Gunslingers, cattle rustlers and savage Indians are part of the myth. Other iconic elements include the hanging tree, stetsons amd spurs, lassos and Colt 45s, stagecoaches, gamblers, long-horned cattle and cattle drives, prostitutes (or madams) with a heart of gold, and more. Alice's Westerns, or Cowboy Films are listed alphabetically below, be sure to check out 'Spaghetti Westerns' sub-featured in green on the left, and 'TV Westerns' under 'Television Shows'.
