Classic Western Movie Posters

Often, what an individual knows about the American West is acquired through the classic western. The Buffalo Bill Center of the West has a number of movie posters of that genre. Read through them to get a sense of the "hype" the poster wanted to create. "Bravely they fought against a wave of lawlessness and deadly killers!" "The last frontier of untamed women...and fighting men!" "They plundered for power across a fabulous empire!" "A stranger marked for murder in a lawless stronghold of desperate men..." Actors made names for themselves acting in one western after another--folks like Rex Allen, Gene Autry, Allan Lane, and George McCready. After you've explored the posters below, how would YOU describe the American West?
