Western Movies Are Not A Thing From The Past!

The Western Movies have been around since the late 1950’s.  Television became popular in the 40’s and 50’s , this genre quickly became a favorite.  Although traditional movies like The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp and the TV version of Gunsmoke faded in the 1960’s,  the 90’s introduced hour long versions  like Firefly(available on Netflix) a sci -fi/western  series.

 

 Stories are set primarily in the later half of the 19th century in the American Old West, Western Canada and Mexico during the period from about 1860 to the end of the so-called Indian Wars.

Some  Notable TV Westerns include Gunsmoke, The Lone Ranger, The Rifleman, Bonanza, The Virginian, Wagon Train, The Big Valley, Maverick, and many others.  These titles may not be available on Netflix but we have compiled a lengthy list which started out as Top 10 but quickly grew during our research.
