This mammoth book provides a feast of entertainment for movie western fans. Originally published under the title, "Westerns for a Rainy Saturday", this greatly expanded edition details not only typical matinee westerns like "Riders of Destiny" (starring John Wayne), "The Duel at Silver Creek" (one of the best pictures Audie Murphy ever made), "In Old Monterey" (an unusual entry from Gene Autry with one of the most large-scale action climaxes ever lensed for a "B" western), and "Rough Riders' Round-Up" (another very unusual entry from Republic, this time with Roy Rogers as the nominal lead, but would you believe, it's actually the heroine, Mary Hart aka Lynne Roberts, who has the larger role?), but the big "A" productions everyone has heard of, e.g. "The Searchers" (John Wayne), "San Antonio" (Errol Flynn), "The Big Country" (Gregory Peck) and "The Spoilers" (Marlene Dietrich, Randolph Scott as the villain for once, and John Wayne). Hollywood doesn't make movies like these any more, but fortunately they are still available on cable TV and DVD. In addition to all the films that are reviewed and detailed with complete cast, technical credits and release information, this book also provides an index to Charles Starrett's complete career (a listing with main cast details for all his 166 movies), and a list of all the "Zorro" pictures (including serials and television).
