The Western was among the first genres developed by American filmmakers. The picturesque scenery of the American West (located right in Hollywood's backyard) and the dramatic potential of stark confrontations between good and evil proved irresistible to directors and audiences alike. Today their efforts loom large in the country's collective unconscious defining to a very large extent what it means to be an American-and the films have lost none of their appeal. This stellar set starring such immortals as John Wayne Randolph Scott and Roy Rogers collects some of the very examples of the genre.
