A good time capsule of western shows and films.
8 October 2012 | by (working in Movieland) – See all my reviews

*Spoiler/plot- How the West was Fun: A Western Reunion, 1979, A small quiet saloon with a Western TV show recognizable bartender is the place for a cowboy reunion with tall tales, clips, dancing, singing, comedy and saloon dancing girls performances.

*Special Stars- Host: Glenn Ford, HUGE list of TV and film western stars from child to adult from leads to 'side-kicks' and lead character actors.

*Theme- The golden age of westerns was really fun and many just didn't see it at the time.

*Trivia/location/goofs- TV film, Some famous 'missing' Western folks was for contractual matters or death.

*Emotion- A very enjoyable show for it's on screen appearances of lost actors of a American genre. Even today, very watchable and enjoyable. Fun to see all these actors in their recent prime. A good time capsule of western shows and films.
