The Hollywood Western

By the early 1950s, Hollywood was making close to 50 Western feature films a year which was roughly 25% of the industry’s total film production. By the late 1950s, Westerns made up seven of the ten most popular shows on television. In fact, they still enjoy popularity today. Consider that the modern western Yellowstone was the most popular drama on television last season. Why? Our aim is to propose some answers to the question of why the Western genre has endured in American culture. The first showing will be Shane (1953).
