Edward Buscombe provides an illuminating guide to a hundred key films of the genre, from Broken Arrow to The Wild Bunch by way of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, A Fistful of Dollars, The Magnificent Seven and The Searchers. Each entry includes a plot synopsis, major credits, and a commentary on the film’s significance, together with its production and exhibition history. Edward Buscombe’s introduction to the volume discusses the criteria for selecting a mere hundred essential Westerns out of the thousands that have been made since the birth of cinema. He considers the relative weight to be attached to the acknowledged great directors of the genre, such as John Ford and Sam Peckinpah, and to lesser known but significant figures such as Delmer Daves. He takes stock of the contribution of the great Western stars, including John Wayne, James Stewart and Clint Eastwood. And he argues for a selection that takes into account Westerns of the silent era, B-Westerns and singing cowboys, and those Westerns made outside America.

Unforgiven / Edward Buscombe
London: bfi Publishing, 2004.
Call No: 79UNF BUS Author: Buscombe, Edward Source: UK Place: London Publisher: bfi Publishing PubDate: 2004 PhysDes: 95 p. : ill (some col). ; 19 cm Series: BFI modern classics Subject: UNFORGIVEN (US, Clint Eastwood, 1992) Summary: "Edward Buscombe explores the ways in which 'Unforgiven', sticking surprisingly close to the original script by David Webb Peoples, moves between the requirements of the traditional Western, with its generic conventions if revenge and male bravado, and more modern sensitivities. On its appearance in 1992 the film proved a popular and critical success, securing Academy Awards for Best Picture, for Eastwood as Director, Gene Hackman as Best Supporting Actor and Joel Cox as Editor. To date it has proved to be Eastwood's last Western, and may be his swan song in a genre which he has graced for over forty years."
