    This is a great course in comparing Western film genre to the actual times of both the west but also of the 1940's -,50,s. The films are well chosen and the discussion and quizzes are well developed and thought out. The instructor is very good at responding very quickly to students. If you enjoy movies and old westerns and want to know more about them this is the class for you.
