My what a great asset to lovers of Western Films, covering the silent era as well as the talkies, giving a complete cast and production list, as well as a brief story line on the film. A must for all Western Film buffs.

Christmas gift for my elderly father in law. He loved it! He likes westerns and he can use this to find new (old) movies to watch. He also liked the nostalgia value of looking through the movie information.

"Western Movies: A Guide to 5,105 Feature Films" by Michael R. Pitts is a very thorough book, which covers the film company, year of release, story creator, director, cast, very brief synopsis, and Pitts's own review of each Western film. Pitts points out that these reviews are only his opinions and should be used as a guide for the viewer, not as the final word. There are a number of black and white photos scattered here and there through the book.
5.0 out of 5 stars If you are a western movie fan, Michasel Pitts' book is a great reference in your library. 11 Sept. 2013

Pro: list includes director, script writer, many actors ( more than in other publications ).
A very good description of the movie and frequently an opinion.
M. Pitts includes many of the very first western movies.
Con: I can think of none.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book I do recommend it. 13 April 2013
By Mario P. Alves - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I recommend this book, although I do not agree with some remarks.  But, is one of the best in its genre, there are many details and information exploited. The author is knowledgeable about of the matter.
