5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Hollywood Westerns and American Myth by Robert B. Pippin, 13 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hollywood Westerns and American Myth: The Importance of Howard Hawks and John Ford for Political Philosophy (Castle Lectures in Ethics, Politics, & Economics) (Castle Lectures Series) (Paperback)
This is a demanding,impressive and very interesting book. It focuses on three Westerns: The Searchers and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance by John Ford and Red River by Howard Hawks and shows that they are as many-layered and complex as many of the so-called great works of art and literature.These films ask questions about the myths surrounding the founding of America as a society and a nation. I would recommend this book to Western buffs like me who loved a the Westerns of the fifties and sixties and who don't mind using their brains every now and then.
