Old Western Movies

The legend of the frontier and the wild west has been set in pop culture in large part to the western movies from the 1930s through the 1950s. These classic movies first started with the "true cliffhanger" serial and then leading to the great John Ford westerns starring John Wayne.

The first western movie dates back to The Great Train Robbery in 1903. Not only is this the first western, it was the first movie with a coherent plot.

Zorro began in the pulp magazines in 1919 with the story "The Curse of Capistrano" by Johnston McCulley. Zorro became one of the most popular Western heroes of all time with countless appearances on the big screen including a number of serials as well as feature films.

These old western movies are part of American pop culture and the history of Americana.
