Film Studies:Western Movies

“Western movies are really over rated, much ado about nothing. Before the 60’s

westerns were made and shown in places called picture houses, cinemas or theaters

depending on where you lived. Kids especially boys loved them. They are all the same:

good guy sheriff, bad guy outlaw, some deputies, cowboys, townsfolk and the dancing girls at the local saloon for a bit of fun to appeal to the females. They were so simple

that today’s kids would be bored watching them. In the 60’s academics became

involved. They grouped movies into the different categories. Each category became

known as a genre. The name of this type of studies came to be known as genre studies.

Genre studies people are saying that western movies might be cheap, but there is a

common thread found in each one of them. Actually they do have a point. The

good guy wears a white hat and the bad guy wears a black hat. When the guy with the

white hat and the guy with the black hat come face to face in the street there’s going to

be a gunfight. Cattlemen are loners and misunderstood. Townsfolk depend on the

sheriff to protect them from the bad guys. There is something westerns have in

common with other films made in other countries. All sorts of films have been made

and the characters and plot are similar, but with some differences. The setting moves

to another country and the characters change according to that countries national

heroes. There are Japanese films with samurai, eastern block movies have the red

western films with the Russians involved and South African movies have Zulus in them.

The story is the same. The heroes create order out of chaos and make everything safe

for the average citizen. Who the hero is depends on which side makes the film,

because they can be the good guys in one film but the bad guys in another. If you

watch ‘dances with wolves’, you’ll remember that the Indians were good and the US

cavalry was bad. This is one of the exceptions to the rule in American movies. The

idea of the western film not only transcends geography but also transcends time.

Some shows made about the future are really based on the idea of the western. Gene

Roddenberry of the star track fame says his star track is based on the old wagon train

series”

(Another voice)

“I’ve never heard of wagon train. Could you tell us a bit about it?”

(Back to narrator)

“Wagon train was a really popular series located in the late 50’s and early 60’s. It

was about people who got together and formed a group to travel overland looking for

land to live and settle down on. They were opening the Wild West for Europeans in

store odds. The old Indians didn’t like it and they attacked the white people many

times. People fell ill and died. Babies were born. They got stuck in bad weather,

wheels came of wagons and the cavalry had to rush out and help them. It is fairly

light hearted compared to today’s violence”

(Another voice)

“This doesn’t make sense. I thought that in the US everyone is supposed to get along

and there are laws against discrimination.”

(Back to narrator)

“This is movies we are talking about and not the real world. It was a different time too.

American history isn’t as perfect and as kind as the history books say.

Multi-culturalism, colonization and imperialism aren’t mentioned in the same breath

as wagon train”

(Another voice)

“I am just wondering. I watched ‘outland’ the other night. It was kind of like ‘kind noon’. Am I right? Is that the kind of thing you mean?”

(Back to narrator)

“Yes it is. If you know this type of show, you’ll really see patterns in films. The only

thing is once you do it, it takes the thrill out of watching them. What is interesting is

that some of the films being made in the US are actually cultural remakes of movies

from other countries. ‘The magnificent 7’was a remake of korosawa’s ‘the 7 samurai’.

‘A fistful of dollars’ and ‘last man standing’ were copies of korosawa’s ‘ugimbo’. The

twist there is that ‘ugimbo’ was based on ‘red harvest’ -- an American detective novel

by Dashil Hammond. Sometimes it gets a bit complicated when looking for the real

origin of the movie. There is another type of movie which is based on westerns. It is

called post apocalyptic. This is when a future society is trying to rebuild after

something awful has happened. Its actually format a lot on the westerns which are

about opening the Wild West frontier. ‘The postman’ and the ‘mad max’ series are 2

examples. From the Wild West to future societies they are just different costumes and

sets.”
