The Old West was still there when the movies arrived. Cowboys and outlaws saw a heaven-sent chance to relive their youth--and get paid for it--by working in films.

Hart, who dignified the genre with films like Narrow Trail and Tumbleweeds. These films were a celebration of the West, establishing a tradition that continues to this day
