WHAT IS A WESTERN FILM?
Film series introduced by Carl Kozlowski, Arts Editor and Film Critic, Pasadena Weekly followed by Q&A.
The Western is a genre of various arts which tell stories set primarily in the latter half of the 19th century in the American Old West, often centering on the life of a nomadic cowboy or gunfighter armed with a revolver and a rifle who rides a horse. Cowboys and gunslingers typically wear Stetson hats, bandannas, spurs, cowboy boots and buckskins. Recurring characters include the aforementioned cowboys, Native Americans, bandits, lawmen, bounty hunters, outlaws, soldiers, and settlers. The ambience is usually punctuated with a Western music score, including American and Mexican folk music, such as Country, Native American music, New Mexico music, and rancheras.
