"Still in the Saddle: A New History of the Hollywood Western"

In the 1940s and '50s, the Western was the most popular movie genre in America. But by the middle of the 1960s, interest in the Western began to wane. Production was scaled back. Critics began to predict the genre’s demise. They said the Western was dead. But they were wrong. Premiering at the Briscoe Western Art Museum, "Still in the Saddle: A New History of the Hollywood Western" tells the dramatic story of the Hollywood Western of the late 1960s to the 1980s. Against a historical backdrop of social unrest, political turmoil, economic uncertainty, and generational change, competing cinematic visions of the Old West vied for Americans’ attention within the pop culture of the day. And as they did so, the Western remained as rich and entertaining as at any time in its history. "True Grit," "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," "The Wild Bunch," "Little Big Man," and "The Outlaw Josey Wales" are just a few of the classic Western films highlighted in this exciting new exhibition. Featuring costumes, props, and dozens of vintage movie posters, the exhibition immerses visitors in the history and artistry of the Western, Hollywood’s greatest genre.
